Until 1300 Venice was the most important merchant port in Europe.
There were regular sailings from Venice to just about everywhere, especially for the ports of northern Europe and the Black Sea.
The 'Albergarie' grew up in order to accommodate the travellers to and from Venice's shores, amongst them the hotel then known as the 'Albergaria Al Gallo'.
A famous travel guide of 1495 recorded the Al Gallo as one of the best guesthouses in Venice at that time. It was here that Ambassadors, Nobles and the Courtiers to the King would stay, along with Heads of Government, when visiting the Republic of Venice.
The Al Gallo you find today is a newly renovated family guesthouse , the decor in typically Venetian style; perfect for a quiet and long-planned vacation, equipped with all the comforts.
The rooms are spacious and each has bathroom, colour tv, hair dryer, telephone, safe, air conditioning, and minibar.
