The Gritti Palace, Venice, Italy

The luxury Italian hotel in Venice, Italy occupies a palace that dates from 1475 and was owned by Andrea Gritti, Doge of Venice from 1523 to 1538. Three years ago it emerged from a 15-month restoration that involved the revamping of the entire building, including the rooms, the restoration all of the hotel’s hundreds of precious paintings and other artefacts, and the addition of a small (two double treatment rooms) but exquisite Acqua di Parma spa. So clients on a luxury trip of Italy can now have a luxury spa experience in Venice, Italy. The Club de Doge restaurant has one of the most beautiful dining rooms in Venice or any other city.
