- In a quiet part of Venice, this 15th Century property offers a rarely-seen side of the city. Located in the residential area of Dorsoduro, the Tiziano Hotel is a short walk from San Basilio Vaporetto stop, which connects to St Mark?s in less than ten minutes. Surrounded by winding Venetian streets and quiet canals, the property is unique for its relative calm and the spacious, well-appointed rooms it provides. Breakfast onsite includes freshly baked cakes and an espresso strong enough to fuel the 20-minute walk to the Grand Canal. For evening meals the restaurants in this area cater mainly for locals, so food is always good and always at a reasonable price. After spending time in the more tourist-trodden areas of this beautiful city, the quietness surrounding Tiziano Hotel cannot be overvalued.
