Today started off with my first run of the trip. I decide to go out for about 30 minutes. I didn't have a map. I got lost. I was gone for 45 minutes thanls to the guy who gave me directions. We had decided to spend the day looking at the surrounding islands. Our first stop was at Murano which is famous for it's glassware. Murano is a lot smaller …
Fiona, are you OK? We awoke bright and early for our first full day in Venice. Fiona complained her leg was hurting (her varicose vein). We had our continental breakfast we was very nice and set off for St Mark's square. I had a map. I got lost! It was at this point I realised what was happening. The map does not have all the streets marked on it. …
The fall of the Roman Empire.... On Tuesday we left Paris. We had checked out how to get to Gare De Lyon (Lyon Station) by 7:40am the previous day. Our plan was to get a bus that went straight there at 6:15am. We were up at 5:30am and at the bus stop by 6:10am. Our only problem was that there was no one there to sell us a ticket and the dispensing …
... close by and I grab a light sweater and head back out. Venice is never still and as it is a Saturday night young people are out everywhere (and here as in everywhere in Italy they stand in the streets outside of bars drinking and laughing). A party atmosphere seems to prevail as I get a slice of pizza from a pizza window and wander the streets eating my slice and feeling very much at home, this is indeed the Venice of my ...
... lifts. So we took advantage of the water bus passes at night to see Venice's famous sights in the off-hours. One favourite nighttime experience was finding our way back from one side of the main island to the other. Venice's barely named narrow streets and alleys (landmarks are the popular way to form directions) make up a maze of paths that will always spill you out alongside a canal, or into a square busy with cafe life. If you make a wrong turn and end up in an ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Vecellio Venice
The Real Venice
A clean and comfortable hotel in a great situation on the waterfront to the north of Venice (see photo). However, it is within a short walking distance from Saint Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge. Proprietor Matteo was very friendly and recommended a number of typically Venetian restaurants which had great food and local atmosphere at local (not tourist!) prices.
Veidi vici Vecellio
Good little hotel, a short walk from the Rialto (once you master the walk). Hotel was too warm for me but great for you coldies. Great if you have problem with getting around as water bus stop is right outside. Staff friendly including Matteo who is witty. After a day in crowds nice to go back somewhere a bit quieter. I would stay there again.
Not to be missed
This small hotel is a wonderful base to see Venice. It is conveninet for arrival from the airport, as the waterbus stop is just outside. It is warm and welcoming. The rooms are comfortable AND attractive. The breakfast is better than most hotel breakfasts. The croissants and rolls were fresh and the coffee was decent too. San Marco and Rialto within 10- 15 minutes walk, and waterbus stops for islands, Lido and the circular lines outside. Best place we've stopped in a dozen visits to Venice.
Beautifully finished hotel with a romantic, calming atmosphere. Close to restaurant, sandwich shop, pastry shop, grocery store, water bus stop to Murano & Burano. 15-20 minute walk to main sights of Venice. Unfortunately, we could hear conversations in hallway and from other room. More soundproofing would make this an ideal stay, and would make the romantic decor more useful. Even so, we found this hotel to be our favourite on our trip. Our room also had a very good water view and we were not disturbed by outside noises. The heated floors are fantastic in winter time! Free safe in room.
Lovely hotel, great location
Just got back and agree with previous comments completely. Wonderful clean room and 15 mins walk to most 'sights'. So easy to find....... we saw so many 'lost' people searching back streets for their hotel with luggage late at night, ours was literally the vaporetta stop.
Worth eating in this area before an evening stroll to the main area as much better value.
Breakfast was simple but enough, and the ice cream shop next door is sooooooooooo tempting!!
Can't wait to go back to the Hotel Vecellio
I just got back from my vacation in Italy and staying at the the Hotel Vecellio was one of the highlights. It is a very pretty hotel. The rooms were decorated beautifully and very comfortable. The hotel is in a good location and very easy to get to. I am looking forward to my next trip to Venice and staying at Hotel Vecellio again.
Wonderful place to go to, very friendly staff, excellent view, all clean and cosy and quiet. Ideal for honeymooners. The waterbus stop is right in front of the hotel - very easy access to all destinations and airport, the view from our room was to the island of Murano and the Lagoon. Highly recommended place. All history sights and shopping within walking distance, including restaurants and ATM. Ancient Venetian house newly renovated in venetian style. Will definitely go back!
