    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.

    ... can see everything the chef prepares. As Louisa said, “Nothing to hide.” It was wonderful but after such a long day, we were both ready to get back to the ship. This time, the correct vaparetto stop, which was very close to the restaurant and the first water bus ride at night. My nighttime photos didn’t turn out but everything looked glittery with the lights reflecting in the water. A long walk back to the ship – my feet ...

    ... It's a cute, old city that looks suspiciously like diagon alley. I'd tell you about the stores I went in to, but that would give a few surprises away, family ;). One place I did go into though was a traditional German/Austrian clothing store (do they dress differently? It looks the same to me). The dresses were gorgeous... And expensive. Around 200 euros. But I tried one on, and I'm sorry to say that ...

    Today, we had to change hotels. We could only book two nights in Hotel Piave and had to change to Hotel Regit for this last night. We checked out and brought our bags to the new hotel in Mestre, then got the train to Venice (11 AM).



    Today, was our buying and final exploring day. Dilyara bought an O-Bag and some souvenirs from the shops we had marked on the map from the previous days. We then walked more on the ...

    ... are also buried here, and there is a large section for military dead as well. I would like to post some photos for you all to see, but taking photos inside the cemetery gates was forbidden. We thought it was poor taste to ignore the sign, so if you want to see what it was like, go to Venice.

    By and by another water taxi showed up to take us to Murano. The water taxis are interesting machines; they look a bit like an elongated, taller version of a canal boat. They protest loudly ...

    ... to the 4th floor which had the 2nd full bathroom (with bathtub), a kitchen, dining room and little family room that we turned into the computer room. Then there was a tiny spiral glass staircase leading to the 5th floor where there was another sitting room, the laundry room and the access to the roof level balcony. The huge balcony had two tables, 8 chairs and a little water sink (more about that in our next days blog). The view ...
