... Doges who were the political leaders of old Venice so very spectacular but not particularly my cup of tea and it is always a battle in this type of place with the girls who alternate between running about like crazy or moaning about how tired they are. While there we saw and crossed the Ponte dei Sospiri which is where the prisoners were led away to the cells. We also saw what I think might be the world's largest oil painting ...
... share amongst the six people in our gondola, and were rowing next to another group (people from our tour) who had a piano accordion player and singer on board for entertainment! A few of us from the same hotel then chose to stay on the island together (it was about lunchtime and the tour part was over for the day). We (us, the girl from Perth, the Hawaiian lady and son, Chuck and the Peruvian) asked some locals for directions to a good seafood restaurant. The first one ...
... An found out it was about a 2minute walk from where we first started!!! We learnt very quickly that maps probably weren't going to help us that much in Venice.. we were probably just going to need to follow our noses!
After checking into our hostel.. We found out our dorm room was about a 15minute walk away!
I had worn jandals thinking that we would be getting some nice weather in Venice as we had in Florence... but it turned ...
... very old and also very interesting. Pouring with rain today so we wanted to find the Synagogue and get inside out of the weather. Another very helpful lady asked us where we were headed and she took us by the arm and showed us the door to the Museum (from the outside you would never know it was even a museum). We were just in time to take the English speaking tour of the three Synagogues in the area. The first Synagogue was the oldest, built in the ...
were a little despairing about the Accadamia gallery but surprising
there was no queue at all there. We walked straight in and could
browse unhindered. Interesting to see how different was the
Renaissance in Venice compared with Florence. In Venice the
Bellini's and Titian's are all religious works. There seems to be
none of the secular and classical themes of Florentine painters such
as Bottichelli. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Bologna Hotel - Mestre Station
We had a pleasant experience at this hotel. It was very clean and quiet. Hotel staff was very helpful and spoke english. The hotel is right by the train station and only a 10 minute train ride to Venice. If you are planning to stay here, ask the staff about a small resturant down the block....great food and wonderfully priced.
We have just returned from our trip around Italy and the Best Western Hotel Bologna was our second stop. It was, by far, the best place we encountered. Rooms were immaculate and spacious! The bathroom was very nice as well. Front desk staff were very helpful and the breakfast was fabulous. The location is great too, since you avoid the costly Venice hotels and can stay here. Venice is one train stop away and it is very comfortable travelling back and forth. It beats trying to get your luggage on to one of the water taxis in Venice. As well, this hotel had nearby supervised parking which was important to us since we had a rental car. All in all, this hotel provided the utmost of comfort needed for a 2 night stay.
Nice and Cheap
Great rooms, the best breakfast, helpful staff (One gave a recommendation for a restaurant, the best food I had the whole trip).
Location is good for the price, 1 train stop from the island, so nearly all trains stop there, its easy getting back and forth. I would stay there again if Venice itself wasnt such a tourist trap.
At first I was concerned about this hotel due to the lack of reviews on trip advisor. However I must say that this hotel is wonderful. Rooms are spacious and boast a very contemporary European styling. Bathroom was a showpeice with radio, tub and shower. Hotel is very environment concerned, lights/Air condition go out automatically if you are not in the room (your room key card must be in card slot to get the juice flowing in your room). I am not an environmentalist, but I appreciated the efforts the hotel made. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Dialup jacks were available in rooms, a paid internet station was at the front desk. Continental breakfast was WONDERFUL...wow, I've never had so much food. Stairs were available if you want to skip waiting on the 1 very small elevator. Staff was friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money.
And a Great Breakfast!
We had a suite, sleeping 4, for about $200euros. Quiet, clean, comfortable, modern, and fancier than we expected! The breakfast was just amazing--juice, cereal, cold cuts, pastries, coffee, tea, fruit, etc. And it's just across from the train station: Venice is 10 minutes away.
Loved Hotel Bologna
We had great, modern, renovated rooms with wonderful baths, and the hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The location was wonderful for us, being right across from the train station that offers frequent 10-minute trips to Venice. It proved to be a better alternative for us than driving into Venice, parking and having to lug our bags into a water taxi or something. This was one of our favorite stays in Italy.
