Venice is so beautiful that not being able to visit can be truly heartbreaking. We know this is a complicated period for everyone, but Hotel Cristallo’s fortunate location allows us to continue offering our services, even now, much to the appreciation of our guests. Hotel Cristallo is located right on the Lido, Venice’s beach island that can be reached directly by car or ferry-boat.
The ferry-boat, run by the ACTV public navigation service, works just like any other ferry: you can board with your car, motorbike, or even bicycle, from Venice’s Tronchetto car terminal. After just 35 minutes you will reach the Lido, enjoying the beautiful sights of Venice along the way. The ferry-boat crosses the Giudecca Canal and the San Marco Basin, providing a spectacular view of Piazza San Marco, and finally lands at the Venice Lido. After disembarking at the Lido, a 5-minute drive takes you to Hotel Cristallo where we offer private parking (for a fee) as well as convenient public parking nearby.
The Venice Lido is also easy and convenient to reach for those arriving by plane: Venice’s Marco Polo airport provides the Alilaguna private navigation line, using a direct motorboat (blue line) to reach the Lido in about an hour without any stops or line changes. The Alilaguna stop at the Venice Lido is just a 3-minute walk from Hotel Cristallo.
Hotel Cristallo is an excellent home base for visiting Venice. You can reach Piazza San Marco in 15 minutes by vaporetto, and it only takes 10 minutes to reach the Venice Biennale. The vaporetto stop is 100 meters from the hotel, and the beach is 300 meters away.
We hope to see you soon at Venice Lido!
