This old Abbey was a very good choice for the start of a recent long European trip beginning with a cruise out of Venice. It's within easy "walking distance" of Piazzale Roma, the transportation hub. Schlepping bags there is a different matter. But aha! There...More
I can’t say enough good things about this hotel!! It was a wonderful one night post cruise stay for my family of four. It started
when we first walked in the door early Sunday morning. First of all Matteo immediately knew who we were and...More
This is out first trip to Venice and we were aware that we would be here over a weekend and so I booked quite a while out after really not much research about hotel. Liked the look of the area being quite close to transport....More
Based on some reviews we decided to stay in Cannaregio rather than in Venice proper. Hotel Abbazia is very well located right by the center of cannaregio. You will have to walk to it for about 10 mns whether you arrive by boat or by...More
We found this hotel perfectly location- walking distance to the train station, Piazzale Roma (the bus station) and right off the Grand Canal (with much needed access to the Vaporetto). Once you get to the Vaporetto (the mass transit boat system) you have Venice in...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
It depends upon how you are arriving. If by train, porters are readily available around the station, and I understand are relatively inexpensive (negotiate first). The hotel is one short block away, so not a long trip. If... More
It depends upon how you are arriving. If by train, porters are readily available around the station, and I understand are relatively inexpensive (negotiate first). The hotel is one short block away, so not a long trip. If you are coming by boat, try to get to the train station piers.
The hotel is very close to the cruise port. The building across the street from the train station (look for Avis sign and then go past to the other side of the building) has a aerial shuttle station that charges 1 Euro (I... More
The hotel is very close to the cruise port. The building across the street from the train station (look for Avis sign and then go past to the other side of the building) has a aerial shuttle station that charges 1 Euro (I think) and it whisks you right out to the ships.
