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.

The next day we went on two tours. On the first tour the Tour Guide told us about San Marco Basilica. ...

... worth while. There are now only the four of us left for the remaining disorganised section to Lucca (for a week), Rome and Shanghai.
Disorganisation is my forte so it should go well.
Our tour around the old Venetian palace and the Basilica of St Mark was worth its weight in gold and several tons of it lined the ceilings and walls of these buildings. Yesterday was spent searching the shops ...
... Europe - second only to London. In fact, they list it as one of their tourist attractions. The Internet is full of horror stories about encounters with the ticket inspectors but we found them helpful and obliging, even proactive on occasions to ensure we didn't make mistakes. Seems that all one has to do is simply what one is asked to - buy the ticket and have it validated on the date machine. No problems! It seems simply that some have an issue with being asked to show their ...
... Collection, which is highly recommended, and for good reason. It's basically a modern art gallery, which features a lot of amazing 20th century artists, like Picasso, Max Ernst, Duchamp and Miro. There was one work by Salvador Dali, The Birth of Liquid Desires, but I read in the guidebook that Peggy Guggenheim didn't like Dali, either personally or professionally, and that she only bought one ...
