... already in the high twenties with clear blue skies and sunny so it was time for a "Spreezy" or Veneziano Spritz to quench their thirst. Battery Boy also agreed it was an opportune time to stop for refreshments when he heard Video Girl yelling from across the other side of the piazza, "Look, a cake shop!" This drink originated in Venice in the 1800's and consists of Prosecco or any sparkling wine, Aperol, a splash of soda water and garnished with an ...

... price for gondolas if you are interested is 80 euros per gondola, I think they take up to 4 person though I have seen one with 5. Most people on the gondolas are couples anyway. However, on one occasion, we saw a big line of gondolas in the small canal filled with big tour group and several other individual couples. It was like a traffic jam in the cities, one behind the other. There was at least 15 of them. This was not my kind of romantic for sure. A good time to take ...

... beer! It is like I am in some kind of dream, I cannot even comprehend this whole experience, I am in utter awe of everything around me and cannot contain the giddy excitement. Tonight as I try to create my German Language cheat sheet I ponder the thought of possibly extending my travel for another month or so. My new plan??? Well, travel everywhere I can and work or live in as many countries while I am still ...

... and the weather was bloody fantastic. 29 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.

Not being able to believe our luck at how absolutely perfect the day was we immediately broke our original decision not to spend the money on a Gondola ride and instead see the Grand Canal by Vaporetta (Venetian ferries at about one tenth the cost). Within an hour of ...

... and understanding. They are not arrogant, as are the French, but helpful beyond measure.

Just a note on what to select from the breakfast buffet; the beef is delicately cut in thin strips with the perfect amount of lean to fat ratio, however, unless you are accustomed to the naturally slightly acrid flavor of aged beef I would recommend avoiding it. The bread is typically Italian...all tasteless crust with very little soft center. Avoid the attractive ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Foscari Palace Venice

    Lovely stay

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Foscari Palace from 9-17 November, and would heartily recommend it to anyone looking for comfortable accommodation in Venice. The location, midway along the Grand Canal and therefore in the heart of Venice, is perfect. The hotel is beautifully appointed, and we were delighted with our room, especially the huge bed and the large, wall-mounted TV. The bathroom was large, lovely and warm, and the bath and shower were fantastic. The breakfast was first class, served in a very pleasant dining room. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the service excellent. We will definitely be back!!

    This really is a palace!!!

    from

    We just got back from a wonderful week in magical Venice. It really is a dream! No cars, no stress. Very nice people and the best food. We found the absolutle best kept secret in hotels. It is the Foscari Palace hotel on Campo santa sofia. It is a 4 star hotel but it should be a 5 or a 10 if there was such a thing. It is a newly renovated actual palace with large clean beautifully decorated rooms and beautiful bathrooms. You arrive at the door by water taxi. The whole building is gorgeous, very light and airy with a large lounge area, beautiful small well stocked bar and if you explore you can find a lovely patio on the roof. The staff was all very friendly and helpful and spoke beautiful english. You really had the feeling they were there to tend to your every need. In off season our room was just over $100 a night. any place else you may have spent $300+ for an equal room. This includes a great breakfast buffet every morning with everything from pastries, yogurt to fresh fruit and pancakes and bacon. The hotel is not right in the touristy part of town but a very pleasant residential part and about 5 minutes to the center of everything. There are gondolas right outside the door. also the very best restaurants everywhere. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic fairytale place to stay.

    Does not honour bookings

    from

    Do not trust the reservation service of this hotel because it could ruin your stay in Venice. I made a reservation for 5 and 6 November through Venere for Foscari Palace Hotel. On arrival the hotel reception claimed that a reservation had not been made although they were shown a copy confirmation email issued by themselves. After various consultations we were allocated a room for the of 5 November but told that we had to leave the next day. Another hotel was found for the following night by the Foscari management, but of a far lower standard and much further out from the main centre. We felt very disappointed in the way we were treated

    Wonderful hotel

    from

    My family and I stayed at the Foscari Palace Hotel from October 8th to the 11th. We asked for the suite with a view and got a two room suite that faced the canal and the Rialto Market. The room was fantastic with a front room living-dining area with large windows and a flat panel tv. My teenage kids had there own room which combined with ours to make a three room suite. The staff, breakfast and atmosphere were superb. They had a free happy hour on Saturday night and gave us goodie boxes at check out. We will definitely stay here again if they can stay so affordable.

    Fantastic stay

    from

    4 of us stayed from the 5th to the 8th October 2004, having found the hotel on Expedia. What a find! Friendly and helpful staff (except for a rather officious temporary manager), fantastic rooms with modern flat screen TVs (if you need them in Venice). Our room was large and in fact the bathroom was designed for a disabled person, which shows great foresight for a modern hotel. Our friends' room was smaller but still extremely comfortable with a great bathroom.

    A really great breakfast with fanastically fresh fruit. The hotel is in a great position on the opposite side of The Grand Canal to the fish market and very close to the Ca' D'Oro Vaporetto stop and the Ca D'Oro is almost next door.

    The hotel staff recomended some really good restaurants nearby.

    Unforgettable, for all the RIGHT reasons

    from

    Where do I start. This hotel is an absolute gem, the rooms (we stayed in a superior) are fantastic the quality is exceptional. Every detail taken care of.

    Fantastic Foscari Palace

    from

    The Foscari Palace opened in June 2004, and I was lucky enough to stay there for 5 days in July. The first reason you should stay in this hotel is the location. Its is right on the Grand Canal (some of the rooms overlook the canal), right opposite the Rialto market (fresh fish, fruit and vegetable every day - a real slice of Venetian life), and less than 10 minutes walk from the famous Rialto Bridge. Transport-wise, the Ca D'Oro vaporetto stop is less than 2 mins away, and the traghetto (a gondola 'taxi' that takes you across the Grand Canal) is right outside the hotel lobby.
