Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love It

  • The hotel is a "masterpiece of Italian Art Nouveau" (The Huffington Post)
  • It is on Lido island, 5 minutes' walk from the beach on the Adriatic coast
  • St Mark's Square is 20 minutes away by water taxi

Map & Directions

From Marco Polo Airport, a ticket on the Alilaguna vaparetto to Lido will cost around 15€, each way. From Treviso Airport, you can get a bus for around 5€, each way, to Piazzale Roma, and then catch a vaparetto to Lido for around 6€, each way. Alternatively, we recommend buying the 72-hour Alilaguna Time pass for 65€, which includes unlimited travel on the Red, Blue and Green lines. You can take the Red (April-November only) or Blue lines from Marco Polo to Lido island.

Overview

The 4-star Grande Albergo Ausonia & Hungaria is a 5-minute walk from the beach on Lido island. The property was built in 1903 and is a "masterfully renovated… masterpiece of Italian Art Nouveau", says The Huffington Post, and still has original furniture and frescoes.

The Lido is an 11-kilometre-long sandbar, 20 minutes by water taxi from St Mark's Square (7.50€ per person, per journey). It was a fashionable seaside resort in the 19th century, and remains an "island escape, with sandy beaches, an A-list film festival and Liberty (Art Nouveau) villas" (Lonely Planet).

The hotel is on the Gran Viale Santa Maria Elisabetta, the island's main avenue, and is five minutes' walk from the vaporetto terminal in one direction, and the beach on the Adriatic coast in the other. On the way to the beach you will pass the former Grand Hôtel des Bains, the setting for Thomas Mann's novel "Death in Venice".

Artemisia, the hotel's restaurant, serves seasonal Italian food at dinner. There's also a Thai spa, which has a Turkish bath, a Finnish sauna and a hot tub. Classic rooms are decorated in 19th-century style. Wi-Fi is free.
