HOTEL: Charming House DD724

A small boutique hotel in the best area of Venice: Dorsoduro. Next door to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.



RESTAURANT: Trattoria "Ai Cugnai"

Who says you cannot eat well in Venice: fresh food, freshly cooked, reasonable prices!
Very popular with New Yorkers, not sure why.



SHOPPING!!!
