Walking the streets of Venice, Italy is unlike any other experience I have ever had. It is like a movie set, with the amazing cathedrals, small alleys, beautiful shops, lively squares and of course the canal running through middle with gondolas and boats aplenty. We stayed in Venice at the Hotel Principe in the Cannaregio district, about a 15 minute walk from St. Marks Square. The hotel offers all the elegance and formality of the more famous hotels in the St Marks area, including a private dock and views of the Grand Canal. We were concerned that the distance from St. Marks might be a problem, but found that we loved the area, and had no trouble walking or traveling by water taxi conveniently from the back of the hotel. This hotel is a great choice for travelers looking for elegance at a reasonable price in one of Europe’s most amazing cities.
