I met Katy a few weeks back from WhereI’veBeen.com, a travel site with over 9 million travellers who share their travel experiences. The outcome of our convo’s led to a published guest post by me on the Do’s and Don’t’s of Dining in Venice. It has some insider tips and leads you to three of the most locally-known cicchetterie, Venetian tapas bars. You can enjoy a glass or two of wine over some Venetian finger foods. Hungry yet?

I’ve never been to Venice, but have been to Rome. We walked aoslmt everywhere and took the subway a few times. The subway is pretty easy to figure out if you have a good map of the stops. We had three two from guidebooks and one from our hotel between the three getting around was a piece of cake.Getting to and from Rome was a bit trickier. We trained in, and got quite turned around in the terminal. Luckily my husband knows a bit of Italian. I would definitely pick up a phrase book! You could even call ahead (not from the airport but now) to the hotel and see if they can give you directions from the airport to the hotel. Who knows they may have a shuttle?
What you’re looking at is Northern Europe/Scandinavia. I bcakpacked around there for a month and had NO issues with a language barrier. It’s really no exaggeration that almost everyone there speaks english (Except maybe Russia, but I’ve never been there so I don’t know).Just a gquestion, but why are you so interested in tours? If you buy a proper guidebook you’ll find out jsut as much information and be able to do everything on your own time. Plus, it might be cheaper. I’ve travelled around Europe both with tours and without them, and I think going without is far preferable!In Paris, absolutely use Public transportation. London and Paris have the easiest, nicest, most convenient forms of public transportation I’ve ever used. It’s wonderful.I lived in Londn, so I’ve no idea wher to recommend you stay (other than you might want to make sure it’s in either zone 1 or 2, because that’s where most of the atttractions are and it’s WAAAAY cheaper to just travel within those two zones than to add on any of the other 5 or so). .Paris St. Christopher’s Inn. I’ve stayed there twice, it’s wonderful. And they do have private rooms.Venice I stayed at Ca’ Danieli, it’s a very nice (but cheap-ish) hotel just outside Venice, easily accessible by bus. I HIGHLY recommend it. the room they give you is a lot like an apartment with a kitchen, dining room, and whatnot. The owner is very very sweet, but be forwarned that she doesn’t speak English. It’s hard to not like her anyway though. :)Also, just so you know, trains in Italy are incredibly good. They are easy to use and get around with. I don’t speak Italian and I had to travel around on them by myself a lot, and I had such an easy/good time. It was great.
Hi there, just met you virtually while prnpeipg for a holiday to Abruzzo (just outside Atessa) we start on Sunday. Thanks for introducing me to some aspects of life in the area, which I feel will be a wonderful break from English life for us. So there’ll be a bit more English spoken in Abruzzo during the next couple of weeks!I’m sorry to have read of your recent loss been there too and I have also had the midlife mother experience, having my 3 when I was 32, 36 and 41. Some of us do need to kiss a lot of frogs before we meet our handsome price ..Best wishes to you, my dear.Mary Reply:July 31st, 2010 at 2:26 pmThanks Sue. It’s too bad you’re not passing by my neck of the woods, we could get together.
not sure exactly what your budegt is, but when I was in London with my mum we stayed at the Luna Simone hotel (lunasimonehotel.com/). It’s not too pricey and has a nice atmosphere. It’s in Victoria and quite a good location (5-10 min walk to the tube) with restaurants and pubs around as well.
Everybody should have the opportunity to see Venice at least once.
