Located in the Cannaregio district, 5 minutes on foot from the Rialto and 10 minutes, also on foot, from Saint Mark's Square, Hotel Mignon holds a privileged position in the historical center of Venice.
The line 1 stop at Ca’d’Oro by the vaporetto that goes by the Canal Grande, the main water artery in Venice, is a mere 3 minutes from the Hotel. The city's most important cultural and artistic places can be accessed pleasantly by boat: the Gallerie dell’Accademia, the Guggenheim Collection, the 17th century Chiesa della Salute, all the way to Saint Mark's Square and the Palazzo Ducal.
The vaporetto makes a stop at the Giardini, where both the art and architecture Biennale take place, and then on to the final stop at the Lido, Venice's beach where every year on the first of September the famous Cinema festival takes place. An absolute must stop to experience life as in 18th century Venice, also so typical of the Mignon, are the Venetian Museo del Settecento at Ca’ Rezzonico and the Museo di Palazzo Mocenigo. Ca’ Rezzonico can be reached by vaporetto in a quarter hour: throughout the many rooms, among furniture and decor from the 18th century, original plaster decorations, friezes and frescos, the well-known paintings of Longhi, Tiepolo, and landscape masters like Canaletto and Guardi can be appreciated.
The beautiful and complete reconstruction of Farmacia ai do San Marchi can be seen on the 3rd floor: the rooms, wooden decor, glass and majolica vases all date from the late 18th century.
Palazzo Mocenigo is only 3 minutes away by vaporetto, at the San Stae stop. Here too, decoration is from the 1700s with a precious collection of costumes and fabrics dating from the 14th to the 20th century with those from the 18th century particularly notable for their embroidery and lace, testimonials of Venetian elegance renowned the world over.
