Venice - 28th -30th May 2012 We got the train to Venice from Verona which took just over an hour. We were lucky to find accommodation on the main island of Venice so didn't have to figure out the boat taxis. We had a fresh fruit markets just outside our hotel which was so good to get some nice fresh fruit everyday. We decided to do a Gondola ride …
Venice - email to come.
I haven't been able to connect my ipod to a wifi for a few days. I do have a few entries to email. Will send them through and attach to blog hopefully today sometime, otherwise tomorrow.
I can't beleive we are actually on the other side of the world! It still hasn't quite set in yet.
... Looking back at the pictures if took on that first day, they all look the same! We stopped by a little bar right by the water and enjoyed a traditional Italian drink called a Spritz, and enjoyed that while watching people pass by! After trying to ask about a dozen people for help, and trying to understand broken English with a very heavy Italian accent, we finally made it back to our starting point! We caught the bus back ...
... first time, how can it not be from the water? The day is exceedingly grey, with intermittent rain, but the dense skyline of Venice's main island soon emerges through the gloom. The ferry makes its first stop at Murano, one of the smaller islands nearby, then it drops us off at Fondamente Nove on the north-eastern side of the island. We are the only ones landing there — most of the tourists on board will be getting off later at the San Marco ...
... from water level. Once we arrived we were presented with an enormous crowd of tourists, honestly it seems the only people on the islands are tourists and shop workers. Piazza San Marco is a gorgeous area that holds Doge Palace and the Basilica which have impressive architecture. We explored Venice by foot which is an interesting experience as the the paths are narrow and winding and there are a so many canals which can only be traversed via footbridges spotted around the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Alle Guglie Venice
Nice location nice staff
Stayed here for 4 nights...excellent location and staff were very nice and helpful. Room was clean and excellent value for the money. If you want all the trappings of more luxurious hotels pay more money !! I can make do without TV remotes (especially when my Italian can appreciate the football channels but little else) and if you want a slap up breakfast stay at home !!
This hotel was in the thick of things without being noisy. Vaporetto just round the corner, excellent fruit stalls in the market outside, Internet Cafe 3 doors away and more restaurants and shops than you can shake a stick at !!
Enjoyed it very much - recommended - good value !!
We recently stayed at this hotel in late June 2004. First glance, the hotel seemed a bit below average, our room was dark (with dark blue wallpaper and decoration) and gloomy. The beds (2 singles pushed together to make a double) were sagging and lumpy. But the view of the courtyard from the 2 windows were charming! We immediately became friends with the house cat who was sunning beneath our window and who seemed very attached to our room! The staff at the hotel was nice and friendly. Breakfast for 2 was very minimal: a small bag of pre-made toast, some rolls, 2 pieces of butter, 3 little jams, and coffee or tea. The best thing we like about this hotel was the location! Right outside the hotel was the market, fun & bustling all day long! Shops and restaurants were also just steps away from the hotel. Two vaporetto stops sandwiched the hotel nicely - the Guglie stop and the San Marcuolo stop - so it was very convenient to get around Venice from there! Great location aside, our bathroom smelled like "sewage" the entire time we were there! Most unsettling! Well, at least the non-luxurious aspect of the room kept us outside all day long! A good thing when you travel to new places!
We stayed for my birthday 19th March. We found the hotel easily and it was very central. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was a little small but very clean. The resident cat liked to use our room as a throughfare to his favourite sun bathing place on the roof outside, although this was never a problem - the staff were more upset about this than we were.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.
