... we were sitting on the wrong entry and the waiting room was chockers with people trying to get out of the rain. With lots of scusi, we got to the correct ramp as the boat door was being closed. However, he opened it again for us when he saw we had tickets. It was so comfortable sitting back in warm, comfy seats. Peaceful too, because the engine was quiet and there were very few people on the boat. The regular vaporettos usually have standing room only - like being on ...
... and not forgetting the over the top gesticulation that comes with it, just how friendly everyone is and family orientated, how they drive like maniacs on the tiny roads on just big enough to fit a car down and loads more. I am ready to be going home now but I am still enjoying my last two weeks of traveling. Ps I also saw a cruise ship sailing down the canal that was massive! It was really weird that they let them down there, it was taller than even the clock ...
... but I had to go to the bathroom every 40 minutes. I literally visited every bathroom in Venice haha. I realized that the more you look like a tourist the more they charged you to go the bathroom but in return they would give you a coffee which to them is an espresso shot. I noticed on this trip that when I went to the bathroom alone without friends and spoke Italian they were a LOT nicer to me and probably thought I was Italian and pointed where the bathroom was without making them ...
The preceding night always has a significant impact on your attitude for the day. A good decent sleep will have you in a positive mood. A night in which you lay awake for hours on end covered in sweat and being eaten alive by mozzies, only to wake up in the morning and not be able to have a coffee or a shower definitely does not get you off to a good start.
But we trudged over to Venice anyway. At 9am it was already sweltering hot ...
... the only customers - after the music another couple or 2 came in - I like to think because of my music suggestion..! Surprisingly he only had 2 different kinds of bottle dwine - and it was only E7 or E9 - and not bad at all for the price. Pizza pretty good too.
About 11.30 we walked up to main square where we found another pizzeria, this one full of people was a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Boscolo Maggior Consiglio Treviso
We have just returned from an excellent three day break in this Hotel. The hotel is just outside Treviso and well placed for day trips to Venice. We hired a car from Treviso airport, which is only a couple of roundabouts around the ring road from the hotel. It is a bit confusing though-the hotel is on the other side of the roundabout from the road into Treviso if you are driving. We found ourselves going all round the one way system into Treviso and back to where we started so be warned!
Myself and my husband have just returned from a 3 night break in Treviso. We flew into Treviso airport and because there were no taxis available, we managed to get the number 6 bus into the centre of the town, and from there we got a taxi to the hotel at a cost of 5 euros. We found the hotel a good base in which to see venice. The train station was a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The staff at the train station were very friendly and we found it very easy to get into Venice (even with our pigeon italian).
Our stay here was wonderful as suggested by others, but if your main reason is to visit Venice, you may want to reconsider.
My husband and I have stayed twice at the Maggior Consiglio, once in June '04 and again in Dec '04. The fact that we returned for a second visit says a lot about this hotel - it is quiet, clean, classy, and has a friendly English-speaking staff.
We stayed at the Maggior for 3 nights in October 2004. We loved the stay -- the hotel and facilities (pool, great gym) are wonderful. The rooms are bright, large and very modern. The room was extremely clean. The staff at the hotel was very helpful, and Treviso is a wonderful little town to spend an afternoon in.
We stayed in Treviso, which is an upper class Italian town, full of rich Italians. We liked the town, its very quaint and clean, and located 30mins from Venice. The Boscolo Maggior Consiglio is definetly a 4start hotel. Its kind of pricely, but the rooms were big and modern (new). It was very clean. We did have a problem with the tub, it wouldn't drain, for some reason these Vicheroy tubs in italy are defected we encountered the drainage problem once at the Best Western in Siena, which I warn yo to stay away from. The Maggior's one fault is that it is located at the very end of Treviso, and I mean at the border , but closer to Venice. Sorry can't remember what direction. The staff was considerably young, which makes it easy to communicate. They were very helpful at times. But if you can find a four star hotel in Treviso for similar price it might be worth it b/c the bus stop which is located right across the street closes after 8:30pm....and cabs are about $10bux one way. Overall, the service isn't quite 4star America, but definitely 4star European. We had a good time in Treviso. It was the first time we experienced a true Italian meal, recommended by the reservation desk. Thank you. Excellent restaurant.
