- The Location: Sant'Elena
- If you’re considering a B&B in Venice,
whether for a long or short vacation, with or without your
family and kids, or for a business meeting, the Bed and
Breakfast BBvenezia in Sant'Elena is the ideal
location for an unforgettable stay in the heart of the lagoon
Nested in the greenest part of the historic section of
Venice, next to the gardens of the Biennale, the Bed and
Breakfast is conveniently located at a pleasant 20 minutes walk
from San Marco square (approximately 2 km),
Alternatively, the vaporetto (water bus-Venice public
transportation) dock is 100 meters from the B&B. From here, St.
Mark’s square is a short 5 minutes ride (San Zaccaria stop).
Should you choose to walk to your destination, the stroll
along Riva degli Schiavoni is possibly one of the most scenic
routes in Venice: it owes its name to the merchants from
Dalmatia (Schiavonia) who, back in the days, upon docking on the
south bank of Castello (a Venetian sestiere or quarter) would
remain transfixed by the amazing views that to this day can
still be enjoyed on this side of the island.
distinctive feature of the B&B location must however be
the incredibly green area that surrounds the Bed & Breakfast
Venezia in Sant’Elena, the largest one in Venice: it’s called
Parco delle Rimembranze (or Remembrance park), and its majestic
trees transform the island into a peaceful oasis and perfect
playground for children. The whole little island of Sant’Elena
is infused with peace and quiet, making it the perfect retreat
after a day in the crowded city center. Across the bridge beyond
the park, a short 5 minutes’ walk from the Hotel, the Gardens of
the Biennale are within easy reach.
Since there aren’t
many bridges in Sant’Elena, the island is safely and easily
accessible by guests. Its position at a higher level in the
lagoon keeps it sheltered from the exceptional peaks of “acqua
alta” (or high waters) which occur periodically in Venice.
With its strategic location in the center of Venice, the Bed and
Breakfast Venezia - Venice, is also a great starting point to
visit the nearby islands.
A small stretch of lagoon separates
Sant’Elena from Venice Lido; 10 minutes ride on the waterbus
will transport you to the glamorous land of the Film Festival,
the Art Nouveau and the long walks on the golden sand.
and its renowned glass factories and Burano with its exquisite
laces are also a short journey away by vaporetto.
