Waiting in the lounge to disembark. Seems like very little is happening. But we aren't in a rush as can't check in to our hotel until 1pm. Back at Hotel Delle Rose. (See comments). Walked into Mestre town. Very nice locals town with attractive piazza where we had coffee. The Venice canals come all the way over to Mestre so there are boats in the …
... agreed that the best part if being in Venice was 'getting lost in Venice'... maybe I should have map read after all! OOOooh I nearly forgot to say ( how could I)... On both evenings we had tea at a pizzeria recommended to us by our hotel and I have to say it was fabulous! Rachel had a carbonara pizza on both nights and I had a speck and rucola pizza which can only be described as divine! It was such a charming pizzeria ...
... is available but is only half a cup with the rest froth, cafe latte is reasonable if you like strong coffee and a flat white is unheard of!!!! These ones were big, hot and were made with REAL milk for a change - not bloody UHT! Back on the road and we started to encounter some of the low lying wet areas in the lead up to Venice, there were many lakes and rivers including The Po River which is the largest in Italy. Eventually we came to the huge ...
... they wrapped them for us too. We then went to a book store and bought a book about Lucca for Zio Mario.
The shopping was quick really…so it gave us some time for a 'passeggiata' around the streets and La Mura… that’s something that I know will stay with us forever…the peacefulness of just strolling around…I hope we do the same back in Perth…I’m sure we will.
Greg and Jacinta returned later for a pre-dinner drink ...
... involve millefiori rods that are stretched, melted and twisted. The Coneys ended up buying the most beautiful one -- a vase that Len, our tour director, lusts after.
We wandered in and out of the shops at the factory but my sole purchase was a millefiori pillbox. The items here were authentic but the knockoffs in the market place (we found out later) were substantially cheaper. It makes a difference if ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
This hotel is in an excellent location. In the quiet suburban street yet only a 10 minute bus ride from the Piazza Le Roma.
The owner is very helpful and has good English.
The room is clean but not fancy. With air con and shutters so quiet and cool.
The good thing about staying in Mestre is that you can get away from the madness of Venice and the thousands of tourists for a while. It is only a 20 minute flat walk to the centre of Mestre with a good convivial atmosphere and bars and restaurants surrounding the large piazza there. The area also some good small restaurants closer to hotel and good shops. A supermarket on the corner.
The breakfast is very good and there is free wifi throughout.
