Damn, I love water. I have to admit, I'm actually kinda used to seeing marble statues and massive stone structures by now. You can't swing a drunk German without hitting at least one or two. The canals and waterways around Venice, however, bring me back to my days of sailing, something I miss dearly. Our hotel here is amazing. Very modern, yet …
... waiting for. An American woman, who was dining beside us started a conversation.
She was very interested to know where we had come from, what we thought of Venice and where we were off to next. She loved Venice and visits regularly. It was lovely to speak with someone who was travelled, and interested in our adventures, offering advice on places to see.
By now the fog had definitely set in amongst the streets of Venice, and as we ...
... glass blowing tour was interesting. We witnessed a man create a horse out of glass. It was brilliant. We can see why it takes a 10 year apprenticeship to become a glass blower. The foresight and anticipation was he worked with the glowing glass had our jaws hanging on the ground. Very impressive. The lace and linen tour wasn't as impressive, they were just trying to see us stuff. Then, the most impressive part of our Venice visit happened as we stepped inside a gondola ...
... out the window as we were flying over the Alps as we had a good view of the mountains. Upon arriving in Venice we were met by a driver who drove us to a water taxi that delivered us to a stop near the Rialto bridge where we walked a short distance to our hotel, the Hotel A La Commedia. The hotel is well located for walking around and is a nice small hotel. After dropping our bags we went for a walk around Venice and had ...
We are definitely in northern Italy, as the temperature this morning was in the teens (low 60s F). Although it was sunny when we woke up, by the time we exited the train station in Venice it had turned cloudy.

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.
