The Best Hotels in Venice

While many cities evolve with the times, Venice is a destination lost in time ... and that's what we adore about it. The entire city, even its lagoon, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, rich with Venetian Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Many of these styles are showcased in GAYOT's selection of top ten hotels, in buildings that date as far back as the fourteenth century. Featuring exceptional dining, stunning settings and décor by designers as diverse as Pierre-Yves Rochon and Philippe Starck, our favorite lodgings offer the exclusive opportunity to experience the City of Bridges in style.
