Venice has welcomed travelers for nearly 1,500 years.
The city of Venice actually consists of several small islands separated by waterways and canals, and joined by bridges and watercraft. Because it has attracted visitors for 1,500 years, it boasts many lodgings like the Hotel Locanda Conterie.
The Locanda Conterie is a small bed and breakfast with only nine rooms and an outdoor eating patio. The interior is decorated in traditional Venetian style.
The hotel is located on Murano, an island that is famous for its glassmaking. The island is about 10 minutes by boat from the center of Venice, the Piazza San Marco.
As of March 2010, standard double rooms start at 64 euros for the nonrefundable rate. A quadruple room costs 140 euros.
The nonsmoking guest rooms include air conditioning, private baths, TVs and bidets. Breakfast can be included with a small charge.
Check for special offers online such as three nights for the price of two, or the 20 percent discount for advance payment.
