... flooding, a phenomenon that rarely occurs in the summer months as compared with the winter months when it is commonplace. The water in the piazza provided a wonderful photographic opportunity with the grand buildings and lights reflecting in the water.

Other YouTube links that entertained us were from 'The Italian job Venice' and 'Madonna Like a Virgin'. What a world that we can call these up instantly!......but for some reason my blog won't post when I tried to enter the weblinks. Travelpod is for some reason not compatible with YouTube?

On our 3rd day in Venice, we slept a little late and had breakfast near the Basilica. It was a beautiful warm spring day. We were a little sad that we might miss the Redbuds blooming in Tulsa but fortunately they ...
Wednesday 4/12 Up much too early considering the temperature, but just right for seeing Venice, I caught a bus into town with a map and a plan - not that either were of much use where I was going. Lost within about 5 minutes, I quite happily wandered my way through the streets to the Accademia Bridge and St Mark’s Square, where stands the magnificent St Mark’s Church and the bell-tower, along with the huge Doge's Palace. The square and surrounding streets were populated ...
... furnished with a perfect little balcony over a gondola canal and a bustling little restaurant opposite. After a quick freshen up, we decided to head out and explore. With so many photo opportunities it was very hard to put my camera down, and I am sure Waz got over my selfies very quickly. The shops were amazing, and on every street we found fabulous glittering Venetian masks, glistening Burano glassware, and scarves, handbags ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Bartolomeo Venice
My husband and I spent 3 nights, May 8, 9, 10 at the Hotel Bartolomeo in Venice. The staff was friendly and helpful and the location near Rialto Bridge was convenient and easy to find. We took the water taxi #82 from the Termini station and got off at the Rialto station. Once we got off, we asked a few locals and were able to find the hotel, no problems. The hotel actually has two buildings; the main one that you arrive at and they've also secured another building (Annex building), which is where we stayed. The rooms were newly renovated and quite nice. There was no real advantage of canal view. The building is so low that you literally see people on the bridge standing and talking away. If only I spoke Italian I could probably even carry a conversation with them J The breakfast was quite good and although the croissants were packaged they were yummy - had a marmalade filling, writing this review now I'm craving it.
Good, clean hotel with an excellent location
We stayed at the Bartolomeo for 3 nights (Apr 21-24) and found it to be very good value for money, booked through an online website, no problems.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and a fair size. Breakfast was adequate to fill you up until lunchtime.
Location couldn't have been better, practically next to the Rialto, a short walk to a supermarket and various eateries. For a first visit to venice it was perfect. The stairs were a killer though, as we were on the fourth floor in room 36.
Overall, we would definitely stay here again on a return trip toVenice. We came with no expectations at all and were very impressed with the hotel, pleased that we'd made a good choice!
We spent four nights in the Bartolomeo Hotel, in room #24.
My husband and I spent 3 nights, Oct. 2,3,4, at the Hotel Bartolomeo in Venice. Although the staff was friendly and helpful and the location near Rialto was convenient and easy to find, we would not stay here again. The bed was way too soft for our tastes. The water pressure on floor 3 1/2 was very low. The walls were thin. The shower had only a curtain and no lip so that water got all over the floor of the bathroom and even into the bedroom. There was no elevator. Finally, the room was warm and stuffy because we had to keep the window closed due to the mosquitos that were eating me alive.
A 5 night stay near the Rialto Bridge Venice
I stayed at the Bartolmeo Hotel right near the Rialto Bridge from 1st to 5th March this year.I got the booking for the Hotel & the flight on-line. It was an excellent small clean & friendly Hotel.The two guys on reception both spoke very good English & helped in every way they could. I was alone but felt very safe & comfortable there. Basic but clean & very convenient position. It was only 40 euros a night but costs vary according to time of the year & how busy they are.To contact:***********.name is Sheila smith. Enneo & Gabriel on recept will remember me.
