We stayed at 5 different properties on our recent trip to Italy, all were excellent, but Foresteria Fondazione Levi was the most perfect of all as it is "right there" in the middle of "what" we were visiting. And it is "hidden away, " although in the center of the city! Protected, secured, private, and our room--quiet, quiet, elegant, "removed" from Venice's bustle (realize, 150,000 tourists per day now--see the gigantic tourist ships).
Of course, we knew, with Venice, that we would have to garage our rental car. In other cities,
"what to do with the car" did affect the accomodations we chose.
We chose a safe garage, and left our luggage in it. We carried only a few hand-bags into Venice (so think carefully about this, even check your luggage at the station. It is not easy negotiating weighty luggage).
We had requested a quiet room, and were given one. A spacious refuge. Lovely bathroom, too. Excellent bath towels and linens, changed each day!
The location is excellent. Pay careful attention to the directions. Go to Accademia vaporetto stop. Go over the Accademia bridge. Choose the 2nd bridge on the left (1st is chained off, and is private) and keep going straight and the door is right ahead of you. At night it can be darkened, just ring the bell, it is opened, and you are in a courtyard. 24 hour desk.
Free WiFi. They'll watch over your luggage after you check-out and want one last look at Venice.
