... and into the small lane ways where cars don't fit, and we loved seeing the views and the magnificent homes built along the cliff top. Whilst our bed room had the great view, I forgot to mention it was on the top floor, and there was no lift and it was up 60 steeps! Now this is not for the faint hearted or the unfit! Joe, you would love it! Murdoch was kept very busy running errands for Lauren and I!(Cameras, jumpers etc) We took the ferry to the ...
... by quickly and after two hours we were on the narrow highway connecting Venice with the mainland of Italy. With views out every window of clear blue sea and adorable little Italian houses in sight on the island, it seemed like we were arriving in paradise. Stepping out on the platform in Venice, we were basically right. Clearly several thousand other tourists thought the same, as the city was swarming, but this did not take away from the ...
My train arrived in Venice, late afternoon on December 26th.
Having some time to kill before Haley, Katelyn and Robin arrived, I made my way to my hostel. Definitely not the most lavish hostel I have stayed in, but considering I was staying in Venice on a budget, it was a nice clean room to stay in. I dropped off my stuff and headed right back out the door. I spent a few hours walking around close to the hostel, doing some window shopping, looking for restaurants and watching ...
... does have what I am looking for in the window. The shop is empty and staff out the back show no signs of interest in helping me, but after I stand there puzzled for a few seconds a petite Japanese lady suddenly pops up like a robot from where she had apparently been hiding behind one of the counters. I order two croissants and a pain au chocolate, and thank her with a well-pronounced "Merci beaucoup." As I walk out the door I realise too late that ...
... We waited in line for about 20 mins for the no. 2 fast ferry to San Marco Square, although we were only going to the Rialto, but we didn't fit on that one, partly due to lots of queue jumpers. Then a few minutes later one came just for the Rialto stop & we joined about about ten others on that one, which gave us nice views along the Grand Canal. We headed back to the markets area, with lots of fruit & veg stalls then further on was the amazing seafood area. We ...

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!
