... on metallist nina, mis pandi kaotatu asemele millalgi 1800 ja mille puudutamine peaks õnne tooma. Võibolla seepärast varastati tema pea hiljuti, aga politsei leidis selle õnneks üles.
Nüüd on ka Madonna dell'Orto kirik lahti, ka seal on maalid valdavalt Tintorettolt. Reprona on väljas Bellini madonna lapsega, mille originaal varastati 1993. aastal. Väikses kabelis on imettegev kuju.

... Vecchio alone; the city was ours. The famed Duomo shone bright in the early sun as we admired it before the onslaught of tourist groups, gypsies, souvenir touts and even nearby shopkeepers. By the time we returned home, the tourists were just waking up, and shopkeepers were rolling up the metal gates to expose their storefronts for another day of commerce. Streetsweepers scoured the roads, clearing away last night's refuse. We were some of the first to the ...
... the one we were on last year. Then it was time for dinner. As always, the wait staff treated my allergy with care and attention. The Head Waiter in our area, Francesco, seemed more thorough in his questions about what I could and couldn't have, and full of new ideas about how the staff would be able to accommodate my dietary needs. It turns out, he had five other people with lactose intolerance last week, so he is already in the swing of things. ...
... Venice. It is an amusement park of sorts full of tourists but once the crowds leave in the evening it is a beautiful place. We had some drama on arrival trying to find the Avis office as well as the hotel. Firstly the Avis office is on the right at the main parking lot and you need to park on the top floor but we only found this out after two of us hopped out the van and ran to the office to get the info. We then ran back to our bus ...

So we've been up the Bell tower, what's next? Hey why not the basilica? So that's where we went, there was a bit longer a wait, and we had to check our bags. But this Church showed you the majesty that is due to God. You hear these stories about how the Catholic church spent all this money on churches and such, but until you actually see it, you can't really understand ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Dona Palace Venice
Not cheap, but worth every penny...
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.
You won't be disappointed if you stay at Hotel Dona. We stayed in the jr suite and felt we got what we paid for (FOR VENICE).
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.
Three stars but large rooms
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.
the concierge was very helpful with everything. If you are taking a private water taxi from the train station, please try to arrange with the hotel. The guys on the waterfront will rip you off and not drop you off at the hotel's private landing and instead take you to the Piazza San Marco where you will encounter hordes of people that you cannot get by with your luggage.
Do not eat at the restaurants near the hotel or those recommended by the hotel we paid $70 for 3 plates of mediocre spaghetti with very poor service. I highly recommend La casina for dinner at the Westin Hotel. Wonderful service, spectacular food and great views...magical.
Perfect for a couple nights
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.
