The Hotel/Pensione Accademia Villa Maravege has a loyal following among Venetophiles. The villa, which was a Russian consulate before World War II,  was used for several scenes in the 1955 David Lean film Summertime (starring Katherine Hepburn). It has 27 rooms, and breakfast is served in the garden during the summer months.

Aerial photos:

  • The top image shows the hotel's location. (Look for the garden overlooking a narrow canal just off the Grand Canal near the top of the frame.) To the right, within walking distance, are the Accademia waterbus stop, the massive Gallerie dell'Accademia art museum, and the Accademia Bridge that crosses the Grand Canal to San Marco. To the south, at the bottom of the photo, is the Zattere pedestrian promenade along the Giudecca Canal.

  • In the second image, you can enjoy a better view of the hotel and its garden, which are in the upper part of the photo. (From the garden and some of the hotel's rooms, guests can see the Grand Canal between two palazzi.)
