... cleverly designed mosaic floors and lots of the gold leaf decorating everything in the traditional. baroque style. One painting stretched across one back wall and measured 27metres. We walked across the Bridge of Sighs to the new prison. The cells were in stark contrast to the rooms of the palace that were painted and decorated elaborately.
We left the palace for a quick walk past St Marks basilica. Apparently ...
Early start and bags packed ready for a a midday trip to the cruise terminal . Had a few hours to kill so walked to the Academia area of Venice- beautiful area to walk and and again plenty of photo opportunities. The major tourist attractions had huge crowds lined up so a few church visits was all we visited this morning. We had decided to take the water taxi to the Cruise terminal and luckily had found a driver who had one of the shiny, timber boats . He dutifully ...
... in Venice seemed to consist of peeing on the humps of bridges crossing all the canals. This turned into a battle of wills between him and us, particularly if there was a gondola passing underneath. Being rained on by Kye water would definitely ruin an unsuspecting couples romantic gondola ride. Italy was a country both Mr. B and I were unsure we would enjoy. However, having spent a lot more time here than we originally intended, I think you could safely say we discovered ...
... a visit), so we scheduled all our activities which required public transport to be within those three days.
What we also didn't realise was that the ACTV service (these are the vaporetto buses) does not go to or from the airport, so keep some money aside for the trip back! Failing that, you can just get the ACTV to Pizalle Roma and then get the No5 land-bus to the airport

... I might admit, I sat there and wondered where those words came from themselves. Fact of the matter is, I had spoken some truth. Throughout my travels, I felt myself grow. In more aspects than one. I found myself getting lost in different languages not knowing a word being said, but yet, finding more and more about myself as I navigated through them by relating to the similarities despite the differences. It was an odd feeling thinking about being ...

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.
Great rooms, quiet location
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).
The rooms are spacious enough. And the bathroom includes a heated towel rack, sink, toilet, bidet, and jacuzzi shower where you can set it to traditional shower or have the sprays come at you from the sides. The staff was very friendly but not so fluent in English.
The complimentary breakfast was prepackaged croissants (plain or cherry), yogurt and rolls. Passable but nothing to write home about.
The hotel is located in a quiet area of Venice but still a short walk to the busier spots. I highly recommend this place and would stay there again.
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.
