Our room as you can see in the video is one of the largest I've ever had in a hotel, the furnishings are extremely elegant and in Venetian style and the staff is really very kind.

Content: We met Riccardo and decided to take a gondola ride, beware that a gondola ride costs € 80 during the day, € 100 for the evening ride. He gave us a little discount otherwise we probably wouldn't have had this experience. It was truly a unique emotion and I would like to recommend it to anyone visiting Venice.

Content: we went up to this terrace which has a great view over the Grand Canal and the Rialto. The best thing of this terrace is that it’s completely free, I recommend you book tickets online in advance because only a limited number of people can go up every quarter of an hour and it is always very full. We have seen a lot of people go away because they hadn't booked.

Content: The acqua alta bookshop is a must see in Venice and every photographer's paradise. There are books everywhere, even in a gondola, in some boats and in large basins. The books are all for sale and the bookshop, although touristy, is more authentic than ever. Tip: if you want to take some nice pictures go as soon as it opens and make sure to take some pictures on the large scale of books, a very unique place.

Content: Another 20 minutes walk to the train station, bye bye Venice! LAST TIP: if you are good walkers you can do this itinerary even in 3/4 days, Venice is not very big and the ferries to get around are quite expensive. We preferred to take a hotel in the center and walk around the city, but to be honest we walked 44km 🤪 so wear comfortable shoes
