The first time we visited Venice was in 1973 and as we were quite hard up then, we stayed outside the town. This time, having done my homework on Trip Advisor, I was determined not to miss out on the atmosphere of this wonderful town and elected to stay at Alla Vite Dorata. We did buy a Vaporetto pass for 3 days which turned out to be well worth using on both Canal Grande and Canale Della Giudecca and to go to the islands (Burano is our favourite if you are prepared to explore the quaint coloured squares beyond the main thoroughfare!).
Aleksandra, the B&B owner, was charming, spoke excellent French and English and was always there at breakfast for a friendly chat and advice. The B&B was wonderfully situated along a picturesque canal used by traders. What a treat to have breakfast by the water (I recommend the aged Peccorino cheese) and watch working barges go by!
Our room was on the small side, but very clean.
We would return without any hesitation!
Aleksandra, I hope that your daughter has settled well at College and that you did enjoy your stay in Cinque Terre. It was for us another highlight of our Italian trip!
