The second early morning train was even more exhausting than the first. The late night wandering around Florence surely didn't help our sleepiness. Amid cat naps I stole glances at the Tuscan countryside along the way. Rolling fields of yellow flowers made a fiery scene as the sun rose over the sleepy hills. The hilltops were spotted with centuries …
... in bar and then made our way the water taxi.
Our trip was about 20 minutes. It was great riding along the canal at night. The lights were on, we could see Christmas trees in people's homes, see gondolas parked alongside the water’s edge and catch glimpses of narrow canals heading off between the buildings. I wasn’t sure quite what to expect of Venice, but so far I liked it a lot. We were met at our stop Sant Angelo by the manager and he ...
... list. No cars allowed, go everywhere by boat, the people are kind, the quality of ingredients is amazing, it has a really low crime rate, great supermarkets and cute stores. We started the day off by visiting a gorgeous little shop called oysho. It's mostly pj wear and so cute. Then we went off and got my normal biscuit from the patisserie near our apartment. It's like a lightly spiced ...
... As we were about to go the bell struck four o'clock - very loudly. It was a lovely view of the islands as well as the maze that is in the grounds of the monastery beside but which is only open by a guided tour which are at very limited times which is a shame. We then went into the church which had some amazing carved wood panelling on the backs of the extensive choir stalls. Above the altar was a reflecting golden ball with saints holding it & Christ on top with the ...
... getting all our emails through, relaxing having a leisurely drink and having access to a toilet. All too soon it was time to catch the bus back to the ship. I tried to take a photo of the ship from the dock, but it is just too long for me to get it all in. It was very nice sailing away as the sun shone directly on the old town. It was another great day and exceeded my expectations. A quiet night is planned with an early dinner and a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Corte Contarina Venice
A great find
This is a great hotel with gorgeous decor. The rooms are spacious and airy. The proprietor couldn't have been more helpful and was genuinely friendly. It's about 10-15 minutes walk from the main attractions and close to the vaporetto stop Arsenale. We really enjoyed our stay here and will be returning.
wow!!! One of the most pleasant hotels I ever stayed in! When I arrived, there seemed to be a problem with the room because of the heavy rainfall. They transfered me to an appartment, just opposite the hotel, for the first night, where I could use all facilities: refrigerator, cooking equipment, ...
Very Pleasant trip
We recently had the pleasure of a 3 night stay at the Corte Contarina and we agree with your trip advisor this hotel is very under rated. From the extremely clean and well presented rooms to the very friendly and pleasant manor of the staff, it made our trip most enjoyable.
Friendly and good location
This was an ideally located hotel, not too far away from the main areas of the Rialto and San Marco, but away enough for some peace and quiet at the end of the day.(Get off at the Arsenale vaporetti stop from the Alilaguna boat from the airport. Over Two bridges and up the via Garibaldi.Take the passage to the left of the church and a left again.)
The hotel was great and really clean and comfortable. Good value for Venice,
The only drawback I can see is the steep stairs, although there is a stairlift if required.
The staff are really child friendly, and were great.
Hotel had everything we needed including hairdryer, minibar,safe and lovely but small bathrooms.
A home from home

Lovely hotel. First class hospitality.
My wife and 6 month old son stayed at this hotel for a few days in February 2003. It is very clean and the rooms are well decorated. The staff are friendly, and very helpful. This was much needed with a 6 month old baby! The breakfast is more than adequate to start the day and is typical of a continental breakfast in this part of the world. The hotel is situated of the Via Garibaldi and the boat stops and the St Marks Square are within easy walking distance. To find it; look for St Pietro Church on the Via Garibaldi and go down the alley at the left hand side and take the first alley to the left. I have no hesitation in recommending this little hotel and would stay there again. We had a very enjoyable stay there.
I stayed at this hotel with my family in September 2003. I had booked it on the internet at the last minute, when there was very little else avaialable - and we were very pleasantly surprised by the hotel when we got there. It is in a 'residential' area rather than a touristy area, and quite hard to find - but it is only about 10 minutes walk from major tourist areas, and there are some very good small local restaurants which are cheaper than the central areas. It is also very handy for some of the main boat stops (Arsenale, Zaccaria)
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this hotel. This is at least a 3 star hotel. It has been recently renovated (2003) and the new owner(Mauro) is there daily to assure things run smoothly. It is quiet and a little off the beaten path but easily accessible to the St.
