Fondamenta Santa Chiara

Hello we are in Venice for 3 days arriving at Piazzale Roma , after 3 days embarking a cruise ship we have found an apartment on Fondamenta Santa Chiara directly on the canal next to the water buses, our only concern is safety and noise for this area , what time do water buses run until is it likely to be very noisy and busy?

It could be quite noisy, depends somewhat where on Fond.Santa Chiara,

Water Buses run 24/7 but a limited service at night,

A great many water bus lines call along Fondamenta S. Chiara. The Fondamenta is very close to Piazzale Roma where all the buses, coaches and land taxis terminate. It is particularly busy early in the morning as workers arrive from Mestre for all the Hotels, shops etc. in Venice.

I would not advise a good place to stay, much better further into Venice

That is a most unfortunate location in Venice to stay. It is noisy, busy, fifty metres from Venice’s biggest supermarket and fifty metres for the termination point for land transport.

Cancel if you can.

I have to agree with Peter above. Try to make a change if you can.

we have not booked it , I wanted to research first It is a good price and very handy but if its going to be too busy and too noisy No not a good choice. Im struggling to find an apartment close to Piazzale Roma for my budget under £350
