In 14th century Venice, Catholic leaders and royalty resided in the city’s extraordinary palazzos. At Ca’Pisani Hotel, you’re the guest of just such an authentic hideaway. Relish a room with exposed wood beams and a transporting Jacuzzi tub, perfect for a soak after a long day of taking in this most beautiful city’s alleys, canals, archways and pilasters.
Ease into the day over a cappuccino at nearby Cafè and start your day meandering through the epic Gallerie dell’Accademia nearby, where influential painters Veronese, Tintoretto, Canaletto and others painted canvases with centuries of intrigue and history. Walk around town, camera in hand, capturing extraordinary facades throughout the city. Delight in shrimp scampi at iconic Harry’s Bar for lunch and make your way to Santa Maria del Giglio Square to hop on a carved-wood gondola. After meandering through the iconic Piazza San Marco, dine on Bigoli all’anatra – thick pasta with a duck ragout - at La Caravella.
