Walking directions to Domus Ciliota (with map)
Ciolota is a reasonably-priced guesthouse in the San Marco district, not
far from the Campo San Stefano. The Accademia Bridge and the Piazza San Marco
are within a fairly short walking distance, and the hotel's neighborhood is
served by the Sant'Angelo stop of the ACTV's No. 1 vaporetto and the Alilaguna
Orange Line airport boat.
Domus Ciliota is housed in a former Augustinian monastery. The
cloister is now a private courtyard where you can lounge outdoors in good
weather. (No vows of silence are required.) All 32 rooms have refrigerators, and free Wi-Fi
is available throughout the building.
How to reach Domus Ciliota from the Sant'Angelo
airport-boat stop (Alilaguna Linea Arancio):
As you leave the waterbus pier, walk inland on the street ahead
Continue into the L-shaped square (the Corte de l'Albero)
and exit via a tiny street straight ahead of you at the south end of the square.
Turn right onto Fondamenta Narisi and walk along
the canal. Continue straight ahead, past the Calle del Pestrin, to a bridge
called the Ponte Piscina San Samuele.
Cross the bridge, which will lead you into the Piscina San
Go straight ahead for a short distance.
Turn right at the Ramo de la Piscina. (Some maps identify
this as the "Salizzada San Samuele.") Turn left almost
immediately onto the Calle Crosera.

delle Muneghe. The Domus Ciliota will be a few doors down, on the left side
of the street.
