HOTEL CIPRIANI Venice, Italy
Hotel Cipriani is closed from 10 November 2013 to 16 March 2014.View website >
Hotel Cipriani sits beside the Venetian lagoon looking out across the water towards the Doge's Palace. Minutes after admiring the Basilica's mosaics, you can travel by launch to the hotel's jetty and soon be luxuriating by the Olympic-sized pool. Adjacent to the hotel is Palazzo Vendramin, a romantic 15th-century palace with spectacular views. Life progresses as if in a dream: breakfast watching boats drift by, lunch on a private terrace, a treatment in the spa, dinner in a garden lit by lanterns. Stay in an exceptional suite, such as the Palladio, with its own private mooring and a 180-degree panorama across the waters to iconic architecture and islands.
