Veneto

Hotels in Veneto

There are many wonderful hotels in Veneto, from exclusive luxury resorts in Venice to charming country inns in Verona. As Venice is one of the premier destinations in Italy, there are a number of storied and lavish hotels. One of the best hotels in Veneto is the Gritti Palace, a favorite of Peggy Guggenheim, Elizabeth Taylor, and Ernest Hemingway. (Hemingway notoriously played a midnight game of baseball in the lobby.) There are plenty of hotels in Veneto for every budget level. Since Veneto is such a tourist hotspot, there are many clean and well-kept hostels available to students or backpackers. For summering families, there are beautiful villas available for extended rentals in the countryside around Verona and Padua. Veneto hotels offer all the romance of the Renaissance but with the convenience of modern amenities. Whatever accommodations you need, you'll find it in this beautiful region of Italy, most likely in a charming or scenic part of town.

This is Trieste’s hotel—everybody calls it the Duchi; in its present shape, the building has been here since the 1870’s. Harry’s Grill, the hotel restaurant, has a large terrace on the piazza. At teatime in the bar, the waiters, with a little bow, bring drinks on silver trays.
