B & B Livia Oliva
Reviewed May 11, 2011

Located on the island of Lido just a few mins by vaporetto from Venice St Marco square and about 30 mins from train station.

Quiet island to return to after the walking around with the busy tourist crowds on Venice all day.

Livia was very sweet and accommodating. We were served breakfast on her deck every morning, with homemade jams. Delicious!

Room had twin bed, double bed, shower, sink. Shared bathroom in small common area.

Absolutely perfect.





Lucia is totally sweet and accommodating. She gave us a delicious breakfast out on her deck each morning, com

A great B&B, with a friendly and warm proprietor. Our room was spacious, with the use of a fridge and T&C facilities. The Guest House is situated in close walking vicinity to and from the water bus, close to a sandy beach and close to some very reasonable restaurants in Lido. Breakfast is quaint - served by Livia and she offers the use of the kitchenette for other times of the day - really helpful. Livia says that her english isn't very good, however alot better than our Italian!! A great place for a break and we would definitely stay with Livia again when visiting Venice. Ideal time to stay in Venice for the Carnival - amazing!!

We booked this B&B a little unsure of where it actually was located. We were pleasently surprised as it was only a 10 minute ride from central Venice then a 5-10 minute walk. We found clean rooms with plenty of space. Shared bathroom was always free and also clean.
Oliva was the ideal host. Breakfast on the terrace was excellent and filling so we ended up having a late lunch each day. Oliva let's you use her kitchen and fridge so you could buy some bits from the supermarket and then eat or drink on the terrace after a long day of walking!
Lido is a great way to get away from the crowds whilst still enjoying the experiance of Venice!

Brilliant Location just 3-4 minutes walk from the boat station on the Lido. The room we booked had an en-suite bathroom with shower, the bedroom was very large, nicely furnished. Very homely and clean. Breakfast was served on the owners balcony / terrace which was varied and filling. The owner was really friendly and let us keep our belongings on the last day in her apartment.

We booked this guesthouse through "other accomodations" on hostelz.com. It is a little out of the way - about 10 mins walk from the main Lido vaparetto station, but Livia is very sweet. There are just a few rooms, and they in her apartment (her home), but very well kept. The bathroom is shared, but was always available and very clean. Breakfast on the terrace was quite filling and lovely. A nice base for exploring Venice, without the confusion and crowds of other places. And the price was amazingly good for a private, clean place to stay. We heard lots of horror stories of roaches and rats and squalor and mosquitos coming through windows w/o screens in Venice budget lodging, and didn't have to contend with any of these things - and still for a great price. Go stay with Livia, she'll welcome you like family.
