Monaco & Grand Canal
The Hotel, which overlooks the Grand Canal, is in one of Venice's most charming and atmospheric areas. The Hotel Monaco has majestic views of the Church of Santa Maria della Salute and the island of San Giorgio and it is just next to Cà Giustinian the historical site of the Biennale.
Hotel Monaco is fast to get to from both the airport and the train station 45 minutes by water taxi from Marco Polo airport; 20 minutes from Venice train station; 15 minutes from the parking area.
From 1638 the building,originally belonging to the Dandolo family, hosted the first "Ridotto Pubblico", a place to which nobility and people from all walks of life, (adventurers, courtesans, swindlers, and travellers) would retire for pleasure and intrigue. The recent restoration has managed to revive, with a contemporary feel, the atmosphere of this historic building. It is a romantic setting for an unforgettable holiday. Guests can stay in the fascinating hall of the historic "Sala del Ridotto", which has been recently restored or dine in the Grand Canal Restaurant sampling traditional Venetian cuisine.
