Slide1Accommodations in Venice:

I spent some time going around to different establishments to get a variety of price ranges in Dorsoduro, which is the specific area within Venice of the workshop.  Dorsoduro is a big section of Venice when you are on foot. Palazzo Minotto is near Piazzale Roma. There is a distinction between high season and low season.  The workshop is considered to be low season.  Below is a listing of accommodations near by, this is NOT a recommendation other than they are near the workshop site and they seemed like a place where I might stay.

These prices are from 2015, but it gives you some idea of the range of prices, you will need to contact them for their current prices. I would like your stay in Venice to be as nice as the workshop.
