Hotel MessnerThe two-star Hotel Messner is east and slightly south of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in an artsy, upscale section of Dorsoduro.

The hotel is a good place to escape the crowds during the summer months, although the location may seem quiet if you're a party animal.

How to reach the Hotel Messner from the Zattere airport-boat stop:

Hotel Messner map directions

  1. As you leave the Alilaguna Linea Blu pontoon at Zattere, turn right and walk a reasonable distance along the waterfront. You'll need to cross two stone bridges: one just beyond the Hotel Calcina, and another after the pedestrian promenade begins curving noticeably.

  2. As you walk down the steps of the second bridge, go left onto the Fondamenta Fornace (a sidewalk next to a local canal) and walk inland.

  3. Keep walking straight ahead until you reach the Hotel Messner.

From the San Basilio cruise pier:

It's a long walk from San Basilio to the Hotel Messner, but the pavement is level (except for three footbridges) and the walk shouldn't be difficult unless you're infirm or hauling large suitcases.

  1. Leave the terminal by the main doors and walk to the wooden bridge.

  2. Cross the bridge and continue walking along the waterfront, past the vaporetto stop and the Billa supermarket.

  3. You'll need to cross two more bridges: one just beyond the Hotel Calcina, and another after the pedestrian promenade begins curving noticeably.

  4. As you walk down the steps of the second bridge, go left onto the Fondamenta Fornace (a sidewalk next to a local canal) and walk inland.

  5. Keep walking straight ahead until you reach the Hotel Messner.

From the Marittima cruise terminals:

  1. Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the cruise basin to the second stop (Zattere). The price will be about half of the fare to the airport.

  2. Get off at the Zattere stop and follow the first set of directions above.
