While getting around was bit easy for me, finding a place to stay was something else. All of the hostels were booked when I looked it up in Budapest so I just decided to show up. After taking the night train from Budapest, I arrived at 7 am. Upon arrival, I called every hostel listed but didn't have much luck again which meant I had to resort to hotels
For $150, I expected at least Best Western status, but this was worse than the sticky-6 back home. I even had to share the bathroom with four other rooms. Well, I guess that's Venice for you. Nonetheless, I did enjoy finally getting to sleep alone in a quiet setting. Even if I wanted to stay another night, I couldn't afford it, so I decided to head down to Florence, where Renaissance all started.
