We stayed at Residenza Cannaregio. The rooms are simple, but we loved them, because the family-style rooms are two level and we didn’t feel crowded, even when we hung out on a rainy afternoon. And the breakfast was good too!

My instincts are to stay in. I had to psyche up for the cold weather touring, but of course, felt like it was totally worth it in the end. : )

What a magical place, especially this time of year when the streets are empty (relatively speaking) and kind of spooky too. Enjoy getting lost, there is always something to be found.

Cheers! Nicky

They have flats and houses throughout Venice and were fantastic. I highly recommend them. We stayed at Ca’ Navagero Apt 2 and loved it. More reasonable for a large family than hotel rooms. We originally found them through homeaway.com but you can book directly with them as well. http://www.venietiam.com/Houses.aspx

Love the travel adventures….we are an Australian family living in Boston and plan to take our three kids to Europe this year. Would love to know where you are staying and would you recommend it?
Thanks and enjoy the trip,
Nicky
PS Lion Boy is another series set (in part) in Venice. Just finishing the trilogy with my 13 year old at the moment x

It takes place in Venice and is amazing!

We are currently living in China and it is cold, cold, cold right now too. We have a month off for winter break and Chinese New Year and I find myself wanting to put off some travels because it is too cold. Your trip to Venice reminded me that you take advantage of the time you have no matter the circumstances. We’ll definitely be planning some trips . . . cold weather or not! :)

I would love to go back and spend more time there, and I would especially love to take a glass-making class there. Enjoy the rest of your visit!
