Hotel Giorgione's in a great spot, within walking distance of the Rialto Bridge, water taxi and St Mark's Square. The historic stately residence is packed full of Venetian character - with gilded decorations, antique furnishings, period paintings, photographs, sculptures and luxurious fabrics. The staff here are really personal and friendly - so if you need any tips for exploring Veneto, don't hesitate to ask.
The rooms are all uniquely decorated in the same elegant style that runs throughout the hotel. They have all the modern comforts you'll need for a great stay in the city. The continental breakfast each morning is really tasty - there's enough to fill you up for a day of sightseeing.
There's a heated whirlpool in the hotel's courtyard. Its an nice way to relax all year round, but especially in the summer. During the day the area becomes a solarium, so you can soak up the sun on the deck chairs or cool off in the pool. Why not treat yourself and grab a drink from the bar while you're here - you're on holiday after all.
The bed and breakfast board basis means you'll have ample opportunity to try out the excellent eateries of Venice, but if you don't fancy venturing far, the hotel's Osteria Giorgione Restaurant offers up some delicious authentic Venetian cuisine. In the summer you can dine by candle light in the courtyard - it's a pretty beautiful setting.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour by water taxi from Venice Marco Polo airport.
