Al Ponte Antico is an experience of warmth, passion, beauty and genuine happiness. My wife and I honeymooned at this 9 room "palace" in Venice and were memorized by every aspect. Our Junior Suite overlooking the Grand Canal was stunning and quite huge for a room in Venice. Every employee put so much heart into their work. The staff made... More

This was a complete splurge but oh so worth it! On a quiet side street in the heart of everything, and our elaborately decorated room( damask wallpaper, chandalier, velvet and brocade furniture) had 2 Windows directly on the Canal. Exactly what I hoped for! Matteo, Bruno and the rest of the staff, greeted us by name when we arrived and... More

Minutes walk from Rialto Bridge this hotel is great. The staff are friendly and efficient and make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. The terrace looks over the Rialto bridge and is a great location to have a coffee and watch the world go by on the Grand canal.

What can I say, this hotel is one of the best I've visited. The historically styled rooms, the amazing views of the canals, the dining was probably some of the best I've had in Italy. And most importantly, the service was amazing.

Al Ponte Antico is an outstanding boutique hotel! It is conveniently located on the Grand Canal, just a few hundred feet from the Rialto bridge; it has it's own dock, so arrival by water taxi is possible.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
