A Venetian palace hideaway set in the heart of the Floating City, Ca’ di Dio blends history with luxurious modernity. While parts of the hotel’s building date back to 1272, its latest guise gives it a flawless 21st century update that reflects the surroundings in every detail. Located at the entrance to the Arsenale district where the famous Art Biennale is held, Ca’ di Dio is the perfect palace to call home while you explore the city.
Every detail in its bedrooms and suites showcases Italian design, from jewel-bright Murano glass lamps, to fine, locally made fabrics and marble-clad bathrooms. Some rooms overlook mimosa and magnolia trees in the hotel’s two peaceful courtyards – others, the lagoon and its fleets of passing gondolas. Splash out on an Altana Suite and enjoy a 360-degree iconic view of San Giorgio and the lagoon from your private terrace. The Venetian theme continues in the charming outdoor VERO Restaurant, with views over the lagoon and dishes inspired by it. The internal courtyard of Essentia Restaurant offers another option for al fresco dining during the summer, whilst local ingredients infuse the classic cocktails served at Alchemia Bar.
Beyond Ca’ di Dio’s peaceful walls, one of the world’s most iconic cities awaits. The hotel’s concierge will guide the guests to uncover the real cultural, historical and artistic secrets of Venice. Spend days wandering narrow alleyways and breathtaking squares. Or hail a gondola directly from the hotel and see the sights in classic Venetian style.
