Our stay at Teatro B&B was great. First, I couldn’t believe the location—6 minute walk to San Marco, but on a quiet back street across the canal from the Teatro Fenice. The leaning tower of the nearby Santa Maria del Giglio served as a great landmark to navigate out way back after a day of exploring. We took the ferry from the airport and got off at San Marco. From there, even with our luggage it was, maybe, a 10 minute walk to the door. Unless you want to spend a lot of time in Cannaregio, the Teatro’s location can’t be beat. Literally half an hour or less to just about anything you’ll want to see in Venice. The house is clean and quiet. We opted to splurge on our room in Venice so we stayed in the Amber Room, Elenora’s largest room. The bed is comfortable. The bathroom is new in a euro-chic style, and the view off our tiny private balcony was delightful as the canal below is on the gondola route from the nearby San Moise station. Elenora is a proud Venetian eager to offer advice over breakfast after she makes your favorite form of caffeine. Breakfasts were simple but satisfying and abundant. Elenora was also very welcoming of our 9-year old daughter and provided a real bed for her in our room and even presented her with a going-away gift on our last morning.
After a lot of research ahead of time, we were extremely lucky with all our accommodations in Italy. The Teatro B&B is one of the less-reviewed places we stayed, so we had our fingers crossed, but were delighted to discover we’d made a fine choice.
