Hotel Ca' del Dose photo

The Ca' del Dose is a small, family-friendly guesthouse near the Riva degli Schiavoni, a waterfront promenade with many of Venice's leading luxury hotels. Its 10 air-conditioned rooms are decorated in a traditional Venetian style and offer free Wi-Fi.

If you like church bells, you'll enjoy the Ca' del Dose: It's just around the corner from the Chiesa San Giovanni in Bragora, where Pope Paul II and Antonio Vivaldi were baptised.

How to reach Ca' del Dose from the Alilaguna Linea Blu airport-boat stop at Arsenale:

  3. Continue walking straight ahead, past the Hotel Gabrieli Sandwirth and other large buildings that face the waterfront.

  4. Turn right at the Calle del Dose, a narrow street just before a large red stucco building with a small clock on the right corner of its façade.
