    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.

    ... score us any. So we headed out to buy a few groceries and get gelatos. Much to Aiden's dismay, we told him he could not swim in the canals.

    Our one full day in Venice saw us visiting the Doge's Palace. We took a vaporetto, which is a local bus boat to the grand square where the palace is. Throngs of people everywhere! Riding in gondolas, taking pictures, clogging up bridges. We went directly ...

    ... around exploring this amazing place. We went for gondola rides this afternoon. There was 6 of us and we finished 3 bottles of champagne in 35 minute ride! Riding around in the canals in a gondola makes you feel like your in a movie. I want to move to Italy. It is the most amazing place in the world. Today has been the most amazing day of my life. I have met such amazing people and seen so many amazing things. I can't wait for so many more days like ...

    ... the key to a seamless and successful start to our big trip! With valuable insider knowledge the crazy hustle on bustle of the Piazza San Marco was initially avoided and instead was replaced with seafood antipasto at the locally frequented Ala Planca on the Guidecca canal front at the mouth of the Canal Grande overlooking Venice itself! Followed by a short trip up the San Giorgio Maggiore Palladios church and bell tower for panoramic views ...in less than ...

    ... impressed with himself at having secured a ride on a water taxi for us, and continually referred to them as James Bond Taxis, followed by this silly little noise he made whenever he thought he was smart...it gave Stuie and I a giggle every time he did it, and we'd put our heads together and do a very quiet mimic... we'll get sprung one of these days, but for now, it's our own private amusement.

    well Venice was exactly like what you would expect - lots of water everywhere ... and the gondalas and water taxis and ferries cruising up and down the canals .. though hate to be there in the winter with the water rising higher and boy the smell would have definitely got me then.. but at the moment it is really very cute and easy to get around and great just enjoying the buz of ...
