... is applied for this purpose (as opposed to Germany when ~1euro pp is recommended).
Venice is beautiful but we think one full day of exploring is enough. We overheard talk of some islands(?) around 45mins-1hr boat ride away where there are beautiful beaches to lie on - this might be something worth while if you are there longer especially in summer. We also did not visit the glass museum, which is still vaguely on my to do list.
... at the entrance of the Grand Canal.
Did we do a Gondola ride? Yes and No, we needed to get across the Grand Canal to reach Santa Maria, and took a Tragetta - a short Gondola ride from one side to the other.
Santa Maria church very ornate on the outside but very plain on the inside, compared to St. Mark's.
We then jumped onto the city water bus to tour the Grand Canal from end to end. Took way too many pictures, it all started to look the same after ...
... glass shop after glass shop – Murano glass from Venice has become famous all over the world. We had a quick pizza and a Bellini (local peach-based champagne drink) – one was enough, too sweet for me!
At 8.30 we met back in the square and went to a very old cafe where a band was playing on thei little bandstand in the outdoor area. We sat and enjoyed the music whilst sipping hot chocolate – it was unlike any hot chocolate I've ...
Then - After resting in Rome, it was time for the 45th to get ready to make the final push to take down the Germans for the sake if humanity. The plan was to go back to sea and come ashore in France. They would land at St. Maxime, France and then push east. In preparation for another fierce battle on the beach the 45th would need to train for the invasion. The division moved back south to train at Naples, Anzio, and Salerno, Italy. Returning ...
... flying around, you could even see the alps! No kidding! It was freezing and windy as hell up there though, really regretted not bringing my thermal pants that time. Some poor lady was making a really cool sketch of the Venice views but had long traces of mucous coming down her nose, I don’t know if she knew…probably not cos when I spoke to her all she just remarked on how cold it was and how she couldn’t draw straight lines XD…I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' Gottardi Venice
Best Hotel in Venice!
We stood in Ca' Gottardi on Jan 19 for 2 nights in their lovely suite. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated with Venetian Chandelier and magnificent furnitures; we can stay in our room all day long and admire the room itself.
The hotel was located well with everything close by. Owner of the hotel were very friendly and helpful, when we are leaving (we had 2 huge luggage), he and the bellboy carried the luggage for us all the way to the dock for us. We really appreciated it! We love Venice and we love Ca' Gottardi, we will definitely come back to Venice stay in Ca' Gottardi again!
A lovely place
I just returned from Venice and I stayed at Ca Gottardi. The deal was really good : 180 Euros for the Suite which is really nice !!! The hotel is well located, staff is pleasant and helpful. The only thing, breakfast is nothing special and could be improved. Except this, the place is great. I'll come back for sure.
Lovely Hotel, Very good service
My parents stayed at this hotel on a trip I planned for their anniversary, and on their return they said what a lovely hotel Ca' Gottardi was, that the owner/manager & all the other staff were very nice & helpful. They found the hotel very handy for getting to water-bus stops to see all the sites of Venice and getting to & from the bus & train stations.
This is beautiful hotel. It is obvious that the Costerini family considered every detail and the quality of the materials they used is astounding! The lovely red silk brocade wall covering with matching drapes and bedspread - breathtaking. The Morano glass chandeliers -wow. Sleek design in the modern bathroom and excellent hot water and water pressure. The fragrance of fresh baked pastries was a welcome morning greeting. The reception/grand parlor/breakfast room is as elegant as the rooms in the grand palazzo's. The family/staff is most helpful, freindly and low key. They helped us book concerts and water taxi. The location is great. Lots of foot traffic during the day but quiet at night. The hotels opens right onto the Strada Nuova so the door is locked at 10pm but a ring of the doorbel gains quick access. The hotels was safe and secure. The most beatiful, romantic hotelroom I've ever had the pleasure to enjoy!
Our first trip to Venice: We absolutely loved Ca' Gottardi and immediately felt lucky to be staying there considering we selected it from pictures and reviews. We couldn't have asked for a better hotel. From the sumptuous decoration to the warm family feel of the staff, we felt at home from the moment we arrived. The location is ideal-- close to the train station means easy to get to when you arrive. The surrounding area is full of wonderful osterias where you can enjoy local dishes and drinks ~ and move on and try the next one. Venetian bar hopping! Staff was helpful and courteous - they arranged both a walking tour and a trip to Murano for us. Our room had a fabulous picturesque view of the Rio de Noal that was quiet and romantic but still allowed you to watch people and light boat traffic. Although we have never stayed on the Grand Canal, we'd imagine the number of water buses and taxis going by there is not nearly as romantic or charming as a room in Ca' Gottardi. Breakfast is wonderful sitting in the dining room next to huge windows over the canal having a coffee and pastry. Ca' Gottardi is a very special place that will always hold a memorable spot in our hearts.
An absolute jewel ...
We were double booked at our original choice hotel and offered accommodation at Ca Gottardi. What a beautiful place!! The blend of modern amenities and facilities with the style and elegance of Venetian furnishings and fabrics is stunning. The staff were most helpful and considerate and helped to make our stay memorable. We're looking forward to returning again in the very near future.
What a place!
We stayed in this beautiful hotel with kids - the whole family loved it. The place is impeccable, the rooms are clean and spacious, all the services were great. The staff was extremely helpful and corteous. The location was extremely convenient, and close to the center. WILL BE BACK FOR SURE!!!
Ca' Gottardi was a very special place for my husband and I and our two friends to experience Venice for the first time.
My husband and I just returned from Venice; we were fortunate to find this hotel, where we stayed for six nights.
I had originally reserved for a week in Venice at a recommended "boutique" style hotel near St Mark's Square and was happy with my choice. Being a first time visitor to Venice, I didn't want to take any potentially disappointing risks. Each time I visited a web site to do research for our trip however, I kept seeing a pop-up ad for the Ca Gottardi. Its location [a 10 minute walk to the train station] intriqued me since we were planning 2 or 3 day trips by train to visit other towns in the Veneto. I was unable to cross reference the hotel in any guide books since it had just opened in February, 2003. At the last minute I cancelled my first reservation and booked at the Ca Gottardi. A 10 room boutique hotel decorated with period furniture, antiques and some modern touches, it couldn't have been lovlier. The young staff was helpful and knowledgeabe and the location was convenient. The only negatives were the bridge repair right in front of the hotel [a temporary situation] and the freezing October weather [circumstantial and nothing to do with the hotel]. For big people. the larger rooms are recommended. I'd definitely return.
