... assist. The train always seems to arrive though.
I love Venice and Dianne & the kids appreciated their first view as we wandered down from the station. Once again a long line was waiting for vaporetto tickets (water taxis) and only two windows were open. Seems to be a pattern. Caught the vaporetto to San Alvise, awkward with luggage, and then met our contact Luca at the dock. He led us to the apartment we had booked - he ...
... all talking and enjoying life? Shops that sell cheeses and ham only. A bar so small you have to stand in the piazza to eat your pizza slice and drink your beer. Cafes with white linen cloths that sell sweets and pastries with coffee and provided the perfect place to rest your aching back and watch the piazza as you recover your strength for the next scenic feast as you find the next lane to walk down. How ...
You get quite a surprise when you step out of the train station in Venice. You are instantly greeted by a view of the Grand Canal which is the widest canal in Venice. Big boats move down it along with the gondolas but the gondolas tend to stick mainly to the smaller canals that run through the town. Very tall bridges cross the Grand Canal in only 3 or 4 places so that there is enough room for boats to pass underneath. The taxis in ...

As lovely as the main streets were, with the hundreds of stalls selling ornate Venetian masks and delicate lace scarves (and the odd stall full of total **** of course), we made sure we wandered down as many quiet streets as we could to get a feel for the less tourist driven side of Venice. We came across a tiny bar heaving with local people, all drinking wine sitting on the edge of the canal and even on the boats themselves. ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Almaviva House Venice
Happy and great stay
We booked room with 2 beds. The apartment was very well prepared an immaculate. The decor is very charming: nice old lamps on walls and very modern lamp on the floor. The rooms are very large abd bright. Separate bedroom, huge bed, great shower. We wanted to make only 2 days stay in VEnice but we were so impressed we decided to extend our stay. For the price and quality of Almaviva? Good price and good quality. We hope to be back one day. It would be a great room for our honeymoon.
Almaviva Residence!!! great stay!!!
I was recently in VEnice and I stayed in very new, just opend place. Is called Almaviva Residence and when I arrived there were still smtg to put in order, but this wasn't problem. The place is so well located, the manager of the palce so welcoming and available for all our requested that our trip was really great. I am sure that in a few month this place will be on the top. At moment they don't have web. I find it becasue asked in one restaurant in VEnice. VEry recomandable place.
Almaviva house is a wonderful place to stay, absolutely quiet and perfectly located.
Our room was very large, well equiped with a separated living room, a kitchen and a bathroom. Very nice staff too.
We will return for sure even if the price may seem just a bit high.
Charming stay at the Almaviva House in Venice
My partner and I spent three splendid days at the Almaviva House in Venice on a recent trip to Italy. This B&B is conveniently located near two vaporetto stops but on a very quiet residential street.
Our suite was newly rennovated and included a spotlessly clean modern bathroom with jacuzzi tub/shower, toilet and bidet. The bedroom was clean and very comfortable. The room itself had gorgeous views of the canal and street in front of the House.
Our host and his staff were extremely friendly and gracious. I would most definitely recommend the Almaviva House for anyone looking for quiet, clean alternative to conventional tourist hotels.
Alma Viva House in Venice was an extraoridnary choice of places to stay in Venice. We stayed in the largest room in June of 2005 and the facilities were excellent. It featured a large bedroom and separate lounge area with a beautiful canal view, a huge bathroom with all the necessities and even a jacuzzi tub. With it's charming courtyard, relaxing backyard, and beautifully designed common areas, we felt like we had our own apartment in Venice (a nice apartment at that). Not to mention the extra personal care and attention from Arkadius and all the staff at the Alma Viva that ensured that we had a good breakfast, clean room, tips for seing Venice, and recommendations to excellent restaurants and bars. Alma Viva House made are trip to Venice truly magical! We would highly reccommend that you visit the enchanting city of Venice and if you do, we insist that you choose Alma Viva House for an exceptional experience, you won't be disappointed!
We recently spent a long, relaxing weekend at the Almaviva House in Venice and have already recommended it to our friends. Almaviva is located on the south side of the city, near the Accademia Bridge, but far enough from the throngs of tourists to make it feel like a completely different place.
A very warm and friendly welcome is offered in Almaviva House.
The central lobby provides music and litterature, combined with a beautiful view on a cosy garden and a charming courtyard.
The location is ideal for those who want to reach everything by foot but prefer to be a little bit away from the San Marco tourist masses.
Good luck in our first trip to Venice
Through some friends we contacted with Almaviva for our first trip to Venice and god knows it wasn't disappointed at all.
It was a warm welcome in a nice and big space. It's placed in the centre, in a quiet neighbourhood near a small canal... the best option for those who live under the stress of a big city (like we are). We even get the chance to attend to the "boss" birthday party... A nice host, for sure.
We'll come back.

Triple "BBB" : Best Bed and Breakfast!!!
Triple "BBB" : Best Bed and Breakfast!!!
Yes. it is true. In Venice I was in four different places and this one was the best: clean, sure, familiar, pleasant.
The owner is very open for every kind of help for our party for 8 people. We had gondola ride, restaurant and also very personalized service inside this B&B. Surely we will return for our next birthday.
