We stayed at Ca' Barba from October 5th to the 7th. Our room was very comfortable and clean, complete with a desk/chair and a large closet. There are 4 rooms in total and a shared kitchen/dining area. There was also access to complimentary soft drinks, bottled water, milk and fruit.
Alessandro's love and passion for Venice is infectious, and he made us feel very welcome. He lent us 2 books on the day of our arrival, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading “Venice is a fish” by Tiziano Scarpa. Trust Alessandro when he says: "Throw away the map and get lost in Venice…!” That was the best advice ever; we didn’t fall into the touristy traps and discovered a side of Venice that you can only experience by strolling the alleyways. He suggested that we visit the island of San Giorgio Maggiore, views from the top of the bell tower are by far the best in Venice.
When you need to get somewhere specific, Alessandro has an amazing talent at drawing perfect and precise little maps.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ca' Barba. Grazie mille Alessandro!
