We look forward to welcoming you all to an evening of food and fun, at Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal. The hotel is located in the heart of Venice, just a stone’s throw from St. Mark’s Square. The hotel has elegant surroundings steeped in history, it is the former palace of the Dandolo family, and housed during the 15th century the earliest "Ridotto" of the city, a sort of retreat for people looking for different kinds of leisure: courtesans, gamblers, brawls and political plots. The structure has a rich and picaresque past and Giacomo Casanova especially enjoyed it, being one of its famous and frequent visitors, providing the ideal backdrop for his conquests. The hotel offers stunning views of the Grand Canal, the church of Santa Maria della Salute and the island of San Giorgio.
