I was so pleasantly impressed by my room overlooking the gardens and the canals, that I passed an entire afternoon resting on my enormous bed and I recollected my energies for a very important business event. The memory of that August afternoon still fills me with pleasure
An aristocratic ‘palazzo’ overlooking St. Mark’s Square and the Island of San Giorgio, a corner of pure romanticism in the world’s most romantic city. The Baglioni Hotel Luna welcomes guests in its sumptuous interiors, furnished with exquisite textiles and noble woods, in elegant, neutral shades. This is the perfect backdrop to enjoy the breathtaking views that can be glimpsed through its windows and terraces, where Venice’s monumental treasures are so close that you almost feel you can touch them. Starting from the time you wake up in the hotel’s soft beds decorated with distinctive headboards – and continuing with breakfast, served in the Salone Marco Polo, entirely frescoed by the pupils of Tiepolo, the Baglioni Hotel Luna is cloaked in an exclusive, intimate atmosphere. A must-try is the twin-level Giorgione Terrace Suite, whose special feature is the Altana, a typically Venetian raised wooden terrace. The cosy, intimate Canova Restaurant, the winner of several prestigious awards including the Gambero Rosso, offers the best of traditional Venetian cuisine, and is the ideal spot for romantic dinners. To enjoy a pre-dinner drink, head to the Caffè Baglioni, the hotel’s stylish bar overlooking a small canal, which offers guests a breathtaking view over the Giardini Reali, or Royal Gardens.
