Off to the Doge's Palace for the Secret Itinerary tour (highly recommend). Visited the offices where all of the secret government documents were kept. Also the cells where Casanova was imprisoned. After the tour we continued our visit of the palace. We toured the doge's apartments, & crossed the Bridge of Sighs to the prison. We ate lunch in …

Yay, the strike is over! Today we are off to the islands of San Michele, Murano & Burano. Our B&B is very convenient to the #41 vaporetto stop. As a matter of fact, San Michele is directly across from us, so it's only a five-minute ride. San Michele is Venice’s cemetery. There are a few famous folks buried there, like Igor Stravinsky …

Our plan for today was to take a vaporetto cruise down the Grand Canal. We had another Rick Steves podcast tour to listen to which starts at the train station and ends at the San Zaccaria stop. However, as we were leaving, Mario suggested that we might like to visit a nearby church, the Madonna dell'Orto, and also the Jewish Ghetto. Since these …

Our hosts provided us with a delicious continental breakfast of juice, excellent coffee (made in a French press, but only enough for one cup each), pastries & yogurt. We always like to load up in the morning, because we know we'll be on the go for hours. After breakfast we set off in the rain for the Frari Church and the Scuola San Rocco. John …

Day 1 - Arrival in Venice

We landed in Dublin in the early a.m., had an excellent cup of cafe americano & a pastry at a cafe in the terminal; then, after a two-hour layover, we were back in the air and on our way to Venice. This time we were seated on the wrong side of the plane, so we were unable to get the fabulous aerial shots of Venice on the approach to Marco Polo …

    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.
