TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel San Salvador Venice
A great hotel right in the heart of the city. It advertised itself as a Hostel but it really was a beautiful Venetian hotel. My room was a one bedroom with a private bathroom and it was at what I considered a very good prince for its awesome location (right next to the Rialto bridge). Only complaint is that my room was right next to the reception desk, so I could hear the conversations every time someone new checked in. Either way, I suggest this place to anyone visiting Venice.

She pointed directly across the Grand Canal from the restaurant to a small alleyway between two palazzos and said "Go straight through there, do not make any turns, and in 5 minutes you will be in St. Mark's Square."

... the taxis, or obviously a gondola.
Taxis you can haggle, but if you haggle with a gondola you just get a shorter ride. It's €80 during the day, but €100 at night. Share a ride to save money, or I guess you've gone for the romance and will pay and enjoy. So I'll save that for another day.
I took the bus out round the outskirts, then walked back through the city, then took the bus back through the canals as evening came.
I'm sitting here today writing this blog after a 6 hour 15 km walk, in 39 degrees heat. My legs are about to fall off! Venice is amazing. The sound of no cars is very relaxing and the only way to get around is by boat or walking. It is not quite what I expected. I expected you would be able to catch a boat everywhere, but there is a lot of ground to cover by walking ! Today we went to the ...
... someone buying a €1,500 piece....solid glass with fish inside!) the lovely salesman suggested that I look around a little more and find a beautiful piece of glass and he would give me the pendant for nothing!! We got talking to him and he asked if Andrew was Italian ......he said he looked more Italian that him!! Ahhhhh Veronese!! They compared their ages and children and grandchildren....they were born in the same year!! He asked how much longer Andrew would work for? ...
