Subject: Accomodation in Venice
Hello I can't really help about accomodation in Venice, as I live 1 1/2 hour away and slept in the city only once more than 20 years ago, but I suggest you to check both the price and the location. Some less expensive hotels can be out of hand, if you wish to stay in the heart of things; cheaper accomodations can be found on mainland in Mestre but this involves a 15' bus trip back and forth. I'd also avoid a hotel onlooking a minor canal: it's romantic indeed, but also very damp and sometimes the water stinks... Sorry, didn't want to spoil the Venice magic but hard reality sometimes slap you in the face. Bye Paolo Trieste, Italy
