We woke to the sound of raindrops again. The night before had been dramatic with lots of thunder, lightning and rain. Looking down from our balcony, we could see the Vispa river raging through town below, even more swollen with water than when we’d arrived. No more views of the Matterhorn for us though…
... the horses is unknown. They were carbon dated to the created in the second century BC. They had been displayed in Constantinople (now Istanbul), and were taken to Venice by the Doge in 1204. When Napoleon conquered Venice he sent the horses to Paris in 1797. Napoleon's rule in Venice was short (maybe 10 years). Austria took control of Venice and in 1815 the horses were shipped back to Venice. Above the main entrance of the Basilica are replica's of the 4 horses for ...
... luck :-)There was a food festival on, so we wandered the stalls until we found a place we liked, then we watched the vendor prepare a foccaccia of porchetta (barbecued pork) with lettuce (that's what you get when you ask for salad!). Anyway, it tasted quite nice and was authentic local food. Afterwards, we wandered some more and tasted local olives, canoli and bread. In hindsight, we could have just eaten all the samples we were offered and not bought ...
... off the train and walked toward the station exit we saw this amazing postcard picture of a basilica surrounded by a turquoise water garden .... I mean, OMG, this was a whole new world for us Pomona people. This was Venice, the location of big Hollywood movies, movies like Moonraker and The Tourist and we were smack bang in the centre of it.
We bought a 3 day pass for the vapretto (water bus), found the right station ...
We enjoyed a coffee before heading back to our hotel. We decided to do our washing now and then venture out again later in the day for a further explore. Further exploring was definitely what we did. We walked and walked and walked until we realised we were lost, well not actually lost just not sure where we were!! We eventually found our way home, didn't buy anything but got a good look at many back streets or lane ways, not sure what you ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Campiello Venice
Great location, Nice Staff, Decent Breakfast
We had a nice 2 night stay here in mid-May. The room was the smallest we had in Europe this trip, but was plenty large enough with a sizeable king bed.
The hotel has a lift (contrary to the comments in some guide books) and free internet access in the lobby.
The bathroom was great with a very nice shower. All in all we were pleasantly surprised and would stay here again.
We spent 2 nights at Hotel Campiello in early May. Despite the rain and flooding I enjoyed Venice more than I expected....and Hotel Campiello was part of the reason. The location is excellent, tucked behind Piazza San Marco. The staff very friendly, helpful. Breakfast and bathroom are better than average. Also, they have a computer for guest internet use. The connection is a bit pokey, but it was a treat to have that convenience. We will definitely go back! Suzanne and Anthony
Wow---Look no further!!!
Hey, this place is great!!
Excellent value w/ a very nice atmosphere.
We asked if they offered a canal view (they do not) and when we get to our room (#210) it is overlooking a nice little plazza and on the other side we see gondolas drifting by!!!
Excellent room, breakfast, elevator, ambiance, all offered with an extremely helpful staff.
We will return!!
Warning: Another hotel is using the same name but is 7 miles away!!!

We found this hotel in our Frommer's guide book, and were very pleased with our 3 night stay in August 2003. The location was perfect! Just a few steps from the canal and right off the Piazza San Marco - yet off a quiet side street. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was more than we expected. We first checked in to a room just outside and right next door to the hotel, but moved the following day because it was very noisy with the restaurant and street vendors coming and going so early in the morning just outside our door. The room was small but clean, and were glad to have the air conditioning. I would defintly recommend this hotel!!
Campiello, ideally located
Moderately priced, beautifully decorated, yet close to Piazza San Marco and only a few steps from the Grand Canal--a huge advantage in hauling one's luggage. Especially check out the charming "suite" on third floor with private little "deck" on roof top.
For the price, this pensione is a deal. Excellent location. The rooms were nothing to write home about, but the bathrooms were nice and clean, the hotel has a lift and the staff were always willing to help.
Free internet access and the breakfast was the best of all three hotels I stayed while in Italy. The water transportation stop is very convenient as it is the airport stop.
The Hotel Campiello was the best hotel we stayed at during our trip to Italy in June, 2003. The hotel was perfectly located near prime tourist attractions, yet situated on a quiet side street for restful nights.
The rooms and bath were as small as any other similarly priced European hotel, but the decor made up for it with nice color schemes and furnishings. I would certainly recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to Venice.
It was wonderful
This place was a joy - reasonable by Venice's standards - They offer a good discount for cash, too. The free breakfast was excellent, they offer free Internet access in the lobby, the location is terrific and the service is wonderful, too.
We highly recommend this hotel. Only one word of caution - no elevators.
Warm, inviting, very clean
The Bianchini sisters and their family run this excellently located hotel like everyone is sure to fall in love with Venice and of course, return again! (as I have 5 times). The breakfast is delicious, the rooms very nicely furnished, and the proximity to the San Zaccaria vaporetto stop unbeatable. 5 minute walk to the Piazza San Marco
We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Campiello. It's located on a very small, quiet street near St. Marks Square, and it is very easy to get to by vaporetto. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was small but clean and nice. The breakfast was good. We would highly recommend this hotel for it's good location, reasonable price, and comfortable accomodations.
