... the city, and if you don't, will have a lifetime of regret.
Another major symbol of Venice are the masquerade masks. Every kiosk of souvenirs carries mask after mask to please the tourist in search of the quintessential costume to wear proudly at any masquerade party. They can be found in every color and for as little as 3 euros or for as high as 30-40 euros.
Murano Glass- an additional wonderful symbol of Venice. ...
... ride.....Yes the boats where the man steers from the back and wears a striped shirt & a hat and may even sing while he takes you around the city. We then hit our local street for a great meal and some ice creams for dessert......imagine this, ice creams for 5 people for 7.50 euros.... We get ripped off so much in Australia !!! Tomorrow we head for Florence via train, will let you know when we get there. ...
... more room and you have a little fold out table between you and the people who are sitting facing you. This is good when you are travelling in 3's or 4's as you can chat. Also, of course you can get up and move around easily than on a plane. Also there is more to look at out the window -'like the Swiss alps. We also went around lake Como in Italy but this was harder to see as we were a bit of a distance away from it. So really all we saw ...
What a beautiful city!!! There is nothing to compare this city too! So unique and confusing!! Spending the day here has been a true blessing. My day started waking up on the night train from Munich at 630 this morning. I Did not get a good night sleep, unfortunately, but that did not stop me from enjoying the city. After getting off the train, I hopped on a water bus get we close to my hostel. The directions given from the water bus station were horrible, so I spent an ...
We are back online - make sure you're comfortable as there are a week of blog in read. We have about 3 hours to kill before boarding the cruise ship but the weather has charged for the worse with strong wind and heavy rain. This is certainly not the way you want to go boating, even if it's a big big boat/ship. We are praying the weather will improve before we have to take our cases out of the hotel ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Panorama Venice
We had an enjoyable 4 night stay at the Hotel Panorama in January 04.
Very nice rooms, excellent staff, friendly and helpful. Good english skills. Very nice Breakfast in the AM. This hotel is on the island of Lido, so you have to take a 20-30 minute vaporetto boat to get there from the city of Venice. However the boats run every ten minutes during the day and most of the evening, so access is convenient. You can get a deal at the hotel that includes a three day pass on the boats. If you want to be in the middle of the Venice "action" this won't be the hotel for you, but if you like a little "separation" from the city, it's a nice place to stay. One last thing-Lido is pretty much shut down in January, so there not much to do there at this time of year.
A wonderful hotel with great service -- from the moment we checked in to the moment we left. Definitely take advantage of the free shuttle to Murano, but don't feel compelled to buy at the factory: There are many great locations.
The only caveat: Public transportation to/from Lido is great; however, when we arrived by train in Venice, we discovered that the Vaporetto workers had called a strike (which actually ended up lasting three days). Taxi service to the island cost about 70 Euros, and the limited "lifeline" transport service is about a 45-minute walk away from the station. None of this the fault of the hotel, of course...
A Great Hotel
A great hotel...very friendly and reasonably priced. First class staff, first class breakfast and first class welocme. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel. I would certainly go again.
Greatest little hotel in Italy
This cozy hotel is so charming. Newly renovated with modern amenities and spotlessly clean. Transportation is just across the street. Staff is most friendly and helpful.
We are going back in April 2004!
All the reviewers were right.
For our trip to Venice in October 2003, I checked the reviews on this hotel and everything said was accurate: clean rooms, helpful staff, etc. We got a great package deal from Madrid to Venice despite late booking. Definitely recommends booking on expedia and this hotel. One warning: avoid the restaurant on S.M. de Elisabetta Street (the main street on Lido) near the hotel (on the right side of the street as you walk away from the piazza): its very unfriendly. T. C.

Definitely the place to stay in Venice!!!
From the location, to the very friendly and accomodating staff, to the private beach, to the free taxi service and free guided private tour of the murano glass factory, this is definitely the place to stay.
Lido is a beautiful island and the private beach is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Oh, and by the way, the first pizza place on the left, when your headed to the beach, is definitely the place to eat (and its only a hundred yards from the hotel).
We loved our stay at the Hotel Panorama, and if we get the chance to go back to Venezia, we'll definitely be back to the Panorama!!!
Great hotel...excellent location. Lido is a beautiful uscale island only 30 min by vaporetto from Venice, but the vaporetto station is right in front of hotel and the hotel is right in the plaza area (though not noisy). We had a charming view in a very reasonably priced room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice continental breakfast.Panorama offers a free shuttle to Murano's Marco Polo glass factory. Murano is the home of glass blowing. Don't feel pressured to buy at the factory they take you to, and look around the island's many shops and factories and ask lots of questions. We didn't get info on VAT ahead of time.
This is a must
if you want a very, very special occasion, the hotel panorama is the place to stay. from the minute we walked in the door, we felt at home. the hotel concierge, gianfranco busetto, and the hotel manager, davide baldan, did everything to make this a perfect holiday. our room was sparkling clean and every effort was made to assure we were taken care of. we would definitely stay at the hotel panorama again and recommend it highly. the concierge took care of our dining reservations and points of interest to visit with as great of care as he would for his own family. the staff was friendly and their breakfast was delightful. a VERY fun hotel to stay in.Pamela A.
