Venice Day #2 (Actually in Venice)

... around Venice, trying not to be charged for things that were scams (aka "The Tourist Tax").

Later in the day, we took a Gondola ride around a small section of Venice. It's a cool idea in theory but a little lackluster in practice.

The evening ended with a 4 course Venetian meal that tasted delicious, if a little overfilling.

... your arms must be covered and although i was wearing a tank and shorts I thought i was all smart by going and buying a beautiful scarf for my shoulders. We get in there and apparently shorts are not allowed either - I still had to wear this nasty ass brown shawl thing they give you around my legs the entire time so I looked like a mental case and it was so hot! I added a picture of my miserable self so you can laugh at me - Chris sure did!!
This was all ...

Sorry for the delay in blog posts to all those following the adventures of travelinturners. We've had no Wi-Fi since leaving Spain so have had to wait a while to get back online.

As the name of the post suggests we’ve left Spain and are well and truly into the Italian part of our trip. However, firstly, it’s back to Spain we go…

Since the last blog we had a few more adventures in Spain. One of the ...

... alongside one of the jetties and Ro enjoyed taking many photos. On our way here we stopped off in a few shops, one of them being a camera shop. Ro found himself a new mini tripod which was cause for great excitement.

From the bridge we walked through the many streets lined with shops to Piazza San Marco, where the huge church is as well as Doge’s Palace. The kids enjoyed all the different shops along the way. Masks everywhere, and many ...

The Vaporetto

... found a quiet place for lunch. It was an okay lunch, but we got stuck with 5€ for coperto (cover charge and bread), and 5€ for a bottle of water. Geez! Walked to the beach, just to see it. Took a picture of a bike/cart that I hope will make Caryn and Danny smile. The beach was beautiful. Perfect day, nice breezes, not crowded, nice. Walked back to the Vaporetto stop and got on the first boat. It made a ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Locanda San Barnaba Venice

    A gem

    from

    A real gem - a beautiful old house with frescoed ceilings, spacious, clean, comfortable bedrooms, only 50 metres from the Grand Canal and vaporetto stop, but totally quiet and (for Venice) inexpensive. Good breakfast in attractive courtyard and a sunny roof garden.

    And very helpful staff - on the day we left the vaporettos and buses to the airport were on strike and Roberto the manager went to a great deal of trouble giving us directions and using the phone to find alternatives for us.

    5 star service

    from

    Moderately priced for Venice, but with a staff that goes beyond any possible expectations. My departure from Venice was a ferry to Corfu, and I had very sketchy details of where to pick up my ticket and how to get to the boat. When I came out of my room in the morning, the wonderful concierge had already called the ferry company and had all the details and directions written out for me. He also had the best recomendations for restaurants, etc. What's more, the staff never tired of giving you very specific directions to anywhere you wanted to go--yes, part of the charm of Venice is getting lost, but sometimes you just want to get where you going, and they made it easy. The hotel is pretty, rooms are spotless and breakfast is great. What more could you ask?

    A really good experience

    from

    We found location (35 yds from the vaporetto stop) , ethos, staff attitudes and general service quality at Locanda San Barnaba were all excellent. We would certainly go there again. We had a (lively) toddler with us and staff were tolerant and helpful. Our only qualm - a mini bar would have been an added convenience.

    Perfect location

    from

    The convenience of being steps from the Vaporetto stop was definitely a very big plus because dragging your luggage around the winding paths of Venice to find your hotel can be a nightmare. Of course, there is alot more than that to recommend this gem. We loved staying in a real neighborhood with our own "campo" and local shops. The property has been redone very recently and the bathrooms are great-especially the towel warmers. Beautiful small hotel with a definite European feel.

    Great recommendations from the desk regarding restaurants. They are very patient and professional. Venice is a very expensive city and we thought this hotel was a very good price as well as being so pretty.

    Frescoes on the ceiling

    from

    A wonderful place to spend a few days away from the crowds in peace and calm. Extremely helpful staff who speak much better English than my Italian! There was nothing that was not too much trouble for them.

    The hotel, in a former palace, is down a quiet side street just 50 metres from the vaporetto stop which takes ten minutes to San Marco and Harry's Bar.

    We had a suprior double room with fresco on the ceiling! Also included wre air conditioning and en-suite shower and WC. Room rate August E150/night and E180/night September this rate included a good buffet breakfast too.

    Good local restaurants much cheaper than San Marco with a couple serving meat and no seafood or fish if you have tired of those inevitable dishes.

    Very old world

    from

    The staff were very helpful and the hotel very clean. It has a small canal on one side and little narrow street on the other to give you a strong sense of being in Venice. A few hundred feet from Vaporetto in an area away from tourist. Very relaxing!

    We loved this hotel!

    from

    My husband and I just returned from three weeks in Italy. Foremost on our list of favorites was Venice, due in a large part to the great Locanda San Barnaba. The staff was courteous and very helpful; the room was spacious with two balconies! The location, on a small canal in the Dorsoduro area, was both convenient and peaceful. We're looking forward to a return visit!

    It's so romantic

    from

    One of the most wonderful stays that we have ever had. Besides the beauty of the hotel, the desire of the owner and staff to make every day a perfect one is a delight. Just 50 yards from the Grand Canal they have their own water taxi door and it is just a delightful short walk from the Accademia.

    Delightful and well worth it

    from

    This is a thoroughly enjoyable place to stay. We highly recommend it. The common areas and our room were very good.

    We stayed on the recommendation of friends, one of whom had found it through a review in the NY Times. We would definitely stay there again.

    We had a minor problem with a package which was to have been ready prior to our departure, but was not. The staff could not have been more helpful in making sure that it caught up with us while we were in Tuscany. They even phoned to confirm details of the courier shipment and to be tell our hotel to be sure to look out for the package and accept it. Many hotels would have shipped a package. However, not with the concern and initiative of the staff of the San Barnaba.

    Great Little Treasure

    from

    For Venice, this hotel is modestly priced (Euro 170) and packs a punch. The common rooms are very pretty and inviting and our superior double was wonderful. The room was a little small, but we had two balconies, a fine bathroom (w/tub), and a frescoe on the ceiling. The attendants are very helpful and San Barnaba is in a quiet part of Venice in Dorsoduro. Away from the action but

    close to Accademia and the Guggenheim.
