41 Lungomare Marconi, Venice, 30126, Italy

The 178-room Hotel Excelsior, on the Venetian island of Lido, first opened in 1908, and has remained one of Italy’s top-notch luxury hotels for more than a century. Inside, Moroccan design touches—such as a courtyard fountain, arched entryways, and ornate, jewel-toned furnishings—help to create an exotic feel, and glimpses of the Venetian Lagoon and the Adriatic Sea catch your eye anywhere you look. The waterfront hotel is just a 15-minute water-taxi ride from Venice proper; to get you there, the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service from its private pier. Return for an alfresco dinner at the hotel’s candlelit La Terrazza, one of Venice’s iconic dining spots.
