... the space between the trees and showed me which were the 10amp sockets as opposed to the 6amp and how to reset them if we blew them. While they were waiting for me Raewyn got chatting to him about our electrical socket problem and he said he would have a look and he could possibly fix them. After parking the bus he came on board and had a look and said he would be down in the morning to check it to try and ...
... seriously, he tried to get us to have grappa...yuck...grappa....we said no, he said trust me...we said not and we got 3 limoncellos. Cindy declined.
We were laughing and talking about this when the couple next to us chimed in and said that they had started to order completely different things and he talked them into something else. Concensus was that he knew his stuff, we were all happy. (Oh, he also gave us a second glass of limoncello, knodded toward ...
... We met the drummer from the band, who was a young Aussie bloke. His name was Gerard and we called him Gezza, much to his delight. After a few more delicious cocktails we grabbed some seats in the entertainment theatre for A Night With Celine Dion. Obviously not the real Celine, but an amazing impersonator, who sung all the hits, and sounded so much like the real thing! We came back to our rooms to find a little towel elephant creation on our bed, made by ...
Wednesday we spent the whole day in Venice. It took us half an hour to get there by boat. When we arrived I did an optional walking tour. The tour guide was really entertaining and we did it at about 10am so it was still cool. It was a really good tour. We walked from St Marks square to the Rialto Bridge and back, and she showed us some good restaurants along the way. After the walking tour we had a glass blowing demonstration. This was quite interesting and we got to ...
... it is the oldest continuously populated region of Venice and once held the largest population of the Republic of Venice. Although every effort has been made to preserve the church there are parts which are virtually crumbling away with age.
After Torcello we headed back to the main island and took a stroll around St Marks Square and had a good look at The Bridge of Sighs which was being renovated during our last visit to Venice.

Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda Ca' del Brocchi Venice
Very friendly hotel
A gorgeous little hotel, well located & with a team of very friendly staff. I've stayed in a few hotels in Venice & this one is definitely one of the best value hotels. I will definitely return to this hotel.
This charming hotel is located about a 5 minute walk from the Accademia Bridge and Vaperetto stop. GET DIRECTIONS BEFORE YOU GO! We spent an inordinate amount of time looking for the place and even the locals don't know where it is. Once you find it though you be pleasently surprised. The rooms are decorated in old traditional Venitian wall coverings with ornate sconces and what looked like Murano glass chandeliers. Each room has a minibar, TV (no CNN International though), armoire and ours had a fireplace (I don't know if all the rooms do).
We loved this charming small hotel (just 7 rooms) tucked away on a quiet street in Venice. It was just a 5 minute walk to the Accademia Bridge - convenient to everything. The Dorsodoro location was perfect for us. Our room was quite large by European standards with an updated and beautiful bathroom. We even had a small balcony. The decor was elegant. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely return.
