Spent 3 nights here in Jan 08. Location is great if arriving via train or via the bus from the airport at piazza roma which is the bus terminus. Its a 5 min walk to the hotel or 1 stop via the water bus (vaparetto)....More
We were on a 3 week holiday in Italy with our adult children and spent
two delightful days in Venice at the Hotel Abbazia. We arrived by train and the hotel is literally 2min from the station which was perfect. Dragging suitcases round...More
The Abbazia is just few yards away from the Grand Canal, and around the corner from the train station, a vaporetto (water bus) stop and water taxi stop. Although it is also within easy walking distance from the bus stop and car park, three bridges...More
The hotel was in a good location 2 mins from the station and about 5 mins from Piazza Roma (bus station).
It was quite a walk to St Marco's square but we are thankful that we got a hotel close to the station as the...More
I'm a very lucky girl as my boyfriend took me to Venice for my birthday and up until I arrived at the airport I had no idea where i was going. I wasn't disappointed!! Venice is a beautiful city!! Unfortunately we were only there for...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.

From Hotel Abbazia come out the front door, turn right and walk to the end of the building. Turn right again and walk about 1 city block past the train station and over the bridge. You can see the building with the Avis office on the right hand side. Walk to the other side of the building and there is "People Mover" (train) that costs 1.5 euro and takes you right to the dock. Fast, close and comfortable. A very short walk.
