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.

Once we'd caught our breath, and changed into something cooler ( it was very hot in Venice today), we went off in search of a cold drink and some lunch. As we walked across ...
... what we did on the way back to Venice! We were plumb tuckered out, and decided that we just wanted something quick, and most importantly, something close, for dinner. We consulted with our trusty concierge at the hotel who had not led us astray so far, and he suggested a trattoria 'just a few minutes away'. So back we went, through Piazza San Marco (for about the tenth time in three days), and found ...
... too different than I remembered, but with more people and fewer pigeons. We went into St Mark's Basilica, where they did not allow any pictures. The inside is completely covered with beautiful, gold mosaics. The Basilica was built in 1094 to hold the remains of the Apostle Mark, which were stolen from Egypt by Venetians. From there we walked through the San ...
... are lethal! They don't get scared of you and if they think you have food on you they fly up on your arms! Crazy stuff. After bargaining with many different gondola rider people we realized the standard price was 80 euro (maaaan!) and Erin and I shared the cost for Hannah's birthday! The gondola was very relaxing and obviously a must do, especially seeing where casino royale (and 'the Tourist'- who cares about that movie though) ...
