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 (Hotel sites are often years out of date.)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

airport-boat and ACTV vaporetto platforms.
is on the Grand Canal near the Rialto Bridge, on a stretch of fondamenta
or sidewalk where you can dine at outdoor waterside restaurants year-round. From the
hotel, it's a 15- or 20-minute walk to the Piazza San Marco and only a minute or
two to the Rialto food markets.
Reaching the Hotel Marconi from the Alilaguna Orange Line
airport-boat stop is simple, although it does require dragging or carrying your
suitcase over the Rialto Bridge.
How to reach the Hotel Marconi from the Rialto
Leave the boat station, turn left, and walk toward
the small bridge after the Palazzo Bembo.
Cross the small footbridge, go through the arcaded passage, and
continue to the Rialto Bridge.
Turn left and cross the Rialto Bridge. (Take the center staircase, which
is easier to navigate with luggage than the steps on either side.)
At the bottom of the Rialto Bridge, turn left immediately and walk
along the water.
The Hotel Marconi will be several buildings ahead of you,
facing the Grand Canal.
