The young woman who welcomed us to Ca' Due Leoni was the perhaps the nicest receptionist that I have ever encountered.

Every single one of them is multi-lingual and has the sole mission in life to make sure that we enjoy our experience. After only a short time on board, we both agreed that if we were to go on another cruise, it would have to be at this higher level of service. Now that we’ve had a taste of the best, we simply couldn’t go ...
We stayed a total of four nights at the start of May. We had heard Venice can be a bit smelly in summer and it often floods in Winter so we timed our trip to be in spring which was perfect. All the window boxes were full of flowering plants and the weather (besides one day of complete rain) was ideal.
As I always do, I researched a place to stay that had a "feel" for Venice. I am not big on standard hotel chains or ...
... higher. St Marks Square is often flooded and many of the shops on the square and around have special steel covers made for their door ways. They are fitted into special slots in the doorway and stop the water coming in. Some of the other buildings along the canals are not so lucky and they first level can have water in them quite often. we saw even on a normal tide the water lapping inside the front doors of many places. There are only about 60000 ...
