Good deal, shame there's no northern airports I.e Manchester or Liverpool though!

I wonder how nice the hotels are, I can;t find them listed there.

Genuine LOL!

4* rated Excel Roma. & the lavish Apogia Sirio

As above - Seems like a great deal but not for us northern monkeys

What you tend to find with these is the hotels are a little further out from the centre

The £149 price is only for departures early June. Prices are somewhat higher for other dates and reach £279 during May half term.

Look on tripadviser for reviews of hotels most agree not 4* more like 3 and average reviews with the Roma being about half a hour away from Rome which some like the quietness others not so.
For the money however just a shade under £300 per couple a nice cheap break but just be aware no cancel or refund once booked but is ATOL protected and get travel insurance after booking.

Sorry voted cold, this deal have been already posted a while back and like before I can tell you that this is not what it seems... I can only speak for the Venice part because I lived there for over ten years, you are not sleeping in Venice, you are in a hotel in Mestre close to the dual carreageway/motorway, two days based in Venice you might get a chance to enjoy Venice, but sleeping out of Venice not a chance! Not to mention the train journey to Rome, I'm pretty sure they will not offer you the fast "Italo Trains" or the various "freccia" gold/silver ... very luckly is going to be a stop over every city to Rome..... what about the flight there? Treviso or Venice... Venice arport is less 30 mins by bus, Treviso a lot more it all take time off your break that is already very little.....

Agree with: Treviso is MILES away and a ball-ache of a bus trip into a very unwelcoming bus station in Mestre.

Disagree with: Actually, despite being a ways out of "Venice", Mestre is ok if you know where you're going, there's some cool little restaurants & bars (Al Vapore, where I know some people, and their mate's place (which I forget the name of) just down the road, to name two). Also, Mestre is a pretty short ride on the bus to Venice main, and you get a really good view over the lagoon which actually enhances the experience, in my view.

if you know the area, you could stay in Mestre for your nights(it is I would say about 10/15mins walk from the train station) but for people that never seen Venice and the little isles around the lagoon, you do need to stay in Venice to enjoy the town not only during the daytime but on evenings and nights as well, and I would not recommend Mestre bus station/train station during nights.... about the hotel, I don't think you can have a nice view of the lagoon.... Unfortunately two days are just not enogh because all the time that you waste for connections and transports...

Having looked into this, the hotels look incredibly average, certainly not 4* but possibly 'good' for the money. They are miles away though and if you're only going to have a few days there, do you really want to spend it travelling?

cold from me

Wouldn't touch this with a bargepole! Did this and had our camera stolen by a very slick group of Italians on the way to Rome from the airport. Don't use public transport there! The hotels they give you aren't the best.

so you did touch it with your bargepole!

No good for us Scots

£149 is only for the 1st week of Jun. Otherwise the price is higher.

That's a great deal, as we were tempted by the Travelzoo offer, which was an extra £90pp.
Would people say it's worth paying the difference and taking advantage of the Travelzoo offer or is this sufficient?
