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... More

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... More

Hotel staff were very helpful both during our stay and before our arrival, providing easy directions from the Rialto to the hotel.

It was my 3rd time in Venice but for the first time I felt very special. The Hotel Casa Petrarca is very cosy, clean (very important!) with a nice and quiet atmosphere. It is located in the heart of Venice (very close to San Marco Square). Lovely breakfast, lovely, open and very helpful owner Stefano. I can not wait to... More

When the GPS couldn't find the hotel we thought it was a bad omen - couldn't have been more wrong! The warm welcome, comfy bed & great view from the breakfast table coupled with the very attentive (but not overbearing) service made our stay a delight. Ideally located in the middle of all you'll want to see and visit. We... More

Stayed here for 4 nights. A little hard to find but what isn't in Venice. Welcoming friendly staff. The room was very small but that is what I expected. Well located to get to Rialto and Saint Marks Square. Clean room. Good breakfast. Good Wi-Fi Great over all for the price.

The Hotel Casa Petrarca is a lovely hotel near San Marco Square. Our room had a canal view, and we enjoyed watching the gondolas go by in the evening while we enjoyed a glass of wine beside the window. In the morning, we would sit beside the window with a cup of coffee before going to San Marco square. The... More

Location: this hotel is located in the middle of San Marco. We walked everywhere. It was a little tricky to find as there are so many little walkways everywhere but that is just part of the charm of Venice. Hotel: from the outside the hotel just looks like a normal building and even when you enter you will have to... More

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.
