Touted as the most romantic Italian city, Venice is sure to seduce even the most well-traveled visitor. Its canals and waterways make getting around the city an experience that our Venice hotel guests will long remember.
Traveling via streets of water, visitors will see plenty of pontes. Italian for “bridge,” pontes are critical for traveling from your Venice accommodations on foot. And forget hailing a cab in this car-free zone—instead, you can hop aboard a vaporetti (waterbuses) between tours of the Marciano Museum or Palazzo Grassi and shows at La Fenice operhouse in this arts-centric city.
Of course no visit to this city would be complete without splurging with a day of shopping. Offering clothes and accessories by Prada, Gucci, Missoni and Versace, Venice presents our hotel’s guests with excellent opportunities to purchase investment pieces designed by fashion’s most iconic designers.
After a long day of shopping, do as the Venetians do and sit down for an aperitivo at one of the local bars, such as Harry’s. This Italian tradition of enjoying a late-afternoon glass of wine and appetizers before the evening begins will certainly become a favorite daily activity for our Venice hotel guests.
