Walking directions to Hotel Al Sole (with map)
Sole is a 15th Century palazzo that overlooks a canal. Air
conditioning and other modern conveniences haven't taken away from the
family-owned hotel's authentic Venetian atmosphere.
How to reach Hotel Al Sole from Piazzale Roma:
- On the tree-lined side of the Piazzale Roma, look for the central path
that leads toward the water.
A canal is just beyond the trees. Continue straight ahead
over the stone footbridge.
Follow the curving path through the greenery on the other
side of the bridge and continue just past the Hotel Papadopoli Venezia to a
small bridge over the Tolentini Canal.
Cross the bridge and turn right onto the Fondamenta
Tolentini. Walk to the next corner.
At the corner, turn left onto the Fondamenta Minotto.
The Hotel Al Sole is a short distance along the
fondamenta. (Look for a palazzo with the flag of the Venetian Republic
and a bridge in front.)
