TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Palazzo Stern Venice
Many hotels in Italy claim to be a "palace" but this one of those hotel gems that can genuinely lay claim to the title. Vastly rennovated in the beginning of the twentieth century the interior of this hotel is a work of art with Murano glass candeliers, Roman-style mosaics, at least one gilded icon, columns, and beautiful wooden floors. The rooms are of a decent size - comfortable and relaxing. The staff are very friendly and the location is well within walking distance of the Gallerie dell'Accademia and other Venetian landmarks.

In the middle of lunch an ...
... a labyrinth of alleys, lane and narrow passageways, punctuated by meandering canals and bridges to cross over the canals. Our legs have certainly felt the strain of crossing so many bridges. The buildings and many bridges are like we are stepping back in time. World heritage prohibits any work being done to the external structures unless they are in danger of collapsing, and while many look like it they are obviously structurally ...
... appreciated. Unfortunately we finished on some pretty ordinary and very expensive secondi dishes that would have left bad tastes in our mouths had we not been given copious amounts of complimentary limoncello to wash it all down. Yay for alcohol once again!! The night finished on a high as we walked the now deserted back streets and bridges back to our hotel. To us, for this 45 odd minutes, the touristic Venice became the traditional millennia old Venezia.
... our birds eye view gave us mesmerizing views.
We had lunch on the ship, then took a 4 hour walking tour, "Treasures of Venice". We started from Piazzale Roma and were taken through backstreets, alleyways, across campos, and many beautiful old churches. We crossed the Rialto Bridge which was jammed packed with people, watched families taking gondola rides, went into St Mark's Square, saw the Doges Palace, and finally, the little Bridge ...
