Stop the music "Anonimo Veneziano"

Our location is really favorable for visiting Venice quietly.

BBvenezia is situated in the city's residential area, in the greenery of  the Sant’Elena pine-wood.

San Marco is easily reachable on foot in 20 minutes,

by walking down one of  the nicest and most panoramic views in the world.

Lazy people ;-) can catch the waterbus at the nearest station -- Sant’Elena.

It takes less than 10 minutes to reach the S. Zaccaria stop. 

Walking distances to the center of the city.

The Biennale gardens are just in front of the building.

All you need to do is cross the bridge and walk for a few dozen meters. 

The Lido, its beaches and the International Show of Cinematographic Art are easily reachable by boat in just 5 minutes.

Line # 4.1 will take you in less than half an hour directly to Murano for your brittle purchases.

The most characteristic sites usually hidden from the common tourist are easily accessible from S.Elena:

the Basilica of San Pietro di Castello, via Garibaldi, l’Arsenale, the church of San Giuseppe,

all the small and narrow streets (Calli) and squares (Campielli) that intersect and make you relive a reality belonging to the 1800’s.

You will not feel as though you are in the tourist area in the centre of the city.

Sunset in S.Elena

    Venice is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
There are hundreds of monuments to visit, hundreds of churches and dozens of museums, but the most beautiful thing to do is to take a walk on the narrow streets called "calli" and wide squares called "campielli", where the old true Venetian atmosphere is still alive: 
you will dive into tranquility.  The most famous and picturesque celebrations in Venice, besides Easter, Christmas and New Year's Eve, are the colorful Carnival which is famous all over the world, the Historic Regatta (first Sunday of September), the Redentore with the midnight fireworks in the middle of the lagoon (third Saturday of July), the Vogalonga (30 km non-competitive rowing regatta with thousands of boats), and the Venice Marathon in October. Art expositions such as the Biennale, Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Palazzo Grassi and Museo Correr, are all a MUST.
