Duodo Palace, Venice
Conveniently located in the heart of Venice, Duodo Palace Hotel is set within a historical building and has been beautifully renovated and restored to create a new four-star hotel in Venice. Saving some of the most important architectural elements from this 600-year-old palazzo, including the frescoed ceilings in each bedroom, the hotel has a truly Venetian feel.
The top floor accommodations offer sweeping views of the city's rooftops and major monuments. Glance below and you can watch a gondola slowly glide by your window.
Relax in the cozy bar, or enjoy a book in the study that has the remains of a piscine – an ancient well – where you can almost hear the voices from the past as they share the day's gossip.
