Palazzo Pisani Moretta
Elise and Frank reach the Hotel Daniel, as we can read on the external curtains, in reality, that is the entrance of Palazzo Pisani Moretta. Even the view from the balcony isn’t from the Hotel Danieli since the Rialto Bridge is not visible from St. MArk’s Basin, where the hotel is actually located.
Peggy Guggenheim Collection
The romantic restaurant where Elise and Frank have their first dinner is located on the floating platform facing the Peggy Guggenheim Collection building.
During the chase, Frank walks on the roofs of several houses, reaching the famous lodge of the Rialto Market.
Wearing a pajama, he jumps down the lodge, falling right on a stand. We recommend you to spend a morning here to discover a piece of Venetian history.
Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana
The office of the Italian police is inside the beautiful Marciana library, in St. Mark’s Square. You can recognize it from the view of the Doge’s palace behind Frank
Scuola Grande di Santa Maria della Misericordia
This ancient building is located off the beaten path, but it deserves a visit for the beautiful frescos it has inside, at least.
In The Tourist, this is the location where the ball feast takes places.
Arsenale di Venezia
The heart of the naval power of Venice, the Arsenal, represents the Interpol’s headquarters in The Tourist. Here, Venice used to built its unsinkable ships in secret. Inside the Arsenal area, there’s also the Naval Museum.
