My husband and I don't usually worry about staying in the nicest hotels, just because we spend so little time in them. But, after almost two weeks in tiny places in Rome and Florence with no bathtubs, our stay at the Duodo Palace was a welcome change. It was truly magnificent! High, painted ceilings, Murano glass mirrors and light fixtures. Don't miss the free boat ride to the glass blowing factory! The bathroom was all marble, old- yet brand new. The breakfast was substantial. The front entrance is right on an inner canal, though be careful of the cost- especially from the airport! The hotel is in the theatre district so it's always lively and if you get lost just ask people for the Opera House- very close to the hotel. We were on the third floor and I thought it would be a great idea to leave the windows open to hear the waves from passing gondolas. Unfortunately, the mosquitos found us! Go to Venice and stay at the Duodo Palace! You won't be disappointed!
