... to be all about.
In a way is good that I came here on my tod for a couple of days, if/when I finally settle down this would of been an ideal place to go for a romantic holiday, or so i would of thought before I visited here. But if I spent a week here it would drive me insane and I would probably end up drowning myself in the beautiful canals!
The most common thing about Venice you hear even lot of people say the place stinks, but it seemed ok to me, however ...

We spent a whole day exploring and getting lost in the tiny streets of Venice.
Catching the ferry to Venice from Fusina made it so easy to get onto the island and get a good view of the buildings.
Tomorrow is Kyle's last day with us, so we're making the most of our time together!
... of mosquitos in during the night...at least that`s what I`m going with in my mind...
Random but sort of funny... When I arrived the hostel in the afternoon I thought I had a room to myself. There was just one bed in the room, a dresser and a desk. I unpacked Blue and made myself "at home." When I arrived back in the evening, the man at the desk was sitting with a young girl. "Shes your roomate," he laughed. Of course ...
... possibly because it was after lunch by the time we got there and therefore shops were open again for the afternoon. Apparently, it’s an unwritten rule that shops are closed over lunchtime. Some articulate the fact on their shop signs. They have these signs with four clocks, two for morning opening and closing and two for afternoon opening and closing. I wish work were like that at home. Some, however, say open 10-6 but are obviously closed around 12 and 1. I tried to ...

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.
