Gritti Palace, Venice

There are few more prestigious settings in the whole of Venice, almost nowhere more splendid, and only a couple of palaces with a more illustrious past. Built in 1525, Gritti Palace was the regal residence of Doge Andrea Gritti and he was obviously a man who saw the value of an incomparable location.

Make Gritti Palace part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Italy and you’ll be enjoying in an imposing palazzo on the banks of the Grand Canal. You’ll be overlooking Santa Maria della Salute, and staying within a leisurely stroll of Piazza San Marco and the major sights of Venice.

You’ll also have privileged access to the Venice Lido. You’ll be able to dine in some splendour at Club del Doge and drink elegant cocktails in Bar Longhi.
