The staff is so friendly and helpful. The rooms are beautiful and the bathrooms are great. Such a nice change from sleeping in a smelly hostel.

... shell fish clinging to the walls of the buildings between the high tide and low tide levels. Normally the tide rises and falls about a metre twice per day.
After our tour we wandered and ended up at the Accademia vaperetto stop again so we took the number 1 Vaperetto to the Rialto Bridge. It was interesting to see this again but it is really a tourist trap. The best thing about the bridge is the view from the ...

The whole island seemed like a shop, and the masses of idiots really detracted or worsened every possible part of Venice. Even the piazza San Marco ...
