Hotel Cipriani

    Following an afternoon of shopping and museum-hopping in Venice, Italy, Cipriani guests can retreat to the serenity of a 78-degree saltwater pool. The property’s gardens provide a quiet location for a lovers’ stroll, as does the adjacent vineyard, where the resort makes its own wine, Casanova Salso. A vine-covered walkway connects the Cipriani to the Palazzo Vendramin and Palazzetto Nani-Barbaro, two 15th-century structures with rooms and suites that afford even more privacy than those in the main hotel. Accommodations Forty-three guest rooms and 45 suites in the main hotel. Rooms at the Palazzo Vendramin (three doubles and eight suites) and the Palazzetto Nani-Barbaro (five suites) offer views of St. Mark’s Square. Recreation Spa, gym, red-clay tennis court, yacht harbor, and saltwater pool. Dining Cip’s Club has outdoor seating on a dock that overlooks St. Mark’s. Worthy Diversion A behind-the-scenes tour of the Doge’s Palace, a former government building and home of Venice’s dukes, takes small groups into the jail cell that held Casanova. Rates In season, prices range from $660 for a single to $11,540 for the two-bedroom Palladio Suite in the main hotel; $840 to $6,310 for rooms in the Palazzo Vendramin and Palazzetto Nani-Barbaro. The Cipriani closes for winter.
