I’M SINGING IN THE RAIN
The sun's in my heart
And I'm ready for love.
This is the rhythm of a rainy day in Venice. The most beautiful city under the rain can really make you feel part of the nature: the ticking of the drops with the lapping of the canals and the voices of the gondoliers rowing and pronuncing the sound OE. This is the famous sound used by rowers as a warning when approching an intersection of canals or a curve.
Waking up in Venice, opening the windows and hearing the rain...
The greatest emotion is waking up in a room of our hotel and hearing the sound of the rain. Yes, because our city doesn't miss a beat neither with the rain, nobody backs down and, especially for tourists, it has that familiar atmosphere and also a lot of places to find shelter.

A two-step away museum: Querini Stampalia
An interesting indoor activity is visiting the museum Querini Stampalia. As luck would have it, it's situated right in Campo Santa Maria Formosa near our hotel, so you don't have to walk under the rain too much. The Querini Stampalia Foundation was born in the 1869, because the last descendant wanted to preserve the whole patrimony of the family.
Inside there's a library open until late night, an environment museum and an area for temporary exhibitions. The mission of this foundation is “promoting the culture of the good studies and useful disciplines”, so if you are thirsty of knowledge, this is the place for you!
