      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.

      ... of nice glasswares afterwards. I chatted to one of the guys that worked there for a while, very nice sexy Venetian man, Giacomo. ;) After the glass demonstration we had free time for a while. We went and got lunch at one of the pizza places the guide had recommended. The pizza was really good. :) after lunch we went on the search for Venetian masks as we had a masquerade party that night at the campsite! I tried on lots of different ones but went back to the first ...

      ... in a while in Rialto. It's a overcast day with no sun and a bit of drizzle. We have a little look then go on the famous gondola ride, where Mario chatted to us about the history of certain places. Peter sang Amore to which Mario laughed and said no no only in the movies. We all loved the gondola ride but were happy to get off as the wind was freezing on the water. On to Piazza di San Marco where we had a look ...

      ... waited for our number to be called and before we knew it we were in line to go through security. NCL and Venice port really are organized and we were on board by 13h00. We were greeted at the top of the gang way by a band playing music and staff who swiped our cards to check us on board. Once on board we ordered our wine for the week and got our tickets and then headed to the buffet. We managed to find a table for lunch at ...

Let me say first that as you might expect the food is exceptional, coming straight from my resident wine somolier ...

      ... was incredible. Everyone was meeting everyone and the drinks were flowing. Turned out to be a great night. The rest of the week was pretty much a party since we didn't have too many classes or much to do. Wednesday was Hayden's favorite night. He learned to fly and accomplished his childhood dream of becoming Spiderman.....pretty sure he still thinks he is (please contact my agent for full story). We continued to tear ...
