Locanda Al Leon photo

The Locanda Al Leon is a small, intimate hotel within a block of the Doge's Palace and the Bridge of Sighs. It offers single, double, and triple rooms (including a double room with terrace on the top floor for guests who don't mind walking four flights up from the street).

Furnishings are traditional, and the 500-year-old building has plenty of old-fashioned decorative touches such as beamed ceilings and Murano glass chandeliers.

Locanda Al Leon walking map

The Alilaguna Linea Blu (Blue Line) airport boat arrives at the "C" and "D" platforms of the San Zaccaria waterbus stop, which is also used by ACTV public vaporetti. Here's how to reach the Locanda Al Leon from the boat pier:

  1. As you leave the waterbus station, bear left toward the stone pedestrian bridge.

  2. Cross the bridge and continue to the second street that goes inland, the Calle degli Albanesi.

  3. Turn right into the Calle degli Albanesi and walk straight ahead.

  4. You'll find the Locanda Al Leon on your left near the end of the calle, just before the street feeds into a small square.
