    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.

    Venice, Glass and Lace

    ... and as we travel along more and more people get on until we think the boat will burst. Murano is a popular destination. After lots of stops and lots of people getting on and off we arrive at Murano and disembark. Immediately there are hawkers urging us to their glass factory and show room further around the shoreline. Instead of heading off with the crowd we enter the glass factory that is right in front of us. They have some lovely glass and prices to match. We go over ...

    ... soaked up the atmosphere. And I lost count of how many holiday snapshots we'll appear in, as people were constantly stopping at the door to take photos of the interior of one of the most famous cafes in the world. It's also the second oldest in continuous operation, after Procope in Paris.

    A little more window shopping, and we made our way around to the S. Marco vaporetto stop. Only a short wait until we boarded a crowded boat, which we left again at the Ca'Rezzonico stop. ...

    ... each one way! If you don't pay in Venice you don't go because water is the only way to really get around. There was this American couple in front of us with (I kid you not) 6 suitcases and carry bags. They had pushed a trolley all the way from the airport (about a 10 minute walk) to the ferry terminal. As they went to push the trolley onto the ferry ramp the front wheels got stuck and 4 of the suitcases tumbled onto the ramp. They picked them all up, he was bleeding from an injury, ...
