Perched on the tip of Giudecca Island, Hotel Cipriani boasts romantic views evocative of a Canaletto painting. Known for its interiors decorated in impeccable Venetian style – rich polished wood floors, ornate lighting and plush furnishings paired to a crisp colour scheme – this picturesque property counts 95 rooms and suites with uninterrupted views of the city. Supreme vistas can be had from the full-length windows of the Palladio Suite, where a living room opens onto a lagoon-view balcony with a 180-degree panorama. Don’t miss the charming Casanova Spa. Set in the lush waterside gardens, it takes its name as a spot where the enigmatic Giacomo Casanova once spent time living life in the means that would inspire his legend.
