... We also visited the Juliette Balcony and took a side trip to Lake Garda. Then we headed to wonderful Venice. Three days in Venice before the cruise. What a magical city. Great seafood, gritty weather, beautiful apartment. I could live in Venice, if I could afford it. On the days it rains or there is a strong wind, they put out the raised walking platforms. I thinks I read that Venice is less than 2 meters above sea level, and sinking every ...
... in a random manner. It wasn't a problem, but when there are so many people around it makes it hard to get from one spot to another, despite the area being very wide
We paid our €6 for the campanile from inside the church and were a little disappointed that it was by lift only!! It was small up the top, under the bells, with three spots on each side to step up into for the view. As there weren't a lot of people it wasn't a problem and people were very ...
... one email through. We wander around town and into a market area where there are dozens of small shops. It is all very colourful and repetitious. About 2.30 we reach the area near the new fort where we can catch a bus back to the port. We find a nice restaurant called Fresco where they have free WiFi. We sit down and order a beer for me, because it's about the cheapest drink you can buy and a pistasio milk shake for Edie.It was great ...
... followed the coast from Venice heading towards Bologna. First part of the trip we had 50kms at sea level and occasionally below as we skirted the huge Lagoon of Venice. The it was one little town after another, never over 90kms but seeing so much of the countryside. We called into Ferrara as its listed as a must see and though the town is dominated by theis huge brick building that I will research and edit my blog to add, we ...
... dish to connect due to the amount of trees. The site really wasn't for us as it had lots of children, but it was a family
resort and they do it rather well with the numerous activities for the children whilst the parents either lounge around the pool, restaurants or bars.
We set up the awning, chairs and table just prior to a thunderstorm which lasted all through the night. Didn't I say he will put a curse on the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Colombina Venice
Toronto - Canada - loved the Colombina
July 19, 2004. Stayed here for two nights and loved the hotel. We thought the location was great because it was central enough not be on top of all the masses of tourists. Our room was a good size with a lovely bathroom with shower and bath. The staff were fabulous and exeptionaly helpful. Lovley breakfast room with fresh fruit and very nice breakfast.They aranged a water taxi (no charge) for us to visit a Murano glass factory - did not do the tour of the factory and felt a little under pressure to do so by the factory. We are pretty fussy and would stay here again.
We arrived to be shown one nice room and one room in the attic. The ceiling sloped so severely you could not even stand up in parts of the SMALL room. We asked for another room and we were told we could move both couples to a suite. The suite had 1 bath, 1 bedroom and a sofabed and was located in a building next to the hotel. This was not acceptable so we asked if one couple could stay in the suite at the room rate we had already paid until an acceptable room came availabe. They refused. We had to pay an additional $200 over the normal room rate for the suite for 1 night until another room came available even though the suite would have remained empty. The entire staff was beligerent and unhelpful. They overcharged us for a bar bill and mysteriously could not speak english when I requested the details. I would NEVER stay here again and would recommend that you do the same!
stayed here for 2 nights in march 2004. excellent location. short walk to st marks square, but it was in a quiet location and away from the masses of tourist. gorgeous view of the bridge of sighs. small rooms but very nicely appointed. staff was fantastic. friendly, helpful and professional. nice breakfast room and very good breakfast. a real gem. highly recommend the colombina
We stayed at this Hotel in August 2003. When we arrived they upgraded us to the large upstairs suite. Our room had 3 floors!! with a private balcony overlooking Venice. This place is perfect for couples, very romantic. The staff was excellent, one steward even personally escorted us to a near by resturaunt only frequented by locals. We will definalty stay there again!
The rudest staff ever
stayed here 3 nights at the beginning of jan .the room was nice but SMALL.the ceilings were cool.great view of the bridge of sighs and a few other small bridges.but the staff was horrible i asked for a map and he got mad .wouldnt let our friend come up to our room for a few minutes .served us warm becks?beers in the bar warm?turned th lights out on is in the lounge area the only person who was nice was the bellboy mario
WOW! The Columbina is breathtaking!
Our room had a wall of French doors with a breathtaking view of the water. The room was beautiful with a Venician chandelier over the bed.
The bathroom was five star with nice ammenities. The staff was very professional and recommended a wonderful little Italian restaurant for dinner. They suggested we go to the glass blowing factory. It was very interesting, but beware it is very expensive. Upon leaving you have a choice to take the public water taxi which is 3.50 euros or a private water taxi which picks you up at the hotel dock and takes you straight to the train station with no stops. However, it is 60.00 euros, but well worth it on your last day.
Love this Hotel!
We stayed here on our honeymoon in September 2003. We absolutely loved it! The rooms were so beautiful, although small. Our room was right on the canal which could be noisy if you didn't close the window coverings.I would recommend this hotel to everyone!
We stayed for 4 nights. We booked through Hotel Connect £414. We arrived late and the staff were superb. The room overlooked the canal and we could see the Bridge of Sighs. The breakfast was good and was served in the small dining room. The fittings in the room were wonderful. The bathroom was all marble and Murano glass. The bed was comfortable and the room was well sound proofed. We were less than 50 yards from St Marks but the bells did not bother us. Overall we thought this was a great place to stay especially since the restaurants around this area were not expensive and were good value for money. Quiet location and good service.
Rivers of Romance
Venice is a ancient, magical city. The maze of quaint shops and restaurants captures a traveler's imagination! The only problem that we encountered in Venice was the inability to resist going "around the next corner" to find something else new and wonderful! Luckily it is impossible to get really lost in the little corner of Italy. Hotel Columbina was magnificient with an amazing staff. Early mornings were the best time to mingle with the friendly locals and piazza pigeons! Would love to spend MUCH more time in the future.
