Bauer Palazzo from Grand Canal

Please note: The Bauer Palazzo is closed for renovation (with a partial conversion into retail), and it isn't clear when the hotel will reopen.

The luxurious Bauer Palazzo (formerly the Hotel Bauer and Il Palazzo) consists of two sections: one in a 1940s Italian Modern building just inland from the Grand Canal, and a more exclusive wing in an authentic, historic Venetian palace that is now a lavishly-decorated "heirloom and boutique hotel" that's perfect for a honeymoon or anniversary trip.

Chances are, you'll be arriving by water taxi at the Bauer Palazzo's private pier, but if you're willing to mingle with the hoi polloi on public airport boats, you can walk to the Bauer from the San Marco Giardinetti waterbus station. The walk is quick and easy, over level pavement.

How to reach the Bauer Palazzo from San Marco Giardinetti:

Hotel Bauer Palazzo map directions

  1. As you leave the Alilaguna boat pier, turn left and cross a small stone bridge.

  2. Continue a few meters to the Calle Vallaresso and turn right.

  3. Walk straight ahead down the Calle Vallaresso, past Harry's Bar and a row of designer shops.

  4. At the first corner, turn left into the Salizzada San Moisè.

  5. Walk straight ahead, past the Fendi and Prada shops. The street will broaden into the Campo San Moisè.

  6. The Hotel Bauer is just beyond the San Moisè Church, on the south side of the small campo or square. (Look for the large modern building on your left, just before a bridge where gondoliers ply their trade.)
