We chose this hotel on the basis of reviews in Tripadvisor and were rather disappointed. Firstly, we paid 420 Euros for 2 nights which is a bit of a rip off for a 3 star hotel. Well, you might say, this is Venice. Secondly, do...More
This is an absolute charmer of a place: on a canal just off the Grand Canal, right beside a gondola station, over a bridge and a couple of minutes away from St. Mark’s square, perfectly located for all the walking you’re going to do in...More
The wonderful Hotel Violino d'oro. A wonderful experience. We stayed 10 & 7 years ago & this year, again, did not disappoint. We booked 8 months ago to ensure of 2 rooms (family travelling). We did not have a view but were put together which...More

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
