“venice for valentines”

Written on: 15/02/2014

absolutely brilliant time in venice (even if feet did get wet one nightdue to flooding) Hotel la gare is superb & being on murano Island is ideal as you can go into St marks square whenever you want (as the hotel puts on a free shuttle boat) but you can also get away & at night the restaurants upon Murano are far cheaper & better than around St marks,Staff Friendly,Drinks etc reasonable prices for such an upmarket hotel,Worth noting that if you give the hotel advance warning they will collect you from Marco Polo airport in the private shuttle as well as returning you upon your day of departure (saves dragging bags onto the Vaporetto & having to walk with them from one side of Murano to the other ,quite a long walk with typical venitian bridges to carry your bags over, also could be extremely problematic if you arrived this method during a high tide flood as your bags would get wet)
Dont get dressed up,dress for warmth as the evening air is cold & damp but nothing that a couple of "digestives" wont sort out. 3 nights 2 days is ideal time wise unless you intend to travel further out, but well worth the visit! Enjoy
