Venice is marvelous, enjoy it: You will find Hotel Al Piave 3 stars in the heart of Venice's historical city center, in a quiet and secluded location by the campo di Santa Maria Formosa and the famous sites of the Mercato and the Bridge of Rialto. Stroll along Le Mercerie shopping boulevard to enjoy a variety of shops and novelty stores until you get to the most beautiful square in the world, Saint Mark's square, with its Basilica and gorgeous view over the island of San Giorgio.
