Palazzo Veneziano hotel in Venice

ABOVE: The Palazzo Veneziano is the middle building in this trio of restored palazzi on Venice's Zattere.

The Palazzo Veneziano is close to the San Basilio cruise terminal and within walking distance of the Alilaguna Linea Blu airport-boat landing at Zattere. It faces the Giudecca Canal (see photo above), which is used by cruise ships, vaporetti, water taxis, and other maritime traffic.

The four-star superior hotel has 84 rooms and suites, some with Jacuzzis, terraces, and/or canal views. (In some cases, the private Jacuzzi is on the terrace, facing the Giudecca Canal.) The hotel also has a bar and is close to many restaurants.

How to reach the Palazzo Veneziano from the Alilaguna airport boat:
