Sotoportego delle Acque

The Locanda delle Acque or "Inn of the Waters" is a B&B near the Rialto Bridge. It's tiny, with only three rooms, but all rooms have private baths and free Wi-Fi is available throughout the premises.

The Locanda delle Acque is hidden away in the Calle delle Aque ("Street of the Waters"), which is alongside a canal. From the Alilaguna Orange Line airport boat's stop at Rialto, getting to the inn is relatively easy as long as you follow the directions below.

How to reach the Locanda delle Acque from the Rialto airport-boat stop (Alilaguna Linea Arancio):

Locanda Ca' delle Acque directions

  1. As you leave the boat pier, turn left. Cross the small bridge just ahead of you and walk through the arcaded passage until you see a Nicla clothing store.

  2. Turn right onto the Calle Larga Mazzini and walk straight ahead to the Campo del San Salvador, which has a memorial column in the street.

  3. Cross the campo and continue straight ahead up the Marzaria San Salvador. ("Marzaria" is the Venetian dialect spelling used on street signs; if you have a map, the street will be shown as "Merceria.")

  4. You'll soon reach a covered passage named the "Sotoportego e Calle de le Acque." (See top photo.) Go through the sotoportego.

  5. Ca' delle Acque will be just ahead at no. 4991. Look for the discreet plaque by the door (see inset photo).
