I am in the process of eliminating available lodging in Venice, but not sure which part of the city is best for our family of 5 (3 teen boys).
We are arriving (3pm) and departing (10am) by train. I am trying to keep us within a decent budget, so I want to be mindful of the water transportation costs moving through the city, eating in and out, as well as expenses for sight seeing.
If we view Venice as a rectangle, divided into unequal 4 parts: (excuse the misuse of proper division & proper names, no disrespect intended)
A) Cannaregio Region (upper West side)
B) Area West & South of Canal Grande
C) Upper North Venezia Region
D) South of Castello Region (One of them is near Giardini della Biennale)
Which area would you recommended? Why?
Thanks for your advice! Truly appreciated! As Italy is the only RS book I don't have on hand for reference. :/
