Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Delle Palme Venice
We stayed here in Oktober. It was a nice adress being in Venice and at the same time in a quit place with a big garden. We had a big terrrace in our room. The room was very nice furnished, clean and new with a romantic, old style touch. Service was good and fríendly. A hotel I would always recommend my best freinds.
Beautiful Room, Friendly Service
This hotel used to be a mansion, we were at first discouraged by the "communal bathroom" option, it turns out to be a beautiful hotel, great room having separate bathroom in each room after renovation. The front desk person was very friendly. My friends & I wanted to get to the roof of the hotel. He overheard our wishes and gave us the key to go to the roof. He also gave a very good recommendation on an Italian restaurant ("Africa") nearby. But beware that this is located in Lido Beach (about 30-45 min to the Main islands by ferry). Ferry services to the main islands end before mid-night.
Very nice and good hotel
We have been in September 2002 for 3 days in this hotel. It has been wunderful days in venice and this hotel. It is really very romantic and not too expensive. The service was good. The rooms are new furnished in an old style.

We took off wandering, eventually finding a delightful little restaurant off a quiet lane, not far from the Rialto Bridge. Ostaria Ruga Rialto, for those who wish to dine there. Small, charming and delicious. I had spaghetti with clams, Tim had ...

Once we landed we had the biggest task ahead of us which was to find our hotel. Because Venice has so many canals it was like looking for a needle in a hay stack.
Our hotel was near San Marco square so we walked around for an hour trying to find it, but we just ...
... brought or smuggled St Mark's body back to Venice after he died in Egypt. They smuggled his body back out in amongst a shipment of pork. As the officials in Egypt were Muslim they didn't want anything to do with the pork and the body safely returned.
From the square we walked up one of the many alleys to a glass making display. The glass maker made a Ferrari Horse in less than one minute it was amazing. We also learnt how they made the coloured ...
