The Carlton on the Grand Canal is an elegant and traditional four-star hotel directly across the water from the Santa Lucia Railroad Station.
It's easy to reach on foot, if you don't mind hauling your bags over the fairly steep and high Scalzi Bridge.
Leave the station by main doors and steps--or by the side exit near Track 1, which is more convenient if you have wheeled luggage, a stroller, or a wheelchair.
Turn left and walk a short distance to the Scalzi Bridge, which crosses the Grand Canal.
Go over the bridge and turn right onto the fondamenta or waterfront sidewalk.
Walk past the domed church and the Hotel Antiche Figure to the Carlton on the Grand Canal, which you'll reach within a minute or two.
Walk to the tree-lined side of the Piazzale Roma where a red-and-white crosswalk from the central bus area feeds into a sidewalk through the trees.
Go through the trees, past the vendor stands, to a low stone bridge.
Cross the bridge. On the other side of the canal, turn left and walk along the fondamenta or sidewalk by the park.
When you reach the corner, continue around to the right.
Beyond the park, you'll reach a second small bridge. Cross it.
Walk along the water past the Hotel Airone to the Carlton on the Grand Canal.
Take a free shuttle bus (if available), a taxi, or the People Mover elevated tramway to the Piazzale Roma. (The People Mover's glass-enclosed station is just beyond the port gates.)
Follow our directions from Piazzale Roma.
