Best Hotels in Italy
This historic, ultra-chic luxury hotel is a favorite with celebs in a romantic Grand Canal setting.
In a city built on water, the Aman Canal Grande Venice celebrates its heritage with stunning preserved architecture and a prime location in a historic palazzo situated on one of Venice’s most prestigious waterways. The main living areas feature the glorious Rococo stylings of Michelangelo Guggenheim, and some rooms still boast the original frescoes dating back to the 1500s. The hotel houses 24 distinctive guest accommodations that reflect the property’s storied past, all while offering updated modern amenities and furnishings. Generous rooms in four different categories give guests plenty of space to spread out and relax with airy high ceilings, king-sized beds, armoires, separate living areas, high-end bathrooms and dedicated dressing areas. Breathtaking views look out over a lovely private garden or the Grand Canal itself. No need to worry about parking; most guests arrive via gondola, entering into the hotel’s reception lobby from the landing dock; this stunning lobby then flows up a two-level staircase into a ballroom, bar and lounge area. A salon, library, game room, meeting room, rooftop terrace, full-service spa and small workout facility complete the hotel's offerings.
