I will be in Venice (provided I find a train and accommodation :) from Oct 28 to Nov 2 with my boyfriend.
We are getting old... and he has a serious health concern (cancer related).
Also, we are doing our homework, and it seems most hotels are already fully booked... Normal?
I would have a few questions:
- how come ALL hotels are more expensive at that time of the year than in summer???
- we have a tight budget, we can consider an inexpensive hotel, a B&B, a convent etc... His main request (he knows Venice very well) is to be very close to a water taxi stop (it seems a vaporetto won't give us enough time to carry all our luggage in and out at the stop). We are leaving for a year, so we are loaded. Venice is just a stop-over.
- he also wants to be the closest possible to San Marco (and he can't easily walk).
Could you please give us advice, suggestions? I would be very grateful.
Thank you very much
