The three-star Hotel San Gallo is on a small and quiet square, the Campo Busolo o San Gallo, just above the Piazza San Marco.
The location is perfect if you want to be in the center of things without being surrounded by mobs of fellow tourists.
As you leave the San Marco Giardinetti boat station, which is served by Alilaguna airport boats and local vaporetti, turn right and walk along the water. (Souvenir kiosks and a small public garden will be on your left.) You'll cross a low metal ramp over a canal.
At the Piazzetta (a large open space with two stone columns), turn left and walk into the Piazza San Marco.
Cross the Piazza San Marco to the arcades on the north side of the square. Go left under the arcades and look for a passageway with two arches.
Walk through the passageway (named the Sotteportego del Cavaletto) and cross the small bridge into the Calle Cavaletto.
Continue past the Best Western Albergo Cavaletto e Doge Orseolo to the Hotel San Gallo, which is on the right side of the campo or square.
Take the Alilaguna Blue Line airport boat from the Marittima cruise basin to the San Marco Giardinetti waterbus stop.
Follow the directions above.
