Enjoy Unforgettable City Skyline from This Paradise
A five star luxurious hotel located just ten minutes from Venice’s city centre. A place to unwind, relax and enjoy great service that will be sure to make your stay a memorable one.
We were impressed by the comfortable and luxurious guest rooms on at this Top Secret Hotel, all with en suite (and a generous helping of complimentary toiletries), air conditioning, daily housekeeping, a safe, telephone, internet, work desk and mini-bar.
In the local area
The hotel offers good access to the city centre and major attractions. Our top pick on land is the San Marco Piazza, a beautiful square in the heart of Venice where one can enjoy architectural delights such as St Mark’s Basilica, Doges Palace and an impressive clock tower.
A holiday in Venice wouldn’t be the same without a stunning gondola ride along the many waterways, some of the rides will also take you to the islands, each one unique in their own way. Prices vary – a 6 seat gondola costs between €60-80 for forty minutes, but one can often add additional time at a discount or save by booking online.
Murcho Island is very popular with tourists, famous for its glass blowing and sculpting, there are many winding roads and places to see while visiting the island. If you are happy to travel a little further, Burcho Island is alive with brightly coloured buildings; a delightful place to spend the day.
Venturing further along the waterways from Venice one can find Torcello Island, an outdoor lover’s paradise; go hiking in the nature reserve or wander the picturesque fields. There are roughly twenty residents on the island and because it’s a fair distance from Venice centre it doesn’t get that busy, ideal if you want to get away from the crowds for the day.
For food lovers, the Rialto markets are a must! Servicing the Venetians since 1097, the markets offer a vast selection of fruit, veg, meat and fresh fish – a great (and free) way to experience the Venetian culture.
For arts, Venice is packed with some of the finest galleries in the world, and there is no shortage of afternoon and evening theatre shows including ballet, local performances and symphony. Enquire for tickets at the hotel.
Last but not least, don’t miss a trip to Campanile, the tallest building in the city which dates back to the 9th-century. Take the lift to the top to experience the best panoramic views of Venice’s city centre and waterways; an experience you won’t forget!
