Join us on a Knitting retreat to Venice 10-14 July 2017 with Jane Crowfoot!

We have managed to book the wonderful Hotel Locanda San Barnaba in July 2017 for 4 nights.  The Hotel is wonderfully well positioned, in the Dosodouro district, which isn’t too tripperish, very near to vaporetto stops, and within walking distance of all the great sights.  We’ll be knitting in the salon and the garden terrace. The Hotel is air Porta-dacqua2conditioned.

You can get flights to Venice (Marco Polo) from various UK airports, nearly all below £100 return, so we’re not including flights. However, we will give detailed guidance on how to get to the Hotel. It’s a really easy  journey (boat ride from the airport) and then just a very short walk to the Hotel).
