My return to Italy

After my Croation adventure I cross back into Italy by ferry
and into Venice which brings up this question
As I've only arrived by train and found a bed close by station
I don't know where ferries arrive and accommodation
available in that area
Can any one advise a hostel/budget price and is it a good area
Should I get closer to station Any help or advise pls

What ferry?

There are quite a few convents in Venice (some cheap and some more expensive resembling a hotel). Do you mind a curfew?

A curfew --not at all and actualy love the
experience of monasteries which I intend
to try in Sicily early

>>>I have a web site with Italian monasteries<<<

If you are talking about monasterystays website, they are a reseller and mark up prices (10-15€ per night for a single). Book directly with the convent or monastery.

Here's an old thread about convents in Venice.
