... of Genoa. Sounded like a great way to spend a couple days getting back to nature after the busy cities, or an inspirational tampon commercial. Either way I was bringing my rain jacket.
Well, it was just as spectacular as we’d hoped – colourful, traditional, scenic, small, full to the nuts with Americans brandishing their Rick Steves guidebooks. He even alludes to this phenomenon in his book (yes, we’ve read it, he said shamefacedly). In fact, ...
... Pisut kõrgemale ronides avaneb pilvede vahelt ka mõningane vaade, kuid vihma sajab ja ronimine ei olnud tegelikult plaanis. Võtan kohvi ja sõidan Asolo suunas. Pilved on mähkinud ennast ümber mägede, siinsele kandile omased kitsad kõrged kuused turritavad välja. Dolomiidid tunduvad olevat täiesti käidav kant. Itaallased on ka võimelised radu tähistama, aga info radade kohta on peidetud ja/või ainult itaaliakeelne. ...
... the 1980s, Ambrogio created Cabreo, a unique combination of tradition and innovation including Cabreo Il Borgo (red), a blend of traditional Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon, while La Pietra is C******nay from Tuscany, fermented and aged in oak. These wines were among the first in a new group of top wines now widely known as “Super Tuscans.”
In 2000, Ambrogio and Giovanni left Ruffino to focus on small-lot, estate-grown wines, committing to ...
After a tour of Venice's back alleys and the help of a kind local, we managed to find our way to Fondamenta Nuove for the ferry ride to Burano; where the locals sat in the middle of the ferry reading the paper or gossiping and the tourists happily snapped pictures by the windows.
Burano itself is a lovely fishing village, also famous for its lace. The handmade lace put the prices up to 900 EUR for a shirt! The glass ...
... out in recognition of a plaza that he couldn’t possibly have been in before (never having been to Venice before). "I know this place! There’s… there’s a doorway into the Basilica just around that corner, and a back gate for the tower just hidden past that construction gate. I know this place, I did my best sniper-shooting from that balcony over there!" As it turns out, the makers of the stealth video game Assassin’s Creed are incredibly historically accurate.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Palazzo Abadessa Venice
We stayed at the Palazzo Abadessa in late March 2006. Assuming you arrive by boat from the airport, you pull up to the hotels back door, (which doesn't much resemble a hotel other then a small coat-of-arms flag) with a small porch. You pull the old fashion string and hear the bell ding, ding, ding. What a great start to our stay in Venice I must say.
We had the pleasure of staying our three nights in Venice at the wonderful Palazzo Abadessa. There is no way to possibly go over all the exquisite details of our stay at this lovely boutique palazzo. The owners, the Rossi couple, were absolutely the most congenial, inviting people we have ever had the fortune to come upon. Mr. Rossi walked us to a restaurant one night after asking for a recommendation..... one night after the opera, we came in late to find him ready to converse a little about veneto wine. He actually brought a bottle from his private stock to share with us...It was amazing to say the least. The breakfast is beautifully set up each morning. It along with the cappucinos was divine. Each night, we made sure we attended the little evening cocktail hour with the Rossi'. Marissa Rossi took a lot of time sharing with us all the impeccable details of this 15th century palace. We were also upgraded to a suite on our last night. Pictures attached are of the room. To say the least, it was an incredible experience. We will surely return to Venice and the Palazzo Abadessa!
Everyone will tell you that Venice is overrun with tourists May through September. They aren't exaggerating. The San Marco area was literally swarming with tour groups clumping around guides with raised flags or umbrella's marching them quickly around the square. It was hard not to think of locusts. Here's the deal -- because the city is so unique and unbelievably beautiful, it's worth it. It really is. We just loved it. However, I can't imagine that staying in a hotel in the middle of all that action would be pleasant.
This hotel was truly a magical place to stay while in the grand city of Venice. It is a smaller hotel with a dozen or so rooms housed in a old mansion. The lobby area and second floor coomon area was like walking into an amazing palace. It is situated on a small canal and our room was on the back of the hotel looking over the canal, it was lovely. The rooms are decorated with period pieces and are just great to sit on the bed and look around the nicely decorated room. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms very modern and large. There is also a beautiful courtyard where you can have breakfast and where they also serve nightly cocktails. The staff was extremely helpful and gave great recommendations on sights and places to eat. While the hotel is a little pricey (we had the least expensive room and it was still great), we would stay there again in a heart beat.
Fantastic Hotel and staff
Our experience of the Palazzo Abadessa was fantastic. It is a large building on a canal, not the Grand canal. Even though the Palazzo is large is only has around 10 rooms. We received the most wonderful personal experience at this hotel and would most definately stay here again. Our room overlooked a canal and had a mezzanine floor. It was delightful. The breakfasts were great. Once again I must mention just how friendly and helpful the staff were, it is a family run hotel. They went out of their way to be helpful.
