Burton Dane Travels

We're traveling through Europe and parts nearby for a year. We'll be posting our pix and adventures here.

We left Roma and Firenze for the third city on Italy’s tourist route. We found it easy to camp on the mainland the first night, then take a vaporetto over to the island for 2 nights there.

It’s just like in the pictures!

We got chased out by horizontal snow flurries in Murano. Ben's face shows how much he liked it.

    Hey any recommendation on where to stay in Rome and Venice? I'll be in Europe from June 1st to the 22nd. Any suggestions??

    Hi Kelli,

    We stayed at the Hotel Perugia near the Colosseum in Rome. It was spartan, friendly and quiet. It's in a neighborhood inside a triangle of busy streets on two sides and the Colosseum on the third. There's a subway stop nearby and it's easy to walk the Roman Forum at night (you'll want to do that). Not special, just convenient.

    Can't really recommend where we stayed in Venice. It wasn't very friendly.
