This quaint hotel is in a great location. A short walk from Santa Lucia Station and close to the Vaporetto. The rooms are large, comfortable and furnished with love. Sitting behind the 'big red door' is an oasis from the chaos of the Venice laneways. A gorgeous courtyard offers a nice break from the crowds. Restaurants and bars are abundant in the local area, head down a few of the smaller alleys to find the locals. You will be made to feel most welcome by the attentive family who have restored and operate this B & B.

They even had cool monkey skulls and fossils in this shop. We also saw these crazy gift shops selling crazy inventions and we ...
... numbers as they change in the elevator. Finally they reach the top which is breathtaking. The rain is still coming down and the misty skies over this floating city make for a surreal experience and endless grammertunities. After 10-15 minutes of photography they head back down and back out into the rain.
The next item on the list is assuredly food, and it's a tough goal as the rain has chased the entire ...

I'm not quite ready to quit my day job to go to gondolier school full-time, but if I was in Venice another day, I would have asked to schedule another lesson. If you come to Venice and can stand without a cane, you HAVE to do this. Skip the ...
... After inquiring again, he told me he couldn't get there because of the water, and that I needed a water taxi...first time I've ridden on one of these....cool! Arriving at the hotel gave the first 'postcard' view, as the window led directly to a beautiful canal.
In the morning it was off to Piazza San Marco, the main square in Venice. The walk there was interesting, as carnival was going on at this time, which meant many people were dressed in all kinds of crazy outfits ...
