Superbly located on the main street of Lido Island.

The Vaporetto stop is located one minute away and in 10 minutes you will be in Piazza San Marco, the principle square in Venice.

This breathtaking piazza with its famous outdoor orchestras, Basilica, Bell Tower and the even more famous pigeons is the epicentre of this marvellous unique city.

A short distance away is the Rialto Bridge - one of three bridges that cross the Grand Canal - which symbolises Venice’s commercial past.

Not to be missed is Palazzo Ducale, the former home of the Doges of the city that now houses one of the foremost collections of art in Italy.

As you walk the alleyways and cross the canals you will discover hidden treasures on every corner and gondoliers waiting to whisk you off on an unforgettable tour of Venice.
