Saturday was a travel day. We packed our bags, Miguel and Kelly stole some more food from the all you can eat breakfast and we checked out of our hotel. We arrived at the train station thanks to Miguel's guidance and went to Billa for a few supplies. Miguel and I laughed as we heard a radio commercial for "Kelly's Snips" but unfortunately Kelly …
... a cab with a young Canadian who also was fluent in Italian, so helpful to get to the rail station 2km away (more than I thought). We have a 4 hr wait to get the fast train to Venice so wandered around aimlessly in the rail / port inustrial area but not a lot on offer to see so returned for coffee and awaited the connection.
On time departure at 1229 with Trenitalia and pleased we have 1st class seats as we have plenty of ...
... the very unreliable wifi connection dropped out and they did not get saved. Hmmm - the perils of blogging I suppose? I then went to wake Katie up; she slept until 10am, so she had a very late breakfast.
I have enjoyed staying in this B&B as it is very spacious and the decor is lovely. The owners Antonio and Yonni are very pleasant, however, neither of them is very chatty and they don't talk to you at breakfast as others have done at other B&B's and I missed that. ...
... helps identify the different families who for generations have lived on the island. The men are fisherman hence the seafood lunch all of which was delicious and the women are known for their lace making and the shops are full of wonderful lace clothing and tablecloths.
Back to the hotel for a well earned rest. Time to pack again becuase tomorrow we are on the road again.
... I went to the office and bought the tickets for everyone and their luggage. We then headed back to the hotel for breakfast. Breakfast was a basket containing pastries, butter, spreads and coffee and fruit juice. It was very pleasant and was fine for us as we were about to board a cruise ship with unlimited food.
We packed our bags, checked out and headed for the Alilaguna Blu stop on the other side of St Mark's ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Centauro Hotel Venice
Good Budget hotel
Good hotel for the price. Helpful staff. In a great location (near the vaporetto stop side of the Rialton).
If your looking for location this is ideal. It is literally 5 min walk to St Marc's square and 2 mins to Rialto bridge thats if you take the shortcuts. Had a good view room. Service was good and breakfast was included. I would defintely recommend this hotel to anyone.
Excellent hotel newly refurbished. Good buffet breakfast. Only drawback would be if you are on top floor as there is no lift making it difficult for elderly or family with young children.
My husband and I absolutely loved our room at Hotel Centauro! We had a room on the third floor, with a fantastic view of a canal. We loved seeing the gondolas passing by. It was a great location in relation to St. Mark's Square, Rialto, and many other sites. The breakfast was great as well! Overall, we had a fantastic experience!!
A charming, friendly hotel, wonderfully located a short walk from Rialto vaporetto stop - helpful and friendly staff - outside room with canal views desirable - small but comfortable - charming dining room with buffet breakfasts - short walk to everywhere - ideally situated. Would definitely return here and would recommend it most highly for a moderately priced hotel - if you are looking for luxury class accommodation this hotel is not for you but if it is charm and typical Venetian atmosphere then you cannot go past Hotel Centauro.
