So my wife and I decided to go to Venice during our vacation in Florence and Tuscany. We had a rental car and wanted to find a last minute reasonably priced bed and breakfast close to Venice (rather than staying at a typical overpriced commercial hotel in/around Venice). The Frommer's guide mentioned Villa Ducale as a nice option so we went for it and couldn't be happier with the decision. The rooms were a nice size with classic Italian decor and views of a manicured courtyard/garden. It was so quiet/comfortable in the room that we overslept and missed the scheduled breakfast BUT the staff was so accommodating that they insisted we sit for a nice private breakfast and served us all the homemade pastries and cheeses, cold cuts, etc. A terrific experience overall.
