Four star Bonvecchiati Hotel Venice Italy as been offering elegance, comfort and exclusive services to its guests since first opening its door within central Venice in 1790.
The location of the hotel’s palazzo building is one of the best in the city, only a three minute walk from Saint Mark’s Square, the main tourist attraction in Venice, and five minute stroll from Rialto Bridge.
One of the best features of the hotel is that it has a private landing dock for gondolas and water taxis, meaning you can get directly from, say, the Marco Polo airport to the hotel, without the need to carry your luggage around the narrow Venetian alleyways.
