Occupying a sumptuous 15th century palazzo overlooking the most attractive stretch of the Grand Canal, The Gritti Palace was once home to a Doge and occupies a quiet square away from the hustle. Recently restored, it’s an education in Venetian splendour. Located directly on the Grand Canal itself, the Gritti Palace was home to the Gritti family in the fifteenth century and has now been restored as a luxury hotel. Over the centuries, the hotel has welcomed kings and queens, prime ministers and presidents. Distinguished elegance, fine art, and antiques abound in both public and private rooms, with beautifully modern facilities throughout.
Best time to be there
Coastal areas and the islands are great year round, although July and August can be very hot. The arts and opera seasons are generally at their peak outside these months. August is very much a shut down month as Italians take their annual break.
