i though this was a great place for people on a budget. i stayed in on of the cabins and it was quite clean and sufficient. The staff were very friendly and the place just has a good feel about it. The bar is pretty cool, (watch out for the killer cocktails! ) it's convenient that they run a shuttle into the centre of venice, as its a little way out. You are right near a small airport, but you get used to the sound suprisingly quickly!! however despite these drawbacks it is still a pretty good place to stay :)

We stayed here for 3 nights in October in one of the cabins. This is really a great campsite that caters for all your basic needs. I recon the pool etc would be fantastic in summer. The restaurant served good food and we got to have a few drinks while watching SA beat Argentina in the world cup semi final at their pub, what more could you want?

This place was awesome. After traveling through Prague and staying in "The Tent" in Munich, this place was a haven for the 4 of us. The pool was clean, and the dance party later that first night was interesting. The only drawback was that you had to take a bus into Venice because it was too far to walk if I remember correctly. Don't let that fool you though - the price is right, and we had fun. We stayed in some sort of motor home-ish cabin thing which seemed brand new. Don't forget to drink some Fragolino when you're in Venice. Hopefully we can go back someday.

Stayed: June 2003

For the budget traveller, Camping Alba D'oro is a great option!

To start with, I should make it clear that Alba D'oro is actually situated on the outskirts of Venice, in a suburb of Venice called Venezia Mestre. To get into Venice itself you have to cross the big long bridge that leads into this gorgeous city.

Getting to and from Venice is easy when staying at Alba D'oro, they have an exclusive shuttle bus that runs at regular intervals throughout the day and night. When going into Venice, the shuttle bus picks you up at the front gates of the campsite, when heading back to the campsite, catch the shuttle from Piazzale Roma, where all the tour buses, and what felt like Venice's entire fleet of public buses, congregate! You can't miss it, just head towards the exhaust fumes! The trip to/from Venice took about 15-25 minutes, with factors such as traffic and the route taken by the different drivers causing the large variation in travel time. We found the earlier shuttles (eg 9am, 10am) took longer, as you got caught up in all the tour group traffic, whereas getting a later shuttle (around 11am-noon) wasn't as affected by this. Doesn't mean you miss out on valuable hours sightseeing, as there are shuttle buses going back to Venice leaving as late as 10pm.

Although Alba D'oro is on the outskirts of Venice, the shuttle drops you off in Piazzale Roma, you cross one bridge and you are in Venice proper. Before you know it, the frantic atmosphere of Piazzale Roma has been replaced by the enchanting tranquility of spectacular Venezia! So staying outside Venice is no huge inconvenience, and saves you money that is better spent on a gondola ride or similar!

The accommodation that my friend and I stayed in was a twin cabin with ensuite. They also allow 'normal' camping and have bigger rooms for groups and famliies. Although small, the cabin was comfortable and well equipped. The "bathroom" (little cupboard with shower, toilet and basin) was, yes, small, and got very sticky and humid, but it is budget accommodation, and I think most budget travellers, such as ourselves, were happy just to have our own bathroom!

Alba D'oro has several handy facilities - a restaurant, mini supermarket, bar, basketball/tennis/soccer/'any other sport you can create' area, Internet, laundry, camping facs (eg sinks), pool, surely I am missing some out!

The restaurant serves up a decent meal for a decent price, but you shouldn't expect michelin-star cuisine! There is an extensive pizza menu that we were keen to try but every night, for reasons still unknown, the wife in the husband-wife partnership running the restaurant, would hand us the menus and cheerfully say 'no pizza'! I hope they have sorted out the 'no pizza' thing by now!

The supermarket is stocked with essentials like bread, chocolate and alcohol, yet most things are a little pricey, and for us, staying in a cabin, there was no point buying perishables as we had no fridge to store them in. Still, handy to pick up a few bottles of beer/wine/vodka and some nibblies for pre-dinner drinks!

The "Gondola's" pub is an experience not to be missed. Run by the teenage son of the owners of the restaurant (who also run the supermarket), the bar is the hub of Alba D'oro's nightlife. Atmosphere largely depends on whether or not there is a Busabout or Top Deck tour group coming through - some nights there can be 5 people in there, others close to 100! The village is intended for young backpackers, which should give you some idea of the goings on at the bar!

Oh, one thing I should also mention - if you are a light sleeper make sure you bring earplugs/iPod etc. The campsite is right in the flight path of most planes coming and going from the airport! Some of the bigger planes actually shake the window panes, so loud is the noise! And its not particularly pleasant being woken at 6am, with a blinding hangover, to the sounds of a 747 taking off!

All in all, Alba D'oro is a great budget option. For a reasonable price, you can get a comfy bed, a decent feed and some good entertainment in the bar (and watching the Italian family who run it all having some spectacular barnies in the kitchen!). No, it isn't in the heart of Venice, but really, if you are a young traveller doing things cheaply, I can't see how you could afford to stay in Venice proper! Considering it cost us about 40 euro for the cabin, plus the 3.50 euro return ticket each day to get into and out of Venice -which only takes about 20 minutes - Alba D'oro is pretty good value.
