... the capital of Croatia, Zagreb is. Apparently people assume that Dubrovonik is. I had no clue, so I have been educated. Phil's father was born in Croatia and he was able to ascertain where the island is that he was born on. It was a long, long way away. Around 500kms north. The country of Croatia has around 1200 islands and around 66 of the islands are inhabited, some with 5 people and some with 1000. Dubrovonik's income is derived primarily from tourism with one person out of ...
... location right close to lots of the more famous attractions. The hotel manager Michelle was totally awesome! He gave us complimentary coffees when we arrived and took our bags. He informed us that they had decided to upgrade our room for us and that they would give us a complimentary drink later in the evening when we came back - love this guy.
Despite feeling a little groggy and dirty from the train we wanted to make the most of the time that we had in Venice. We ...

Round in circles - Mistake # 1
We had thought about walking into Pizalle Roma as it’s a 20 min walk and although we would be dragging bags, we figured that by the time we walked to and then waited for the People Mover we would be at least half way there … so off we went !
We walked past the water shuttle and to the wharf where the MSC Admonia had docked thinking ...
... 2km to go. Perhaps we are wrong so we carry on down the road but when we get to the Excelsior Hotell, we have had enough. There is a bus stop so we catch the next bus which came along. As this was in the wrong direction we had a tour of the island but it was good to het the weight off our feet. So clearly the Satnav was wrong. Is my trust in technology wavering? Back at the hotel, I check out the Internet. Many sites are still offering ...
... watch glass blowing. It was really cool how this guy melted the glass until it was really soft and liquid-like. The glass was on this long rod. He started turning the rod. then he blew into the end of the rod which was attached to the glass. After a minute he had made a vase. We also went into the Doga's Palace. The paintings on the walls were really boring. But the prison was really interesting. ...

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.
