Hotel Cà Formenta
Castello 1650, Via Garibaldi
VENICE - Italy

We accept all major credit cards


Hotel Cà Formenta faces the
Venitian Lagoon
The Hotel Ca’ Formenta is situated at the beginning of Via Garibaldi and easily reached from Marco Polo airport of the Santa Lucia Railway Station. We also have a private pier, allowing guests to reach us with ease by Private Water Taxi. It’s a little expensive (approx. € 80 from the airport and € 45 from the railway station), but it’s certainly much more comfortable and characteristic. Alternatively, there’s the Alilaguna Line which departs from the airport and will take guests to the Arsenale, only 100 metres from the Hotel Ca’ Formenta. From the train station, guests can take the public Vaporetto (waterboat line ACTV no’s 41, 51 or 61) which stops at ai Gardini. Via Garibaldi is definitely one of the last places in Venice, which still well preserves a respect for tradition; in fact, here it’s not unusual to see the local Venetians come out for a glass of wine and a relaxing walk before dinner.

The area is rich in traditional restaurants and typical eating places or “Osterie,” but also in monuments and culture: only 200 mts away, visitors can find the entrance to the pavilions of the Biennale of Art. In conclusion, it’s a corner in Venice; well know by Venetians and still open to discovery by “foresti,” as the locals call all visitors from abroad.
INTEREST POINTS close to HOTEL CA' FORMENTA!
Saint Mark's Basilica: beautiful Venetian church with 5 domes looks like the ancient church of Costantinopoli. It was embellished during the early centuries of the last millennium and particulary in the thirtheenth century when Venice dominated Mediterranean culture and economy.
The church, built to represent the power of Serenissima, is externally embellished with marble, mosaics and bas-relief: all maded with precious materials came from Bisanzio, Aquileia and Ravenna. Internally, the church has a Greek cross plan with domes substained by big columns.
But the most amazing fact of this church is that the architectural structure is perfectly hidden by the beauty of the mosaics...
Saint Pietro's Basilica: This church was the cathedral of Venice 'till 1807, when Saint Mark's Basilic became the religious centre of the city.
San Pietro was rebuilt on a previous building of the seventh century a.C. and dedicated to San Pietro by the bishop Magno. Original building, as appears nowadays, it's the result of a remake, partially completed, based on a project by Palladio.
Here, seignory used to come the eight of January to commemorate the end of the pestilence in 1630. In memory of all the episodes of plague that threw Venice and the entire Europe into confusion, also San Lorenzo implora l'aiuto divino per la liberazione di Venezia dalla peste del 1447 by Antonio Bellucci painted in the end of 1600.
Saint Giorgio's School: The School took its name by the Dalmatian community which became a corporation in 1451 with the patronage of saints George, Jerom and Tryphon.
It was officially opened in 1451 and testifies the presence of the Dalmatian (Schiavoni) community: Venice always trades with Dalmatia during its history. This School would probably be anonymous now if Jerusalem's patriarch had not gave the S. George's relic to the commander of Venetian fleet in 1502. At the same time, Carpaccio, was charged to realize some paintings dedicated to the saints Agostino, Matteo and Giorgio: masterpieces where Carpaccio reached the perfection of its art.
School was closed as the other by Napoleon's edict.
