The stylish, elegant, five-star Hotel Centurion Palace is on the Grand Canal, a long way from the nearest airport-boat stop. Let's be realistic: Anyone who can afford a hotel of this class is likely to arrive by water taxi. Still, if you like walking, we'll be happy to provide directions from the Alilaguna Blue Line pier.

How to reach the Centurion Palace from the Zattere airport-boat stop:

  1. As you leave the floating boat pier, turn right and walk a reasonable distance along the waterfront. You'll need to cross two stone bridges: one just beyond the Hotel Calcina, and another after the pedestrian promenade begins curving noticeably.

  2. As you walk down the steps of the second bridge, go left onto the Fondamenta Fornace (a sidewalk next to a local canal) and walk inland.

  3. Keep walking straight ahead, past the Hotel Messner, until you reach a small bridge.

  4. Do not cross the bridge. Instead, turn right and walk until you see the Hotel Centurion Palace on your left. (It's a large, beautifully-restored palazzo with an impressive courtyard.)

From the San Basilio cruise pier:

It's a long walk from San Basilio to the Centurion Palace, but the pavement is level (except for several footbridges) and the walk shouldn't be difficult unless you're infirm or hauling large suitcases.

  1. Leave the terminal by the main doors and walk to the wooden bridge.

  2. Cross the bridge and continue walking along the waterfront, past the vaporetto stop and the Billa supermarket.

  3. You'll need to cross two more bridges: one just beyond the Hotel Calcina, and another after the pedestrian promenade begins curving noticeably.

  4. As you walk down the steps of the second bridge, go left onto the Fondamenta Fornace (a sidewalk next to a local canal) and walk inland.

  5. Keep walking straight ahead, past the Hotel Messner, until you reach a small bridge.

  6. Do not cross the bridge. Instead, turn right and walk until you see the Hotel Centurion Palace on your left. (It's a large, beautifully-restored palazzo with an impressive courtyard.)

From the Marittima cruise terminals:

  1. Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the cruise basin to the second stop (Zattere). The price will be about half of the fare to the airport.

  2. Get off at the Zattere stop and follow the first set of directions above.
