We took an 8 AM train to Venice which only took 1 hour 10 minutes. It was the most dramatic train ride because the train was a Milan - Venice train that only stopped for 2 minutes in Verona. We stood on one end of the platform hoping that the first class cars would be on that end, it turned out that they were on the other end so we started running …
... direction. Making your own way out was not an option; a 3-metre high brick wall surrounds the gardens. With panic threating to set in, we found an exit out of the gardens. Two minutes of walking later, and we came across a strangely familiar street, it was the one we strolled down hours earlier when looking for the gardens. I won’t repeat what was said, but the language was generally confined to four letter words, muttered angrily under our breaths.
Thankfully, the centre ...
... Marco, we headed back to the hotel to change into what Dan classifies as our trendy/casual going out outfits, and left in search of a gondola and gelato. I went with coconut and Dan went with Pistachio flavored gelato and we hopped in a gondola for a late night tour of the city. The gondoleer, was a bit sassy, but fun. He took us from the Rialto Bridge through the side canals and pointed out some of the oldest buildings. It was a great end to a fantastic Venetian day! Nicole ...

We enjoyed pizza with Maria, Rinaldo and friends with vino from their vat and also lemoncello which Maria also made from the lemons on their property. The pav too was a great success (thank you Linda for emailing me the recipe!!), especially with ...

And with such a fantastic place to stay I decided to spend some extra time here after meeting three Canadian girls from Vancouver in Grandma Death’s attic. There are smaller islands just off the coast of Venice that specialize in a couple of different crafts, one being glass blowing and another being lace-making, so that while Venice itself is a mixture of many (very ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsAbbazia Deluxe Venice
If you're staying in Venice for more than 2 nights, it's better to get a more centrally located hotel but for one night and arriving/leaving by train, Abbazia Deluxe can't be beat. There are two Abbazia: the regular and the deluxe. These are the two closest hotels from the train station and if you don't know where they are, you may walk past them (like we did).
Like many Venice hotels, Abbazia Deluxe doesn't have elevator and the reception area is on the second floor. The Lady Giulia helped us carry some of our luggage. Despite being 10 in the morning, our room was ready and fortunately, it was on the second floor so we didn't have to drag our bags through more stairs. Our room had a canal view and it was beautiful, especially the next morning when people started their activities. Giulia gave us a map and told us the city had not changed since the last time we were there 10 years ago.
Upon check out, the gentleman working on reception was not as friendly as Giulia (he was not rude but rather kept to himself). We actually enjoyed the breakfast. They were prepared in the lobby but no chef on duty so the only eggs available were hard boiled egg which is actually our favorite type of egg.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay but we would try something closer to the center the next time we're in Venice.
