A scenic mooring for river ships, barges, and yachts

Riva dei Sette Martiri from LA BELLA VITA

The Riva dei Sette Martire is a broad expanse of waterfront promenade facing St. Mark's Basin, between the Piazza San Marco and Venice's Public Gardens.

Together with its neighboring stretches of riva, Sette Martiri is a mooring place for river vessels, hotel barges, and large yachts.

If you're cruising from Venice on a ship like Uniworld's River Countess or La Bella Vita of European waterways, you'll spend a night here during your cruise. (Embarkation and disembarkation will be at Marittima or San Basilio.)


  • From the Riva dei Sette Martire, you can easily walk to the Piazza San Marco in about 10 minutes. (It's a pleasant stroll along the waterfront, with romantic views at night.)
  • The nearest ACTV waterbus stops are Arsenale (to the west) and Giardini (slightly east, toward the Public Gardens and Biennale art pavilions).
