... cool to see and smelly! We bought a little tub of strawberries and sat by the water taking in the view as we ate them and relaxed. After that our plan was to buy a "water bus" pass and go to some of the little islands. Luck was definitely not on our side because Jamie's visa wouldn't work and at that same moment it started to POUR! There was a crazy thunderstorm. We hid out on the floating bus stop waiting for the rain to stop, but it did not! So, we trekked back to the hotel ...
... one hour trying to find the proper bus. The bus was so crowded you could barely move. It's probably about 20 to 25 minutes to go to our bus stop and then we had to call the lady to come and pick us up. By the time we finally got to our accommodations it was well after 6 PM. We decided not to go back into town but to find somewhere nearby to have supper. We settled in to make plans for a full day in Florence the next ...
... are to be on this trip. After a day of vespas and traveling by train, we crashed...I think both of us passed out with the biggest smiles and most relaxed bodies ever! The next day, Tuesday (July 17th), we woke up early and ready to tackle Venice since we really only had one full day for exploration and we took the water bus to the famous Piazza San Marco. We have included tons of pics taken from different times we took the water bus throughout the Grand ...
The plan was to drive to Florence, pick up
Magic and then go onto Venice. The first leg of the trip, I did some
updating of expenses and diary and slept. It was coming into the rest
stop that everyone slept through the wake up song and only woke up as
we were pulling in. Halfway into the trip and we are all exhausted.
At the first stop just had a coffee and a bit of cake. The second leg
of the trip I just did some ...
... visiting different sites on the weekend - she's gone back to Milan now. I only need the hostel to sleep, shower and use the bathroom , though it's a pretty long way to go when you're near Piazza San Marco and don't have the exact change required to use the W.C.
There, I've managed to load some photos, but that's all for now. Time to follow the crowds back to the Rialto, 3 more days to lose myself in Venice.
Hope all is well.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Becher Venice
Treated like Royalty
My daugher Jenny and I couldn't have been treated better. The concierge's were so helpful, always taking their time to explain directions. Whether it was shopping or sightseeing they would bring out a map and all their advice made our holiday so much easier. Our room was lovely, overlooking the canal and at night we would fall asleep with the sounds of gondolas floating by under the window. We were central to everything and it was a quick and easy ( and beautiful) walk to wherever we wanted to go. I can't imagine why anyone would stay on the mainland. I will miss the great breakfast that helped me start my day and the greetings and smiles whenever we passed the front desk. I am already planning a return trip next year and I would never stay anywhere else. Thank you so much for everything that made our trip so special. Ann
Lovely hotel in the centre of Venice
This hotel is ideally situated for the main attractions of Venice. It is small, spotless and very quiet. The staff are exceptionally pleasant and keen to help in any way they can. Venice is a beautiful city and this hotel was excellent for our first trip. I would certainly recommend it without reservation.
We have just returned from a wonderful 3 night midweek break in Venice. The hotel has only recently opened and is beautifully decorated and furnished. Our room was small and spotlessly clean with large en-suite wetroom. Paolo and Anna, the owners, were extremely friendly and helpful as were the other members of staff we met. The breakfast room on the ground floor (there is one on each floor) was rather small but the same can't be said for the breakfast! There were cereals, yogurts, fruit, croissants, rolls, cheese and cold meats, and lashings of delicious italian coffee of course! The hotel is very conveniently located, about 3 minutes walk from St Marks square and I would recommend it highly to anyone. Take lots of money if you want to indulge yourself on a holiday in Venice. The shops are opulent and outlandish. It can be done on a budget as long as you don't want to buy anything. We walked (a lot!) and hunted out the less expensive restaurants. If like us you can't afford to hire a gondola you can cross the grand canal on one for 50c near the Rialto.
Great Little Hotel
My husband, myself and our Dutch friends stayed at the Hotel Becher for 5 days. The hotel is in a great location, a short stroll from Piazza San Marco - in fact we walked all over Venice. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room overlooking the canal was lovely, as was the spacious bathroom. The hotel was very clean. The breakfast was adequate, although the room in which breakfast was served was small. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a short stay in Venice.
Großartiges kleines Hotel
Mein Mann, ich und unsere holländischen Freunde verbrachten 5 Tage im Hotel Becher. Das hotel ist perfekt gelegen, nur einen kurzen Spaziergang vom Markusplatz entfernt - tatsächlich sind wir überall in Venedig hingelaufen. Das rezeptionsperssonal war freundlich und hilfsbereit. Unser Zimmer mit Blick auf den kanal war richtig schön, wie auch das Bad, in dem es jede Menge Platz gab. Das Hotel war sehr sauber. Das Frühstück war in Ordnung, wenn auch das Frühstückszimmer etwas klein war. Ich kann dieses Hotel durch und durch für einen Kurzurlaub in Venedig empfehlen.
A hidden jewel in the heart of Venice
This Hotel is really beautiful inside. It is right in the heart of Venice, with St Marc's Square about 3 minutes away on foot (allowing for shoppers) and the Accademia bridge and the Rialto bridge each about 10 minutes away (in different directions). Our room was small but beautifully appointed and the public rooms were a symphony of marble. The hotel has it's own landing for Gondolas and Water Taxis. The owners are very welcoming and speak excellent german and very good english (as well as Italian, obviously). All in all, it was a pleasure to stay with them. We'd definitely go again.
A TREASURE IN THE HEARTH OF VENICE
The Hotel Becher is a real treasure in the hearth of Venice. It is just facing the Fenice Theatre and about 5 minutes walking form St Markus Place. The hospitality given is excellent, the room are gorgous with venetian style forniture, and also breakfast was very good. Can just suggest to go over to this hotel, it will be a real surprise for the money !
Venedig und das Hotel Becher sehen und wiederkommen
Etwas Besonderes zu unserem 30. Hochzeitstag das war Venedig und das Hotel Becher.
Hier stimmte alles.
Die Leitung des Hotels ist unaufdringlich freundlich, sehr kompetent und geht ganz inviduell auf die Wünsche der Gäste ein. Wir fühlen uns herzlich Willkommen und umsorgt. Da es ein kleines aber feines Hotel ist, ist der Gast kein anonymes Wesen. Selbst das Frühstück war prima, so in bella Italia nicht erwartet.
Wir können nur herzlich Dank sagen für den schönen Aufenthalt.
Irgendwann kehren wir dort wieder ein und wünschen dem Hotel und allen dort Beschäftigten alles Gute.
Auf ein Wiedersehen
Gisela und Günther Patzelt
Whatever you do, don't pass up this hotel!!
Anna and Paolo Volcan are the ultimate hosts of this small (17 room) charming hotel sitting on one of the side canals used by the gondoliers and steps from the Fenice Theater.
It was wonderful to come back to our spacious room overlooking the canal after a long day of walking the calles of Venice and to be serenaded by the music and voices of the gondoliers floating below us.
Anna and Paolo were extremely helpful in making arrangements for us to hear a local string quartet's concert of Vivaldi, for our free trip to the island of Murano and with the use of their only iron.
Breakfast was in a lovely dining room set with white linen and lit by a Murano glass chandelier. Cappucino was excellent as was the service provided by the Volcan's charming staff.
Perfect location for a second, third or first honeymoon, which is what our trip turned out to be while staying here.
Ottimo hotel a due passi da san marco
Siamo stati 3 giorni presso questo ,hotel molto carino, siamo arrivati con il motoscafo ed attraccato sul loro pontile privato , era tutto un via vai di gondole , la camera era molto bella pulita e nuova perche mi dicevano che hanno aperto da poco , il servizio alla reception e ottimo, l hotel si trova a poca distanza da san marco .Consiglio vivamente questo hotel di 3 stelle che secondo noi puo essere tranquillamente paragonato ad un 4 stelle
