... had paid for the ticket as we had been told was 7 Euros from stop to stop!
With an unusual bit of timing, the bus was in when we got to the station, so we got on and went back to the hotel. Sadly though we got off a stop too early so got a bit lost. Soon we found the way though so got back ok this time!

... seat spoke to her in Italian and the conductor looked at my tickets and said they were for 5th June and it is now July!! I couldn’t believe it!! I had a lot of trouble with that train ticket site as it kept throwing me out and I had to start again about three times until it eventually worked. I’m sure I double checked the dates as I had the same issue with the French trains only I was able to correct them.

As we headed toward San Marco, a gallery beckoned. Inside were the peculiar rotund paintings and sculptures of Botero and a fascinating exhibit of Mikhail Baryshnikov's dance photography.

... Doge (duke). Connected to this museum are also the Archeological Museum and National Library. We worked our way through the museum fairly quickly; we've seen so many ancient artifacts at this point, it's hard to keep it all straight. One of the main bonuses of the Correr Museum, though, is that it's a combined ticket with the far more popular Doge's Palace across the square. It seems that not many people realize this; already having ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Tritone Mestre
Highly Recommended for a visit to Venice
My family and I stayed here for 3 days. The hotel is right across the street from the Train Station with very frequent trains going to Venice Sta. Lucia Station. If you prefer the bus (bus and vaporetto service are both valid when you buy a pass), it goes from the Train Station right to Piazale Roma which is a also a stop on the vaporetto service in Venice. Train or bus...just a few minutes to the canals of Venice! The hotel is very comfortable with excellent air conditioning. Breakfast was first rate. Great helpful and friendly staff. If you need a car rental, Europcar is right around the corner.
The hotel is conveniently located right across the train station. It is also extremely near to the bus-stop where you can take buses to the airport. There are a couple of eateries 2-5min away from the hotel and the food is much cheaper than that in Venice.
Nice, clean hotel - Everything we needed.
The hotel was slightly out of way from Venice. It is not right in the centre - You have to take a short bus trip to get there which may not be ideal for some but we found that it was all a part of the adventure! This hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly. Breakfast was nothing to rave about - Just your standard European buffet. Very simple but everything we needed. The lovely cats lounging outside the restaurant windows were a homely touch (they are the hotels resident cats but they do not come inside of course).
Nice hotel! Across from train station - very good location!
We stayed at this hotel because Venice hotels were too expensive. Very conveniently located across from the train station to the right.
The tobacco shop next to the hotel sells the bus tickets you need to buy to take you into Venice. You will want to buy the bus and water bus pass. It is a quick 10 minute ride on the bus.
We were very impressed with the room and bathroom. Very nicely decorated. Breakfast was great. They offer a pretty good variety of foods.
Just a bridge and a train ride and a world away from Venice
We found ourselves in this very average hotel, after our Tour company switched us from a very attractive hotel on the Venice Lido. Be advised that you must take a bus or train to the Venice Statione, and then get a boat to the city center. The neighborhood is train station drab, with nothing to visit and few restaurants. The hotel itself is European functional, with air-conditioned rooms, and clean facilities. The thermostat was impossible to regulate, so we slept with lots of blankets. Breakfast was okay, dinner was forgettable. I would never pick this hotel again if we return to Venice.
Tritone is a hit !
September 2004. Very conveniently placed for train and bus services.
The staff at the hotel were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble, what they didn't know they found out for us. Room was very clean, towels changed daily. Good continental breakfast. Would definitely stay there again.
My wife stayed here one night. It was our final night in Italy and we moved here from Venice because the bus across the street took us directly to the airport. The hotel itself was good. Rooms were clean and comfortable. However, the staff left a lot to be desired. We ordered the "24 hour" pay per view package that the hotel offered. We were suppose to get 24 hours of movies and internet access for about $25 (U.S.) However, the service to our room went out about midnight. I called the front desk and told them what happen but they had no clue what was going on. I got dressed and went down the the front desk and was told that they didn't know what to do. They said come back in the morning and it would be taken care of at check-out. I was told it would be no problem getting reimbursed for our interupted service. However, that was not the fact. The young girl who checked us out, along with the manager we spoke to, told us nothing could be done there. We would have to wait until we got back to the states and email "other management" with the problem. Yeah right. I tried that and got no response. The staff REALLY seemed like they had no clue when it came to problems. Hopefully, those inadequate staff members have been replaced.
Great hotel. Very quiet room. Very nicely decorated. Good breakfast buffet. Very friendly staff, speak great English. Very nice. Bus to Venice stops in front of the hotel, and the ride takes less than 15 minutes. A one way ticket costs €1 (buy it in the bar to the left of the hotel), but you really should buy a Venice Card (reserve in advance via Internet), which includes the bus (and water bus). Hotel doesn't have own parking space. Park your car in the parking garage directly to the east of the hotel (garage "Stazione"), €6 per night.
Very nicely trimmed 4*
This hotel was excellent. Clean, accessable and the reception staff were very helpful. The breakfast was simple but nice. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The bus and train stations are just across the road. It is worth paying a little less to stay here instead of paying to stay in a central location as the transport into Venice is simple from here. Quality all the way. A class!
I had a very bad experience with Hotel Tritone in Mestre- Venice. They had my credit card details in their secure server for hotel reservation and after a lot of argument from the hotel management in email they refused the reservation. What is the use of the secure server if I have to send my CC details once more by fax or mail as requested later in email.
