Local visitor's guide around Sheraton Hotels

Area & Activities

Local Attractions

Known as an open-air museum, Venice offers an infinite array of interests, culture, and opportunities for relaxation—from inviting beaches to rare artwork and exclusive shopping—all set against the romantic backdrop of the lagoon.

All six of the city’s neighborhoods—sestieri—are easily explored by foot or vaporetto (waterbus). Hotel Danieli guests enjoy particularly easy access to the San Zaccaria vaporetto stop. Also, mere steps away, St. Mark's Square beckons with its many attractions, including the Palazzo Ducale, St. Mark's Basilica and its Byzantine Mosaics, St. Mark's Belltower and its views of Venice, and the romantic Bridge of Sighs. The nearby Piombi prison, where Casanova was imprisoned in 1755, is a delight for history lovers.

A visit would not be complete without a vaporetto tour along the beautiful Grand Canal. Stop along the way to explore local haunts like the bustling fruit, vegetable and fish markets at Rialto. These pescheria and erberia are a source of the freshest produce and seafood for Venice’s best restaurants and locals alike. For the culinary-minded, the bacari (wine bars) serve regional wines alongside the famous chicheti or small appetizers—a delightful way to start any evening. Every July, La Festa del Redentore takes place in front of the hotel on the waters of St. Mark’s Basin, culminating in a magnificent firework display at midnight. Enjoy the unparalleled view of the festivities from our rooftop Restaurant Terrazza Danieli.

Directly outside the hotel, water taxis await to whisk visitors on trips to the major lagoon islands—explore Lido for its beaches, Burano for its lacework, Murano for its handcrafted glass, and Torcello for its unpopulated charm. Or leave the city entirely, for a tour of the splendid Venetian Villas on the Brenta Riviera—many designed by the renowned architect Palladio.
