From Munich Hauptbanhof Station, it took 6 hrs to arrive in Sta Lucia train Station in Venice. Words can’t explain how it feels to be back in this beautiful city. In 2010, my family and I did a 3-week Italy trip (which I have yet to write about) and we stayed in Venice for 4 days. What my family and I did in those 4 days, Nik and I did in an entire day!
Looks old and abandoned, doesn’t it? But I think that’s what makes this building so beautiful. What attracted me most about this hotel is how it’s conveniently located right across the Sta. Lucia train station. After crossing one bridge (Ponte Scalzi), you’re there! Trust me when I say you wouldn’t want to stay at a place far from the station; you wouldn’t want to be carrying your heavy luggage up and down the thousands of bridges scattered all over the city. Also, its near a Vaparetto stop (waterbus). Although, it was quite pricey —110,00 Euro (6,000++ PHP) for 1 night and the room was small, no bathroom and AC was broke. As what i understand though, this is the normal price for hotels in Venice and we just wanted to stay in the island for a night so we really didn’t mind. Did I mention they serve breakfast too? Also a + factor!
