Situated amidst beautiful gardens on Giudecca Island, Hotel Cipriani is five minutes from St. Mark's Square by the hotel's own launch. Fifty-four rooms, and 52 suites and junior suites offer superb views of the lagoon to the south, the Palladian San Giorgio Maggiore to the east or the walled gardens and vineyards to the west. The Cipriani's gardens contain the only swimming pool (Olympic-size, saltwater and heated) and tennis court in the center of Venice. And while Venice is a city rich in art galleries, cultural treasures and glass works, day trips (should curiosity move you) to Padua, Vicenza and Verona are quite easily arranged.
What a romantic indulgence the Hotel Cipriani & Palazzo Vendramin was for this overworked, vacation-hungry couple! After a five-minute motor launch ride from St. Mark's Square, we arrived at this palatial hotel, where the pampering and extravagance continued. Part of the Orient-Express Hotels, Trains & Cruises collection, the hotel boasts picture-perfect lagoon views and the splendid Cip's restaurant (ask for a table on the terrace, overlooking the city). Stop by the new Fortuny Bar for a Bellini (peach-infused Champagne) - the now-popular cocktail was invented here!
