Hotel Fontana photo

The Hotel Fontana--a.k.a. the Casa Fontana--is a small, family-run three-star hotel on the Campo San Provolo, slightly inland from the Riva degli Schiavoni waterfront and not far from the Piazza San Marco. (The campo is less a square than a junction of several streets with restaurants where you can sit outdoors in good weather.)

There are several ways to reach the Hotel Fontana from the Alilaguna Linea Blu airport-boat stop at San Zaccaria. We recommend this route, which is short and scenic with no bridges to cross:

Hotel Fontana map directions

  1. As you leave the boat station, head left and look for a covered passage just before the Hotel Savoia & Jolanda. The passage is called the "Sotoportego S. Zaccaria," and you'll see signs for the Ospedale (hospital) and the Carabinieri (police) above the opening.

  2.  Go through the passage, which will lead you into Campo San Zaccaria.

  3. Continue through the campo and turn left at the northwest corner.

  4. Walk a few meters and turn right at the next corner, where you'll find the Hotel Fontana.

From the Marittima cruise terminals:
