Art, bridges and carnivals: the ABC of Venice. Or should that be alleys, basilicas and colonnades? Venice is one of the most distinctive and attraction-packed cities in Europe, not to mention one of the most outrageously beautiful. This floating metropolis, carved up by canals and stitched back together by bridges, somehow manages to pack an amazing range of hostels into its small city centre. Whether you’re looking for a cheap hostel, a group-friendly hostel, or a downtown hostel where you can connect with fellow backpackers, Venice has it. But you don’t want to hear about hostels, do you? Outside that dorm are enough jaw-dropping architecture, lip-smacking cuisine and fun-filled festivals to last a lifetime. You’ll get lost more than once, but hey – isn’t that what it’s all about?

Get away from the tourists: You needn't travel far from the tourist centre to see a dramatic drop in prices (and rise in quality). Choose pizza, chicheti and house wine in the suburbs and you'll save a small fortune.
Buy a Chorus Pass: If you plan to visit a number of churches during your stay in Venice, consider a Chorus Pass. €12 gets you access to 18 of the city's churches. Single entry is usually €3. www.chorusvenezia.org
The best is free: The greatest joy in Venice is walking aimlessly, getting lost among the city's cobbled streets, criss-crossing canals and quaint bridges. And doing that doesn't cost you a penny.
The main points of entry are Venice Marco Polo (served by British Airways, Easyjet, and Lufthansa) and Treviso Airport (home to Ryanair and Wizz Air). To get to the city centre hostels from Venice Marco Polo, you can take the ATVO Venezia Express bus, which runs to Piazzale Roma in around 20 minutes, costing €6. The ACTV-run Aerobus (line 5) is another option, but costs €8. Alilaguna water buses also serve San Marco (lines A, B and R). From Treviso Airport, use bus services operated by Barzi and ATVO.
Venice Santa Lucia train station offers easy access to domestic and international train networks (often via Mestre). Rome and Milan are just a few hours away, while overnight trains can take train passengers as far afield as Munich, Paris, Vienna, Budapest and Moscow.
Venice's main bus station is in Piazzale Roma, though this almost exclusively serves the airports. Inter-city and international travel is easiest by train from the nearby Santa Lucia station.
Venice is the world's only pedestrianised city, and one of its greatest pleasures is walking the streets. But if you want to get around quicker, try the vaporetti (water buses). Single fares are expensive (typically €7) but you can buy multiple journey tickets covering time periods from 12 hours (€18) to seven days (€60). Water taxis are also available to flag down.
