Hotel surrounded by garden. Friendly staff, cute outdoor seating, nice restaurant on premise. Tiramisu was good but a little soggy, food was good but a little too salty. Breakfast was good and was upgraded to nicer room on request.

Unfortunately there were construction works taking place (this appears to be a recurrent theme - this happened in Washington D.C. too), but that only fractionally took away from the majesty of the building. Interestingly, the four horses on the top of the Basilica were actually looted by Napoleon, who then had them used in the design for the Arc de Triomphe - but they were returned to Venice in 1815.
After taking some snaps and dodging the masses, ...

There was a little bar back in the alley so we got a beer and a Bellini (who knew my favourite drink was invented in Venice!) and sat there for a while ...
