Island travel

Get a vaporetto schedule for San Servolo--San Zaccharia. The boats run on time, and if you miss one, you will have to wait 30 mins. to an hour (evenings).

If the boat stops at San Servolo to let people off, but won't let you on--don't worry. It will go to San Lazzaro, a monastery, then return.


1st floor Palazzino 12, "living area": hot plates, refrigerators, sink. *Housekeeping does not clean this area--clean up your own messes promptly*

If you have technical problems accessing the Duke Libraries' databases recommended on this guide, try these solutions:

Connectivity in the VIU dorms

You will need an ethernet cable (your own, or buy one at Reception for €6). 

Also, buy a San Servolo card at Reception (€5) to get Internet access in the dorms plus discounts in Venice.
