Please refer to the above map for directions, as street names are not always easy to spot, and bridge names are not indicated.

From the ACTV boat stop, take line 1 or line 2. Both lines run along the Grand Canal. Line 2 (stop at pontoon A on the left opposite the station) takes about 20 min, while the journey with line 1 (stop at pontoon E on the far right outside the railway station), takes about 30 min (more stops). The stop for Istituto Veneto is "Accademia." From the "Accademia" boat stop, turn left, cross the Accademia bridge spanning the Grand Canal and walk past the Palazzo Franchetti garden. The entrance to Palazzo Franchetti is on the right at the end of the garden.
