Venice area recommendation

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone,

We are going to be in Venice for three nights in June. I have found several good apartments in different neighborhoods but having a hard time deciding what's the ideal location for our purpose.

I am trying to pick a place based on convenience (from airport, to train station, attractions), local/authentic charm and budget.

To give some context:

- we will be landing in venice at 9am after a long flight from US. we have two kids ages 9 and 5. I "think" will have 1 large and two medium sized bags.

- we will be taking a train on the forth day to car rental place in florence. ideally, we will start around 1pm.

Originally I was planning to stay in San Marco but there are several threads recommending Dorsoduro, Cannaregio or Castello instead. I have been relying heavily on google maps to understand how much we will have to rely on walking or public transportation but it's not helping me reach a conclusion.

Is there a map or site that makes it easier to understand public transportation options for Venice? Which area would you recommend for us?

thanks,
m
