      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.

      ... best for wedding photography, as we were treating to a bridal couple posing all over the square. Needless to say that amused me for a while. We continued to just wander around and as the crowds of tourists started to join us we headed into a park for a bit of a rest, or in my case and an hour or so snoozing in the sun. After lunch in a little cafe the rest of the afternoon was spent poking around the shops and just getting lost in the maze of streets and ...

      Florence and Venice are next on our list, as we hop back in the car and remind ourselves to drive on the correct side of the road. Our drive took us straight to the lovely town of Florence, through some spectacular countryside. Once there, we parked on the street in the city centre and battled the traffic ...

      It was a slow start today after the long walk last night. The breakfast at the hotel was pretty standard and good one too. Bread, Croissant, Cereal, Fruits, Juice and different flavors of Coffee were served.

      We decided to do another walk today starting from Rialto Bridge to other museums. The hotel person suggested visiting the market place near Rialto. This place had both meat, vegetable and fruit market all at ...

      ... places on the internet so I will keep my comments brief. It takes about 2 hours to stroll through at a fast clip. Paintings, Sculptures, Bronzes, coinage, Ivory Carvings, and a fairly decent, albeit small, armory. If accompanied by children or non-history buffs skip this tour, it will bore all but the most ardent people with an interest in art and history. Worth a look if you have 4-5 days in Venice but if you have limited in time choose the Doge’s Palace and Prison ...
