We stayed for 3 nights at Al Teatro B&B and it was wonderful.
Our room: opens to 2 canals with 3 windows and the view is lovely. The canals are frequented by gondolas and in the late afternoons, we often opened the windows to enjoy the arias sang by singers on the passing gondolas, and waved at the tourists sailing pass. I occasionally sat on the wide window ledge to enjoy the view with a cup of tea. Our room is roomy and clean. Wonderful!
The location: very easy to get to from the waterbus stop, even with our luggage. The B&B is very near to St Mark’s square, Rialto Bridge, Dosoduro, Musica a Palazzo (which we enjoyed very much) and other major Venice attractions, and we walked everywhere. We usually woke up at 6am each day, walked to St Mark’s square or other campo to enjoy Venice as it was waking up (and experiencing Venice without hordes of other tourists is magical), then went back to the B&B for breakfast and lively conversations with Eleonora and other tourists staying at B&B, before heading out again.
The hostess: Eleonora is gracious, informative and friendly. Breakfast is good with a wonderful selection of fruits. Fruits and a small selection of biscuits are left in the breakfast room, in case we needed a snack during the day. She gave good recommendations for restaurants in the neighborhood we wanted to visit, as well as good advise on our itinerary. As we were leaving on the 4pm train on our last day, she readily agreed to us leaving our bags at the B&B, and gave us an access pass to get into the B&B to retrieve our bags, and even showed us a bathroom we could use after check out. Very organized and generous.
Thanks, Eleonora, we had a wonderful time in Venice, and staying at your B&B added to the magic
