The Gritti Palace, Venice, Italy
The Hotel Gritti Palace is a unique facility that offers traditional Venetian style and elegance located on the Grand Canal. It was built in 1525 and was the private residence of the Doge of Venice, Andrea Gritti. It is still preserved and has been remodeled offering all the amenities and services that guarantee a comfortable stay. The hotel is wonderfully decorated with unique Venetian antiques, special rugs and fantastic glass light fixtures hand made from the nearby island of Murano.
The Gritti Palace will stand as a refined version of its iconic self: 82 magnificently restored accommodations, each a work of Venetian art in itself, including a collection of 21 sumptuous suites. Of these, ten unique suites are inspired after famous past guests such as Hemingway, Somerset Maugham, Ruskin, and Peggy Guggenheim, after art and cultural institutions.
