imageWhen you're visiting Venice, the best place to stay is in the city's historic center: You won't waste time on commuting, you'll have a place to rest when you're tired of sightseeing, and you'll be able to enjoy Venice in the early morning or late in the evening when the daytrippers have gone home.

Still, you may have good reasons for preferring the city of Venice's mainland districts of Mestre and Marghera:
