Welcome to B&B Venezia
Bed and Breakfast Venezia is located in the most verdant
district of the city, an island of unspoiled serenity on the eastern shore of the city's fabled lagoon.
The most delight feature of Sant'Elena, however, may be the dreamlike vision of ancient Venice shimmering across the lagoon, especially as the sun sets behind the tower of San Marco and the great dome of Santa Maria della Salute.
Offers rooms accommodation in a comfortable building located in a very peaceful residential neighborhood. Our location is really favorable for visiting the city quietly. The Bed & Breakfast is situated in the Venice's residential area, in the greenery of the Sant'Elena pine-wood.
From the B&B San Marco, center Venice, is easily reachable on foot in 20 minutes, by walking down one of the nicest and most panoramic views in the world. Lazy people ;-) can catch the waterbus at the nearest station -- Sant'Elena. It takes less than 10 minutes to reach the S. Zaccaria stop.
The Biennale gardens are just in front of the building. All you need to do is cross the bridge and walk for a few dozen meters. The Lido, its beaches and the the International Show of Cinematographic Art are easily reachable by boat in just 5 minutes. Line #4.1 will take you in less than half an hour directly to Murano for your brittle purchases.
The most characteristic sites of Venice, usually hidden from the common tourist, are easily accessible from S.Elena: the Basilica of San Pietro di Castello, via Garibaldi, the Arsenale, the church of San Giuseppe, all the small and narrow streets (Calli) and squares (Campielli) that intersect and make you relive a reality belonging to the 1800's. You will not feel as though you are in the tourist area in the centre of the city. Venezia (Venice) is one of the most beautiful cities in the world (click here for some photos). There are hundreds of monuments to visit, hundreds of churches and dozens of museums, but the most beautiful thing to do is to take a walk on the narrow streets called "calli" and wide squares called "campielli", where the old true venetian atmosphere is still alive: you will dive into tranquility. The most famous and picturesque celebrations, besides Easter, Christmas and New Year's Eve, and the colorful Carnival which is famous all over the world, the Historic Regatta (first Sunday of September), the Redentore with the midnight fireworks in the middle of the lagoon (third Saturday of July), the Vogalonga (30 km non-competitive rowing regatta with thousands of boats, and the Marathon in October. Art expositions such as the Biennale, Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Palazzo Grassi and Museo Correr, museo dell'Accademia and fine arts are all a MUST.
