Bed and Breakfast Corte Campana
Ranked #50 of 476 Venice B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 26, 2013

This B&B is the family home of Ricardo and you will be sleeping in one of the three family bedrooms. He is most helpful and we needed a lot of help! I was so impressed by the terrazzo floors and magnificent large wooden armoirs in the room. We had an attached bathroom which was large and clean. It was less that a 10 minute walk to St. Mark's Square which means that you can take an early morning walk to the square when it is almost completely empty and quietly fulfilling. You will probably take all your "stuff" with you after the included breakfast as you have 4 flights up to the home.Ricardo goes to the gym almost every day and is able to carry your luggage... and maybe even you.

Room Tip: Make sure that you can walk up stairs.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Corte Campana in September of 2012. The accommodations were very comfortable, the location superb, and Riccardo's hospitality second to none! Riccardo's advice and directions made our exploring Venice much more enjoyable, and stress free. We highly recommend you stay at Corte Campana when you travel to Venice.

We could not imagine a more perfect stay in Venice than with Riccardo at his B&B, the Corte Campana. The location was ideal and even in the dark, we easily found our way there. Our room, with its own bath, was spacious and sparkling and overlooked our own private courtyard. Even though we were within easy walking distance of St. Mark's Square it could not have been quieter at nighttime (great sleeping!). Every morning we awoke to delicious breakfasts served in the dining/sitting room right outside our bedroom. Riccardo gave us spectacular tips about what to see, how to get there and even made reservations for us for dinner. HIs energy, his graciousness and his love of Venice were contagious. We were sad to leave but have promised ourselves (and Riccardo!) that we will be back.

Room Tip: Whatever Riccardo recommends, do it! He knows and loves Venice better than anyone.

Our family of 3 really enjoyed our stay at the end of Oct 2012. We had a very nice triple room very close to St. marks Square with all the amenities and a great value, but the highlight of our trip was Riccardo. He a very friendly and helpful host with good restaurant recommendations. Highly recommended

Stayed here for the second time for five nights in November, 2012. The B&B is comfortable, a good value, and in a handy location, but it's the owner Riccardo who really makes the experience.

Riccardo is friendly, funny, helpful, and very high energy. He loves Venice and obviously enjoys sharing it with his guests. He can provide a long list of good places to eat, shop, see concerts, etc., and he wants to be sure you have a good time while you stay with him.

Staying there really added to the fun we had on our trip -- we even enjoyed the aqua alta!

Rick Steves has never led us astray.
Yes, it is 4 flights up. Yes, Riccardo does keep your passport till you check out. The rooms are clean , spacious and for Venice, very good value. The location is superb and an easy walk from the Alilaguna or Vaporetto stops at San Marco. You do have to do your navigation homework before arriving... just follow the photos and directions on the web site. Breakfast is continental and quite adequate... this is Venice, you ARE going to stop for lunch. Riccardo is friendly and informative ( as are your fellow B&B guests). Lots of tips on restaurants and when to visit sites. You will not be spending much time in your room, You do not need the fancy lobby and flat screen mega TV.

It was a real treat to stay at Corte Campana and to get to know Ricardo. He truly loves his job, and it shows. He met us after we got lost finding the place (don't try walking from the train station, that was a big mistake with all the canals and bridges) and grabbed my luggage and carried it the rest of the way. The B & B is the home he grew up in, so it definitely feels like you are in a home. There are three rooms, and therefore three tables for guests at breakfast which is served promptly at 8:15. Breakfast is a great time to compare notes with the other guests and with Ricardo for recommendations on places to go and places to eat. There is a nice common room with many travel books that previous travelers have graciously left behind, and a computer available for guests to use. We had the only room with the bathroom "down the hall" which was no problem whatsoever. Ricardo is charming, helpful, enthusiastic, and we were very pleased with his B & B.

Room Tip: two rooms have private bathrooms, but ours had one "down the hall" which was actually no p...
