Grand Hotel dei Dogi
The Grand Hotel dei Dogi is just a few doors away from the Madonna
Location: In the northern part of
Cannaregio, just inland from the Venetian Lagoon. Closest
Alilaguna Airport Boat
stop: Madonna dell'Orto.
You want a luxury hotel in a quiet location, preferably with quick
access to or from Marco Polo Airport by public boat or water taxi.
The Grand Hotel dei Dogi, formerly
the Hotel Boscolo Venezia, is unusually easy to reach from Marco Polo
Airport: On Alilaguna's
or Orange Line, it's normally the first boat stop from the airport and
the last stop on the way to the airport. Travel time is only 30 to 35
minutes, compared to about 90 minutes between the airport and San Marco.
And when you get off the Alilaguna boat at Madonna dell'Orto, you'll be
within a few meters of the hotel.
The 76-room hotel is near the edge of Venice's historic center, in a quiet and
peaceful neighborhood that's less touristed than most. A 10-minute will
take you to the busy Strada Nova (the Cannaregio district's main
shopping street), and you can reach the
Piazza San Marco on foot in 20
to 30 minutes. If you'd rather not walk, you can take an
ACTV water bus
from the Madonna dell'Orto stop or use the hotel's free shuttle boat,
which runs to and from the Piazza San Marco about four times a day.
About the hotel itself:
The Grand Hotel dei Dogi is a traditional luxury hotel with a
beautiful garden, a spa on the premises, and a pier on the lagoon where

Canal snaking through the city. The Grand Hotel dei Dogi is near
the top of the photo, slightly to the right of the green rectangle
along the water.
In the close-up photo, you can see the hotel and its
garden near the lower left corner of the frame. (Look for the white
building with a red awning facing a canal.) The
Madonna dell'Orto Church
is to the right of the hotel. In the top right corner is the Madonna
dell'Orto vaporetto stop, which is served by Alilaguna
airport boats and ACTV public water buses.
