... speedy carts. Watched a lace and glass demonstration which is what Venice is famous for along with the water ways and gondola rides. I finished the biggest lunch I have ever had at a local restaurant Rossopomodoro, Calzonie is a new favourite. Caught a water taxi along the Venice water highway to get back to the bus. Venice is a city I could spend more time exploring, however next stop ...
... and a river every block, just as you’d expect. The grocery store (Billa) was unlike any of the others we’d been to this trip; it was huge! Just like a supermarket back home – complete with processed food and giant portions! We bought a few things to make dinners while we’re here, then headed back to the apartment.
We ate in tonight, then we spent the evening relaxing and playing card games. The apartment has ...
... cities, Venice has had its good and bad times. Until the 15th century, it was on the up, monopolising trade between the West and the East; in fact, it was the wealthiest city in the whole of Europe! Then it went downhill because that famous explorer, Vasco Di Gama went and found a sea route through to India, so now it was Portugal's day in the sunshine as they wrapped up all the trade deals between West and East. This spoilt everything for ...
... I was crying, and the American Airlines representative hung up on us!!!!!! She actually hung up!!!! By this point we had 30 minutes to go, mind you it is a 25 minute walk to get to the gate. Panic, anger, Frustration. The Iberia representative at this point really took control. She called someone who then called American, and 10 minutes later we had a written out ticket. As soon as that ticket was in my hand we ran so fast. Through out the run ...
... new ghetto. Later, as more Jews arrived, it expanded into the older part of the foundry and that area became known as the old ghetto, even though it was actually newer than the new ghetto. (As a note, still later a section was added and to differentiate it, it became known as the newest ghetto.) All this newest/new/old confused us (and other tourists).

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.
