Lovely Hotel just a short walk to S Marco
Magical experience from the moment we arrived by a very efficient water taxi service. Hotel was easy to find and no steps to encounter on short walk from taxi stop. Easy check in and very friendly Hotel staff. Be prepared for lots of walking and getting lost, that's part of the fun of exploring! We spent 4 days of visiting museums, churches, Murano Glass factory (well worth seeing a demonstration), Doge's Palace is a must of course, lots of walking and counting bridges, Rialto Bridge (a few times), and yes, a Gondola ride! Although expensive, it was well worth it especially if you have a very informative Gondelier like we did! Lots of lovely Italian food available, but be aware of service charge and cover charges at some restaurants. In all a fabulous trip to wonderful Venice with the added bonus of glorious weather during our stay.
