Court Yard at Al Cotega, Venice-If I was looking for this place, I probably would have never found it. Each time we visit Venice, our goal is to try to get lost in the deep dark corridors and back alleys and walkways, just to see where we end up. You can’t get to lost because Venice is pretty much like an island. Sooner or later you come out somewhere near the train station or the Rialto Bridge or San Marcos Square. This 4 star cottage hotel had one of the most colorful little courtyards. Geraniums were everywhere. Good thing I took a picture of the sign!
