Cima Rosa

A passion for living

Cima Rosa was created by a dynamic duo with an enormous sense of passion for living. This boutique 5 bedroom bed & breakfast is a labor of love and you feel this from the moment you step inside the palazzo’s walls. Their excitement and pride towards their city and culture is truly alive and revealed in both their interiors and detailed recommendations. Having lived in Venice for generations they offer exceptional local knowledge to help you plan your day providing you with a unique opportunity to maximize your stay and discover the Venice that is most appealing to you.

They are located in a 15th century palazzo on the Grand Canal in the Santa Croce neighborhood around the corner from the San Stae vaporetto stop. In this neighborhood, the essence of everyday Venetian life is a main characteristic. You will feel like a local walking down the streets, crossing the canals or sipping wine in the nearby Campo. They are surrounded by some of Venice's most desired local restaurants - Zucca, Muro Pizza, Da Fiore to name a few, caffe's and museums - . Arriving to CimaRosa is simple, there is a direct boat line on the Alilaguna from the Marco Polo Airport to San Stae that takes aprox. 50minutes. San Stae is three stops on the Vaporetto from the Train Station and four stops from Piazzale Roma Car Park.
