My husband and I recently stayed at Hotel Abbazia on our honeymoon and we were very pleased with the accomodations. Mirco and Mario were very helpful. They even tried to track down our luggage for us when the airline had lost it. The rooms were...More

My husband and I stayed 4 nights at the Abbazia Hotel and this was our first visit ever to Venice, Italy. It was really nice to get off the train and get to the hotel within 5 minutes without any confusion or hassle to locate...More
We were not quite sure about this hotel as it seemed so close to train station and not really in the middle of Venice. We were at the hotel and in our room 15 minutes after getting off the train and heard horror stories from...More
We stayed at the Hotel Abbazia on two different occasions during a two week period. Prior to booking our stay I asked if we could leave a very large suitcase at the hotel for two weeks while we traveled throughout Italy (we were trying to...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.

From Hotel Abbazia come out the front door, turn right and walk to the end of the building. Turn right again and walk about 1 city block past the train station and over the bridge. You can see the building with the Avis office on the right hand side. Walk to the other side of the building and there is "People Mover" (train) that costs 1.5 euro and takes you right to the dock. Fast, close and comfortable. A very short walk.
