On the same site where the current Albergo Quattro Fontane is now located, there once was, from 1575, the first casino in Lido, which had been constructed under guidance from the great architect Palladino.
During the 19th century, however, the casino was converted into a tavern, famously with the English poet Robert Browning being one of its regular customers.
The current building is from a reconstruction work done between 1905 and 1926, finished in style inspired by ‘chalet’ and ‘cottage’ architecture.
Hotel Quattro Fontane, as a modernized period residence on Venice’s Lido, has a range of modern amenities and services at guests disposal, including:
Wireless (Wifi) broadband internet
Baby-sitting service (on request)
Meeting and banquet rooms

Arriving to Venice via the S. Lucia train station, you can take one of the public water buses that make the route to Lido (every 10 minutes). One of the slowest routes is with line no. 1, but that line will take you to Lido via Grand Canal, the main waterway in Venice.
