Venice hotel

Recommended Posts

Looking for advice on location. We disembark our cruise at 5 am and have one night to stay in Venice. We would like to visit the touristy areas and debating between staying close to the cruise port (Hotel Olimpia) or staying close to Saint Marks square (Hotel Ala).  Our flight is at 11am the next morning, also wondering how much time we need to allow to get to the airport. Would one hotel be a better location, or not?

Someone just asked a similar question the other day, so I am linking that thread in here hoping that it might prove to be helpful to you. 


Whatever you decide, one thing is certain, you'll be glad you spent a night in Venice...it's so worth the extra time. 😉 Enjoy your visit, wherever you decide to stay.

There is no reason, and not much place yo go if getting off at 5am. I would suggest a more reasonable time.

For an 11am flight youll need to at the airport by 8am, 8:30 at the very latest.

So staying at the Olimpia or any hotel close to Piazzale Roma would be best. Its an easy place to catch a cab....20 minute ride 40e.

Your ship may arrive at 5 but unlikely to dsembark at 5.  Have bfast, disembark at 9  then drop off your luggage at the hotel.
