Few hotels in Venice can offer the extraordinary location of the Royal San Marco 4-star Hotel, that welcomes visitors in the heart of the historic center, in Calle dei Fabbri to be exact, at the foot of the Ponte dei Dai that leads directly to Piazza San Marco.
The seductive city center atmosphere is further enhanced by the cupolas of St. Mark's Basilica and by the majestic presence of the Doge's Palace, the seat of power of the Most Serene Republic, stretching out towards St. Mark's basin and the Riva degli Schiavoni.
Boats leave the Riva degli Schiavoni for the Lido di Venezia and the Giardini, attractive locations that respectively host the Venice Film Festival and the Venice Biennial , two international events that are not to be missed and are on the very doorstep of Royal San Marco Hotel guests.
For those who love shopping, the nearby Calle Larga XX Marzo and Mercerie - both just two minute's walk from the hotel - are home to the best boutiques, countless fabric, clothing Murano glass and souvenir shops.
In the area surrounding the Royal San Marco Hotel, are the Rialto Bridge, the Fenice Theater, the Fortuny Palace and the Correr Museum ...
