Vitruvian Man

A travel blog entry by mugharrington


... we accepted their recommendation. We arrived about 6:30 PM and didn’t have to wait. The waiter was very friendly but he overcharged us for our meal which was OK but not really that great. It ended up being about as expensive as our much nicer restaurant the night before. I felt like the "tourists" were taken advantage of. Not feelin’ the love ...

Train to Venice

A travel blog entry by swri


Up ready for breakfast, lovely sunrise from our balcony. Another cruise ship in to replace yesterday's one. Checked out, wheeled bags along to train station, bit of effort required for so early in the morning. Caught train to Ventimiglia, lots of suitcase lifting up and down stairs no lifts.......then had a wait of about an hour for the next train to Milan. Just arrived at Genova, On way to Milan. Initially had carriage to self, then we had an Italian gentleman get on at ...

Venice - Days 7 & 8

A travel blog entry by coznlinda


... into Italy since a customs agent came aboard to check passports. The ride was smooth and I tried to work on photos but I couldn't keep my eyes open until we arrived in Venice. What a sight! This is my second visit to Venice and the beauty and charm of this magical city is still delightful. Robin is now almost giddy with excitement and we haven't even seen the Grand Canal. We disembarked and cleared customs in hardly no time, bought our vaporetto (boat ...

Day Sixteen

A travel blog entry by sarahpursell


... There was so much to buy there but most of it was too big and would not survive my suitcase. After this we headed down to the canal where the gondola rides begin and jumped on the gondolas for a ride through Venice, it was so nice and I am still amazed at how they function with canals instead of roads. After the canal ride we had free time so a few of us headed of in search of pasta... When in Italy. We found a ...

Getting Lost in Venice

A travel blog entry by travelbugs3


... the history of Venice which we went to before the show and was very informative.

The show itself was good, the acting was good and was funny in places but it was pretty much exactely the same as the documentry film except longer and in more detail, we thought it was to be a play about something to do with Venice, not just a history lesson of Venice. Afterwards we went for dinner, which was included in the show price, and then headed back to the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Arco Antico Guest House Venice

    A Venetian gem in a great area...if you can find it.


    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.

    Best hotel


    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!!

    Wonderful hotel!


    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!

    Great value


    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!
