Most of our readers have probably been to Venice and know more about it than we do. All I can say is that we loved it every bit as much as anyone we've talked to. We stayed in a great place right in the middle of everything. 10 minutes from St. Mark's square, 10 minute walk from the Rialto bridge, and just 2 minute walk to where the water bus #2 picks you up and takes you along the Grand Canal to the train station.
How did we find this place? Because of Facebook. Our friend, Marie, was visiting Venice just the week before - that would have been so great if we could have met up, but such was not the case. We did contact her though and asked where she was staying and if she recommended it. Yes, and Yes!
A hotel named San Samuele. What a find! Thanks Marie.

The rest of the story is told in pictures.

You get off the train, walk thru the station and see the Grand Canal - the main thoroughfare of the city. This iconic sight brought tears to my eyes. It is a fairy tale. And we are here.

One day's walk as recorded by Google Maps. 

Yep! We went kayaking! See
