You’ll spend the next three nights exploring Venice from the grand Belmond Hotel Cipriani, one of the city’s most celebrated luxury hotels. Sprawled over a peaceful estate on leafy Giudecca Island just across the water from the hustle and bustle of St Mark’s Square, this elegant base overlooks the Doge’s Palace and boasts a Michelin star restaurant, indulgent spa and Venice’s most fabulous swimming pool.
Discover the city’s many cultural treasures
Enjoy three days of leisurely exploration as you uncover Venice’s cultural treasures in inimitable style with a range of expert-led tours. Hop on Belmond Hotel Cipriani’s private launch to the mainland to explore world-famous sites including the Doge’s Palace and the Basilica; and visit endless galleries in the artistic enclave of Dorsoduro and San Polo with an art expert. You can also stop off at some of the city’s famous islands, including the glass-making island of Murano and the lace-making island of Burano.
Mainstream attractions aside, the hotel also offers a range of authentic experiences that enable guests to really get under the skin of this incredible destination. Enjoy a private tour of the Museum of Perfume, learning about the city’s history with fragrance and watching as new scents are created in a working laboratory; and enjoy exclusive after-hours access to the Querini Stampalia house museum, admiring the property’s rich furnishings, tapestries, marble busts and magnificent paintings. Take a guided evening walk around the city’s bacari (traditional trattoria) and go kayaking through the lagoon and its tranquil canals. The possibilities are endless!
