The Best of Venice

Home to merchants, royalty, artists and explorers, the hotel, like the city, is steeped in legend and character. The traditional build with stone, columned balconies is flanked by the Grand Canal with its luminous quality of shifting light, and a private pontoon to welcome guests. Behind, lies the street of Calle XXII Marzo, full of elite boutiques, and contemporary art galleries, and access to Grand Teatro La Fenice, the city’s temple of opera. With Piazza San Marco just four minutes’ walk from the hotel, Venice’s treasures are within easy discovery.

Local Area & Activity Highlights

Claude Monet's Venice

Fascinated by Venice’s passage of light, in 1908, the illustrious impressionist painter Claude Monet took residence at The St. Regis Venice, at the time Grand Hotel Britannia, challenging the eternal beauty of the city. Start your day in a botanical breakfast at Gio’s in our Italianate private garden from where you can admire the same perspectives that inspired Monet and his masterpieces. Continue your day exploring the beautiful Venetian treasures captured by the artist. 

Carlo Scarpa's Venice

Architecture in Venice is a breathtaking multiplicity of ornamental motifs, where a different decorative aesthetic seeps through every corner of every palazzo. This eclectic layering of styles dissipated in the city is what inspired the Venetian contemporary architect Carlo Scarpa, whose works were in turn a source of inspiration for The St. Regis Venice renovation. Scarpa’s projects are within easy discovery in Venice.
