We were delighted with our accommodation. Fabio was most helpful and generous with his time. The location was great because it was very close to the train station and the water taxi which took us to the airport. Breakfast was generous and coffee was good.
This is a great find. Fabio the owner is relaxed and very helpfull.
The room was clean with all you could want from a B&B. His mother was very hospitable and our stay there was relaxed and easy. This place is just 50 meters from...More
Fabulous B & B and not just because Fabio owned it. We stayed 3 nights. It is very well located only 5 to 10 minutes from the railway station. It was in a quiet area with a view of the canal, even from our room...More
The Guglie was all we hoped it would be, a lovely view of the canal from our room, clean and well appointed. We were welcomed by Fabio who took our cases up and gave us a map and some info on Venice. Breakfast was fine...More
Le Guglie offers excellent value for money in an expensive city. Great location - 5 minutes walk from the train station and in a really lovely local neighbourhood (edge of the Jewish quarter). Lots of excellent bars and restaurants on the door step (away from...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
