Like most good B&Bs, what you’ll remember most about Ca’ Barba is the host, Alessandro, who will usually meet you at the Rialto vaporetto stop, inspire your daily wanderings with tips, maps and books, and provide fresh breads and pastries from the local bakery for breakfast. Of the four rooms (advance reservations essential), no. 201 is the largest and brightest, with a Jacuzzi tub (202 also has one). All rooms come with en suite bathrooms, antique furniture, 19th-century paintings of Venice, wood-beamed ceilings, LCD TVs, air conditioning and strong Wi-Fi.
