Historical fun at the Gabrielli Sandwirth Hotel
 Dating from the 14th century, this 105-room hotel has been family-run since 1856. Find the Gabrielli Sandwirth Hotel on the quieter side of the San Marco promenade (yes, this actually exists!). Decorated in classic Venetian style, you can enjoy the private landing stage or simply gaze at the waterfront scenery. Look for the hotel’s handmade Murano glass chandeliers and the centuries-old marble. Two restaurants and one panoramic rooftop cocktail bar are also on site to keep you in the moment. Don't forget to enjoy a stroll in the garden with your camera!

Enjoy a stay the historical Hotel Ca’ Vendramin
 The Hotel Ca' Vendramin di Santa Fosca is simply gorgeous. Today, this 17th century residence and former home of nobleman Gabriele Vendramin is a four-star hotel. Looking like something out of a painting, the eleven-room hotel is decorated with antique furniture, original frescos, and Murano glass chandeliers. Don’t forget about the wood-beamed ceilings and modern touches, including rooms with anti-allergy materials and added assistance for the disabled. Nearby is the Basilica di San Giovanni e Paolo, St. Mary of the Friars and St. Mark's Basilica.

Historical fun at Hotel Centauro
 A stone's throw from St. Mark's Square is the three-star Hotel Centauro, found inside in a 16th century palace. A 5 minute walk from the water stop at Rialto Bridge, the hotel is near the La Fenice Opera House and Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, among other destinations. Enjoy the Venetian furnishings, which are done in the 18th century style and perfect for photographs. This is one of the few pet-friendly hotels around, asking for no extra charge to bring them along. There's also a supermarket and coffee shop nearby to start your day off right.

Historical fun at Hotel Arlecchino
 Another affordable choice to help you stay on a budget, the three-star Hotel Arlecchino has staff with excellent English. It's located right next to Piazza Roma, by the start of the Grand Canal, and a two-minute walk from the train station. Breakfast is included, and the Grecia & Oriente restaurant by the entrance offers an excellent lunch. Be aware that the elevator is rather small, so allow some time in getting to your room.QUOTE: Romantic, historic, and a World Heritage Site, Venice offers centuries of history to take in.
