ABOVE: The Hotel Fontanamap markeris a short walk over level pavement from the San Zaccaria airport-boat stop.

The Hotel Fontana--a.k.a. the Casa Fontana--is a small, family-run three-star hotel on the Campo San Provolo, slightly inland from the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront and not far from the Piazza San Marco. (The campo is less of a square than a junction of several streets with restaurants where you can sit outdoors in good weather.)

There are several ways to reach the Hotel Fontana from the Alilaguna Blue Line airport-boat stop at San Zaccaria. We recommend this route, which is short and scenic with no bridges to cross:

  1. As you leave the boat station, head left and look for a covered passage just before the Hotel Savoia & Jolanda. The passage is called the "Sotoportego S. Zaccaria," and you'll see signs for the Ospedale (hospital) and the Carabinieri (police) above the opening.

  2.  Go through the passage, which will lead you into Campo San Zaccaria.

  3. Continue through the campo and turn left at the northwest corner.

  4. Walk a few meters and turn right at the next corner, where you'll find the Hotel Fontana.

Tip: Disregard the map on the hotel's own Web site, which has transportation information that is years out of date.

From the Marittima cruise terminals:

  1. Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the cruise basin to the San Zaccaria stop.

  2. Follow the directions above.

From the San Basilio cruise pier:

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

  2. Cross the bridge and walk to the vaporetto stop, which is just ahead.

  3. Take the No. 2 water bus in the direction of San Zaccaria.

  4. Get off at San Zaccaria and follow the directions above.
