The B&B Le Repubbliche Marinare
is located in an old flat which was restored by a well-known Venetian
architect of the Sixties, whose style has been perfectly kept even
if the flat has recently been redecorated. The entrance is through
a detached door and a flight of marble steps. From the large salon
you get to the kitchen and the dining room, and to the parlour and
the pretty terrace overlooking the market where, in spring and summer,
you can enjoy your breakfast.
The large rooms, furnished in a modern, basic and comfortable style,
are all overlooking the quiet Calle dei Boteri which leads to the
Grand Canal just opposite Ca’ D’Oro.
Here, in the very heart of the ancient city, in the original centre
of its economic and mercantile transactions, of its Fonteghi and
its ancient palaces, you can witness every morning the lively and
fretful activities around the fish market and the stalls where you
can buy the fruit and vegetables coming from the still agricultural
islands around the lagoon.
Surrounded by little shops selling local products, by arts and
craft workshops, and old bacari and little restaurants, you will
enjoy the special experience of feeling a bit of a Venetian for
a short time.
And it will take you a short time to reach, by boat or simply walking,
all the main celebrated attractions of the city.
