Casanova ai Tolentini English

How to Reach Us

When you reach the Santa Lucia train station, leave the tracks behind you and head left towards the Ponte degli Scalzi; cross the bridge, turn right towards fondamenta di San Simeone. You’re almost there – before the bridge, turn left towards the fondamenta dei Tolentini. Go past the University of Architecture and you’ll come to the Ponte del Gafaro and Rio dei Tolentini. We are right here, in fondamenta del Gafaro.


Come to the Venice toll booth and follow the directions for the city. You’ll reach the highway terminal of Piazzale Roma; leave your car in one of the common pay parking lots and head toward the nearby “Tre Ponti” area. Once you’ve passed it, stay straight and after a bit, you’ll see our sign at the start of fondamenta del Gafaro; we’ll be waiting for you inside a small courtyard on the right (travel time 2 minutes).

The Venice “Marco Polo” airport is in Tessera, about 15 km away. To reach us, we suggest taking ACTV bus nr. 5 (leaves every 10 minutes) or the blue ATVO line and get off at the end of the line in Piazzale Rome; continue following the directions listed under “By Car.” A water taxi service is also available that will bring you right to the entrance (€80.00 circa) and there is also a taxi service for Piazzale Rome (about €35.00).
