Up at 3:40am for 4:00 taxi. Taxi to train station, plane to Venice. Brandi and I both felt like it was a 5 minute flight as we slept the entire hour of the flight. We had over 3 hour wait in the airport for other tour members to arrive. The drive to the water taxi was the scariest drive I have ever been on, even outdid Mexico. I have never ever …
... to him. It wasn't just a building or a church to him, it was so much more! He intended it to be a true place of worship. With areas for prayer and meditation. He designed it in a way, as to make those who enter the building want to relax, and just mediate on Gods wonders. Inspired by nature, God's creation, to inspire us to worship him, the ultimate creator! The tree like pillars, he designed to give the feel ...
... it would be even colder out on the water. Today we escaped the hub of Venice and took a cruise out to some of the lagoon islands. On Murano we watched a glass blowing demonstrating and marvelled at the beautiful and intricate glassware, on Burano we ate some delicious biscotti and warmed up with a hot chocolate while snapping away at the gorgeous quaint and photogenic pastel fisherman's cottages. Our last stop was Torcello - ...
Flight to NYC no biggie, hopped on AirBerlin & started grinning. Nice individual TV to watch movies, music videos, TV shows like Big Bang Theory. LONG 7 hours to Dusseldorf. Never been to Germany! Quick hop over to Venice & we have arrived! Caught a water taxi & so excited to see Candee & Beth waiting for us on the dock. Daniella's apt is very modern located in the Jewish Grotto. Big thumbs up except the wifi, as you can tell since we haven't posted ...
... and jewelry that Murano is so famous for. I can honestly say that the glasswork is awesome, but we couldn't find and souvenirs worth taking home within our budget. Time to get back to Venice.
It took much longer to get on a ferry or Vapareta this time, but we saved a lot of time walking back to Saint Marco's Square because things were beginning to seem familiar. Time to find a different ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel do Pozzi Venice
This is the one!
I was responsible for booking a hotel in Venice for my husband and myself, as well as 2 fellow travelers. It was a challenging assignment and after HOURS of reading and re-reading reviews, I decided upon Hotel do Pozzi. What an excellent selection. Location, location, location! It is a short walk to the beautiful Piazza San Marco. Our first trip to Venice was brief, but a pure delight. This small hotel was comfortable, cool, clean, quiet, friendly, cozy, and all I had hoped for. The courtyard, where breakfast was served, was an added bonus and the food was perfect to start off the day. We were here for only 36 hours the end of July 2004 but I plan to return and will once again, choose Hotel do Pozzi. STOP reading reviews, this is the one!
My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay here on July 21 and 22. The hotel is in a great location just a short walk from St. Mark's square. The room was very cute and clean, and the bathroom was small but spotlessly clean and appeared updated. The service was good and quite friendly and able to communicate to us in English. The air conditioning could have been stronger in our room, but it was not uncomfortable. We would definately stay here again.
Location, location, location (and charming, too.)
Hotel Do Pozzi is a charming place to stay and the location is excellent! We got off the vaporetto and it was close by on a upscale street by Campo Maria d. Giglio. Tod's, Bally, Gucci, Prada. Very central and safe. Close to San Marco.
Even though Calle Marzo is busy (and fashionable), Hotel Do Pozzi is down a little pathway off the street that leads to an open courtyard with tables where you can enjoy your breakfast. The staff were very nice and accommodating. Another posting said it was hard to find. Just keep your eyes open for a sign pointing out the hotel. We didn't miss it at all, but it is not directly on the street. The rooms were pleasant and clean. I definitely recommend it.
We just returned from Venice and stayed at the Hotel Do Pozzi based on the reviews from the site. My husband and I were completely pleased with everything the hotel had to offer. When we first arrived, the desk clerk said he was going to put us in the annex, which made my heart sink. The annex was a pleasant surprise! It is separated from the main hotel but has lovely big rooms with huge baths, including a jacuzzi tub. The location was perfect for being a first-time tourist to Venice. We were shocked at how easily we were able to navigate the city. We ate the included breakfast at the hotel each morning before we set out to explore the city and fell in love with Venice!
I had a single room on the courtyard side. Everything worked well (including a/cand laptop connection to the net) and you just had to remember, as anywhere in Venice, to close the window at night (or buy some mozzie spray!). It was my first full week in Venice, and I found this an ideal base and location for exploring, setting out each day after a pleasant breakfast in their private courtyard.
Well located hotel but many rooms undergoing refurbishment which may mean, as we found, you get a room where the air conditioning is not connected and possibly (again as we found) with drying plaster walls which stink. Lack of aircon makes for unpleasant overnight experience in hot weather - room temperatures get very high - opening windows to reduce temperature makes little difference and if it's because you have to clear the air it will let in a lot of city noise. This is not a hotel for light sleepers to gamble on. The hotel management are not sympathetic to these problems and despite advertising and confirming advance bookings as having air conditioning only give (grudgingly) nominal discounts.
This hotel must be one of the best kept secrets in Venice. There is a
Our favourite hotel
We visit Venice twice every year, and always stay at the do Pozzi: in fact, we book our next stay before we leave! The staff are friendly and very helpful, the hotel has a cosy, warm atmosphere and the rooms are well-equipped. The do Pozzi is in easy walking distance of St Mark's Square, the Rialto and the Accademia gallery. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!
We have stayed at the Do Pozzi and recommended it to friends. We have never been disapointed. The perfect location that can't be beat at any price. Not many view rooms but everything is clean and neat. Good service and a charming breakfast courtyard. Be ready for a three block walk from the vaporati stop and a turn down a hard to find alley , worth the search.
Only a couple of minutes walk to St Marks Square, this hotel was in the centre of all the action. The entrance of the hotel is down a small alley off a busy thoroughfare so it is a little hard to find unless you know what to look for.
