Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.

  • Another church that we unfortunately did not see the inside of. The outside is in fact glorious. Catching the light of the sun and clearly showing the lines of the ornamentation adorning the facade.  more »

  • Marvellous facade! Some works of art worth seeing on the inside. The church is often closed.
  • I need to start by sharing a story about my son's skin allergies!!! I was concerned coz of the Europe Summers are hot....and his allergy coming back...he experiences sharp stabbing burning pains, on his back....that prevented him from going outside on really hot days. Now in saying that....we visited San Stae Church.....in Venice back in 2013, it was just breathe taking!! I felt a presents like nothing other, just felt inner peace...as we walked around the church....my son wanted to like up some candles...and we did. We left shortly after and I kid you not....we experienced a miracle...no other way to call it....my son doesn't have the skin allergy anymore!! Amen :)
  • Beautiful church right by the water!
  • First of all - I'm completely unreligious man. But... in this church I've got some feeling... like someone is watching on me... someone from outside this world. It was scary and miraculous experience in the same time.
  • Very nice
