Subject: Hotel in Venice (was: Italian Recommendations Wanted)
Dear Jim & Kathleen,

My parents & I spent a couple of nights last year at the Hotel Galleria ( in Venice. We would highly recommend it. It's really easy to get to -- just at the Accademia Bridge. It's about a half hour walk to Piazza San Marco -- assuming you're walking at a gaping pace as we were. Our room was probably a family room with a double bed and a single bed -- quite comfortable. En-suite bathroom. Best of all, we had two windows right on the Grand Canal. We spent all our down time hanging out the windows, watching the canal traffic. It was wonderful! The hotel is actually on the second floor of a centuries-old palazza. The cost was very reasonable for Venice.
