... after all, it is my perfect day.) The weather is so beautiful and the Italians are in such a good mood that they decide public transportation is free today! (Lots of sarcasm in that last sentence.) There's an empty seat next to a good-looking young lad who I have noticed on the boat a few days in a row now, so I daintily sit down next to him while wearing one of my favorite dresses. Instead of texting on his phone the entire time, he strikes up ...
... ship offered us a water shuttle for $10 one way or $20 round trip to get to the main tourist attractions where those eight thousand tourists were hanging out. If this was our only few hours in Venice, we would have taken that shuttle, but it wasn't. For €18 we could buy a 12 hour pass with unlimited transfers on the vaporetto (water bus). €2 more we could have a 24 hour pass. We were going with plan B. We were going to walk and use the vaporetto. ...
... that life changing. I believe this is because for years I've been seeing Big Ben in pictures or Peter Pan and I created this intense, romantic moment in my head where I would see the clock tower and be... oh, I don't know, moved to tears or something. Do I have a point in all of this or am I just picking on poor Big Ben? Yes! This is actually going somewhere, I promise.
So after slightly recovering from the exhaustion of my 10 day whirlwind fall break vacation, my ...

I enjoyed Venice. A quick, short stay, but just enough to see it and get experience a beautiful, romantic city with myself! I enjoyed my walks through the streets, always stumbling across something new and interesting to see. The canals, which I ...
... the body of St. Marc, the Basilica features a variety of different coloured marble columns giving way to beautifully decorated domes and a large terrace housing four gilded horse statues. The interior, however, is particularly amazing as almost the entirety of its ceiling murals are made up of a mosaic of hundreds upon thousands of tiny golden pieces. Neighbouring the Basilica is Torre dell’Orolegio, an intricate astrological clock of gold and blue indicating ...

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!
