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.

... one time, however, they did. The islands mostly housed different convents and monasteries, and you could see the huge stone structure and churches on these islands that have been left to decay for hundreds of years.

We can hardly move but slowly make our way back to the hotel, hoping that we can some how digest all this food by the time we are ready for bed. An end to a beautiful day in Venice !!
... the other dock and the Royal Princess absolutely swamped her size-wise.
Oh !! So there's the People Mover!
We could see the People Mover from the back of the ship as well as the bridge leading into Venice. The shuttle to St Mark was near the stern of the Royal Princess … so that was easy to spot. The roads leading into Venice were easy to spot ... and look, there's the dock. Thank heavens. I was worried that all those barges ...

The next day we took the Ferry to Murano Island, it was about 40 minutes and cost 15 Euro round trip. We were thinking of mom and all of her Murano glass which some of us have inherited. There is a lot of traffic on the waterways and they have lanes divisible by pylons complete with lights for night travel. We visited a glass factory where they ...
