... with sugar on top. I think they are called cenci. They can be found all over, and they melt in your mouth. Kind of like thin crispy beignets. There are no "throws" here. No beads, no stuffed animals, no light-up hair things, no sparkly shoes, no painted coconuts. Just celebrations without "stuff." How un-American... Since we've only just had a taste Carnevale, we'll have to check it out again next year to see if our first impressions hold true. In the meantime, Buon ...
... are all a part of Venice vacation you will never forget. Along the Canal Grande are various piazzas, churches and monasteries, most of them accessible to the public. The main sights are centered at and around the piazza of San Marco. Besides presenting an abundance of impressive architectural diversity, several buildings also house museums and/or galleries. The Rialto Bridge is one of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice. It is the oldest bridge across the ...
... to me and said, "What did you do?" Haha. When our gondola ride was over we went to this place on a canal off the main street. It was pretty tasty. Right down the road at Al Timo. is where I read had some of the best spritz in Venice. Apparently Venice makes the best spritz, so we had to try it. They were really good and must have been a cool hangout for people, because the place was packed. They were pretty good drinks ...
We took a
bullet train to Venice which only took 3 ½ hours from Rome to get there. It was
really fast: up to 280 kph. When we
arrived at Venice we took a water taxi to our home. The streets are canals and the cars are
boats: it was really awesome!
I bought a
mask as a souvenir to take home. In February they have Carnevale in Venice
which is a pre lent ...
Tramping the well worn 'calles' of Venice was well worth the effort today adaptive the increasing heat. Michael had a nose of the cake shops, window shopping only at this stage. We took ourselves on a self guided walking tour to parts of San Marco that were new to us and familiar places from last year. The Rialto bridge has a view that always amazes me. We found the marker of the centre of Venice, more statues of the St. Marks lion of Venice, an amazing external ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Arco Antico Guest House Venice
We stayed at Ca Arco Antico in San Polo in mid October. Our room (Canaletto Room) was the largest we had on our trip to Italy. A small terrace overlooking a narrow alleyway offers the slimmest of glimpses of the Grand Canal. It's close to the S.Silvestri vaparetto (but very difficult to find the first time). If not for our Italian "angel", a slightly odd, older Italian man who grabbed us and implored us to follow him...we might still be looking for it. Once we collected our bearings, it was fairly easy to navigate the area. And much more fun without luggage.
This is the best of all the hotels we stayed in Italy. Though it is a little difficult to find initially, the hotel is very very nice. The rooms are exceptionally clean and tidy. Hotel staff is very very helpful and understands and speaks english. The breakfast was good.
The location of hotel is ideal for Rialto bridge and St. Mark's square. They both are 10 mins walk from hotel. The grand canal is just 10 meters away.
If I go to Venice again, I will not stay at any other hotel.
Simply the Best
A little tough to find, but well worth the effort. Least expensive place we stayed in Italy, but also the best. Excellent location. Room was immaculate. Very quiet area. Breakfast was generous and delicious. Staff was very helpful. If we return to Venice, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. A great value!
My husband and I and our 10 year old son have just spent the most brilliant 5 nights in this superb hotel. Excellent value for money and after we had looked at some of the other,larger, more expensive hotels in Venice we were so pleased we had picked this one. What friendly,lovely owners-very helpfull too! The rooms are lovely,really nicely done out and kept and the location is superb. A quiet area yet literally just metres from the Grand Canal where we spent many a happy time just sitting on the jetty with a beer and a coca cola watching the boats go by and hearing the gondoliers sing. We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Venice-brilliant!!
We recently spent 3 nights at the Hotel Arco Antico and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was the most reasonable 3 star hotel we could find in Venice, but once we arrived we found that it was nicer than other 4 star hotels we had stayed in.
The rooms are beautiful and immaculate and the staff was very considerate and friendly.
We would highly recommend this hotel!
Really enjoyed our stay here!
My family and I really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is immaculate (and the serve a nice breakfast!) and the 2 couples that own the hotel go out of their way to serve you. It was really wonderful to find such a nice place for the price. Yes, you have to walk or take a boat to get to San Marco area, but this is Venice! The walking and exploring is the best part! Besides, the hotel location allowed it to be very quiet and yet we were only a 1 minute walk from a great shopping area. We were also only a 10 minute walk to lots of restaurants.
A very pleasant stay!
The Locanda Arco Antico is situated right in the centre of Venice - ideal for exploring the city. We were primarily attracted by the price, comparable to other hotels which were either in Mestre or the Lido. We were pleasantly surprised by our room, Casanova, which suited our purposes as we were only staying for two nights. The bathroom was very clean and modern, we apparently also had the only jacuzzi bath in the hotel! Breakfast (included) was served promptly and we had a good choice of food. All in all, a very pleasant stay!
Very impressed for the price. This was the least expensive of our accomodations for our trip to Italy. We had a family room that accomodated 5. It had a larger room with a smaller room that held 2 single beds. The room and bathroom was immaculate. The breakfast was good with ham, rolls, pastries, yogurt, juice, and hot drinks. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. A bit difficult to find though.
Convenient to where we wanted to go. Would highly recommend this place.
We only paid 125 euros for all of us.
Cute & Comfortable
Very cute & comfortable, quite location but yet close to shops, restaurants, etc.. It's located about 2-3 minute walk to St Silvestro boat stop, which takes you anywhere in Venice. Marco, Lorenza, Gianfranco & Antonella, all were so accommodating and helpful. I would definately stay there again!
