... to one big fat thimble! We made our way to the track, the train came right on time, and we were off! We got to florence, expertly used the pay bathrooms, and found our track. Now that we are done with trains and I can't jinx myself, we totally rocked it out, if I do say so myself! We found our carriage, and went to get on. What a crush of people! If you ever go to Europe and will ride the trains, please pack small luggage!! You should have seen these people trying to get ...
... 7. Thankfully the ticket worked again at stand A! We were soon on our way through the canals in the direction of the hotel, taken in by the sights and the craziness of venice. One stop before ours another hurdle was thrown our way... "Finito" said the boat man. We all looked each other. "Finito" he repeats and indicates that we get off the boat. All turned out ok though as we could see the next stop, so we wandered off to find ...
... further away from where I started, in the opposite direction! It was quite a feat, I believe, to get as lost as I did. Well that's what I thought. Until when I made it back to my hostel and read in my Lonely Planet guide: "Venice is not an easy place to navigate and even with a map you're bound to get lost..." That definitely made me feel ALOT better!
But there is something to appreciate from walking and getting lost. ...
... the more colourful the pigeons are, the more in bred they are. Although I believe no experience will top that of eating Ice cream in Italy in 4 degrees weather, it is the Burano island that fascinates me and is a photographers dream. With one hour to view the island, it becomes a challenge for us to capture all the coloured houses and culture of this place with people hanging their washing out the window. Paula and I are found running around ...
... quite good, but the hotel a bit 'Faulty Towers' with Basil at Reception. I then got stuck in the lift in between floors, which wasn't capable of taking both Bob and I and luggage, but I thought would be fine for me and my case - wrong! The lift was glass and about 1m X 1m square. Eventually Basil got his colleague to get me ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' San Rocco Venice
My husband and I just got back from a long weekend at this family-run B & B. It's an amazing location; close enough to Piazzale Roma that you don't have to walk to far with luggage, close to the studenty area of Campo Santa Margarita to go out at night, but on a quiet side street so you get a perfect night's sleep. And you can still easily walk to all the well-worn touristy bits if so desired. Frari, Scuola San Rocco, San Pantalon with it's amazing ceiling & the fantastically tilty San Barnaba are all on the doorstep.
The room & shower room were immaculate, bed was comfy & huge, and the room was flooded with sunlight ( a treat in a city with such narrow streets). The central heating worked perfectly, as did the 2 heated towel rails. Staff were friendly, breakfast was tasty (with a very inviting-looking terrace that we'll have to try out next time when the weather is better), and even a little courtyard to sit in in good weather.
If I had to find one fault, the shower was a little small. But the bathroom is clean, gorgeous and brand-spanking new. You can see they've put a lot of thought (and money) into doing this place up. You quickly get over the size of the shower!
We would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful hotel in Venice
The Ca' San Rocco is a delightful haven in an amazing city. It is located in a residential neighborhood of Venice (San Polo), and it is surrounded by trees and homes of locals. At night the only sounds are the wind in the leaves of the mature trees and the occasional conversation between Venetians out on their balconies.
The room was well maintained, very clean and very pretty. It was so quiet, we thought we might be the only guests staying in the hotel, but later found out it was full. The only possible issue was that my 6ft. 2in. husband found the shower a bit small.
The staff are all very helpful and warm. They all spoke English, and all strove to meet our needs. The breakfast in the morning was perfectly adequate for our needs, though don't expect an American-style banquet.
We had a gorgeous, large terrace/balcony and we loved sitting there each night, after a long day of sight-seeing and enjoying the homey feel of the place.
I spent MANY long hours researching and looking for a hotel. I think my labor was not in vain. Save yourself the effort and book at Ca' San Rocco. We expect to return again and again.
We loved our stay at the Ca' San Rocco. It's a nice location in San Polo, with a beautiful garden terrace and the best breakfast we had in Italy. The room was spacious and clean, and the bed was comfortable. We would definitely stay there again.
Ca' San Rocco was the best hotel we stayed in over our two week tour through France, Italy and Austria! The room was large and spotless and the bathroom had ammenities you'd expect in a much more expensive hotel (towel warmer, deep soaking tub, tiled floors). The staff was so friendly and helped us find our way around Venice. We walked from the train station to the hotel with our 2 large rolling suitcases with no problem. The hotel is "off the beaten path" and therefore lets you escape the hustle and bustle of the Rialto and St. Mark's. My husband and I highly recommend this quaint and delightful hotel!
Lovely and Quaint
My husband and I stayed at Ca'San Rocco for 3 nights. The walk from the hotel to the train station was about 10 minutes and the directions offered on the hotel's website were accurate and clear.
The room at Ca'San Rocco was the nicest and largest room we experienced on our 2-week trip through France, Italy and Austria. The bed was large and comfy, and the bathroom was IMMACULATE! The tub was big enough for a bubble bath and the towel warmer was a nice touch we certainly didn't expect! We had a small balcony off our bedroom, and on Easter Sunday morning, we opened it so we could hear the bells ringing all over Venice. It was lovely!
This hotel isn't in a touristy area, so it was quiet at night and away from the hustle and bustle of St. Mark's Square, etc. I'd say the hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk from St. Mark's but we were really glad to "get away" every night to our cozy hotel. The walk to the Rialtto and St. Marks is fun and full of shops, vendors and gellato stands! We LOVED IT!
The breakfast at the hotel was tasty and the staff were very nice and accomodating to our needs. My husband says he's never going back to Venice. He says there were too many tourists...It WAS Easter weekend!! BUT he would (and I would too) recommend this delightful and charming hotel to anyone traveling to Venice.
A perfect place to stay in Venice
This small hotel with less than ten rooms or so was a perfect place to stay in Venice. The location was good, a bit away from the biggest flows of tourists but on the other hand nothing is far away in Venice. A friendly staff, a recently renovated, spotless and very spacey room was one of the very best I've stayed in anywhere. Seriously. Of course Venice is not the cheapest spot in the world but we really felt we got our money's worth at this hotel. I would recommend this for anyone visiting Venice.
Why we love Venice
The hotel was more than we could have hoped for and that says all. Our room was so welcoming and had to be in Venice and the staff could not have been more helpful. Just make sure you have an accurate map.
