The Hotel Ca' Formenta is located where Venice's main waterfront promenade meets the Via Garibaldi, a wide pedestrian street that angles inland from St. Mark's Basin.

The three-star, 14-room hotel is no more than 10 to 15 minutes from the Piazza San Marco on foot, and the setting is especially magical after dark when you can walk along the water and watch the lights of passing boats.

How to reach the Hotel Ca' Formenta from the Arsenale airport-boat stop:
