In more detail

There’s nothing more quintessentially Venetian than arriving in town on a gondola or polished-wood motorboat. And, you can do just that, with the Baglioni Hotel Luna featuring its own private jetty just off the Grand Canal. As such, you’ll have the heritage beauty of St. Mark’s Square and the famed Bellini cocktails of Harry’s Bar on your doorstep.

The hotel’s privileged setting also means that suites enjoy views over St. Mark’s Basin, the island of San Girogio or along Venice’s canals. They’re sights made that bit prettier by the private terraces. But, as this is an aristocratic palace, you don’t have to upgrade to enjoy a touch of luxury. Expect silk walls and historic frescoes throughout, with Baroque prints and brushed-gold furniture in the rooms. The Murano chandeliers don’t hurt either – neither do the Deluxe rooms’ marble bathrooms.

In turn, the dining is fittingly regal. The award-winning Canova Restaurant keeps Venice culinary tradition alive with dishes such as egg yolk tagliolini and crispy shrimps. Indeed, seafood is a particular speciality with octopus salad and calamari served with a green tomato sauce. The work of executive chef Alberto Rossetti has even garnered a Michelin star for his efforts at Tramezzo di Parma. Lastly, you’ll take your meals in a grand ballroom, its ceilings covered in 18th-century frescoes. For something more casual, head to the Caffè Baglioni. Positioned right on the canal, it’s the perfect place to sip your morning espresso.
