…like Youth Hostel


As in other well-known cities, the hotels in Venice are very expensive and quickly booked. For young people on a smaller budget, staying in a hotel in Venice seems almost impossible. However, some youth hostels are usually centrally located and offer cheaper rooms. A perfect place to make new friends and get to know Venice in a group. A special one of its kind is the We_Crociferi, which is working as a youth hostel only during the semester break.




…like Yacht

Venice, the city in the lagoon, has many benefits concerning water. Opposite the Grand Canal and St. Mark’s Square, where the gondolas are landing, lies the marina. On the island of Sant’Elena the picturesque scenery with small boats can be observed. Larger yachts can be seen at the Marina Jesolo, about 16km northeast of Venice.
