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.

... daily in Venice. It is no different for them than getting on a bus for us in Rome. I will say it was a great way to start and end each of our days, I would take it over a bus ride anytime. We set sail to Lido rather early, because we did not want to try to find our hotel in the dark(we did anyways). Shall I just start off by saying, it is not easy to find a destination with vague directions and help from town members in passing. You know your best ...
... if you had to get lost in any city, it would be Venice. It’s such a beautiful city. The canals, bridges, and gondolas are just like you’ve seen in pictures. And then there are the streets and alleys, lined with restaurants, cafes, shops, and residential buildings, all charming and old and right out of a dream. You pass one beautiful old cathedral or museum after another, and the occasional public square or campo. There is the din of human voices in the ...
We jumped on the train and made our debut visit to Venice. Wow!!!! I have never seen such an amazing place - and I have never seen so many tourists!!! We caught the vaporetto (passenger ferry) from the train station to San Marco where we had a quick look around, took the necessary photos and escaped from pretty quickly; the crowds were just too much. We then spent the day wandering through kilometres of tiny lanes (sometimes less than a metre wide) being ...
We parked the car, once again not without some dramas, as the parking attendant directed us to a space that would have been adequate for a scooter, but not our Citroen. Eventually, the car was parked, and we began our ascent. Our research had given different advice regarding the climb. Let me just say now – it is fairly steep, but the real issue is that the ground is basically a dirt/ash hybrid, and is awfully slippery. Luckily we were both wearing good shoes. ...
... the top of the Campanile di San Marco (a bell tower) and got some splendid views out over the city and its many islands.
Next, I went to see the Fenice Opera House and the Galleria dell'Accademia di Venezia, where I thought I would be able to see Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, but apparently they only show it on very special occasions. The museum was still very interesting though. It had many beautiful Italian Renaissance pieces of art. I even got to see some ...
