SORRY I FORGOT THE HOTEL IN VENICE, HOTEL GALLERIA.<BR>THANKS,<BR>DIANE

The Casci is an excellent value and I think you'll enjoy it. Be sure to ask for a quiet room on the courtyard so you don't end up facing the street. M.

marilyn,<BR>What did the rooms look like, did you like where the hotel was located? I've been to the web sight but I'd rather hear from someone who stayed there. Its our first time, thanks for answering.<BR>Diane

Book your Venice hotel, the Hotel Galleria NOW ! It's a small hotel, only 10 rooms. A good value for the price, excellent location. I don't know if they have any quads. I think you'll be better off with 2 rooms.<BR>

Please do not write all your sentences in shrieking CAPITAL LETTERS.

fti,<BR>I did not realize I had my caps on. If you read on you would have seen that I corrected the problem. If you did not have an answer to my questions why did you answer, just to be mean? Thanks to all of you who are willing to help us new ones.<BR>Diane

diane Oct 1st, 2002 10:43 AM

Tess,<BR>Did you stay at the Hotel Galleria? If so did you book on line or call?<BR>Thanks,<BR>Diane

curious Oct 1st, 2002 11:08 AM

Are you and your friends attractive? Be glad to meet up in Venice over that timespan!! :)

Paula Oct 1st, 2002 11:15 AM

Diane,<BR>When in Florence, you must go to a restaurant called La Gioistra Club at Borga Pinti 10 Red Via Del Orivolo. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere lovely, but you will see what I mean about the real treat there!!!

Diane,<BR><BR>I stayed at the Hotel Galleria for couple days in Oct-2000. I booked on-line with them. I think you just send an email with your request. Their website is www.hotelgalleria.it. Do be aware they ask for a credit card to hold your reservation, however only accept payment in cash.<BR><BR>Their accommadations are simple. No elevator. Some rooms have a bathroom & a few others share a bathroom on the hallway --- and that shared bathroom was kept very clean & tidy. If you can't get reservations here, then I'd suggest you look into a convent (sorry, can't recall its' name) that's also supposed to be a good value for staying in Venice. I know I've seen the place discussed on this forum and did walk by the convent when I was in Venice.<BR>

Tess,<BR>I will e-mail them after I talk to the girls. We have an italy dinner once a month to talk over the trip and eat and drink. What was the view like? Did they have a room for 4 or only doubles? How many floors do we have to walk up if no elevator?<BR><BR>This is for Paula everyone wants to know what the treat is at the club, they have guessed everything from half naked men waiters to strippers, give us a clue.<BR>Thanks <BR>Diane

Tess Oct 1st, 2002 12:45 PM

Diane,<BR><BR>You get to see the whatever's traveling up/down the Grand Canal. If I recall correctly, I think it's only one flight of circular stairs. Also they do not have air-conditioning. I was there in October, and so that wasn't a problem. I don't think you'll need A/C in Venice during June, but I'll defer to others who've been there at that time of year.<BR>

diane Oct 2nd, 2002 05:18 AM

Tess, thanks for the infomation.<BR>Does anyone know the hotel casci ,or residenza san pantaleo?<BR>I can't thank-you guys enough.<BR>Diane

Try visitorinitaly.com we had 5 of us, and it was cheaper to rent an apartment in rome and florence than a hotel. Plus it had more atmosphere. 3 night minimum is all you need, worked out to 115.00 per night plus kitchen, 2 bedrooms, patio etc.

another hotel possibility for Venice that has a room for 4, hotel flora. it's a delightful place. The casci is a great place. if you book now you should be able to get what you want.

Paula Oct 2nd, 2002 02:15 PM

Diane,<BR>The "extra treats" are the owner/chef's twin sons. Not only are they drop-dead gorgeous, but sweet as can be.<BR>

diane Oct 2nd, 2002 02:21 PM

Paula,<BR>The girls and I have it on our list of places to go.<BR>Thanks <BR>Diane
