... exploring and of course doing safety drills. It was so big that we hardly saw any of it. I even think it's the biggest cruise ship I've ever been on. It was so funny at the safety drill as we all had to put on our life jackets and everyone looked really funny in them. It was then time for tea and we ate in the restaurant. The food was really nice and everyone enjoyed their meals. By the end of the day I was super tired so I went to ...
... which is exactly what we did. It was 3 times less expensive and we found one in no time at all! The ride was so peaceful that I think I may have fallen asleep, just for a second! We then did a little more shopping and wandering...this place is really quite a change from London and Paris. We really needed this laid back setting to break things up. Tomorrow, we head to Florence for what looks like a rainy few days...we're hoping the weather channel is ...
2nd day in Venice and I'm off to the museum. In this museum I learnt about the history of Venice. The history of Venice is really interesting and is really nice to hear about it, here is some of what Learnt - According to the tradition, Venice was founded in 421 AD on April 25th, Saint Mark’s day, who is the patron saint of ...

I noticed the horse statues on the balcony were from 1987, but found the original bronze pieces inside that dated back to 200 B.C. They were remarkable and were in such good condition for their age.
We walked the streets, eventually finding a restaurant called Karibu, with a very exuberant waiter called Richard. Joanna and I shared a lasagne, and the girls tried other various Italian favourites. At the end of ...
What can I say about Venice that hasn't been said before. It is still as beautiful as the picture you have in your mind.
Yes it's getting older and a little tired and worn out by tourists, but the local heart is still there in the off tourist map alleys and local restaurants.
I couldn't help but notice how much cheaper things were this time around. Given the current economic climate it is probably understandable, specially in leather goods.

Historical Traveler Reviews Ca' dei Conti Venice
Just returned from Venice - 11th April 2005. The Ca'Dei Conti is excellently located - literally a 4 minute walk to St Marks Sq. However, although centrally located it is very peaceful! We stayed in Room 105, which is on the ground floor (thankfully not a room that opens onto the breakfast room!). Very nice room, faux grande, very clean and quite a good size. The bathroom was very clean but we didn't have a bathtub, just a shower. The staff were VERY friendly and helpful too!
The breakfast wasn't great - I think this is my only criticism! Basically, you have bread rolls, croissants (with a really weird marmalade filling), some cheese and meats, cereals, yogurt and coffee or grapefruit or orange juice - not very inspired but perfectly acceptable.
The hotel is very easy to get to - a water bus from the airport costs 10€ and takes just over an hour to San Marco - it's about a 5 minute walk to the hotel from the water bus stop (but make sure you have a map!).
I think Venice is generally very expensive and we paid £150 per night for what was billed as 4 star but by UK standards would be a 3.5 star. I give it an above average rating as the staff were very friendly and the location superb!
Excellent! Unbelievable value!
My boyfriend and I stayed here in March 2005. I cannot describe how impressed I was with this hotel--I have never experienced a better value for the money! The rooms were not that expensive at all, and I felt like I was walking into a palace! This is by far the best place I have ever stayed in in Italy. The hotel itself and the rooms were beautiful (we were told we got one of the best rooms), the staff was extremely friendly, and it couldn't have been in a more convenient location--right behind San Marcos square. Even the breakfast was the best I had seen in Italy. The room was really big, the bathroom had a tub, and also a good hair dryer. Lots of very nice touches and detail all around. We didn't want to leave! It is situated on a cute little canal tucked away--very romantic, but hard to find!! If I ever go back to Venice, I will definitely stay here. Unlike some hotels in Rome that give your specific room away even when you book months ahead of time, this hotel must have reserved us one of the best--and kept it--when we booked 2 months ahead. Highly recommended.
A great place!
Since this was our first time to Venice and had experienced many small hotel rooms in Europe, we were unsure about what to expect in our hotel room booked throught Gate 1. Well, to our surprise we were more than happy with the size of our room (standard) and the service provided by the freindly staff. We were traveling with another couple and their room also had a plasma TV which surprised me. The only downside was a small shower stall in an otherwise large bathroom. The windows in our second floor room opened up over the canal and provided a quaint touch.
We would recommend this room to anyone in the mid-budget range. We received good rates off-season.
We moved there from their sister hotel, Santa Marina which had decided to send us to an annexe and up 5 flights of stairs. We were very impressed with the standards, staff and rooms at Ca' Dei Conti. Lots of marble, glass, and chandeliers. We paid £60 per night through (---) in Feb. 2005. Would certainly go there again...avoid the Santa Marina !!!!
Quiet, Good Location
Ca dei Conti is a small, quiet, centrally located hotel, within quick walking to St. Mark's Square. The rooms are nicely decorated, and the staff helpful. We stayed there Nov. 26-27, 2004.
Get what you pay for
First and foremost, Venice is small, and all Venetian hotels are correspondingly so. We had a room on the ground floor, but would have hated to stay in one that opened up immediately into the breakfast room.
The room was more than acceptable, the bathroom clean and the shower had plenty of pressure. Our windows were about 4 feet higher than the canal, but half of each was bricked up. Why? I'll never know! The hotel staff were very friendly, provided us with a map - which you'll need as Venice is a rabbit warren of a place to get around and spoke English which was a benefit as I don't speak a word of Italian.
Location of the hotel is fantastic - 3 minutes walk from San Marco, so getting the water bus from Marco Polo Airport is a very good option.
Would not go to Venice again, I just don't like the place, but would tell anyone I know that was going to look at this place. It's quaint and cute.
Firstly we were offered a tiny room with the door opening onto the breakfast room.
We declined and had to pay an extra 40 Euro's a night, but the 'suite' we got was very good. This seemed to be the norm for new guests arriving or they offer 'a better room' in their other hotel which is not as good. On our last night the room was broken into. We lost everything we had including the safe off the wall which was only attached by a thread to chipboard. We lost 9000 Euros worth of items and the owner won't even reply to my e-mails. I am sure the staff were in on it-do you want to stay there?
Room for four
Great little hotel ( most hotels are small in Venice) in a great location. We had a suite which was a sitting room that had a fold out couch ( the bed wasn't bad for a foldout ) and a seperate room for the kids that had 2 seperate twins. I was amazed by the size of the two rooms. The twins can be pushed together to make a single also. The two rooms were large and well furnished. The location is excellant and very close to San Marco Square. It is down a few narrow walkways but once you find it which is a chore anywhere in Venice it is easy to get back to. Good breakfast although sparce. A good buy in a country where the dollar isn't doing great, everything seemed very expensive.
Located on a quiet canal just a few steps away from San Marco. We were happily surprised by the beautiful room with marble bath. We were there in February for Carnaval and although the city was frantic, the Conti was a quiet oasis away from the crowds. The breakfast was very good and filling considering the moderate price of the room. We would definitely stay there again.
Fantastic Hotel and very centrally located
We were actually moved here from another hotel nearby because the original hotel was undergoing 'refurbishments'. Anyhow, it was a very good move because this hotel was lovely. The room (superior double) was huge with lovely Venitian tapestries and a canopied bed. There was a jacuzzi bath as well. There is a beautiful roof top terrace where you can eat breakfast and the staff were very friendly. I highly recommend this hotel (and I have stayed in many in Venice!)
