    We chose this B&B because of its proximity to the Fondamenta Nuove dock. We had planned to arrive in Venice on the day of the Regatta Storica, and knew from past experience that the Grand Canal would be inaccessible. The Alilaguna ferry from the airport stops at Fondamenta Nuove. The B&B is located on a side street, just a short walk from the dock. Also, vaporetti to the islands of San Michele, Murano & Burano run frequently. We were also able to catch a vaporetto to the train station when we departed.

    Anna & Mario are very pleasant hosts... helpful when needed, otherwise unobtrusive. The room that they let is quite comfortable and fairly quiet, except for the sound of the vaporetti coming in & out. But that's just part of the charm of Venice. The bathroom is nice, with a large shower & plenty of hot water. Breakfast is served continental style, with juice, coffee, fruit, yogurt, and plenty of rolls & pastries.

    The walk to Piazza San Marco is a little tricky, but after the first day, we had no problem... about a 20-minute walk. And, if you don't feel like walking, you can always catch a vaporetto.

    The only problem we had with this place was that a €100 deposit was required, and it had to be sent by wire transfer. Our bank provided the service for a $30 foreign transaction fee, but Mario's bank charged a fee also, which was subtracted from the amount of our deposit. We weren't too happy about this, but Mario agreed to eat the fee on his end, so all was good. Perhaps this is only a problem with US banks, but it was an added difficulty.

    Our overall impression, however, was positive. We had a very pleasant stay, and would highly recommend the B&B Alle Fondamente Nuove.

    Three Ladies in Venice

    ... first 2 days of wonderful weather....quite cool, but just fine for walking the many miles we do everyday. Last night and today we had torrential rains and many of the streets and sidewalks flooded. We went to the store to buy bottled water and on the way back, had to slosh through 6 inches of water to get home.

    The most amazing thing about Venice is that it is a complex maze of tiny streets and waterways. While you know that before you ...

    ... and Italian hospitality. The cool and quiet of her rooms, gently
    intruded on by the squeak of a washing line, strung from window to window,
    being loaded with the daily wash. On the hour bells from a nearby church, noisy
    neighbours through the open windows, Rosemary’s soprano practicing for her next
    performance.

    Venice of course is truly unique, a passage back in time.
    It’s loved to death, packed with tourists. They plough through like ...

    ... and canals that run throughout the city. We looked into a Gondola ride..but it was still extremely expensive! After walking around for a while we decided to sit down at a cafe and share a litre of wine. Red wine is so much better when it is cold! If you haven't tried this you should. We had a great day wandering the streets of Venice!

    ... about 9:30 pm. From Treviso airport (an hour into the mainland from venice) we had to take a shuttle bus that dropped us off at the water bus port. When we got to the port we saw a sign that said that the water busses were on strike that day and they couldn't guaruntee regular services...perfect. We hopped on the first bus that came and rode it to the Rialto Bridge stop. We realized that I had printed out directions from a stop that didn't get used on the night bus, so ...

    ... br> It was so hot and after hours and hours of walking it was great to stop and intervals and dip our feet into the cool canal water.

    Venice is also famous for its Venetian glass which is so colourful and flamboyant, though infamously expensive. There are some odd 400 bridges in Venice and a plethora of impossibly narrow laneways, one we went down was as wide as our shoulders.
    There are three main bridges that cross the Grand Canal, the greatest being the ...
