Carnival Palace Hotel photo

The Carnival Palace Hotel is one of Venice's newer four-star boutique hotels, with 67 rooms and suites (some with private terraces) that are decorated in a modern but comfortable style.

Amenities include a large private garden and terrace where breakfast is served in good weather. The hotel also has a restaurant that is reserved exclusively for hotel guests.

The Carnival Palace is located on the Cannaregio Canal, not far from an Alilaguna airport-boat stop and within walking distance of the railroad station with only one small bridge to cross. (It's also close to the Venetian Ghetto, the oldest ghetto in Europe, which is still the center of Jewish life in Venice.)

How to reach the Carnival Palace Hotel from the Alilaguna Linea Arancio airport-boat stop at Guglie:

Map of route from Venice Santa Lucia Railroad Station to Ponte delle Guglie

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 easy-to-miss (and conveniently stair-free) side exit if you have rolling luggage, a stroller, or a wheelchair.

  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 Lista di Spagna (a busy pedestrian thoroughfare).

  4. Continue down the Lista di Spagna, through the Campo San Geremia (you'll see a large domed church on your right), and on to the Ponte delle Guglie Bridge.

  5. Cross the bridge and turn left. Follow the Cannaregio Canal, as shown on the map above, until you reach the Carnival Palace Hotel.
