Discover the city of canals
Explore the lagoons
Let us be your guide
With a long history and a unique urban shape, Venice holds much to be explored. Whether travelers are seeking a cultural discovery, a taste of delicious Italian cuisine or a day at the Lido beach, the city has something for everyone, with many unmissable events throughout the year such as the Redentore fireworks.
Within walking distance of the hotel, stroll to St. Mark's Square to unveil the mysteries of Venice at Palazzo Ducale, explore the basilica and its Byzantine mosaics, climb the belltower for amazing views and see the renowned Bridge of Sighs. Go slightly off the tourist track to the Rialto markets with our Epicurean School tour, pausing for a bite in a traditional bacaro to taste cicchettì and a glass of Prosecco.

For the most incredible sunrise and just steps away from The Gritti Palace, head to the Accademia Bridge to literally take your breath away. It's worth the early wake up.
