... pretty city, allowing us to shrug off the stress of our circumstances from time to time.
We have a lot to think about. Its the final few days of our adventure plans and we need to decide what to do next. We are in the final quarter of our allocated budget. The collapse of the Australian Dollar hasn't helped us there. Its time to think about working, and how and when to get back to Australia. Its crunch time, and no wifi for the last 10 nights hasn't helped us. ...
... our gondola ride, we decided to have a better look around the town and managed to get lost in the old passageways again. The gondola ride was nice, although some of the romance was taken out of it because you had at least 5 gondolas all going in the same direction, fighting for space on the canal with the guides hassling each other in Italian. Was a fun ride all the same! We then wandered the streets some more where I bought a murano glass quill and wine bottle ...

We were drawn into a restaurant by a man on the street who insisted they had the best food in Venice. We gave him a pretty *************sidering all of the restaurants claim to be the best.

My first night in Venice I actually stayed out of Venice, near Mestre, in a private room in a random hotel. I hadn't booked a room for this night due to my schedule changing slightly, so I took the opportunity for some rest. I did laundry, ate some delicious pizza in a nearby packed restaurant, then went to bed early, enjoying a hot shower in the luxury of my private bathroom.
The next morning I took the train to Venice proper to drop my bags off at ...

Once we met the group we went by very noisy boat to Murano Island while Guiseppe gave us running commentary on history and Island names. We passed the house where Casanova lived. He was a priest! and well known for having intimate liaisons with many Venetian ladies.

Historical Traveler Reviews Casanova ai Tolentini Venice
Fantastic little B&B in a wonderful position. It's easy to get lost in Venice however it is always easy to find this place as you can just follow the signs to the bus station. I arranged for my Mum to stay here (she was by herself) and Alberto met her at the train station late at night and carried her backpack all the way to the B&B, with cute little white dog in tow. My husband and I arrived a few days later, without a reservation, and Alberto was amazingly accommodating. The rooms here are spacious, super clean, great value and could not be better. I don't think the photos on their website do the place justice because it was 10 times better in the flesh. The B&B does not have a sign on the front of the building so I would recommend you take your phone to make contact with Alberto when you arrive - because of this Casanova ai Tolentini feels more like a home away from home than a B&B - your own little slice of Venice.
My wife, two adult children, 21 and 19 years of age, and I recently stayed at the Casanova ai Tolentini B and B in Venice. Absolutely wonderful!. We arrived at the Venice train station, Santa Maria Novella, walked out the front of the station to see the Grand Canal. Awesome. I called Alberto from the Train Station and he gave me great directions, but before we could get to the B & B he met us about half-way there. The Casanova is on the interesection of two small canals in a friendly, quite neighborhood veyr near the Architecture school.
My Husband and I have just arrived back from our trip in Venice we stayed at the B & B Casanova ai Tolentini, The location was fantastic just 100 metres from Piazzo Roma which is the main square for the buses to airport etc, the host Alberto & Monica where fantastic, they made us feel very welcome and it was like home from home, the breakfast room was bright and airy looking over the canal with lovely red geraniums. Tthe delux room that we stayed in was beautiful, and it made us want to spend time there when you needed a rest. The B& B is only small with 5 bedrooms, each room is decorated beautiful and is located central for everything around you. Absolutely superb.
Good place to stay in Venice
We were at B&B Casanova ai Tolentini the three of us last May in the same room. We had a double bed and a sofa and the room was big enough for 3. Very well located near the train station. Alberto offered us to leave our luggages in the B&B the day of our arrival and our departure which was very nice to allowed us visit Venice without our bags. Breakfast was very good : one of the best we've had in Italy. Room and bathroom were very clean. Nice place to stay and near everything to visit as Venice is not that big. I recommand this place
My wife, two children, and I recently stayed at the Casanova ai Tolentini B and B in Venice. A true pleasure. We drove to Venice and parked in one of the big parking towers at the end of the causeway - near the train station. From there it was just a short walk to the Casanova which was really convenient - about two blocks. The Casanova is on the interesection of two small canals in a friendly, quite neighborhood. Alberto and Monica quickly ushered us in (bring the phone contact - they're just around the conrner if not onsite). With one of the main Vaporetto staitons around the corner (Roma) you can zip anywhere quickly.
First Class Accommodation at Casanova ai Tolentini
Our seven nights at this excellent Bed & Breakfast were much appreciated and the cost most reasonable. Its position could not have been improved, i.e. right in the centre of a quiet and original part of the city but close enough to the Grand Canal for travelling to the rest of Venice. This area around the Scalzi Bridge offers much interest and is close enough to the Piazza Roma for tourists to venture further afield if required.
The cleanliness of the accommodation was outstanding and the breakfasts were first class.
Our hosts, Alberto and Monica, were friendly, most obliging and very helpful with advice in relation to places of interest and our shopping requirements.
We can only echo the experience of other reviews on this web site the stay at B and B Casanova ai Tolentini was perfect for us travelling as ayoung family. Arriving at Piazzale Roma by bus the three of us (two adults one child of 2.5 years) only had a short distance to walk (2 mins) to the canalside where the b and b is located. Really convenient but you instantly felt that you were in the Venice. We were met by the ever helpful and happy Alberto and were extremely pleased to see the high standard of the room with ensuite bathroom/shower. It was not only clean but decorated to a good modern standard. As we were marking our anniversary we also appreciated the chocolate hearts left for us after our room was cleaned each day.
Au coeur de Venise
Alors là, c'est rare et précieux ! Un accueil chaleureux, une situation au coeur de la ville, des chambres impeccables, des petits déjeuners très sympathiques qui donnent la pêche pour la journée, tout ça pour un prix raisonnable et la bonne humeur en prime. Grazie mille !

My wife and I stayed at the Casanova dei Tolenti in May 2006 whilst in Venice for 4 days. The hotel has an excellent location 20 minutes walk away from the throng of San Marco on the San Polo/Santa Croce Sestriere border. It is situated in a quiet, pretty part of Venice on the Gafaro Canal and is the perfect base for anyone who wishes to just 'walk' and get lost in Venice. There are plenty of great fish restaurants (Da Fiore, Antiche Carampane) nearby, the closest ice cream seller is less than 1 minute away on the other side of the canal, and the nearest Osteria is literally 50 yards down the canal. You could not pick a better spot. to stay in Venice.
The Casanova ai Tolentini was a wonderful B&B for our stay in Venice. We were there for approximately 3 nights in the beginning of April. It is located within walking distance of the train station. The rooms were immaculate and beautifully decorated. The B&B owners, Alberto and his wife Monica are gracious hosts, and eager to please.
