... down and making sure we had all our belongings we headed straight for the ticket office to get a “water bus” travelcard for the day.
We arrived fairly early, so Venice wasn’t busy. It was nice wandering through the narrow back alleys and along the smaller canals, watching locals leave for work and shopkeepers opening up shop for another day of trade. Without following a map we stumbled upon Rialto ...
... stars coming out for the night, we hired a gondolier to take us for a ride through the small canals of Venice. As we floated along through small quiet canals, inches away from buildings, the gondolier having to duck to cross beneath several of the low bridges, it felt like a scene out of a movie. We kept having to tell ourselves that it was real. Back at St. Mark's square afterwards, we enjoyed a glass of prosecco while listening to one of the orchestras to end our first evening in ...
... hours of our wandering was trying to get to the outside of venice so we could go home! We had a relaxing evening and an early night as we didn't sleep well on the train! The next morning we went to venice again and explored the upper part of the island! We had some Italian pizza, walked around, and just gazed at all the beauty going on around us! We made a full day of it and than came home again. We really appreciate hostels with kitchens ...
... excited to be in Venice and couldn't stop looking around us. Venice is such a fascinating city and it was so cool to be on the canals and see all the boats and gondolas! We walked a short distance from our ferry station to our hotel. Our hotel is on a small canal and is really nice. The lady who owns it speaks English really well and was so sweet. She gave us a map of Venice and recommended lots of things to see and do. ...
... Have to say that this is high on my list of gorgeous places, right up there with Prague!
Our last day we took another trip, except this time we went a little bit further to an island called Burano where the whole island has bright colour houses. If you look down the canal of one of the small streets , you get a beautiful reflection of the colourful houses lining it, its really stunning. We had lots of fun here with the camera, such a neat place to ...

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.
