... meal! By this time it was time to reverse our original journey to the islands and return to the ship by our 5 pm deadline. Cruise lines really mean it when they say they will sail without you, and we didn't want to take any chances.
Our cruise ship has four specialty restaurants, and we had a 730 pm reservation at Red Ginger, the Asian restaurant. It's our favorite of the four, which also include a steak house, a French ...
... high end fashion stores such as Prada to the stores selling a myriad of Murano glass and Venetian masks. It all became a bit overwhelming really as it all begins to look the same and as the streets are quite small and filled with so many people it doesn't allow you much room to move. Also really expensive too - even in the bargain stores you are not really too sure of you are actually getting a bargain? We then headed back towards where we were staying ...
... it is quieter and not so full of tourists. While we are sitting near St. Mark’s square, we notice people being hoisted up on a crane and decide that they must be doing a promotional photo shoot for something.
We decide to head back to our room for a rest after we stop at a grocery store to pick up some souvenir coffee, and a few snacks. Suzanne takes a nap, while Mom reads. We head out again around 7 for some gelato and shopping before turning in for the night at ...
... the morning we did what every tourist that goes to Venice must do at some point: go to St. Mark's Square. It wasn't like anything I'd ever seen before. The ornate decorations and monuments where everywhere, and the facades of the buildings succeeded in their goals of being built to impress. The locals say Venice doesn't change much, and you can imagine they're as proud to show off their city now as ...
... A large unguarded glass sculpture in the main square highlights a slight difference in culture from Sydney.
Picked Albertos restaurant in one of the local haunts for our last dinner. Strictly local and fantastic seafood. Sardines, octopus, followed by pasta dishes of squid and shellfish. Together with some great wines and good service, one of the memorable dinners of the trip.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Concordia Venice
Great family room and private terrace!!!!!
We stayed in the family room with our two kids. What a great location with an incredible view of the Basillica. It has a private terrace with a nice table that seats 6 people with an unbelievable view of the Church. I highly recommend this hotel, especially if you are traveling with kids and ask for the family room with the private terrace!!
Great family room
We stayed at the Concordia in January of 2003. The location is super - right off St. Marks Square. We are 2 adults and 3 kids and they had the most amazing family room. It was a duplex, with a king bed and bathroom downstairs and an upstairs "attic" with 3 twin beds. The room also had a terrace that overlooked the bell tower on the square. We paid 320 Euros a night, which included breakfast for 5 and tax. I thought that was very reasonable, especially for Venice, which seems to be a very expensive city. I read the negative comments that other people wrote, but I felt that the breakfast was just fine and the people who worked there weren't pushy. I totally recommend this hotel to anyone - especially if you are traveling with kids!
A great place to stay.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Concordia. The rooms were beautiful and the location is ideal. The staff was very good, with the desk clerks being especially helpful. I would definitely stay there again.
Concordia wonderful hotel
I spent seven days at the Hotel Concordia. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful and considerate. I had been injured by a water taxi and the hotel staff went out of their way to be of service. The hotel is beautiful and it is located on Saint Mark's square. Very convient to all the sights.I highly recommend this hotel.
Just came back from 3 nights there. Excellent hotel. reasonible prices for venice. nothing was to much trouble for the staff. Proberbly the best location in Venice, would stay there again.
Concordia is a nice place
We stayed at the Concordia for our first night in Venice. I thought this was a fine hotel. I loved the decour in my room. The room was clean. The Concergie was friendly and knowledgable. No Internet. I'd stay here again.
Contrary to the previous two reviews, we did get a complimentary drink and 'nibblies'. Of course you are offered the 'free' trip to Murano glassworks and the walking tour of Venice. But you don't have to go, you can say no. As it was, we did go to Murano, watched some fabulous glass-blowing, were shown the showroom, but didn't buy anything. We also didn't take the walking tour as it was too expensive for us. And lets face it, Venice is easy to walk around. We did however, get them to organise a Gondola ride as it was the same price as others we had enquired about. Our room was lovely and even though it overlooked the back alley, was quiet as the windows were double-glazed. The location is great; near Piazza St Marco, St Mark's Basilica, the jetty etc etc. I've stayed in worse places for the same money.
I found this place on the Internet, last minute as we decided to go to Venice on a whim for 1 night while my wife and I were in Florence.
