Venice sells itself and we made the most of our time. My concern was the logistics and the tour company hit it out of the park. The representative we met at the train station was thorough and explained how we would use the Vaporetto and the location of our hotel. The hotelLa Fenice et Des Artistes was good with a good breakfast but try as we might, we could not control the heat.
From meeting the rep at Florence Station to the return trip was fantastic. Venice is beautiful, the weather was great and the hotel Ca' Dei Conte was central and fabulous. Would recommend this trip to anyone. Also included the water boat which we used. Bellisimo!
had to go, glad I went
high speed train was an excellent travel option
Train was fast, hotel and its location were good. We thought we'd be rushed in Venice with only two days but we had plenty of time to do and see.
Very smooth, easy to follow instructions for train times and locations of water taxis etc provided by the agent. The only negative we would have is the location of the hotel used and the price.
The greeting at the train station was less than expected. The train ride was wonderful considering we were riding coach. Coach to first class on Italian trains is negligible. There is no-one to greet you on the receiving end so be comfortable in finding your way around. The hotel was adequate but certainly not the 4 star we had hoped for. A bit of a funky smell. Venice is absolutely worth the effort. Despite the hosts and hotel, I would recommend you take the plunge. The atmosphere and gastronomical experience is worth the trip. Try to eat at the Taverna La Fenice.
