You will find the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal a stone’s throw from St. Mark’s Square, looking out over the point where the Grand Canal meets the waters of St. Mark’s Basin.
The hotel is set against one of Venice’s most fascinating and evocative backdrops, from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the Basilica della Salute, Punta della Dogana and the islands of Giudecca and San Giorgio, alongside Ca’ Giustinian, historic Biennial venue.
St. Mark’s Square has ancient origins going back to 828 A.D. and has always had a troubled history, loaded with historical and civil significance. Centre of Venetian commercial life, right from the start the square was constantly enlarged with new buildings and structures until it became the square we know today.
The Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal is easy to reach by various means of transport. The vaporetto landing stage is in front of the hotel. If you prefer, our private dock for taxis is at your disposal: you will enter directly in the heart of the hotel and if you want the romance, the gondolas have their statius right outside our terrace – restaurant.
