    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.

    Venice for the Day

    ... right area!! I had to be back for the glass blowing demonstration with my group so I didn't go far. So far, all I've bought is water; it’s ridiculously humid here and I’m losing water almost faster than I can replenish it!

    We saw a very short glass blowing demonstration and a longer sales pitch (!) at a Murano glass factory. The work is beautiful but too expensive for me (over 100 euro for a single stemmed glass). After that, I went with Sharon and Bob to ...

    ... with a Canadian. Haha. Think the real one was a bit better. ;) we headed back to my room and Gemma was with us; very very drunk. The bar man had given her a few too many free shots i think... Teleah got up out of bed to help me and we got her into the bathroom. A few people then joined us. So Grant was laying in my bed, Michael was laying in Gemma's bed, Gemma was vomiting in the sink (we tried to get her to do it in the toilet but she was "too comfortable" by ...

    Day 9

    ... 8211; and back in the motorboat to head back to the coach. Exhausted, we both bided our time till our dinner at 7.45pm – Michael sorted his computer, photos and other electrical stuff he was doing, while I had a quick bath to try and warm up. Dinner was down in the restaurant tonight, and we both agreed it wasn’t the best one we have so far. We were both too tired to really enjoy it, so back up to our room for what will hopefully be a better night ...

    ... over canals and a stop for supper at an ourdoor bistro on a square by a canal. Gellatos for dessert of course. Relaxing evening at the hotel on our beautiful terrace. Gorgeous sunset, not a cloud in the sky. Venice at night is truly magical. The only sounds are the birds, the footsteps of people wandering by and an occasional serenading ...

    ... Albania clearly visible across the water. Time for a new country, so we visited Split in Croatia. The overnight trip was quite rough and we wondered whether we would be able to tender off the ship here, however we awoke to a beautiful blue sky and calm water. This place has loads of history and Diocletian’s palace dating back to the 4th century which is still intact with amazing brick and stonework. What’s ...
