... stop for a snack, wander around more shops and take more pictures, eat an amazing dinner, and get a little lost. It was such a great day! Venice is the perfect place for Mike's "squirrel!" moments, so we found lots of cool stores and alleyways.
The restaurant we went to for dinner was in an old Merchant Bank right on the Grand Canal near the Rialto Bridge. It was a tour book recommendation (Mom, you’d be proud – did you see how ...
... on board before we left. We joined the queues of people waiting to get on the numerous shuttle buses. There were two other cruise ships in port so Dubrovnik was inundated with tourists from about 8.30am. We were taken to the old city and were able to buy tickets to walk along the city wall. It has the same feel about it as Siena and San Gimignano and was fascinating to see. There is still evidence of the war with partially demolished buildings scattered throughout ...
... it was only because I overheard someone else's conversation I realised I was headed the wrong way. Providence! I was briefly worried when I realised I'd have to lift my luggage onto a boat somehow. It evaporated quickly when I saw how closely they park the boat to the docks. I only needed to roll it on. Phew!
The B&B I'm staying at is the same one my friends, Jo & Kat, stayed at in when they were here in February. I had been amply warned that it is tricky to ...
Weather: fine & sunny Up at 5.20 am, packed and ready for transfer to Airport in BMW Wagon to catch flight to Venice. Flight delayed on runway by 45 minutes due to excess air traffic, and to make matters worse, an elderly gent took ill during the flight and we had to make an emergency landing at Erbil International Airport in The Kurdistan Region of Iraq! Finally landed at Marco Polo ...
Well I tried to give it a chance but I am truly not a fan of Venice. It started with the earthquake that woke me up at 3 am this morning, I thought I was dreaming but no, I read I the news this morning it was a 5.9 magnitude earthquake and killed 4 people. I've never experienced one before so it was pretty weird I didn't really know what to do since I am staying in a "tent" ( it has a floor and bunk beds not really a tent at ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dona Palace Venice
Hotel Dona Palace promised us a great room and view and they delivered. This hotel is in a great location and offers a view of the Bridge of Sighs from certain rooms. The amenities are top of the line and the staff was super friendly. The hotel also offers a 20% discount at 4 different resturaunts, which saved us 20 or more euros at meal time. I would only reccommend one of the resturaunts, however : Grotta Pizza (outside take a right and it's in front of you on the left). The have more than just pizza and was the only resturaunt that had locals eating inside, which is a good sign. The food was good at Grotta - the other three were, in my opinion, terrible and tourist traps.
Wonderful hotel- friendly people, perfect location, great breakfast. The room was beautiful, spacious, and very clean with modern ammenities (flast screen TV, etc). I would highly recomend this hotel.
A bit difficult to find through the madness of the piazza San Marco. If you have to stay in the area and are lookiong for 3 star accommodations, this is a great place.
We wouldn't have found this hotel very easily if we hadn't spotted the sign sticking out perpendicular to the building. It's down a little street just off St Marks Square, so it is as central as you can be in Venice. Our room was spacious, with marvellous air-con and we had a balcony over looking the gondolas. The main showerhead in the bathroom didn't have any water pressure so we used the the shower attached to the bath taps. Breakfast is served in a Beautiful Room - but I must say I was really put off when I saw flies crawling all over the fruit (why wasn't it covered?) Also another thing that put me off was we had paid for Room incl Breakfast and on the tables there were cards showing the charge for the juices and cooked breakfasts. €4 for an orange juice! To end on a positive note, they were friendly and the place was convenient, clean and a bit of a treat for our one night in Venice.
This hotel is a real gem. The room and the bathroom was spacious and very stylish. Breakfast was excellent (worth 20 euro ea.) and the location was as good as it gets. Staff were friendly and helpful. I will stay here for sure next time around.
Great place, great value
Beautiful large quiet room with high-speed Internet access. Great breakfast included in the reasonable rate. VERY close to everything. Wonderful staff. We'd go back again anytime.
