How to find self-service laundries in Venice's historic center.
Finding a laundromat in Venice isn't easy, but several Venetian self-service laundries do exist. In this article, we'll tell you about three modern and easy-to-use launderettes in Venice's historic center--one in the Cannaregio district near the Rialto Bridge, another on the Via Garibaldi east of Piazza San Marco , and a third just across the Scalzi Bridge from the Venice Santa Lucia Railroad Station. (You'll also find a laundromat on the Lido di Venezia, outside the historic center.)
is a fairly new self-service laundry on the Campo Santa Maria Nova, a pleasant neighborhoood square just north of the Miracoli Church in Venice's Cannaregio district. Business hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The laundromat is small, but its equipment is modern, with 10- and 14-Kg washing machines. Washop even has a dedicated dryer for "animals, shoes, and carpets." (We recommend drying your animals by hand and saving the dryer for their bedding.)
Reaching Washop is easy: Look for the Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Maracoli on your map, slightly north of the Rialto Bridge. The Campo Santa Maria Nova is practically next door, with Washop located in one corner of the square under a sign that reads "Calle del Spezier."
Theis in the sestiere or district of Castello, within a few blocks of the Riva degli Schiavoni and the Piazza San Marco.
The laundromat was open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily the last time we checked, and it has instructions in Italian and English that show how to use the machines.
Here's how to reach the Effe Erre Laundry:
From the Riva degli Schiavoni:
Look for the, a narrow street leading off the waterfront promenade behind the S. Zaccaria vaporetto stop.
Go inland and bear right until you reach a cross street where the Salizzada S. Provolo widens into the.
Cross the street and follow the Calle S. Provolo for a very short distance to the Corte Rotta, which will be on your left. Follow this street a few meters until it feeds into(also spelled "Ruga Giuffa"), where you'll soon see the laundromat on your left.
From the Campo Santa Maria Formosa:
Leave the campo at the southeast corner of the square, behind the back or curved end of the church.
When you cross the footbridge, you'll be on. Look for the laundromat on your right as you walk down the street.
Santa Croce: Orange Self-Service Lavanderia
The Orange Self-Service Lavanderia in Santa Croce is a short walk from Venice's railroad station. It's open from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. every day of the year.
The laundromat has 8-kg and 18-kg washers and large dryers. Instructions are in five languages, and a wash takes 30 minutes.
The Miti café and cocktail bar is two doors down. In nice weather, you can sit at an outdoor table across from the café and keep an eye on the laundromat while your clothes get washed. A snack bar that sells pizza by the slice is also nearby.
