Discover the Soul of Venice with Leica

Explore Venice

With Leica binoculars

Join Paolo Lorenzoni, General Manager of The Gritti Palace, as he explores his personal view of the lagoon city through the eyes of the Leica binoculars.

Venice is much more than gondolas and canals and Mr. Lorenzoni discovered La Serenissima off the tourist path. Hidden art treasures, untouched nature and handmade arts, join us to explore the city of Venice.

A spectacular view

360° over Venice

From The Gritti Palace, there is much to see with the assistance of the Leica binoculars. From the terrace of the beautiful Terrazza Redentore suite, see the stunning Santa Maria della Salute church, or watch the angel atop the building of Punta della Dogana which gently twirls in the breeze.

With Leica binoculars, you can be sure it's all in the detail. Our General Manager Paolo Lorenzoni, who has long been a lover of the city of Venice, has enjoyed discovering all the finer details of the city around him as he re-discovers Venice through the Leica lens.
