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 (Hotel sites are often years out of date.)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

ABOVE: The Hotel Giorgioneis inland
from the Fondamente Nove stop of Alilaguna's Blue Line airport boat (top of map).
Giorgione is a popular and well-regarded four-star hotel in Cannaregio, near
the Santi Apostoli Church and about a quarter of a mile from the Rialto Bridge.
The hotel's 76 rooms are furnished in traditional Venetian style, and the
palazzo theme extends the Giorgione's courtyard, where breakfast and
afternoon tea are served around the large fountain in good weather.
From Marco Polo Airport, you can take the Alilaguna Blue Line
airport boat to Fondamente Nove and walk to the hotel. (Alilaguna's Orange Line
boats also stop at Fondamente Nove late in the evening.) You'll need to cross
several bridges, but the bridges are low and should be manageable with all but
the heaviest luggage.
Below, you'll find our directions for walking to the hotel
from platform "B" at Fondamente Nove), which is used by Alilaguna Linea Blu
airport boats. If you're coming from platform "A" (used by Linea Arancio boats),
you can eliminate step 1 and
begin with step 2.
As you leave the pier, turn right, cross the footbridge, and
walk a short distance to boat platform "A."
Just after platform "A," look for a narrow street on your
left: the Salizada dei Spechieri.
Walk inland on the Salizada Spechieri, past the Gesuiti
Church to the Campo dei Gesuiti.
You'll see a bridge ahead of you. Cross the bridge and
continue along the Salizada Seriman to the next canal.
At the canal, bear right slightly and cross the bridge.
Continue walking down the Salizada L. Borgato.
Cross the next bridge and walk straight ahead on the Rio Terà
SS. Apostoli until you reach the Calle Larga dei Proverbi.
Turn right onto the Calle Larga dei Proverbi, where you'll
find the hotel entrance at the next corner.
