Lavish luxury in the heart of historic Venice
City | History & culture | Short break
With such a famous location, it’s little wonder that Baglioni Hotel Luna is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World. It’s found at the centre of this ancient republic, overlooking San Giorgio Island and the San Marco Basin. You can even arrive directly via the private jetty; for the true Venetian experience, opt for a gondola. Head the other way, and you’ll be greeted by the architectural delights of St. Mark’s Square along with such names as the historic Harry’s Bar, the Palazzo Ducale and the Bridge of Sighs. And, as you’re in the art form’s homeland, why not catch a show at the 18th century Venice Opera House? It’s just a few minutes’ walk away.
Housed in an aristocratic Venetian palace, this luxurious offering features silk-panelled walls and frescoes by the pupils of Tiepolo. The Venetian style continues into the rooms where Baroque prints line the walls and gilded furnishing furthers the elegance. However, it’s the original Murano chandeliers that are the most impressive. Deluxe rooms add in marble bathrooms while suites offer views over St. Mark’s Basin and the island of San Girogio or the city’s canals that run along St. Mark’s square and the Royal Gardens. Upgrade to a named suite for private terraces and truly opulent furnishings.
Savour the best of Venetian culinary traditions at the Canova Restaurant, winner of the Fogher d’Oro and Gambero Rosso awards. Chef Daniele Zennaro prepares such fine treats as herb-marinated salmon with mango and Greek yoghurt using only the finest of ingredients. As such, given that you’re in Venice, expect a wide range of seafood along with such regional favourites as liver with grilled polenta and beef fillet. Having co-authored Gluten Free d’Autore, the chef is particularly known for his flexible cooking and has cooked for such celebrity has Al Pacino. His other passion is foraged food, broadening his culinary horizons with seasonal herbs.
You’ll take your breakfast under the grand 18th century painted ceilings of the Marco Polo Ballroom before perhaps enjoying a drink at the canal-facing Caffè Baglioni. Here you’ll enjoy views over the famous Giardini Reali of Piazza San Marco. Baglioni Luna, however, is more concerned with preserving its aristocratic sensibilities than laying on resort-style facilities. That said, your stunning room will be improved by complimentary WiFi.
