Walking directions to Hotel Abbazia (with map)

The three-star, 50-room Hotel Abbazia is extremely popular with guests, and for good reason: It's close to the railroad station with no bridges to cross, and it occupies a former monastery with a private garden and a pulpit in the lobby (which once served as the abbey's dining room).

How to reach the Hotel Abbazia from Santa Lucia Railroad Station:

  1. Leave the station by the front steps, or by the easy-to-miss (and stair-free) side exit if you have rolling luggage, a stroller, or a wheelchair.
  1. When you reach the wide fondamenta or pavement in front of the station, turn left.

  2. Walk past the Scalzi Church and the Scalzi Bridge toward the Lista di Spagna (a busy pedestrian thoroughfare).
