We went to Venice for a long weekend in May – we arrived in down pours. The Grand Canal had flooded and we spent ages looking for our hotel in pouring rain. Looking back know it sounds funny, but we were cold, wet and lost and not impressed.
We found our hotel, we were staying at The Boscolo Hotel Bellini –
“Found in an elegant palace that dates back to the ‘700’s, the Boscolo Hotel Bellini has been changed to a hotel since the beginning of the century. The interiors of the hotel are decorated with glass lamps from Murano, antique marble and many decorations dating back to the luxurious ‘700’s, a noble time period in Venice.
The Hotel looks directly onto the Grand Canal and is found just minutes from the breathtaking San Marco Square, where visitors will find numerous stores, restaurants and attractions”
This was one of our first independent city breaks using Ryanair from our local airport London Stansted. Venice is lovely when it has blue skies, but I just remember the rain. I did want to try a gondola but never got the chance. Maybe one day we return to Venice but who knows !
