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 (Hotel sites are often years out of date.)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

easy to reach from Alilaguna's Blue Line airport-boat stop at Fondamente Nove.
Casa Boccassini (or simply the "Hotel Boccassini," as the sign in

To reach the Hotel Boccassini by water from Marco Polo Airport,
take the Alilaguna Blue Line water bus to Fondamente Nove. (Late in the evening,

As you leave the Alilaguna pier, turn left and walk to the stone
Cross the bridge and continue along the waterfront to the Calle Buranelli.
Turn right onto the Calle Buranelli, which will run into the
Calle del Fumo. Continue walking inland.
When you reach a cross street named the Calle del Volto (inset
photo), look for the hotel entrance, which will be just off to your right.
