Baglioni Hotel Luna

San Marco 1243, 30124 Venice, Italy

Luna Hotel Baglioni is on Venice’s fabled Grand Canal, steps from the Piazza San Marco. It is about half an hour from The Venezia Marco Polo international airport, or 15 minutes from Venezia Santa Lucia train station.

Like a character from a Donna Leon novel, the Baglioni Hotel Luna is cloaked in history. A stone’s throw from St. Mark’s Square, the palazzo dates to 1118, and throughout the years has undergone transformations from a convent into an aristocratic palace and even a shelter for the Knights Templar. Today’s hotel brims with original details, like ornate stucco walls, Murano chandeliers, watercolor paintings and gold fixtures. In the Marco Polo ballroom, reimagined as a spectacular dining room, the original ceiling frescoes are attributed to pupils of Tiepolo, the 18th century Venetian painter. Instead of playing second fiddle to the priceless art throughout, the culinary offerings hold their own, especially at award-winning Canova restaurant, renowned for its menu and extensive wine cellar from St. Mark’s Square, the Baglioni Hotel Luna is cloaked in Venetian history.
