Al Sole Palace
Ever since I saw a picture of this hotel I wanted to stay here. A historic hotel in the heart of old Venice, overlooking a little canal with a bridge, away from the hustle and bustle of the Grand Canal with its associated noise and vaporeti fumes.

Unique Qualities: Hotel Al Sole was once called Palazzo Marcello and belonged to a Patrician family which, over the centuries, provided Venice with its most illustrious players on the political artistic and economic stage. Built in the sixteenth century, this splendid Palazzo faces the Tolentini canal and was home to Benedetto Marcello (1686-1739) the famous composer renowned as the prince of Venetian music.

Address: Santa Croce 136 Fondamenta Minotto, Venice, VE 301
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Santa Croce 136 - 30135 Venice (Italy)
From the train station, cross the Grand Canal and turn right, walking down the street until the next bridge; turn left and walk on for approx. five minutes,
