Our experience was the same as "Jonty52012." We were 2 couples stranded in Venice without a hotel due to British Airways computer meltdown. Most hotels were booked, so we opted for Locanda Antica Venezia (a quick look at a couple of reviews looked promising...). One...More
Booked through an agency as needed a room for the night due to British Airways cancelling my flight home. Very expensive, so was disappointed to find the room was not en-suite. Difficult to find the place as it is situated down an alley way and...More

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
