The Hotel Chiara in Venice is conveniently located near the Piazzale Roma, so would be handy for anyone arriving by car or bus. It is also an easy walk from the train station, with only the Calatrava (Constitution) Bridge to negotiate.
Now, rest assured this is not an advertisement for the hotel, but I do bring tidings of planned changes to this place of accommodation.
A few months ago, I had posted some photos of the back of the hotel, here is one of them:
A Facebook friend who is part of an enthusiastic cultural group “Venice for Friends” http://nuke.veniceforfriends.it/ has just posted several informative articles (and photos), on the Facebook site (Venice 4 All Friends), and he kindly gave me permission to use one of the images to show the proposed extensions to this hotel. Thank you Hermann!
To help you get your bearings, that is the Constitution Bridge to the left of the proposed extension, with the Rio Nuovo on the right of the existing hotel.
Well, let’s see how long it takes private industry to bring this to fruition! All bets will be accepted, I get to hold the money.
