Video Girl and Battery Boy left the hotel with clear directions from the concierge to get to the vaporette station on the other side of Venice. They were heading to a lovely little restaurant called Venissa Ristorante Ostello for lunch, another little find by Video Girl. The concierge advised that it was a leisurely twenty minute walk from the …
In the morning Battery Boy's restful night's sleep ended when Video Girl nuzzled into his side and said, "Mmmm, you smell like wine." Battery Boy screamed then in a panicked state leapt from the bed and wedged himself in the corner of the bedroom, shielding himself with the curtains. "What's wrong?, she enquired. Battery Boy nervously replied, "You …
... to the other side of the city in order to locate St. Marks Square. It was Sunday morning so things were pretty calm and quiet. We stopped at a little cafe along the way and I had my first Italian hot chocolate. We watched elderly women in their fur coats and dogs dressed up in Santa costumes stroll on by. It was a pretty magical moment for me to be able to sit in a cafe in Venice with snow all around and just people watch. A weddings was occuring in a small ...
We arrived in Venice is good time as our driver Rambo was on 48 hours rest.
I had developed a cold over night and spent the entire time sleeping on the bus. This seemed to be the way to go as I felt so much better and my cold only lasted a day!
We stopped in Verona on the way. This is the home of Romeo and Juliet. A nice pleasant town but nothing too special. We visited Juliets balcony, went to the toilet and was back on the road.

Idyllic. A truly wonderful way to see Venice. Just steps to St Mark's Square. Great restaurants around the square.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal Venice
I was very pleased with my stay at The Monaco and Grand Canal Hotel.
Just literally foot-steps away from the water bus stop and St. Marks Square, the location was ideal. With it's pleasant staff (just about the nicest people we meet in Venice) and clean and newly renovated accodomations, i would stay there again in a heartbeat. The restuarant is pricey but worth it when you taste the food.
We have just returned today from a 3 night stay at this wonderful , if a bit pricey, hotel. The situation cannot be bettered with its own terrace overlooking the Grand Canal and St Marks Square a couple of minutes stroll away.The standard room we had was a little small but the facilities and the bathroom were excellent. A very friendly and helpful staff made this a hotel we would return to on a, hopefully, future Venice holiday. The hotel fully opened on 1st April 2004 after a large refit and the small amout of fresco work that is being completed does in not cause any problems what so ever.One tip, take the water bus from the airport to St Marks Square as it drops you a matter of 10 yards from the hotel and is far cheeper, at 10 euros each, than a water taxi at 80 euros. Save the water taxi for the return trip to the airport, that way you get longer to relax on the terrace!
My wife and I have just returned from a 7 night stay at this excellent (but expensive) hotel. The location is fantastic, a step from the waterbus stop from the airport and a short walk to St Mark's Square.
Wonderful Experience at Monaco Grand Hotel
We recently stayed at the Monaco Grand Hotel in Venice. Although the hotel was under construction, it was in it's very last stages. The staff could not have been more helpful. There was absolutely no noise from the contruction. The hotel's decor is modern, although the hotel's restaurant is wonerfully decorated in old world Italian fashion. We had dinner in the hotel restaurant one evening and could not have been more pleased. The restaurant staff was very attentive and the food was fantastic. The hotel is also located very close to the San Marco water taxi stop, which was very convienent. I would highly recommend the Monaco Grand Hotel.
I can agree that the hotel was nicely decorated and very modern. I agree that the location of the hotel is great. In the heart of the shopping district and literally steps away from Piazza San Marco and the Grand Canal.
December 24 2003 We stayed here on our honeymoon. It had just been remodeled and it was a fabulous hotel. The restaurant upstairs was great! If you eat there have any of their desserts!! The remodel was a very modern remod, and the location was superb, seconds off of the Piazza. Just steps from Harry's Bar. I was more than pleased with the service, location, and room. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
What a great hotel!
I stayed at the hotel for a week in july and it was absolutly perfect.
