... the local train back.
While in Monterosso we thought, "Great, when we return to Milan we can get the regional train back, because it obviously stops at Monterosso." Now that would be an assumption to say the least. Perhaps a reasonable assumption, but still an assumption. So what would any seasoned and well-travelled person do? Check that the assumption is correct, of course. Now here in lies the problem. Whom you check with can make the world ...
... the familiar corner where we had departed from and the ride was over. Before we went for the gondola ride we went to see two traditional Venetian demonstrations. The first was a lace demonstration. Lace making is a dying art, with only a handful of lacemakers in the profession today compared to thousands a century ago. It was very informative. The lady showed us how they use layers of butchers paper to draw and then stitch the outline, then fill ...
Both cities are Italian landmarks and I have now visited both of them. Verona was old time cute and pretty - went to Juliet's balcony and saw the statue - touched it for luck! It had a small square where merchants sold Venetian glass which was very pretty. Glad I went! It's definitely one of those story book places, and we managed to navigate on our own since Jenny wasn't done with her exams yet. The next city (the day after) was Venice ...
... putting down their beautiful art, once you've seen one shop, you've seen the lot. Katie Brown glass is a class above a lot of this - amazing! But this is definitely more catered to the tourist. Some of it undoubtedly beautiful, but they're mainly the larger pieces you'd never be able to get home. Years ago Tiff (and Daniel Rawson), bought back the most beautiful piece of sculptured glass I still have at home. It's very quiet today in ...
... one; it's a feeling you get when someone is genuinely taking an interest in your needs and wants. Every restaurant should strive to provide excellent hospitality, while also providing effective service. I find that fine dining restaurants tend to put more emphasis on the details of service, making it come across as disingenuous. You see, the problem with stiff and stuffy service is that it feels like a robot is serving you. The server doesn't really engage with you too ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Sant'Andrea Venice
After searching for what felt like forever, and was probably 30-45 minutes, we finally found the hotel. Make sure you get directions from the hotel before getting to Venice. That said, our room was quite lovely, possibly the nicest of the 6 we stayed in during our visit to italy. The bathroom and shower were good-sized and very clean. We were a bit disappointed at first with the location. It is quite far from the St. Mark's area and near the train and bus stations. If that is not important to you, than this is definitely the place to stay. It was very reasonably priced and the folks at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. Because it was at the start of the vaporetto stops, it was quite easy to hop on and get a good seat to the center of the city. And, the walk to and from the St. Mark's area was always an adventure and great for walking off the day's meal!
Having stayed in other hotels further down the Grand Canal and found them overpriced and over rated, this hotel could not be bettered for value for money if you want a budget hotel.
Canal side hotel at a giveaway price
This is a great hotel and very convenient for transport. The people are friendly and speak English. It was very cheap - we went in March and I started to worry that it might be ghastly because of the price - but no. It's not flash but spotless.It was originally a monastery and overlooks a canal - what more could you want in Venice? I suppose people might think it's off the beaten track but it didn't take long to walk to the centre. Also it's near San Croce and San Polo - these are great areas. I was very grateful for the review that explained how to find it.....from the Piazzala Roma bus stop look for the multi storey car park,walk towards it until you see an information kiosk - walk part this until you hit the canal - turn right and the hotel is a few yards along.
Stayed at the Casa Sant' Andrea from 16 - 20 March 2006 and had a fantastic time in Venice. Hotel is in an excellent location near the Piazzale Roma which is the main bus station for Venice and also a main hub for the waterbus system.
The Casa Sant'Andrea is a great place to stay if you don't want to splash out too much on a trip to Venice. It is unbelieveably cheap compared to other Venice hotels, yet the standard of the hotel does not dissapoint. I have no bad words to say about this hotel, it was clean, the staff were helpful, the location is good especially if you are getting the coach from the airport to Venice, and rooms are spacious, our bathroom was immaculate, spacious and had all modern fixtures, clean towels everyday and toiletries, we even had a view over the canal from both bedroom and bathroom windows!
We stayed in this hotel during the 2006 carnival.
Schönes Haus das sanft restauriert wurde, wenige Gehminuten vom Bahnhof.
Ruhige sehr grosse Zimmer, Badezimmer mit Bidet, Schlafzimmer mit Tel, ohne TV und Minibar. Sehr freundlicher Service.
Grosszugiges Frühstück. Ausgezeichnetes Preis/Leisungsverhältniss. Kann nichts negatives über das Haus sagen. Abosolut Empfehlenswert!

The Casa Sant' Andrea is a fabulous choice for anyone who wants to spend some time in Venice and doesn't want to be ripped off for the pleasure.
My sister & I stayed at the Casa Sant' Andrea for 2 nights in early August. We got great rates through the Easyjet website. It's a former 16th century monastery that has been renovated. The location is great - just a few minutes walk from the bus station (from which we arrived from the airport) & from the main boat stop. The hotel fronts a smaller canal just off the Grand Canal. The rooms are modern & clean and the bathroom quite large! No TV, fridge etc but if you're not planning to spend a lot of time in your hotel it's not a problem! The staff were extremely helpful, and there is cheap internet in the foyer. The breakfast is better than other hotels we stayed at in europe - crossaints, rusks, pastries, & crackers with various toppings, juice & a coffee. Loved it, would definitely stay here again!
An enjoyable stay at the Casa Sant' Andrea
My mother and I stayed at the Casa Sant' Andrea from May 31 to June 6, 2003. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My mother walks with a cane and the staff let us use the service elevator to get up to our room on the third floor. There is no regular elevator for passengers. It was a fairly quiet neighborhood with a nearby church and very close to the major terminal for the water buses.
