Venice was the last stop on my week in Italy.  I took the train from Florence and was seated in first class seats for about a two hour trip.  The train ride was a simple process and comfortable way to travel.  If you are traveling without a group I recommend adding services so you can have help with your luggage getting onto the train.  When I arrived in Venice I was met by my guide and taken to the private water taxi.

Ca’Sagredo– One of my two favorites in Venice the Ca’Sagrego is located close to St. Marks Square. This museum of a hotel is in a great location for shopping and is located directly across from a market.  On Saturdays the chef takes small groups of guests to the market.

The Cipriani was closed at the time of our visit being that it was in November but never the less we got a good feel of why this is such a top selling property.

Londra Palace– If you don’t want the price tag of the Danieli but like the location on the Grand Canal the Londra Palace is an excellent choice right next door.  Just finishing a huge renovation while we were visiting the rooms look fantastic.
