'How Many Bridges to Cross?' Hotel Listings

Easy-to-reach hotels, grouped by area and convenience to transportation.

See: Locations Index

Calatrava Bridge in VeniceThis directory lists handpicked hotels in central Venice that are of decent quality, and that are easy to reach from Alilaguna airport-boat stops, airport buses, the railroad station, and cruise ships.

In a city with more than 400 footbridges, these hotels are well worth considering if you're traveling with heavy luggage and don't want to wrestle your bags up and down steps.

How to use these listings:

  1. Pick a location from the locations index below.

  2. On each location page, you'll see listings of hotels and how many bridges they are from transportation. Click on a hotel name, and you'll be taken to a page from our Venice Hotel Directions guide with a hotel description, photo, step-by-step walking directions, map, and booking link.

Tip: For a better idea of what you'll encounter as you walk, see our illustrated article about the Bridges of Venice, Italy.
