Top Answers To Venice Travel Questions

    What about the Lido, an 11-mile-long sandbar that's home to about 20,000 residents? It's a 15-minute ferry ride from Venice proper, plus you can catch ferries to the airport and places like Murano. My wife and I stayed here while visiting Venice in November several years ago; accommodations are cheaper here than on Venice, plus you get a nice view of all the historic buildings and churches as you ride the "Vaporetto" (aka, water bus) each morning. The Lido is also the venue for the Venice Film Festival each September, plus has a touristy beach area that's popular in summer.

    You can do a day trip to Lido di Jesolo if it's the summertime and it's just a boat ride from Venice. Or if you have a car, I suggest visiting the Euganei Hills which are 30 minutes outside Padua for some nice hiking and eating at farm restaurants.

    Many hotels allow you to check in luggage at the concierge desk, but you should call to verify before you arrive. As for the parking garage, it is probably as safe as any garage would be. Just make sure you leave no valuables in the car when you park it.

    My favorite place is Rafaellos--it is ja small restaurant located off the grand canal on a side canal--if you walk away from the entrance to the church in San Marco piazza and go straight through the archway opposite the church, you stay along that walkway past the Hotel Bauer and many other smaller hotels and it is just before you cross a bridge. They have excellent house wine and good pasta at reasonable prices. They have my favorite dessert--Tartufo as well as Tiramisu.
