Position

Hotel Capri is located in a characteristic Corte (very small square) in the heart of the most authentic Venice, close to Piazzale Roma, the car terminal, and to the airport shuttle and to the Venice station of Santa Lucia. Centrally located yet away from the tourist bustle, Hotel Capri enjoys an enviable position among the hotels in Venice. In the maze of narrow streets and small squares around the hotel, students and professors from the prestigious Università di Venezia Ca' Foscari pour down to small shops, bookstores, cafes and bacari (the typical Venetian inns). This area is located between Corte de le Case Nove, where Hotel Capri stands, Tolentini, the architecture site, and Campo Santa Margherita, the great meeting place near Ca' Foscari. The bohemian atmosphere and the cultural movement at night, and the picturesque liveliness during the day, make this neighborhood so original and pleasant that it can be compared to the Latin quarters of Paris.
