Pensione La Calcina Venice, Italy

“Charming and often fully booked romantic pension converted with style and flair, where Ruskin used to stay during his visits. Classic rooms feature parquet flooring and antiques. Some have great views of the Giudecca canal. Breakfast can be enjoyed al fresco overlooking the city. A Venetian dream.”

“Superb value, wonderful hotel. The owners have preserved the atmosphere of the simple pensione where Ruskin stayed, with a homely dining room and a kind welcome, plus the recent addition of a café/restaurant, La Piscina, on a fabulous floating terrace in front of the hotel. Bedrooms are calm and uncluttered; best are the four corner ones with views on two sides. And there’s an intimate altana (roof terrace), just for two.”

La Calcina

"Situated on the Zattere – the wide pavement on the Venice side of the Giudecca canal – La Calcina offers views second only to those over the Grand Canal … some people would say better."
