We arrived on the night train Thello to the station of Venice Santa Lucia from Paris. The station is located in front of the Grand Canal. We took a public transport boat that left us in front of the wooden bridge of the Academy (Ponte della Accademia). Just before arriving we went through the Rialto bridge, the most famous in Venice. Luckily the hotel was very close.

It is convenient to take a GPS to not get lost, or in any case download some application for smarphone as Maps.me or directly use Google Maps. It is worth walking and getting lost in those narrow streets with cords and bridges that cut all the time. The city itself is quite an attraction.
