Scenic motorways to Venice

A travel blog entry by redwatt


This morning we boarded our coach and were taken with a local guide to the shooting locations for Sound of Music. It's very unusual because the movie was a hit with the English speaking world but the Austrians had never heard of it until the tourists started asking about it. Now it has been introduced into their culture.

Venice in the sunshine...

A travel blog entry by missmm_2206


What you can achieve in a day of sight-seeing in a city like Venice is nobodies business. God it was a good day. The sun was shining, we were mostly on our own (for the morning anyway). I had managed to give the Mormon couple from the tour the slip and life was good.

And you know I have been to Venice three times on this trip - but I knew …

Pottering around Venezia

A travel blog entry by redwatt


Our tour group was doing a walking tour of Venice this morning. We did one of those two years ago with the Queen Elizabeth, and we are suffering a little with head colds so we decided to just take our time this morning. There was a soccer match playing just across the canal this morning and the fans really were singing for their teams. Bob thought …

It's so hard to say goodbye :(

A travel blog entry by karenmorlock

This morning we said good bye to all of our friends on the beautiful Norwegian Jade. When I say friends, I mean not only Doug and Kristen, but Carol, Gusti, Radu, Joseph, Juan, Javier, Larry, good grief, the list could go on for days! Needless to say, we met lots of the staff and they were so amazing, they made this whole cruise even more enjoyable …

Buon Giorno from beautiful Venice!

A travel blog entry by karenmorlock


After a long morning of traveling, most likely getting off at the wrong stop and causing a much longer ride on the slow bus (all the better for sight seeing I guess!!), we're here and ready to start out adventure. Tonight we met the rest of out group for dinner along the waterfront. It was heavenly!! And of course, when in Italy, you must have …

    We have stayed two nights at this hotel in Venice. (we are travelling as part of a tour group and didn't choose this hotel.)

    We are sharing a triple room and its really quite large. The ceilings are at least 15ft high and all the rooms seem to be have been renovated recently and are very modern and clean. Our room has a separate bedroom (with king bed), bathroom (with full bath, toilet and bidet) and a lounge room and writing desk area. There are coffee/tea making facilities and in built cupboards with plenty of coat-hangers.

    Its a very quiet neighbourhood and the windows actually open but have great security grilles so you could leave them open all day if you liked. ).(Although we stayed mid-week so it may be different on the weekends

    The location of this hotel:
    Its a fair way out of the main tourist/busy parts of Venice (ie its actually about 30 mins walk to get to St Marco), but this can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your point of view.

    I have stayed in Venice before (twice) once over near bus station (the mainland) and once right in the centre of the city. I personally like the Sant Elena and its quiet elegance. But I could see how a person who had never visited the city before might feel like they were not quite close enough to the action!

    The restaurant was great - offered a great selection of breakfast foods (we didn't eat lunch here), and dinner was also ok.

    The staff were friendly and very attentive and able to act on requests very promptly.

    Overall - we really enjoyed staying at this hotel and I would have to say that it has been my favourite hotel stay of this current 2 week tour.

    This hotel us located just 3minutes from the water bus stop and is very quaint! It's a former convent, so the grounds are very nice.
