If you want to experience “another side” of Venice and still be within 15 minutes of Piazza San Marco, the Ca Pisani might be a good choice. Located in a peaceful area in Dorsoduro on the other side of the canal, you will be close to the Accademia and art galleries, to Santa Maria Salute Basilica, and will enjoy a quieter Venetian lifestyle. This hotel has modern facilities with a trendy and fashionable décor, not easily found in town, and typical Venetian style exteriors. We found the complimentary aperitivo offered in the afternoons very agreeable and the staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable with excellent beds, cozy décor and modernized bathrooms. Some of the corner rooms are more spacious, try to get one if possible. The nearby vaporetto stop and also the Accademia bridge facilitate moving around and if you like walking you will able to explore the whole of Venice whilst staying in a less touristic part of town.
