The Explorer's Library

A rare collection of treasured antiques





A den of antiquity

A place to relax

Discover an exclusive collection of treasures in the intimate environment of the library. The Explorer's Library invites guests to explore a unique selection of precious handcrafted treasures and beautiful books in Venice on the shelves of the exquisite wood-panelled room.

The library was designed to create the illusion of visiting someone's grand home, with homely touches including vintage astrolabes and a handpicked assortment of books on discovery. The stage is set to be reminiscent of the home of a global explorer, collecting rare handcrafted pieces to bring back as memories around the home.

"The Gritti is a magical place – you feel it the instant you step off the boat and onto the terrace. You feel it standing in the Explorer's Library. It's a storied place – steeped in history and lore." - Waris Ahluwalia, Global Explorer for The Luxury Collection
