TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Helvetia Venice
Great location on Lido de Venice. Included breakfast was charming. Right near the water taxis and within walking distance of the. Beach! Bike rentals across the street. Just 15 minutes on the water taxi to the main island of Venice. Good choice to escape the craziness of the cruise passengers but close enough to all the action. Would totally return back to this hotel.

We took the boat and got off by the Accademia bridge and walked a little - what shops were there were mostly closed, so we went back over the bridge and walked around that area (I think it was the San Marco area - but off the beaten path...yes - it was - we managed to find the 'snail shell' staircase - the Bovolo stairs!). ...

It just makes you more sweaty. The trouble was Kate and I had different issues while staying here. Kate has acquired a phobia of mosquitos (warranted, as you'll find out) and as most of you know I have a weird heat thing going on. I wanted the window open as to get some airflow but ...
... square, you immediately notice the church of St. Mark. There are four horses on the top which are used to symbolize the power of Venice. Another important landmark in St. Mark's square in the Campanile of St. Mark's church.
As far as the Carnevale, there are masks EVERYWHERE! Some ranged from paper ones for the day to hand-crafted, painted masks. Many people were dressed head-to-toe in gowns with full-face masks. There was a lot of food, music, and tourist ...
... at this point is for me to have a few drinks, stay up until everyone's asleep and then sleep in the courtyard. I think this is viable, my Russian friends will not allow it. They tell me that they have a rental car and say one of them will sleep in it so I can sleep in their bed. I tell them that won't work and instead we compromise that I sleep in the car. We are walking to the car when we are stopped by the security guard and he is very upset with our plan. After an exchange ...
