Posted on 29th March 2012 by

If you are looking for a luxurious place to stay along the Canal Grand, you will find what you’re looking for in the Hotel Gritti Palace. The Hotel is located in the former palace of the Doge Andrea Gritti built in the 16th century. His portrait is exhibited in the hotel alongside the portraits of every celebrity that stayed here over the course of the centuries. The 90 units, which’s prices start at €950 per night, are furnished with antiquities and often have connecting doors that allow friends and family members staying in adjacent rooms, to visit each other. The three suites of the hotel have each a stone balcony that overlooks the Canal Grande. Amenities include WI-FI, non-smoking rooms and, in summer, a complimentary water taxi service to the Hotel Excelsior on the Lido.
