The location was fantastic, the room was fantastic, but what made this place extra special is Matthia. He is such a wonderful host, and provides you with any and all information about the city you could ever want. 5 stars is not enough, in my opinion.

By the way, if you are trying to figure out where we have been when, give it up! Our blog is living the Dolce Vita and is delayed, Italian style.

We spent almost 2 hours making our way up to San Marco, as we admired all of the beautiful shops selling their Italian/Venice (or Chinese) made traditional goods.

After a couple more hours of getting lost we decided to retreat to the hotel, grab a jumper and meet back up for dinner. We found a great family owned restaurant off the main drag ...
... the receptionists. But first we had a few quiet red wines at a little jazzy wine bar in one of the side streets, only big enough for a few bar stools inside and a couple of tables outside. We had two Sicily shirazs which were quite nice. Not as bold as ours at home and a touch fruitier. Each time we ordered the bar man gave us a bowl of crisps to munch on. We had dinner at a seafood restaurant close to the main shopping precinct and the wine ...
... so much control over their boats. The gondolas seem to be everywhere getting in the way but no one seems to get too upset.
On Thursday we caught a water-bus into San Marco along with every other tourist in Venice, only spent about 10 minutes there and were so overwhelmed we walked out into the suburbs. It was nice and shaded, and a lot less people – we were so relaxed just walking through the streets and alleys, not really knowing where we were going ...
