We just returned from our visit to Venice and Ca' Barba. Alessandro was an excellent host, ensuring we always had an itinerary planned for the day, with meticulously hand-written directions. His emphasis was on great places to see where you are away from the crowds, which is extremely important, as even in April Venice is quite a crazy busy place.... More

There is nothing more reassuring to jet-lagged travelers than being greeted by a friendly face on the vaporetto dock. Alessandro led us through the Rialto Market and down tiny viccolos to his spotless B&B. A Veniziano by birth, Alessandro generously shared both a room in his home and his love for his city with us. His tips on places to... More

We had the most perfect stay at CA' Barba B&B during our stay in Venice. Alessandro provided us with everything we needed and made sure, that we never lacked insider tips on the city, which all in all made it one of our favorite vacations ever. Our highest recommendations, if you want to experience the true Venice!

In short, everywhere is not cheap in Venice given its a tourist spot. However, this B&B is great. The host is absolutely friendly and bother to ensure you have a good experience in the city. He starts off with loaning you some text on the history and experience. Room is clean and there is free flow of drinks from the... More

We went on a cruise in June 2013, and opted to spend a few days in Venice after it was over. We stayed at Ca' Barba, and our experience was spectacular. Alessandro was extremely hospitable, and took the time to give us restaurant recommendations and ideas for what to do during the day. However, even before we set sail, his... More

We stayed at Ca Barba for three nights, and could not expect a happier stay! The B&B is located near the Realto Mercato and we can easily walk to everything; yet it is tucked away in a small quiet alley such that we get peaceful sleep every night. Others have commented on all the wonderful aspects of this B&B: location,... More

Would definitely recommend Ca' Barba B&B anytime! Alessandro's hospitality and recommendations from a true Venetian's perspective, just made our stay in Venice extra special. We hung out where the locals did and checked out places where little tourists went. It was as though we had Venice all to ourselves.

Our stay at Ca' Barba in October was lovely. The host was extremely attentive and took extra time to draw us detailed maps and give special recommendations of places to eat and things to go and see. The breakfasts were generous and superb - fresh wonderful pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, juice, cappuccinos made to order etc. We had access to... More

After returning from a weekend trip to Venice, we would like to recommend Ca' Barba B & B Especially Alessandro for making our trip to Venice such a special one. From Alessandro's first e-mails to meeting us off the Vaporetto to take us to our accommodation, nothing was too much trouble. He recommended places to visit and eat and then... More

We ended up having to book a hotel room by ourselves because our travel agent was unable to secure a reservation. We contacted Alessandro and he walked us through the entire process. I have never had access to a manager or owner like I did at this property. He answered every question we had, gave us his personal phone number... More
