... that they had started on.
Now this may not be the appropriate forum to discuss this incident and who was leading the way but all Battery Boy wants to say is look at Video Girl's navigational record. Battery Boy is convinced that it has something to do with a Southern Hemisphere girl being in the Northern Hemisphere. So from now on if Video Girl says to go right, Battery Boy turns left.
But it was impossible to get annoyed with ...
Venice Day 3 Well the girls have well and truly given up helping me write the blog. Normally we do it together with me typing on my iPhone (hence all the errors) but this hasn't happened since the marathon. I guess it is school holidays. Today we had another lazy morning then went out exploring again. We came across the ...
... The room was a mixed room, with a very strong male smell coming from it. I dropped off my gear and headed out to find something for dinner.
You could definitely feel the difference in the temperature from Italy. I ended up getting supplies from the supermarket for gourmet scrambled eggs. While I was cooking diner I chatted to two Aussie sisters who were travelling towards Italy. And then watched the sound of music in preparation for tomorrows ...
... until we found a nice little espresso bar where we stood at the bar and had a nice macchiato followed by some sampling of a local peach wine. We continued our intrepid exploring and besides almost getting lost a few times (thanks Ben for the GPS) we made our way to the main square, San Marco. Here we braved the line and entered into the cathedral of Saint Marc and viewed the magnificent art and architecture. Ben then to meet up with a couchsurfing connection on the south of the island, ...
... 26th November This morning we sampled the hotel's breakfast, which was great, followed by a trip back across the Rialto to Piazza San Marco, where we stopped into St Mark's cathedral, nearly 1000 years old, and took a good look inside. The domed interior was stunning, especially the detailed roof. We also had a look inside the cathedral museum which is displayed Byzantine artifacts brought back from Constantinople. In a short summary, why these items ended up in Venice is ...

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

this is an excellent hotel,the rooms are beautifully furnished and very clean.The people here are very friendly and will help you with anything you need.This little hotel definately made our stay in venice a very special one and we would definately recommend it .
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.
