About the Hotels:

Hotel Monaco & Palazzo Selvadego

The Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal is a genuine monument to “Venetianity”, well known for its legendary terrace with views of Punta della Dogana, the Basilica della Salute, the Island of San Giorgio, the Island of Guidecca and the Church of the Redentore.  

Its sister hotel, the Palazzo Selvadego, possesses a late-Gothic facade in Venetian Byzantine style making it one of the most remarkable and significant examples of the Venetian architecture of the late thirteenth century – with all the comfort and amenities you expect for a stay in Venice. Breakfast is served in the restaurant of the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal which is just 70 meters away. 

Hotel Bonvecchiati

The Bonvecchiati is one of Venice’s most well-loved 4 star hotels. Just a stone’s throw from St. Mark’s Square , it offers exclusive services in sophisticated surroundings as well as the privilege of having the water door where you can arrive in comfort by water taxi or set off on an enchanting gondola ride.
