Upgrade from ordinary seaside resorts to La Calcina, with breezy roof-garden breakfasts, a canal-dock restaurant, and panoramas of Palladio's Redentore church across Giudecca Canal. Antique armoires and brocade bedspreads come standard with airy, parquet-floored guestrooms. Bathrooms are clean though tired and uninspiring. Book ahead for waterfront rooms – especially No 2, where John Ruskin wrote his classic (though inexplicably Palladio-bashing) 1876 The Stones of Venice.
