Ca' Nigra Lagoon Resort and private garden

Ca' Nigra tables by Grand CanalThe four-star Ca' Nigra Lagoon Resort is one of three noteworthy hotels on the Campo San Simeon Grande (a.k.a. the Campo San Simeon Profeta). Its large private garden faces the Grand Canal, with outdoor tables alongside the water.

From the train station, the Ca' Nigra is only a five-minute walk--or maybe seven to eight minutes, if you walk more slowly than we do.

How to reach the Ca' Nigra Lagoon Resort from Santa Lucia Railroad Station:

  1. Leave the station by the front steps, or by the easy-to-miss (and stair-free) side exit if you have rolling luggage, a stroller, or a wheelchair.

  2. Turn left and walk a few meters to the Scalzi Bridge, which arches over the Grand Canal just to the left of the station.

  3. Cross the Scalzi Bridge and continue straight ahead, past the Mephisto shoe shop and down a narrow street.

  4. Turn left at the next corner.

  5. Continue to the low bridge up ahead, cross it, and walk to the church of San Simeone Profeta.

  6. Bear left and continue around the church.

  7. You'll enter a short arcaded passage that leads into the Campo San Simeon Grande. The Ca' Nigra Lagoon Resort is a red building on the left side of the square, behind a garden wall.

(For photos of the route, see the illustrated directions from the train stations in our review of another hotel on the Campo San Simeon Grande. Due Fanali.)

From the Piazzale Roma:

For a better view of this route, use your mouse or cursor to drag the map. (The walk takes about 10 minutes, or a bit longer if you're not in a hurry.)

  • Head for the tree-lined side of the Piazzale Roma.

  • Look for a pedestrian path between two rows of news, food, and souvenir stalls. Walk straight ahead to the low stone bridge.

  • Cross the bridge and turn left immediately. (Do not continue straight ahead on the flagstone path.)

  • Walk along the fondamenta (the sidewalk by the canal), which will curve and lead you past the park to another canal with a small bridge.

  • Cross the small bridge and keep walking until you reach the Mephisto shoe store.

  • Turn right and follow directions 3 to 6 in our railroad-station directions above.

(For photos of the route, see the illustrated directions from the Piazzale Roma in our Hotel Ai Due Fanali review.)

  • Note: Alternatively, you can cross the Calatrava Bridge (Ponte della Costituzione) from the Piazzale Roma, walk a few meters to the train station, and follow our directions from the railroad station. We suggest following the directions above instead, because the Scalzi Bridge by the train station is higher and has more steps than the low bridges on our recommended route.

From the Marittima cruise terminals:

  1. Take a free shuttle bus (if available), a taxi, or the People Mover elevated tramway to the Piazzale Roma. (The glass-walled People Mover station is just outside the port entrance.)

  2. Follow the directions from the Piazzale Roma above.
