ST. MARK'S SQUARE IS A STONE'S THROW AWAY
Hotel Flora overlooks the quiet Calle dei Bergamaschi, and is only steps from the Calle XXII Marzo, between Campo Santa Maria del Giglio and Campo San Moisè. This narrow street, also called Via XXII Marzo, leads directly to Saint Mark's Square, only minutes away, through one of the most striking approaches: the Ala Napoleonica, at the base of the Procuratie Nuove and the Procuratie Vecchie, which today houses the Museo Correr.
Beside the hotel is the Palazzo Contarini Fasan which according to tradition was the home of Desdemona, the tragic heroine of Shakepeare's drama 'Othello'.
A short distance from the Hotel are the Teatro la Fenice, Ca' Contarini del Bovolo with its famous staircase, Campo Santo Stefano and the Gallerie dell'Accademia, the modern art at Palazzo Grassi and Palazzo Franchetti. From Campo Santa Maria del Giglio you can cross the Grand Canal with the gondola-traghetto and in a few short minutes you will find yourself under the volutes of the Chiesa della Salute, built by Baldassarre Longhena, or enjoying the masterpieces of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
From the Santa Lucia train station or the Piazzale Roma
It is easy to get to Hotel Flora from the train station and the parking facilities by taking the vaporetto (waterbus) no. 1, to the San Marco stop. From the waterbus stop the hotel is only three minutes' walk. You can also take a watertaxi. We recommend taking only licensed taxis which can be recognized by the yellow stripe along the side of the boat and a number, and to agree upon a fare prior to boarding.
From the Venice Marco Polo Airport
Take the Alilaguna shuttle service from the airport to Saint Mark's Square, and continue on foot from there. On land, you can take the shuttlebus service (ACTV or ATVO) to Piazzale Roma, and take vaporetto no. 1 until the San Marco stop, and then continue on foot for a few minutes' walk.
