My daughter are planning to visit Venice as a city break during the easter holidays. Its somewhere I've always wanted to go, and as we are only going to be there for a few days want to make the most of it.
Can any of you please recommend a reasonably priced hote that we can use as a base for exploring?
Any good places to eat - again reasonabley priced.
And also places we really should not miss?
Easter hols, Venice and reasonably priced do not mix! Venice can be called nothing but expensive in the lower season, during peak times the prices skyrocket.
I would suggest using TPs Accomodation search.
As for food - check out the supermarkets (self-made sandwiches can be a life saver) and some of the smaller restaurants on the islands, say Burano, the Lido or Murano. The further away from St Marcus Square the better and cheaper it gets.
