We knew Venice would be expensive, but were unprepared for just how much money we would need for 3 days! Wine is around $AU10 a glass and a basic main course is around $AU30 - however how often are you there, so suck it up. The first hit was the water taxi from the airport to the hotel - Hotel Torino has a small landing station almost outside, very convenient, for $110EUROS one way. Take the same water taxi from the hotel to the cruise terminal and you're up for another $90EUROS.... that's around $AU300 for transfers! The hotel is in a good position, near a canal and a short walk to St Mark's Square. The room we were given was in the annex (heaven knows how early you have to book to get into the main building) and very small, leading on to a shared terrace with no view. The second room was the same size but had a 4-poster bed (nice idea if one of the curtains hadn't fallen down frequently.) Very small ensuite. Clean, basic continental breakfast in the main building. Helpful bellhop - airconditioning did not work until he fiddled with it, thank God, as temp was over 100degrees the whole 3 days we were there. Hoping to win the lottery so I can stay somewhere else next time - you really need cash in this city!
