      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.

      Today we had a glorious day in the sun. We decided that there was not too much to go out sightseeing so we got up a bit later and then headed out. We went to the San macro bacilla which was an amazing church, the inside was tiled like a mosaic which each square was smaller than my finger and this covers the entire building. Must ...

      Day 37 Venice (also check-in to cruise) Today we have to check into the boat anytime after 1pm. The cruise ship doesn't leave port till tomorrow, so we have an overnight in Venice, which means we can store our packs for the morning, go exploring, then once. Have completed the cruise formalities, can explore again this evening. At breakfast we meet the other latecomers from last night, a Malaysian couple. She is a doctor in Singapore and is attending a conference in Europe on using Botox ...

      ... go up a hill on a "newly restored" cable car to the top of Srdj Hill. There we will get to take in the views before we head back down and go explore the “Old City”, there we get to try some cake and coffee in a Medieval Monastery. We then go on a walking tour of Dominican Church, a Palace, Cathedral, Palace, Fountain and numerous other things. We also get a bit of free time to look around, so ...

      ... did not have an issue with us. We sat down so that we could try the legendary bellini at the place where it was first invented. One look at the menu and wow! 15 euro for one bellini. I wasn’t super keen on it anymore but we still ordered two just so we could say we tried it. They were fantastically delicious and very refreshing, but so incredibly small for the amount we were paying. Luckily we did get two small fish cakes and a bowl of olives for munchies as we drank. That is one ...

      ... my extremely long day was not yet complete. After another delicious dinner, Roberto and I went back out into Padova and picked up a friend of Robertos who had recently moved to Padova from southern Italy to work as a nurse. Together we walked throughout Padova's quiet streets as they provided me with as much history as their brains could recall. When the wet weather got the best of us we headed into a local pub and shared a glass of Italian wine before heading home for some much needed sleep.
