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 …
... Again the people here are very friendly, in the main, and quite helpful. There are people everywhere looking at maps trying to discern the next bridge to cross, the next path to follow, and many seem happy to share suggestions on how to get, in our case, home – the Hotel Scandinavian.
We did get home and are quite tired after quite a long day, travelling from the west side of Italy to the east. Looking forward now to a good night’s sleep.
... we talked it over it all made sense as deliveries, service repairmen, individual boat owners, taxis and vaporettos were all sharing the canals going about the business of the day. Everything truly had to come and go by boat. We saw garbage boats, boats delivering sheets to the hotels and everything in between going up and down the canals.
... and shops....people everywhere all with cameras and maps all totally lost ....but you really can't go too far as the canals stop you and you just keep switching directions..streets are not all marked on map..all you need to do is follow the signs on the walls to either St Marc or Rialto... Fascinating city.
Our legs and feet were aching by nightfall, and although we had planned on staying late,exhaustion set in but had another day tomorrow to ...
Today were leaving France for the last time and heading to Italy! First stop, Venice! It's a really long drive so we're on the coach for most of the day. We finally get to our campsite resort & it is so hot! So we decide to dump our bags in our rooms, change into our bathers and go straight to the pool. We start with a few drinks - a cocktail called the 'Luca Special' which has literally nothing but alcohol in it. It was delicious! Sam and I again went drink for drink. ...

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.
