Venice: the Floating City
Venice, the floating city in northeastern Italy, is a place like no other. Known for its interesting network of canals and stunning architecture, Venice has been a popular destination for centuries. It was built on 118 small islands and is connected by over 400 bridges. Such a unique city in both design and location!
The canals of Venice are the city’s most famous feature and the main means of transportation. Gondolas, the traditional Venetian boats, are a popular way to explore the city and its secrets while offering a one-of-a-kind perspective of the city and its overall charm. 🛶
Where to stay in Venice?
Is Venice getting dusty on your bucket list? Time to change that.
Our newest Italian place to stay, MEININGER Venezia Mestre, is the perfect accommodation for all of you who want to live their Venetian dream while staying on a budget.
Mestre is on the mainland, meaning that many great and affordable entertainment, food and shopping options are next door to our hotel. Check out Piazza Ferretto, Mestre’s town square, which is just 20 minutes from the hotel and enjoy its Medieval architecture. Or take a stroll on the pedestrianized streets offering you calmer vibes than central Venice lined with stylish alfresco coffee shops and trattorie.
At the same time, feel relaxed because direct and frequent connections can take you to central Venice by bus and train anytime you want, even at night. Discovering Venice and Mestre becomes a piece of cake once you make our hotel your starting point. 🎭
