Area & Activities

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.

Visit nearby towns to enjoy World Heritage sites such as Verona, Padua, and the small towns of Treviso and Asolo, rich in history and beauty. Or explore the lagoons aboard our private Riva yacht.

The Gritti Palace is delighted to provide you with an exclusive range of services in the remarkable destination that is Venice. Whether your interest is history, shopping, art, gourmet dining, recreation, or simple relaxation, our dedicated team of professionals is ready to assist you with every desire.
