The three-star Hotel Olimpia occupies several historic buildings with a private garden next to the Rio delle Burchielle, a canal that isolates its quiet Santa Croce neighborhood from the hustle and bustle of the Piazzale Roma.

The hotel is extremely popular, and its location is convenient if you're arriving or departing by plane, bus, cruise ship, or bicycle. (Bike parking is on the premises.)

How to reach the Hotel Olimpia from Piazzale Roma:

Hotel Olimpia map directions

  1. Walk toward the tree-lined side of the Piazzale Roma. Continue through the trees to the water.

  2. Turn right onto the fondamenta or sidewalk along the canal.

  3. A few meters ahead, you'll see a food kiosk just before the Tre Ponti (three bridges). Bearing left to stay by the main canal, walk past the food kiosk to the bridge.

  4. Cross the bridge and immediately turn right. Walk past the Hotel Arlecchino (a sister hotel that we also recommend).

  5. The Hotel Olimpia is just beyond the tiny cross street by the Hotel Arlecchino's entrance.
