Find the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal in a unique position in Venice. You can enjoy a breathtaking view on the Grand Canal, the Basilica della Salute, Punta della Dogana and the islands of Giudecca and San Giorgio. Enter the Hotel , you are following in the steps of Giacomo Casanova, in a mansion once owned by the aristocratic Dandolo family and which, from 1638, accommodated the first public “Ridotto”, a place where the aristocracy and all sorts of people “retreated” for gambling, the pleasures of the courtesans, social and political relations. Giacomo Casanova considered this place the ideal backdrop for his conquests and the goliardic way of life.
A priceless location, maybe unique to live and feel the true soul of Venice…You will find the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal a stone’s throw from St. Mark’s Square, looking out over the point where the Grand Canal meets the waters of St. Mark’s Basin. The hotel is set against one of Venice’s most fascinating and evocative backdrops, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the Basilica della Salute, Punta della Dogana and the islands of Giudecca and San Giorgio, alongside Ca’ Giustinian, historic Biennial venue.”
