Centrally located just three minutes from the Rialto Bridge and five minutes from St. Mark's Square, the Taverna San Lio bed and breakfast enjoys a privileged location among hotels in Venice: it is convenient to the most celebrated and beautiful sites and monuments of the city and a few minutes from the boats that travel along the Grand Canal to the railway station and Piazzale Roma (car terminal) and the Accademia Galleries, the Guggenheim Museum and the Venice Biennale.
After a short walk among the narrow and charming lanes, St. Mark's Square will come into view in all of its spectacular beauty. The Procuratie demarcate the square and frame the splendid façade of St. Mark's Basilica, crowned by opulent Byzantine domes and spectacular mosaics; the light pink and crenellated Palazzo Ducale faces the historic Marciana Library and overlooks St. Mark's bay, a scenographic body of water: this is truly one of the most beautiful areas of Venice and the world!
