We loved our stay here! We were upgraded to a beautiful view overlooking the canal which was just gorgeous! The breakfast was lovely (even for me with a gluten free diet) and we were so well looked after! :)

Valantina and Stefano (and their team) made our stay simply wonderful. They have ensured that their small hotel has a home like feeling and everything was very comfortable. It was very easy to get to with the map they provide close to check-in. Everything we needed was near by within walking distance. The room was warm and the wifi was...

This hotel is the perfect compliment to a complete Venetian experience. Situated on one of the narrow canals, we could watch the Gondolas and water taxi's float by. The accommodations are great, and the owners are friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here, again.

My husband and I had the pleasure of visiting Venice for the first time this year, and our stay was made so much more enjoyable by our lovely hosts at Casa Petrarca! The breakfast was delicious (and there was also a lot of it!) and the location is the best - being close to the Rialto taxi, St Mark's Square...

Gorgeous B and B at an absolute bargain in the centre of Venice. Friendly owners, great communication for check in. Breakfast was provided and perfect to start the day off. Rooms were simple but very clean and practical. Oh and super quiet, we had a great nights sleep every night. Perfect for a city break stay, I would highly recommend!

I stayed here in November. The B&B is in a key location, close to Rialto bridge, and St. Mark's square. Lots of little shops, restaurants, museums and of course churches :) I had a great experience, the room was clean and warm. The breakfast was good and fresh and had plenty of different options. Valentina and Stefano were really helpful...

The Casa Petrarca was the final stop on a three-week dream trip to Italy. I had actually stayed here with my parents 25 years ago so this was not only a place to stay, but also a nostalgic tour of memories. The hotel is a short walk to nearly everything, about the halfway point between the Rialto Bridge and San...

My wife and I spent two nights at Casa Petrarca prior to a cruise. The hotel was clean and well cared for.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
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 Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
