Sad to say goodbye to the perfect villa on the lake and our morning swims. But looking forward to seeing Ingrid again. Drove through the gottardo tunell - has to be one of the longest tunnels in the world ( will check later)! Driving past the Swiss alps - snow covered but outside its 37 degrees!! Crazy - thank god for air conditioning .
... We arrived at 11 PM thursday night, so we just stayed in and slept before our big day friday.
Friday we woke up and ate breakfast at our hostel... 5 euro for an all you can eat buffet of american-esc breakfast and took a shuttle and a "people mover" over the water and arrived on the island! We of course stopped right away and bought postcards before wandering the streets and stopping into every store that was somewhat appealing.. We all ended up ...
... as a prelude to moving on to a proper restaurant for a meal. We try some thin toasted slices of bread with baccala, and others with blue cheese topped with an anchovy. All are delicious, and at €1.50 each and €2 for the prosecco we drink with them, it's a bargain. After this break I set out to deliberately get us lost, as we haven't spent any time on this side of the canal yet. We wander through tiny back streets ...
... brilliant. Very few people there so you could get up really close to all the drawings. He was such a talented man!! Most of the drawings were quite small and his writing (not sure of the term but it is written so that you can only read it in a mirror) was wonderful. The absolute highlight for me was The Vitruvian Man - his famous drawing of the "man in the circle". The absolute detail of everything was amazing. This was a fabulous opportunity ...

I had a pesto risotto (cooked fresh in front of me) and Charlene had a meat & cheese platter with parmigiana reggiano. The "truck stop food" in Italy has a different meaning. On to Florence. We happened to arrive during ...

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.
