You would like to stay in relative proximity to Venice’s main attractions, but away from the bustle and noise of the town? This is only seemingly impossible. All you need to do is bring deep pockets and rent a room in the Hotel Cipriani. This hotel that was opend in 1959 by the founder of the famous Harry’s Bar, is an elegant retreat in the middle of Venice. Almost every room is furnished according to a different style, from 18th century Venetian to unobtrusively modern. All rooms have the reputation to be amongst the most stylish in Venice. There is an Olympic sized swimming pool in the beautiful garden. This garden also connects the Palazzo Vendramin built in the 15th century that is also a part of the hotel. It is ideal for guests who desire even more privacy and a stay there comes with a private butler.
