The hotel itself is well located, near both train station and water bus. Decor is lovely, but my room was quite small. Two people would have been tripping over themselves; as it was I was climbing over my luggage. It seems that the building might once have been two separate buildings that are now linked, so although they have an elevator, you still need to use some stairs. No porters or assistance with luggage, and several of the reception staff were abrupt to the point of rudeness. Included breakfast was ok, but not a huge selection.

... hotel not far from San Marco. Sasha was THRILLED to have a hot dog, Milla her usual pizza, and my mom a green salad. I was surprised that for one of the few times in my life, I wasn't interested in eating. It was just too hot. After lunch we meandered our way through the Piazza San Marco, the Dosoduro neighborhood, finally ending up near Santa Croce to cross the canal back to the station for our late afternoon train.

That's what we had... Unless you've been in Venice before (Lido island more specifically), ...
... plus the torture chamber (which Katie had been most interested in for some reason) plus Casanova's two prison cells. This was a really fascinating look at the political power and how it was wielded and how nasty things could get if you fell afoul of those in authority. The Venetians were absolutely obsessed with secrecy in the past and this was very evident throughout the tour. For example many of the people working there in 16th century Venice were never allowed ...
... are along the canal that divides the island into two, and one street leading up to Murano - Faro where you can catch a vaporetti to Burano. Even in Murano, you will come across glass objects not actually made in Murano, so if you're after something authentic from the region, make sure you verify the origins. Usually Murano will be stamped on the back. You can have lunch here or you'll have more choices on Burano. If you keep an eye out, you'll also see ...
... to the Salvador Dali museum, which was awesome. George and I are both big Dali fans, so it was nice to see some of his work in person. After that we had lunch, then went to go see Doge's palace. VERY impressive. Should you ever go to Venice: yes, it's more expensive than most museums. Yes, it is worth it.
Doge's Palace (the Ducal Palace) seems to satisfy many different tastes. First, you enter this extravagant ...
