Steeped in history, the opulent Aman Venice features original artwork and panoramic views of the Grand Canal. Situated in the heart of the city, the hotel is conveniently located for exploring on foot.
Open all year round, the Danieli is made up of three palaces. The first, Palazzo Dandolo, dates from the 14th century. It later expanded to include two further buildings: The Casanuova, erected in the 17th century, and The Excelsior, built in the 1930s. Each palazzo (palace) has its own unique style and decor relevant to the époque in which it was erected. As soon as you enter the property, or consider its prime location next to the Doge’s Palace, you instantly understand how important the Dandolo family were during the Republic. The rooms are large and lavish, with breathtaking paintings and frescoed ceilings.
