Neighbourhood
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

Dear 614jules, thank you for your request. We are happy that you are considering our hotel for a future stay in Venice. Depending on your cruise, your terminal can be "Marittima" or "San Basilio". The first can be reached with the monorail trail People Mover (1.5 Euros) pp and it takes you 10-15 min. then you would need to walk more or less 1km in order to arrive to the ship. San Basilio can be reached with waterbus (7,50 Euros pp) and in 15 min you will be able to arrive. We remind you however that a transfer (land taxi) from the hotel with luggage assistance, to the pier (Marittima or S. Basilio) can be arranged without any kind of problems directly at the hotel. Always at your disposal best regards Hotel Olimpia Venice

How do I get from the train station to the hotel?
Dear Sirs, The best way to get to our hotel from the train station is catching the water bus. You will find the water bus station in front of you, outside the train station. You have to catch the first water bus from the left to the right and stop to Piazzale Roma. The number of the water bus can be number 1 or 2. You can also take a Water taxi (around 40 euros). This is a very expensive option but you can be taken right in front of the hotel. You will find the water taxi point just outside the train station. Remember to ask the driver to take you in front of the hotel. You can also walk of course, if you have not so many luggage. Outside the train station, turn right and cross the first big bridge you find, Calatrava bridge. After the bridge you will be in Piazzale Roma and from that square you can already see our hotel opposite the bridge. Then you have just a small bridge to cross and after that you just turn right. Hoping that these information will be useful, Regards, The Hotel Olimpia Venice Management
