Few cities can match the sheer elegance and romance of Italy’s canal-strewn wonder of Venice. Why not complete it with a stay in one of its most elegant abodes – the elegant and classic Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli, a Venetian palace that played host to Mozart and European royalty?

A 16th-century base with plenty history and charm to its name, this hotel certainly oozes class and elegance. The former home of Doge Marco Foscarini, it mixes period styling with modern décor and a splash of decadence within its four-star rooms. Sat beside the iconic Grand Canal, with spectacular views galore, you’re merely a gondola ride away from Venice’s most famous sights – not to mention its many trendy shops, cafes and bars, all awaiting your eager eyes and tastebuds.


  • The beautifully ornate and lavish Venetian furnished rooms
  • Watching the world cruise by with stunning views over the Grand Canal
  • Sharing a palace with such illustrious former residents as Mozart and the King of Denmark
  • Watching world-famous Murano glass being made, with a visit to Murano Island
