Walking directions to the Carnival Palace Hotel (with map)
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

When you reach the wide fondamenta or pavement in
front of the station, turn left.
Walk past the Scalzi Church and the Scalzi Bridge toward the
Lista di Spagna (a busy pedestrian thoroughfare).
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.
Cross the bridge and turn left. Follow
the Cannaregio Canal, as shown on the map above, until you reach the
Carnival Palace Hotel.
