2 nights in venice on honeymoon- Venice or Lido?


My hubby and I are doing a belated honeymoon. Both in our early 30s, looking to have a romantic 2 days/ nights in Venice at the beginning of August as the first part of our trip in Italy (then going to Tuscany, Rome, Positano). We'll be taking the train from Vienna to arrive in Venice, and then ultimately renting a car to drive to Tuscany our last morning in Venice. We currently have a reservation at Hotel Orion, but looking for suggestions if we should stay or change hotels. The Lido area looks very nice and serene. Would it be better to stay in Venice or the Lido area? We're looking to stay at around 100-110 euro per night. Like b and b's or hotels just as long as they have AC and breakfast. Want nice location, romantic. Help!

The Orion has quite good reviews, I would stay with it, as long as it has A/C needed in August,,

I think I would always choose Venice over the Lido, I think you need stay there to get the real feel of this lovely City,

The Orion in Spadaria, San Marco is very central, almost next to Piazza San Marco, so you will be able to experience Vencie to the full there. I would think this is much more romantic than staying over on the Lido.

Therer are some nearby eating places such as Cavatappi in Campo della Guerra (an enoteca) which have not yet been totally spoilt by too many tourists though in general this is not the bets area for eating whether romantic or otherwise. For that you need to walk somewhat further a way form Piazza San marco.

The cafes in this Campo many consider romantic, certainly lots of high-class ambience in the surroundings, but equally extremely high prices as well.
