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 (Hotel sites are often years out of date.)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 Locanda Novois between the Fondamente
Nove (top of map) and the Grand Canal. The most convenient airport-boat stop is
Fondamente Nove, which is represented by the blue airplane icon.
Novo is a "Town House Suites" property, which is an Italian hotel category for "inn"
or "bed and breakfast." The Locanda is in the sestiere or district of
Cannaregio, near the eastern end of the Strada Nova (one of Venice's busiest
shopping streets) and not too far from the Rialto Bridge. Its nine rooms are up
four flights of stairs, so it probably shouldn't be your first choice if you're
unfit or traveling with a steamer trunk.
Below, you'll find our directions for walking to the hotel from platform "A" (the
first, or farthest west, of the waterbus platforms at Fondamente Nove), which is
used by Alilaguna Linea Arancio boats. If you're coming from platform "B" (used
by Linea Blu boats), you'll first need to walk north along the water from "B" to
As you leave the pier, look for the Salizada
Spechieri. This is a street just to the right of the pier.
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 down the Salizada L. Borgato.
Cross the next bridge and walk straight ahead on the Rio Terà
SS. Apostoli .
Just beyond a cross street, the Calle Larga dei Proverbi, you'll
reach a small square behind the church of SS Apostoli.
Look for the Calle dei Preti in the northwest corner of the square,
before the church. The Locanda Novo is in the Calle dei Preti at no. 4529.
