Hotel Sant'Elena: a unique setting, a few steps from the Biennale
Compared with the image of Venice with which most people are familiar, the Sant'Elena district is a totally different and unique place.
Here, the bustle of the busy downtown streets are replaced by painters with easels under their arms, local children playing in the street, and a truly authentic, peaceful part of Venice.
A great starting point to explore the city
Sant'Elena is well-connected to the other islands of the lagoon by frequent water buses ( the water bus-stop is close to Hotel Sant'Elena) and bridges, which allow you to enjoy a leisurely stroll to Piazza San Marco along Riva degli Schiavoni, and through the majestic trees of the Park delle Rimembranze.
The Lido of Venice with its beaches and the annual Venice International Film Festival are just 10 minutes away by boat, the Biennale gardens are a 5-minute walk from the hotel, while the world-renowned Murano glass factories are all within easy reach.
With its strategic location in Venice, the Hotel Sant’Elena is also a great starting point to visit the nearby islands: Murano, Burano and Torcello.
