Oltre Il Giardino--once the private home of Alma Mahler, widow of composer Gustav Mahler--is quiet, gracious, and timeless. The property sits right at the edge of a canal, so you can take a private water taxi to the front door. It's also a 15 minute walk from the train station, with a good map. And the continental buffet breakfast was excellent!
