About these Venice hotel pages:
We've included customized Google maps that you can zoom, rotate, or drag for better views.
If you see a conflict between our directions and a hotel's, rely on ours. (Hotel sites are often years out of date.) Ditto for maps: Our icons are hand-placed for accuracy, while GPS-based labels can be off by a street or more.

Walking directions to
Locanda Alla Vite Dorata
Powered by iMapBuilder
ABOVE: The Locanda Alla Vite Doratais
easy to reach on foot from the Alilaguna airport boat's stop at Fondamente Nove,
if you don't mind crossing several small bridges along the way.
Vite Dorata is a first-class locanda or inn in the Santi Apostoli
quarter of Cannaregio, between the Fondamente Nove (Venice's northern
waterfront) and the Rialto Bridge.
The inn's six guest rooms are decorated in a
contemporary Venetian style, and--unusually for Venice--one of the rooms is
fully accessible to guests with wheelchairs. (All rooms are air-conditioned,
with free Wi-Fi Internet.)
If you're coming from Venice's Marco Polo Airport, the easiest way to reach
Locanda Alla Vite Dorata is to take the
Alilaguna Blue Line airport
boat to Fondamente Nove. (Late in the evening, some Orange Line boats also stop at F. Nove.)
Below, you'll find our directions for walking to the hotel
from platform "B" at Fondamente Nove), which is used by Alilaguna Linea Blu
airport boats. If you're coming from platform "A" (used by Linea Arancio boats),
you can eliminate step 1 and
begin with step 2.
As you leave the pier, turn right, cross the footbridge, and
walk a short distance to boat platform "A."
Just after platform "A," look for a narrow street on your
left: the Salizada dei
Spechieri. Follow the street inland past the Gesuiti Church and through the
Campo dei Gesuiti to a canal.
At the canal, cross the bridge in front of you and continue straight ahead on
the Salizada Seriman.
Bear right at the canal, cross the bridge, and continue on the Salizada
L. Borgato until you
reach a newsstand.
Turn right onto the Rio Terà Barba Frutariol and walk
a couple of blocks to the Alla Vite Dorata, which is just before a canal.
