Current Hotel Recs - Venice, Perugia, Orvieto, Rome

Jump to last reply

We will be going to the above in mid-September.

Trying to keep hotels under 200E. Maybe more in one place and less in another.

Venice
We'll be in Venice for about 5 days (have been there twice before years ago so this is mostly for the day trips). A bit conflicted about location. Day trips will be by train so a location not too far from the train would be good. However, we'll be spending evenings in Venice so not too far from St Marks would also be good. How long does it take to get from St Mark area to the train either walking or by Vaporetto?

Perugia
A year or two ago Locanda Della Posta got some good recs. Does that still hold true? Other recs?

Orvieto
Only here one night. It's tempting to visit Orvieto as a day trip from Rome but I like the idea of spending an evening in a smaller town. Close to the upper hill train station would be a good idea.

Rome
We've been to Rome a couple of times but not in the past 12-13 years. Rome was selected mostly for its proximity to Orvieto and for the return flight to the U.S. My wife does have a short list of sights to see / re-see. We may cut this down to 1 1/2 days instead of 2 1/2 days depending upon how the other days play out. No day trips from Rome (unless we change and visit Orvieto as a day trip). Proximity to Spanish Steps, Fountain, Piazza Navonna, etc or reasonably close is good.

Thanks.
