Bauer Il Palazzo, Venice, Italy

With walls covered with the finest Rubelli and Bevilacqua fabrics, gilt mirrors, carved stucco ceilings and Murano-glass chandeliers which tinkle in the warm breeze, Bauer Il Palazzo is near-perfect in its execution.

One of Venice’s most prestigious addresses, Bauer Il Palazzo’s majesty is second-to-none.

Lovingly restored after the crumbling Bauer building was rescued in 1997 to create this stunning boutique hotel, it’s now a period piece in a superior location, with panoramic pinch-yourself views over the Grand Canal and an exclusive rooftop terrace. ​

​Sumptuous and astonishingly-beautiful interiors are reminiscent of an opulent Venetian Palace and you can be assured of the most personalised service.

Not only that, you'll be able to enjoy award-winning Venetian and Mediterranean cuisine, including the De Pisis restaurant, set along the Grand Canal with views looking out to the famous Chiesa di Santa Maria della, and one of Venice's most sought-after culinary experiences.
