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 (Hotel sites are often years out of date.)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 a pair of blue airplane icons.
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 "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. Follow the street inland past the Gesuiti Church and through the
Campo dei Gesuiti to a canal.
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
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.
