TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel San Salvador Venice
A great hotel right in the heart of the city. It advertised itself as a Hostel but it really was a beautiful Venetian hotel. My room was a one bedroom with a private bathroom and it was at what I considered a very good prince for its awesome location (right next to the Rialto bridge). Only complaint is that my room was right next to the reception desk, so I could hear the conversations every time someone new checked in. Either way, I suggest this place to anyone visiting Venice.

I also went into an exhibition that showcased all of the common costumes and ...
... despite the cold. We all had a quick look in the church and made our way home, which a short stop for a gondola ride.
We found one in a smaller canal, which took us out onto the Grand Canal, under Rialto Bridge and back again. It was so quiet and peaceful and despite being a highly touristy thing to do we all enjoyed it.
Home for lunch and a quiet afternoon. Ro and I went out on our own for a while. We enjoyed walking around Venice as it ...
... a suggestion for a good restaurant away from the tourists. He made a suggestion and off we went in search of it via the vaporetta down the grand canal. We didn't realize it, but this restaurant was close to the Ghetto. We finally get to the restaurant only to find that it was closed for August for vacation. So....since we were at the Ghetto, we went back to the restaurant we went to the day before. This time everybody had what I had. Now the funny part of this ...
