Youth Hostels in Venice

Through the ages Venice has been known by many names; ‘Queen of the Adriatic’, ‘City of Water’, ‘City of Masks’, ‘City of Bridges’, ‘The Floating City’, and ‘City of Canals’. Described as ‘undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man’ - and that's why today the island city in its entirety is listed as a World Heritage Site, along with its lagoon.

Every year all youth hostels in Venice are flooded by waves of backpackers, city hoppers, art fanatics and food lovers.

During the Middle Ages and Renaissance the Republic of Venice was a major maritime power and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto, as well as a very important centre of commerce (especially silk, grain, and spice) and art in the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century. This made Venice a wealthy city throughout most of its history. It is also known for its several important artistic movements, especially the during the Renaissance period. Venice has played an important role in the history of symphonic and operatic music, and it is the birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi.

Venice has a Humid subtropical climate, with cool winters and very warm summers. Which makes it very popular with backpackers during spring time and autumn. However, youth hostels often offer special deals during Winter.

There are numerous attractions in Venice such as St Mark's Basilica, the Grand Canal, and the Piazza San Marco all located in the city centre. The Lido di Venezia is also a popular destination, attracting thousands of actors, critics, celebrities, and people in the film industry.

When visiting Venice be aware that there is accommodation and youth hostels available on the city island and on the mainland. Both are connected by public transport.

Venice has a contemporary art scene that lives up to its glorious art history. Besides the world renowned Biennial, Venice offers a fantastic variety of museums, art collections and galleries. Including The Peggy Guggenheim Collection of the 20th-century masters, which is the city's third most visited attraction. Make sure to enquire at your youth hostel about current events and offers.

Next to the arts, food is the Venetian’s forte. Most people agree that some of the city’s best gelato is served in Boutique del Gelato, a tiny outlet on busy salizzada San Lio. Traditional dishes from the Veneto are to be found all over the city – like oca in onto (goose in its own fat) or freshwater lagoon fish done in saor at Antica Adelaide. Or perhaps the best polpette (meatballs) in Venice at Ca d’Oro (Alla Vedova). Ask in your youth hostel for more tips on where to find authentic cuisine.

When backpacking in Venice the best way to enjoy the Grand Canal is on board a vaporetto (a rounded 230-passenger boat). Vaporetto tickets can be purchased at most stops, at tabacchi (tobacconists, identified by a white T on a black or blue background), at Hellovenezia offices (see Tickets & passes) and sometimes in youth hostels. On board you can only buy single tickets.

Venice is served by the Marco Polo International Airport, or Aeroporto di Venezia Marco Polo named in honor of its famous citizen. The airport is on the mainland and was rebuilt away from the coast.

Several bus routes link the mainland with Piazzale Roma via Ponte della Libertà, a road bridge connecting the historical centre of the city of Venice to the mainland.

un très bon rapport qualité-prix. l'endroit est très agréable, propre et calme. le personnel est compétent, c'est une très bonne alternative, non loin de Venise, pour dormir sans se ruiner.

camille, 12 August 2013 - Rating: 80%

Se službami hotelu jsme byli spokojeni, obsluha byla příjemná, čistota na jedničku, zařízení hotelu je, vzhledem k ceně za ubytování, naprosto vyhovující. Jen my jsme si zaplatili 4 lůžkový pokoj, tzn. že k posteli s nebesy, viz obrázky, je do poměrně malého pokoje napasována ještě nevzhledná poschoďová postel, ale jak už jsem psala, cena byla nejnižší, co jsme v dané době našli. Lokalita je vzdálenější od centra Benátek, ale využili jsme hotelový minibus - za příplatek.
