Stayed at the Hotel al Piave for 5 nights in May 2018. I found that it was well-located with only a few minutes walk to San Marco and vaporetto, or taxi pickup at Campo St. Formosa. Our room was very comfortable and nicely updated. Great...More
Our stay in Venice was really pleasant at Al Piave. First of all, the location is amazing - close to Piazza San Marco as well as to the San Zaccaria vaporetto station (which was helpful as we arrived from the train station by water bus)....More

What a wonderful place to stay. Hotel Al Piave is located about 10 minutes from San Marco and couldn’t possibly be more accessible and more central. It’s out of the center of the highly populated tourist area as well, so it feels local. Furthermore, it...More
Our family decided to spend two nights in Venice before we boarded our cruise ship. Since our kids don't like to share a bed (they are 9 and 13) our room in this hotel was perfect. We had a room with a double bed and...More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
I think karlowsj meant Alilaguna regarding transportation from the cruise terminal to San Marco. Again, I suggest you contact the hotel with all of your questions. They are VERY helpful and responsive.
