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.

... this big. The Turkish warehouse (stunning architecture) on it is now converted to a museum. Saw a beautiful Baroque church that the facade is decorated in beautiful frescos. The only pitty was it had been destroyed a bit in WWII from bombing.
... left over bananas, two boiled eggs & tins of tuna suddenly more appetizing. We were on the road by 9:30am. We did a lap of the city, to see it covered in snow & then hit the road headed for Venice, Italy.
Everyone was so excited to be heading to Italy, but sad also to be moving on. That's traveling!
The snow was falling really heavy which made driving a lot harder for Clint. We needed to get him a decent breakfast quick. We didn't need to add hunger ...
... crowded piazzas, doing a spot of shopping & enjoying the sights. We found a little cafe by a little canal for lunch. After Nanna returned to Noordam for a nap, I joined the queue outside St Marks, now much shorter and moving quickly. So glad I did as the interior was well with seeing, though no photos allowed. This site was (at some time, anyway) the final resting place of St Mark, so that meant we visited three of the ...
... overlook the water it is an extra €5 cover charge to enjoy the view. WTF? Do people really pay this? I guess they do as everywhere was doing a roaring trade. Jac had visited Venice about 13 years ago on her Contiki tour. That visit was on September 11- what is now an infamous day in history. She often tells the tale of a local stallholder telling them "America, boom" after their Gondola ride through Venice's canals. Back then there was no instant news feeds on ...
... clear too. We left about 4.00pm and caught a ferry back via yet another route that we had not yet been on. It took us round the top side via the island where the Murano glass products come from. By the time we were back we felt we had seen as much of Venice as you could from the sea. Nice meal for tea but Karen was chucking up by mid night. It seems that she has an allergy to really yummy seafood dishes. In London she was crook after a seafood risotto and the same ...
