For a stay in Venice steeped in art and culture, AD Place is one of the most inviting locations from which to calmly visit St. Mark's Square, its Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the Clock Tower, the municipal museums like the Correr and the Archaeological Museum, the Marciana Library, the Bridge of Sighs and the Academy Gallery.
Just a few minutes walk, after crossing the scenic Academy Bridge, we would recommend an itinerary going to the Venier dei Leoni Palace that overlooks the Grand Canal and houses the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Wandering around again, you will soon run into the Rialto area: admire the famous bridge's spectacular Istria stone structure, peek into the traditional shops, watch the varied traffic of boats and the millimetric maneuvers made by the gondoliers, immerse yourself in the traditional market, relish an aperitif in a bàcaro (tavern) or lose yourself amidst the most impossible of narrow alleyways and the constantly swarming shopping streets.
From Venice Piazzale Roma (car and bus stop) or from Santa Lucia train station: take the ACTV steamboat line 1 and get off about half an hour later at the Santa Maria del Giglio* stop. Head along the calle del Gritti (or del Piovan), that you will find between the Bevilacqua material shop and the Traghetto art gallery, until you come to the campo di Santa Maria del Giglio, where a seventeenth century church of the same name with a magnificent Baroque facade, stands. Turn left into Fondamenta della Fenice and you're there; you will find AD Place on your left at number 2557.
From the Venice-Tessera “Marco Polo" airport: take the Eurofly ATVO shuttle bus or the ACTV bus number 5 to Venice Piazzale Roma (car and bus station). From here take the ACTV steamboat line 1 and get off about half an hour later at the Santa Maria del Giglio stop. Continue as above*.
Alternatively, from the Venice Marco Polo Airport, take the Alilaguna shuttle bus steamboat and get off at St. Mark's stop (Vallaresso). Once you get off, go over the bridge on your left until you find Calle Vallaresso in front of you; take the ACTV number 1 steamboat in the direction of Piazzale Roma/Tronchetto. Get off at the second stop, S. Maria del Giglio. Continue as above*.
From Treviso “Antonio Canova" airport: you can reach Venice Piazzale Roma (car and bus stop with parking) by taxi, with a hired car or using one of the ATVO buses that leave directly from the airport.
