Walking directions to Alle Guglie B&B (with map)

The Alle Guglie B&B (not to be confused with the three-star Hotel Alle Guglie nearby) has only only one guest room: a bedroom with a queen-size bed with a private balcony and a bathroom next door. If you're lucky enough to get accommodation, you'll share the rest of the apartment with your host.

The bed-and-breakfast is a short walk from the Alilaguna and ACTV water buses at Guglie, and less than 800 meters or half a mile from the Santa Lucia railroad station.

How to reach Alle Guglie B&B from the Guglie airport-boat stop (Alilaguna Linea Arancio):

Alle Guglie B&B directions map

  1. As you leave the boat platform, turn right.

  2. Walk to the Ponte delle Guglie (a stone bridge that spans the Cannaregio Canal). Turn left at the foot of the bridge.

  3. Walk a short distance, past several storefronts, to the Calle Magazen, which will be on your left. The B&B is on the top floor of the building at no. 1308. (Ring the doorbell for the B&B at the building entrance, or let the owner know your arrival time and he'll meet you at the boat stop.)

From the Santa Lucia Railroad Station:

ABOVE: This map shows the route from Venezia Santa Lucia Railroad Station to the Ponte delle Guglie on the Cannaregio Canal. Walking time is 5 to 10 minutes over level ground.

  1. Leave the railroad station by the marble steps outside the main doors, or by the side exit near Track 1 if you have rolling luggage, a stroller, or a wheelchair and want to avoid stairs.

  2. When you reach the wide fondamenta or pavement in front of the station, turn left.

  3. Walk past the Scalzi Church and the Scalzi Bridge toward the Rio Terà Lista di Spagna (a busy shopping street).

  4. Continue down the Lista di Spagna and through the Campo San Geremia to the Ponte delle Guglie, which is a stone bridge over the Cannaregio Canal.

  5. Cross the bridge.

  6. Continue straight ahead for a short distance, past several storefronts, to the Calle Magazen. (The street is a narrow alley on your left.) The B&B is on the top floor of the building at no. 1308. (Ring the doorbell for the B&B at the building entrance.)
