LOCATION: Venice, Italy
Finding inexpensive accommodation in Venice is difficult. We found this great hotel, Hotel Pensione Guerrato on Hotels.com. It costs more than we usually pay, but with Hotels.com rebates, it wasn’t too bad.
It is in a great location, right next to the Rialto Market. In front of our hotel’s water bus stop is a temporary art installation….
Imagine to our great surprise, that when we checked in that we found out that Rick Steves has stayed here and regularly books his tour groups here. This book was conveniently placed in the lobby…
I feel a bond with Rick, as we are the same age, and both started traveling in Europe at the same time.
The hotel was built in 1288. It is not for everyone…..our room is on the 5th floor with no elevator!
