Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Stella Venice
Excellent value Villa
The Villa Stella is a small very good value Guest House type accomodation. It is kept scrupiously clean by the owners and they provide a really plentiful continental breakfast. A very good price was agreed by contacting the owners directly.
I enjoyed the journey from St Marks square to the Villa "30 Minutes", the views from the waterbus were wonderful.
Some people may find the distance from Lido to Venice a small hinderance but I was glad to escape the crowds at the end of the day.
I would highly recomend Villa Stella to anybody looking for good quality accomodation at a very reasonable price.
Far from town, but a great bargain!
The ONLY negative for this hotel is its location. The island of Lido is a 35 minute boat ride from central Venice. Granted, one only has to do this ride twice each day, but one must also plan for the entire day and not rely on returning to the hotel for supplies, rest, etc... That said, the rooms were VERY clean, the bathrooms were newly rennovated, and the staff was charming. Breakfast was above average for hostel fare. I'd return again because the price far outmeasures the distance. A great value.

Adriatic Adventure 3-11-14 Lucen to Venice
Today was yet to be another grand day on this adventure. Having slept well in one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at I got up early and packed the bike before breakfast. It was a chilly 2 Celsius outside but the sun was shining with a beautiful blue sky. It certainly did not feel that cold.
After a good breakfast of fresh fruit etc I paid my bill and went down to my bike to do the daily check over. Before leaving ...

I love Venezia and could stay there a couple of weeks. We loved just wandering around the streets and hopping on the Vaporetto to see where it would take us. It's like a maze but as long as you end up at the Grand Canal you can find your way back. The only negative would be the expense. A couple sat down to listen to one of the bands in San Marco Square and was charged 15 Euro seating fee and 15 Euro for each drink. A total of 45 ...
... we traveled via bus to the infamous city of Venice. Venice was once the capital of the powerful Venetian Republic. For a millenium the Venetian Republic dominated the Adriatic sea trade routes, controlling much of the cities along the Dalmatian coast (Croatia) and various regions in Greece and eliminating Neretva pirates which plagued the Adriatic sea particularly along the Dalmatian coast. Their decline in ...
... the wardrobe. It's a bit much, but still. We walked down to the Rialto bridge and back, which is about a mile away. And I swear, I don't think I've ever seen more vendors with knock-off purses as I've seen here. They're everywhere! 6 of them on one bridge alone. I thought Florence was bad but that was literally nothing compared to here. There are also a lot of flower guys with roses who walk right up and try to shove a rose on you, staying right on you ...
Yesterday we arrived in Venice, successfully negotiating the Italian railway system once again - it really is very efficient and foolproof. My first impressions of Venice were so different to how I had imagined it, so much better - I think cities in Italy have just got progressively better as we have moved north. Possibly more expensive too!
Although we had planned a day visiting museums and churches in Venice today, we ended up doing ...
