New and improved: Venice Hotel Directions

We've just finished a major overhaul of our Venice Hotel Directions at Venice for Visitors, which provide step-by-step walking directions and location maps for more than 130 hotels, inns, and B&Bs in Venice's historic center.

The biggest change is in maps on individual hotel pages:

In the past, our custom mapping service limited us to 100 maps, which meant that (1) we couldn't use dedicated hotel markers, and (2) we couldn't tweak the neighborhood maps for each hotel.

We recently upgraded to a more expensive map plan, which has allowed us to create 130+ new maps, with each being optimized for a specific hotel. We're now able to identify the featured hotel on each map with a dedicated green marker: Map-marker-green

 

In the reduced-size screen shots below, you can see the differences between an old map and a new map, featuring the three-star Hotel Paganelli on Venice's waterfront east of the Doge's Palace and the Piazza San Marco:

We think this is a big improvement, and we hope you'll agree. If you're looking for a hotel near major arrival and departure points in Venice, or if you've already picked a hotel and you need better directions than you'd find on the hotel's own Web site, see our 130+ pages of walking directions with maps at:
