Forgot how many rooms the LO has but there sure seems to be a lot of us staying there I think I counted 9 rooms already booked and I may have missed some people.

Barbara, Gigi and the rest of the gang at L.O. might have lots of takers who would be willing to camp out just to have the breakfasts there .

Unfortunately, our experience has been that nothing is inexpensive in Venice. On the other hand, it's such a wonderful place!

100% correct; very expensive but so worth the cost. Venice is the most magical city in the world (IMHO).....

Bev,

We, too, will be there 3 nights pre-cruise. As soon as we saw the date of the TA, we booked as our friends who have previously stayed there warned us how quickly they book up. How true is that! We've never been to Venice, and this has always been a "dream" for us.

I know that this has to be getting close to everyone . My hotel only has 9 rooms and I can't believe the Locanda has many more. You guys need to get a group rate!
