Settimo Cielo is located in the very heart of Venice and is the perfect place from where to explore the treasures of this magical city on the Lagoon. The building overlooks the Campo Santo Stefano, bathed in sunlight and so full of life. Saint Mark’s Square, with its famous Basilica and the famous Ducal Palace, the Rialto Bridge and its colourful market, the Fenice Theatre, the Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana, the Accademia Galleries and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection are all within easy reach and just a few minutes’ walk away.
HOW TO REACH US
FROM PIAZZALE ROMA AND SANTA LUCIA STATION
Take the ACTV WaterBus, Line 1 service, to the Sant’Angelo stop.
FROM THE SANT’ANGELO STOP
Once you have alighted from the waterbus, walk straight on until you reach a tall red-brick building, then turn right into Ramo Narisi which is the first narrow street or “calle” after this building.
Turn the corner and continue on until you arrive at a small bridge.
At the top of it, turn left and walk along Calle del Pestrin.
At the end of this, you will see the Church of Saint Stephen and the Settimo Cielo is directly opposite.
FROM MARCO POLO AIRPORT
Two public transport companies, ACTV and ATVO, provide a service from the airport to Piazzale Roma, otherwise you can take a taxi.

The best alternative however is to use the ALILAGUNA shuttle waterbus service. This takes an hour to take you directly from the airport to the centre of Venice and costs €15.00.
Timetables are available from www.alilaguna.it. If possible alight at the Sant’Angelo stop or alternatively in Saint Mark’s Square.
FROM THE SAN BASILIO CRUISE TERMINAL
From the Cruise Terminal, you can take the Alilaguna shuttle waterbus service (times and ticket prices from www.alilaguna.it ), that departs from the Terminal and takes you to Saint Mark’s Square. Once you have alighted you will see the ACTV boarding point from where the Line 1 waterbus service departs. Take this and alight at the Sant’Angelo stop. Follow the earlier directions.
