“16th century palace on the Grand Canal”

In a city so beautiful it has inspired replica designs, there are still rarified experiences to be had for the chosen few. Historic architectural details in a former palace, an exclusive jetty on the Grand Canal, and private gardens on the iconic waterway – this is a Venetian hideaway that defines romance. You can head out to explore the city (via the formal porta d’acqua entrance which opens directly onto the water) or just stay in and call it a day, but before deciding either way, indulge yourself in a mosey around the truly splendid hotel grounds.

Aman Venice

Aman Venice’s home on the Grand Canal is the 16th century Palazzo Papadopoli, one of the city’s most significant buildings. The great 18th century painter Tiepolo once lived here, and his frescoes adorn the walls of many of the rooms. In the 19th century, the presiding Papadopoli family turned adjoining buildings into two gardens that, today, are among the city’s rarest private green spaces.

Lagoon aperitivo on the boat
Lagoon aperitivo on the boat
"In the late afternoon, head down the Grand Canal to the west and take the small canals out to the Giudecca and into the lagoon. Here is where the sun sets over charming islands, and traditional fishing nets are an integral part of authentic lagoon life. Take your aperitivo with a selection of Venetian cichetti and enjoy the views."
Gourmet market tours
Gourmet market tours
"Sprawling over colonnaded squares beside the canal, the Rialto market has been the gastronomic heart of the city for almost 1,000 years. Join Aman’s chef on a morning market tour, and discover seasonal, Veneto-grown fruits and vegetables, and a vast selection of fresh-from-the-lagoon fish and seafood, before returning to Aman Venice to sample the morning’s finds in a traditional Venetian lunch."
The hidden gardens of Venice
The hidden gardens of Venice
"In a city of water and stone, green spaces come as small revelations. Among the alleyways and canals, private gardens are tucked away like secrets; often, the only giveaway being a cascade of wisteria over a balustrade. Discover these hidden enclaves of natural beauty with a personal tour of Venice’s most alluring gardens, including that of Casanova’s childhood home, and explore a world of powder-pink roses, manicured hedgerows, vegetable gardens, beds of lavender, and loggias enwrapped by Virginia creeper."
Palazzo Ducale
Palazzo Ducale

"The Palazzo Ducale is one of the wonders of Venice, and the original Palazzo dates from the ninth century. The Secret Itinerary takes you to the hidden corners of the Palazzo Ducale on a special private visit that includes access to the rest of the Palace. A very special private visit is possible for Aman Venice guests after closing time, between 7pm and 10pm."

A box at the opera

Aman Venice guests have access to a private box, allowing guests a privileged view of the iconic stage. The experience includes boat transfers, aperitivi and, afterwards, dinner at Aman Venice."
