Hotel San Sebastiano Garden
ABOVE: The Hotel San Sebastiano Garden is on a canal near the San Basilio
cruise pier. INSET BELOW: The hotel's entrance and garden.
Location: A five-minute walk (at
most) from the San Basilio cruise terminal. Closest
Alilaguna Airport Boat
You're getting on or off a ship at the
pier, which is used by small to mid-size cruise vessels and
hydrofoil ferries to Croatia. (The San Sebastiano Garden is no more than
five minutes from the cruise terminal, with only one small wooden
footbridge to cross.)
Hotel San Sebastiano Garden is also convenient to public
transportation: It's only a couple of short blocks from the San Basilio vaporetto
stop, where you can catch a No. 2 water bus to the Piazza San Marco, the
Piazzale Roma, or the Santa Lucia railroad station. And if you don't
mind walking a moderate distance along the
Zattere, the wide pedestrian
promenade that runs along the Giudecca Canal, you can easily get to or
from the Zattere airport-boat landing.
The first image shows the San Basilio pier on the
left. Just to the right of the terminal, a small footbridge leads to
a vaporetto station (the platform that's connected by a
walkway to the pedestrian promenade). To reach the Hotel San
Sebastiano Garden, turn left into the street opposite the vaporetto
station, cross the square at the end of the street, and walk a few
meters along the canal to the hotel.
In the second photo, you can see
the Hotel San Sebastiano Garden across from the church that Google
has incorrectly labeled "Università Ca Foscari Di Venezia." The
hotel is right behind the word "San" in "Fondamenta San Sebastian."
