Cheap hotels in San Marco, Venice
Located to the east of the Grand Canal, the San Marco neighborhood is the city's commercial, tourist and religious core. The magnificent Piazza San Marco and Saint Mark's Basilica attract wandering tourists (and hungry pigeons) like a magnet. The Rialto Bridge on the north side of San Marco is a beautiful, bustling mess, where boats unload, tourists amass and pricey boutiques hawk their wares. Between the landmarks, countless churches, restaurants, shops and sights make San Marco the busiest neighborhood in Venice. Things calm down a bit around the southern part of San Marco near the Accademia Bridge, in the area surrounding Campo San Stefano. Dominated by the San Stefano church, the streets on the southern end are filled with performers, little shops, restaurants and far fewer tourists.
Address Calle Larga 658 (San Marco)
The Hotel Ai Do Mori is the closest thing to sleeping inside San Marco's Basilica, but simple enough to keep you on a proper Cheapo budget.
