My Venezia Review with images

AdvantagesEasy to get around, lots of street signs, lots of shops/tourist shops, beautiful sights/views

DisadvantagesCan be really busy especially at the main sights and some things can be quite expensive

"Venice - Venezia - A very brief history of venice (sorry this section is a bit choppy, Venice has a very long and complex history!) Venice was inhabited in the 5th century by refuges from nearby cities. This original population lived on small islands and marshland which protected the inhabitants from invasion. In the 6th century the inhabitants formed a type of federation which would later become the foundations for the city of Venice. Jumping ..." Read review

Venice In Peril? What About My Wallet?! Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesBeautiful, unique, hasn't disappeared yet

DisadvantagesDaily budget - ouch

"...booked us 5 days in Venice next February”. “DOV’È?” – Or “I’ve Heard Of It, But Where is it?” The city of Venice lies in a shallow lagoon on the north eastern coast of Italy, in its own region known as Il Veneto, which it shares with Il Mestre and Padova (Padua). Flying there takes about 1:40 from Heathrow, all the way to its very own Marco Polo Airport. We really need a new name for Heathrow – how about Dick Turpin International? After all, ..." Read review

Venice the city of Sighs! Review with images

AdvantagesAbsolutely breath taking views around every corner.

DisadvantagesVery expensive packed during the day with day trippers.

"...night before the trip to Venice we had gone to London to see a show and to have dinner and due to an oversight erm probably due to the spiritual variety we actually got on the wrong train ending up in the middle of nowhere with little chance of getting home the right side of midnight. We actually got home at 2AM and had to be up for 4AM to check in for the first flight of the day to Venice. Panic galore trying to organise a taxi to take us to the ..." Read review

Venice - a magical experience (even on a budget!)

AdvantagesAbsolutely stunning and romantic

DisadvantagesNone for me!

"...get a train straight into Venice to Ferrovia (the main station) which is right in the hub of Venice. We arrived into Venice Airport in January 2007. There are lots of methods to get into Venice from the Airport including Water Taxi, Train and bus. We intended to use our budget wisely, and so opted for the cheapest method - bus. We got on an ATVO blue bus which took us direct to San Roma (the cities bus station) for 3 euros' each. The station ..." Read review

venice on a budget

AdvantagesA beautiful and fascinating city, with a very special atmosphere

Disadvantagesthe main tourist attractions are very crowded

"...close to the island of Venice with spectacular views just before you come in to land. As we were staying in Venice for 5 nights the cheapest option for us was to get a 1 week ACTV water bus pass which cost us 50 euros each. We purchased this at an ACTV kiosk at the airport and were given a 2 euro discount on our ACTV bus airport transfer, which subsequently cost us only 4 euro each. The bus water buses work much as any road bus. You wait at the stop ..." Read review
