Hotel AlaYou're looking for an attractive, moderately-priced hotel that's only a few minutes from Venice's prime sightseeing and shopping territory, but you'd prefer to be away from the crowds.

The Hotel Ala is a longtime favorite of guidebook authors and Venetophiles, thanks to its attractive setting and traditional Venetian atmosphere. It's also easy to reach, either on foot from the Giglio vaporetto stop (which is close by on the Grand Canal) or by water taxi.

(Other landmarks in the photo are the Campo San Stefano on the left and Venice's opera house, La Fenice, on the upper right.)

  • In the second photo, you can read the name "Ala" on the yellow building facing the square on the left, next to the Santa Maria del Giglio church.
