I’m not one to do this, but against my better judgment, I took Rick Steves’ recommendation and booked a room at Hotel Flora.
I arrived-after a long search to find the hotel which is located down a narrow dead-end kind of street-in the morning, and...More

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

Take the train from Paris to Venezia Santa Lucia. There are three ways to get to Hotel Flora from the train station. Walking is about 35-40 minutes, but if you have heavy bags, there are many bridges to cross and it will be difficult. Private Water Taxi - but it is expensive. The easiest and least expensive way to get to the hotel, if you have heavy bags, is to take the Vaporetto. Walk out of Stazione S. Lucia, and you will see Vaporetto stations on the canal. Buy a ticket at the kiosks and take the Number 1 to the Giglio stop. Hotel Flora is a 5 minute walk from the Giglio stop - over one small bridge. The Number 1 Vaporetto is usually crowded, as it is the most popular Vaporetto Line, but you get views of all of the palaces on the Grand Canal and it is beautiful! Stand by the doors on the edge of the boat for the best views!
Tome el tren de París a Venezia Santa Lucia. Hay tres maneras de llegar al Hotel Flora desde la estación de tren. Caminar es de aproximadamente 35-40 minutos, pero si tienes bolsas pesadas, hay muchos puentes que cruzar y será difícil. Taxi de agua privado, pero es caro. La forma más fácil y menos costosa de llegar al hotel, si tiene bolsas pesadas, es tomar el Vaporetto. Salga de Stazione S. Lucia y verá estaciones de Vaporetto en el canal. Compre un boleto en los kioscos y tome el número 1 hasta la parada Giglio. El Hotel Flora se encuentra a 5 minutos a pie de la parada de Giglio, más de un pequeño puente. El vaporetto número 1 suele estar abarrotado, ya que es la línea de vaporetto más popular, pero se obtienen vistas de todos los palacios del Gran Canal y es hermoso. ¡Ponte junto a las puertas en el borde del bote para obtener las mejores vistas!
