Hotels and Period Houses in Venice Italy

Venice Italy is probably one of the most romantic places to be in and apart from its historic and artistic structures, there is just something about Venice that can make a person gaze at the city with awe.  It may be the small streets with no vehicles, or the canals dominated by gondolas, or the antique houses where modernized structures don’t belong, or maybe just the breath taking view when you stroll along the waterfront, whatever it is that captures many who visit and keeps them coming back for more, is really something worth experiencing.

In the fall, especially the months of October and November, the rising water of the lakes due to high tides, causes an overflow on the banks and canals that floods the city’s alleyways, churches, shops, and ground floor of houses.  Although Venetians consider this a problem, it is an unusual, thrilling experience for tourists and is a unique event.  Seeing the city in a different “flooded” point of view, is something to add to that list of memorable experience, after all seeing the Piazza San Marco flooded by a still lake of water is most certainly an exceptional, magical moment that has been celebrated by famous photographers over the years.

Choosing your lodging in this amazing place is never a problem as you can pick from one of the hotels in Venice Italy of all classes depending on your needs, or choose from bed and breakfast establishments or room rentals and period houses.  Here are some of the great hotels in Venice Italy:
