33 Giudecca, Venice, Italy

Quiet Giudecca—the only “downtown” Venetian island not connected to the others by bridge—has lately become the center of the exclusive Venice scene. The Bauer opened here in 2006 in a former convent designed by famed Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio, and was converted with respect for the space: Venetian terrazzo floors, original open-brickwork walls, and antique furnishings now grace the impeccable interiors. Trelliswork stencils and Murano-glass lanterns add intimacy to the 58 rooms and 21 suites. The best rooms have Canaletto-worthy views of Venice and St. Mark’s across the water.
