Ai Tagliapietra is one of the best B&Bs to stay in when you visit Venice. It was our first stay in any B&B and Ai Tagliapietra has probably set a very high benchmark for others to follow.
The B&B is located very close to the main vaporetto stop of San Zacharia - that's where we got off in Venice on our way in from the airport. Our affable and informative host Lorenzo was waiting for us and quickly escorted us through the cobblestone paths to the B&B. He has a cheerful personality and helps you feel comfortable very quickly. He is also very well informed and can guide you on practically every aspect on Venice - from sightseeing to shopping to getting around to dining out.
Ai Tagliapietra is barely 5 minutes by walk from Piazza San Marco and the Bridge of Sighs. Venice itself is quite small and it's easy to get around to most places walking anyway. The room (we stayed in) was nice and comfortable. We didn't really have a view but we weren't expecting any either. The kitchen was well stocked and we had no complaints whatsoever on any front.
We haven't had enough of Venice and will be going back soon. Ai Tagliapietra is where we plan to stay when we do. I hope that speaks more about the place than anything else I have mentioned.More
