Travel Blogs from Venice
Today we leave Bassano Del Grappa for the next leg of our trip, an 81km drive to Venice where we drop off the car at Avis. It's another interesting road trip, with road signs that don't match our road map and another trip along the 130kph Autostrade for a short distance from Pardova to the Venice exit. Despite this, we find ourselves crossing the Ponte della Liberta, the bridge that connects Venice to the mainland. It's quite a hazy day, and we see two ...
... are lethal! They don't get scared of you and if they think you have food on you they fly up on your arms! Crazy stuff. After bargaining with many different gondola rider people we realized the standard price was 80 euro (maaaan!) and Erin and I shared the cost for Hannah's birthday! The gondola was very relaxing and obviously a must do, especially seeing where casino royale (and 'the Tourist'- who cares about that movie though) ...
... San Marco Piazza it was time for lunch which we somehow got convinced to go into one restaurant which was tiny and even hotter than outside. At least the gnocchi was good. Venice was pretty awesome but the major downfall was that there was just nowhere to sit! So we found ourselves sitting like bums on stairs around the bridges. Other than that nothing much really happened it was just an amazing place to loiter around for a couple of ...
The boat ride finished too soon and we walked along the waterfront watching 2 big ocean liners with their tugs ...
... the whole time we were there! the taxi stop we had to go to was across the island so we wandered over there. we saw a heap of gondolas but it was about 120 euros for 50 minutes so we didnt get to go for a ride. they have some really good mask shops there. some of them are just incredible. i really wanted to get a photo but everywhere had no photo signs up so that sucked. i would have bought one but they were around 300 euros. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' San Giorgio Venice
I have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Ca San Giorgio. We spent 1 night in the Suite with the panoramic view which was absolutely beautiful, sitting on the roof top balcony with great views of the teracotta roof tops of Venice. Then we moved into a double room, again a beautiful room with a great bathroom. It seems all the rooms are spotless and decorated to the same high standard. The building itself is quaint and a hidden gem in a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, with some geat local restaurants on a nearby square. The staff are so friendly and helped out with all directions and recommendations of places to visit and eat, often off the tourist track and allowing us to mix with the "real Venetians". I will definitely be going back to this hotel, it was more than I expected, take a look at the web site and it shows exactly what it is like.
Didn't Want To Leave
I was able to reserve a room here for my 3 nights in Venice. This was by far my favorite place to stay. Chiara was so helpful and very nice. I was lucky enough to have a room with wonderful French doors that opened to a balcony. In the evenings, I sat out there with a book and glass of wine and enjoyed the sounds of Venice.
The breakfast was a wonderful way to start the day. I have nothing but good things to say about my stay there.
Thank you so much for making Venice all the more wonderful.
Just arrived home from our 5 night stay in Ca San Giorgio, Venice. (Junior suite)
Nice and cosy
we booked our honeymoon stay at Ca San Giorgio for 3nights and it was splendid! Chiara was a great help in recommending the nearby restaurants as well as places to visit.
Upon arrival at airport, we bought the 3day ticket and took the ACTV bus down to Piazza Roma, and from there transfer to the water bus, which is just 2 stops to the RIVA DE BIASIO station. upon reaching this station, it's a 3min walk to Ca San Giorgio... Having the ticket was just great, as we used it to travel round Venice, even to Murano!
Simply loved the bathroom tiles here, its' really nice! Breakfast could not have been better, with the most wondrous yougurt, cheese and ham! tks again Silvia & Chiara for such a wonderful stay.
The beauty and comfort of the rooms, delightfully decorated, the quality of the food and drinks served for breakfast, the warm hospitality of Silvia and Chiara, always ready to help with friendly manners and a smile, along with some remarkable details (free use of the Internet in your own room with wireless laptop - mini bar, kitchen corner, eco-toilet paper, TV and stereo)and last, but not least, decent price for quality and location (10 minute walk from railway station, 10 minutes by boat to Rialto) made it an excellent stay. Unforgettable!
Venice, Italy: Cà San Giorgio (Bed & Breakfast)
After 3 trips to Venice and 3 different hotels Cà San Giorgio is without any doubt our place. It is well located in Santa Croce in a quite street 50 meters from Grand Canal and close to the Vaparetto. Once used as a convent, the entire building has been beautifully restored about a year a go. We stayed 4 nights in the junior suite which is huge with very high sealings, it is elegantly decorated and it has great atmosphere. Everything is kept very clean. The breakfasts were the best we have had in Italy with freshly baked pastries, cereals, fresh fruit, yughurt, juices, great coffee, tea and hot chocolate and eggs cooked to your taste. The service is excellent; welcoming, most helpful, they give great recommendations and they are pleased to make reservations. We can very much recommend the hotel.
A fantastic little place
stayed with my girlfriend for one night. excellent location, although a little tricky to find at first as no hotel signs allowed in venice!. excellent, attentive and friendly staff and the rooms were amongst the best i've seen. i'm an airline pilot and stay in plenty of hotels. this one is lovely.
What a hidden treasure. We stayed here for 3 wonderful nights. The courtyard of the building has been refurbished splendidly with wooden beams, exposed brick and impressive features.The room was large, imaculate and stylish. The location is on a very quiet street, yet close to the Grand Canal. Breakfast is good. The staff are the most helpful and friendly people you could wish to meet. They helped to make the stay an absolute pleasure. We would recommend to anyone looking for charm with comfort and style.
A lovely place to stay
It has been a really good surprise this ancient and all renewed house.
Easy to reach by walking or by steamboat, all around there is a lot of quiet even if you're near all the major and interesting Venice attractions.
Our room (a double) was smart and very comfortable, and quite roomy.
We enjoy a lot our brief stay (only 1 night) and went away with some regrets.
The people were kindness and prompt to any needs we had.
A lovely place to stay; our suggestion is to try it: you won'tbe disappointed!
