So it was finally our time to visit the legendary travel destination of Venice. With increasing excitement we journeyed from Florence through Tuscany and finally over the long bridge to this island city. I usually try not to have 'great expectations' about big name travel destinations because I've often been disappointed by them; fortunately this …

Its Saturday morning. We sleep too late and miss our free breakfast. Bummer. And must check out of the Hotel Bains.. But its off to the mainland once again to find our next bed for the night. The Fontana Hotel- originally built in the 18th century and restored in 1984 overlooks campo San Zacarria- smack in the middle of the Venetian canals. Due to …

Venice: Overcrowded, overpriced, overrated!

... the FREE & civilised exhibitions. Civilised in as much as there were no crowds, no queuing & no admission fee. As a bonus the exhibitions were really interesting. The first was "Napoleone Martinuzzi Venini 1925 - 1931. This was a glass display with all the artists original drawings on show. The other was an exhibition by Marc Quinn, an incredibly talented, young artist who works with marble, bronze, concrete and oils. His paintings & sculptures were amazing & ...

... to be in an air conditioned room is amazing, and a first for our lodgings on this trip. All of the "normal" amenities feel like pure luxury. Our own bathroom, mirrors long enough to see my hair in, the refrigerator... all these things are simply wonderful. Besides that, the feeling of familiarity and the use of English are refreshing. After locking our bags together in storage areas, and constantly being mindful of the possibility of ...

    We chose hotel Fontana for its great location, a short walk from San Marco square. It's easily accessible to the attractions in Venice and easily reached from San Zacharia vaporetto stop. Hotel Fontana is a family run business and the atmosphere is very homely. When we arrived in the hotel, we were immediately given the room keys and all the necessary information. Breakfast is great, with some salami and prosciutto, and I love the chocolate croissant. We talked several times with Gabriele and his dad Claudio and they were very nice and welcoming people. Claudio was working at the breakfast on our first day and it was so entertaining to see him work. I believe he is a perfectionist, looking at the way he made sure all the food is always replenished and breakfast station clean. Our room is on the first floor on the garden side, clean and spacious with a small sitting bathtub which I find it very amusing, I have never seen this kind of sitting tub before and I really enjoyed it. I would definitely reccommend Hotel Fontana for its location and hospitality.
