The Hotel Palazzo Vitturi is a three-star, 16-room boutique hotel in a lovingly-restored Venetian Gothic palazzo on one of our favorite squares in Venice, the Campo Santa Maria Formosa.
Both the Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge are a short distance away on foot.
The hotel is especially notable for its decor, which combines authentic Venetian woodwork, terrazzo floors, frescoes, antiques and other traditional features with a contemporary Italian touch.
There are several ways to reach the Hotel Palazzo Vitturi from the Alilaguna Linea Blu airport-boat stop at .
We recommend this route, which is fairly simple and requires crossing only two small bridges:
As you leave the boat station, head left and look for a covered passage ahead of you. The passage is called the "Sotoportego S. Zaccaria," and you'll see signs for the Ospedale (hospital) and the Carabinieri (police) above the opening.
Go through the passage, which will lead you into Campo San Zaccaria.
Continue through the campo and turn left at the northwest corner.
Walk a few meters and turn right at the next corner into the Calle San Provolo. Continue a short distance past the Hotel Fontana until you reach a bridge, which will be on your left.
Cross the bridge, which will lead you into a short, curved street named the Calle Corte Rotta.
Continue walking. The street will become Ragagiuffa (look for a sign on the wall).
Soon, you'll reach a small bridge at the end of the street. Cross the bridge to the Campo Santa Maria Formosa.
Walk straight ahead. The Hotel Palazzo Vitturi will be on your right, facing the square and the church.
Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the cruise basin to the San Zaccaria stop.
Follow the directions above.
Leave the cruise terminal by the main doors and walk to the wooden bridge.
Cross the bridge and walk to the vaporetto stop, which is just ahead.
Take the No. 2 water bus in the direction of San Zaccaria.
Get off at San Zaccaria and follow the directions above.
