Gondolas, canals and the Rialto.....

Venice Day 1

The drive here was very good. We took the 'people mover' (tram) over from the parking to the mainland. From here we took a vaporetto (water Taxi) to the famous Rialto Bridge. We fought the crowds to get over the bridge and actually found our hotel within the first 10 minutes. We're getting good at this. Lots of stairs to get …

The Venice of my Dreams

A travel blog entry by indianajill


Our taxi is arranged for 9:00 am and we are meeting Guiseppe shortly before that to hand over the apartment keys. I am up early to clean out the fridge and pack our lunch for the train. Stresa to Milan is an hour, we have an hour between trains and we must quickly find the baggage check and get our platform number and then it is 2 1/2 hours on the …

J: As we left Amsterdam, I wondered if we had been too harsh. Maybe it was us to insulated in our ways to really understand this great city with the gentile bikes but the aggressive bikers. I was wrong. When we arrived in Italy I was reminded again what great people are all about.

The overnight train was very interesting. …

Buon Giorno from Venizia!

We finally made it across the pond! I haven't been able to update the blog until now because we've been busy doing a lot of walking and are also a little jet-lagged. Also, the WIFI at the pensione only works on the first floor lobby area and not in our 3rd floor room.

We arrived in Amsterdam on time at 8:30am and then realized that we …

Lost (Again) in the Maze

(Guest blog by Bob Bulow)
We arrived in Venice almost 45 minutes early, but Emily didn't disappoint and was there to greet us as she had promised. How many other Americans on our flight had a welcoming party?

We bought a bus ticket to the city, and then transferred to a vaporetto on the Grand Canal. Our adventure had truly begun as the …

    Very central location. Close to the Rialto Bridge. On a quiet street, away from the noise of the canal. The room is nice and big with a French New Orleans feel. The bathroom is clean. The rooms are newly redone, but not modern.

    I can't imagine a nicer place


    LOCATION: Right in the heart of it all, within 5 minutes of the Rialto, the Fish Market and the Grand Canal. On a quiet lane.

    Lovely pensione


    travelled with a high shcool basketball team to Venice. Roberto and Piero were more than accommodating and provided assistance with respect to getting around venice and neighbouring region. The pensione is just a short walk from Ponte Rialto and the Fish Market. Great location and quite charming. I would recommend it for an authentic stay.

    Ciao Venezia

    The staff makes all the difference


    My family and I stayed at this pensione at the end of April for three nights. We loved it. The staff is so helpful and friendly. They put hospitable in hopsitality. Not only are the owners very helpful and kind, but also every staff member is pleasant and helpful. Before staying here, I read the previous negative review and was concerned. I considered changing my reservation, but am so glad that I didn't. We loved this place.

    A small step above my college dorm room


    We stayed at this hotel on the recommendation of the Rick Steves guidebook (like everyone else at the place, as there were patrons at breakfast reverently reading lengthy passages from the book as if it were the Bible). Normally Rick is dead on for his recommendations; however, I have to say he missed the mark on this one.

    What a find - great location and service!


    This pensione is Venice is a true find. I stayed with my family here for 2 nights in September 2005 and had a wonderful experience. Piero and Roberto are wonderful hosts and very friendly and informative. The breakfast was OUTSTANDING for what you usually receive in Europe for an included breakfast... remember to ask for Chocolata Calda (hot chocolate) - they will make it for you! Wonderful... The location can't be beat - a few feet away from the Rialto bridge and right next to the market (fruit and fish)... the rooms are clean and modern with many including bathroooms of decent size. For the price, this place cannot be beat in Venice! I highly recommend the Pensione Guerrato!

    Rented the Apartment


    Our family of 5 stayed at the Pensione Gerrato apartment for 2 nights in December. This is a very large and great location by the Rialto Bridge. The was the greatest place we have stayed, but be prepared for some stairs. You enter the apartment from the street level, and go up a set of stairs to the living room; one bedroom is on this floor. You then go up to the next floor, bathroom and another bedroom. Go up another floor you get to the next bedroom. All are very large. The place was very clean and wonderful. I would highly recommend this apartment for a group. Our family felt like a Venice family, and how they might live.

    Adorable Pensione, Fab Location, Best Bang for the Buck!


    I stayed at this pensione in Aug 05 and loved it! The antique furnishings add old world charm to this little hotel found down a small alley right off of the market by the Rialto bridge. You can not ask for a better location!! The staff is so incredibly nice -- they were very helpful and went above and beyond: they confirmed my reservations at my hotel inmy next destination, they made dinner reservations, reccomended great inexpensive cafes for lunch, and helped with transportation. I was trying to save money and travelling alone so I stayed in a double room with a shared bath down the hall. They only charged me a "single rate" for the room, which was very nice indeed. The shared bathroom was immaculate -- brand new renovation, and only shared with a couple of other rooms; I never saw anyone else heading to or from the shared bathroom. I met some girls one night who hated their pensione b/c there was an unadvertised curfew, so they switched to Pensione Gerrato (no cerfew!) and they were thrilled. If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in Venice, and want something charming, comfortable, and clean -- with a great location -- Pensione Gerrato is the place! I will certainly stay there when I return!!

    Incredible service, Old World Charm


    The Pensione Guerrato is located at the foot of the Rialto bridge in the middle of it all but tucked away down an alley, literally 1 block away. There is a huge produce and fish market on the corner where you can buy fresh food from the locals! The staff at this place went way beyond the call of duty for us and other guests. We had a 7:00am flight which meant we would miss breakfast so they packed us a bag breakfast! When we asked what would be the best way to get to the airport, the man at the desk immediately jumped on the internet to find which water taxi would get us to the bus station and which bus to the airport. He even gave us a detailed drawing as to how to get to the water taxi stop, without having to go over the bridges with all our bags. While out shopping, we saw the same man carrying bags and leading some guests to the stop. I wouldn't even expect this kind of service from the Ritz! The night-shift man checked the status of our flight for us the night before. We felt very well taken care of here. The rooms were wonderul. Very comfortable, spacious, quiet, and beautifully decorated. The bathrooms were spotless. The building is 800 years old which gives it a lot of character. I would highly recommend staying at this Pensione - we felt we hit the jackpot with this one!
