ABOVE: Il Mercante di Veneziamap markeris just east of Santa Lucia Railroad Station, in a quiet side street off the main pedestrian route to the Piazza San Marco.

The three-star Hotel il Mercante di Venezia (in English, "The Merchant of Venice Hotel") is less than a five-minute walk from the stazione and another two or three minutes from airport buses and taxis in the Piazzale Roma. Unlike some of its competitors, it charges guests for Wi-Fi, so it isn't the best place to stay if you're traveling with a smartphone, tablet, or laptop.

How to reach the Hotel il Mercante di Venezia from Santa Lucia Railroad Station:

  1. Leave the railroad station by the marble steps outside the main doors, or by the easy-to-miss (and conveniently stair-free) side exit if you have rolling luggage, a stroller, or a wheelchair.
  1. When you reach the wide fondamenta or pavement in front of the station, turn left.

  2. Walk past the Scalzi Church and the Scalzi Bridge toward the Lista di Spagna (a busy pedestrian thoroughfare).

  3. Continue on the Lista di Spagna and walk past the Hotel Adua to the Calle della Misericordia, which will be on your left.

  4. Turn left into the Calle della Misericordia. The Mercante di Venezia is just up the narrow street.

From the Piazzale Roma:

  1. Look for the Calatrava Bridge (a.k.a. the Ponte della Costituzione). It's the large modern bridge at the northeast corner of the square, next to the Hotel Santa Chiara.

  2. Cross the bridge and continue straight ahead, past the large building on your left, to the train station.

  3. From the station, follow the directions above.

From the Marittima cruise terminals:

  1. Take a shuttle bus, a taxi, or the People Mover to the Piazzale Roma.

  2. Follow the directions above.
