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 (Hotel sites are often years out of date.)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.

a short walk from the Piazzale Roma,with one small bridge to cross. (The
People Mover to the Marittima
cruise basin is in the upper left corner of the map.) MAIN PHOTO: The private
patio of a double superior room at Alloggi Marinella.
Alloggi Marinella is on a quiet neighborhood street within a short walk
of the People Mover, airport buses, and taxis in Venice's busy Piazzale Roma.
We think it's a delightful place to stay (see
our review), especially if you book a superior double room with patio like
the one in the photo above.
How to reach Alloggi Marinella from the Piazzale Roma:
Walk toward the tree-lined side of the Piazzale Roma.
Continue through the trees to the water.
Turn right onto the fondamenta or sidewalk
along the canal.
A few meters ahead, you'll see a food kiosk just before the
Tre Ponti (three bridges). Bearing left to stay by the main canal, walk past the
food kiosk to the bridge.
Cross the bridge and walk straight ahead, past the
Arlecchino (another hotel that we recommend) and the restaurants along the
- Turn right at the next street, the tree-lined
Rio Terà dei Pensieri.
The Alloggi Marinella is just down the street on the left. Look for a yellow
building with an oval hanging sign.
From the railroad station:
As you leave the train station, turn right and follow the
crowd toward the modern Calatrava Bridge.
Cross the Calatrava Bridge (officially named the "Ponte
della Costituzione") to the Piazzale Roma, then follow the directions above.
From the Marittima cruise terminals:
Take the People Mover elevated tramway to the Piazzale Roma.
Once you're in the Piazzale Roma, follow the directions
