As sumptuous and romantic as the city itself, Aman Venice (formerly the Palazzo Papapdopoli) possesses an air of rare exclusivity. Hidden within the San Polo district, this stunning five-star property has been the site of high-society soirees since the 16th century.

The 24 bedrooms have been slotted into many of the palazzo’s original spaces, its intimidate boutique size exuding a warm, homely vibe. High ceilings, elaborate chandeliers, silk wall coverings and Aman’s signature minimalist aesthetics are joined by two private outdoor gardens and a small rooftop rarely seen in the city.

The embracing atmosphere of the hotel captivated Hollywood power couple George and Amal Clooney who selected the ultra-luxe venue for their wedding reception.

Dining can be as sumptuous or straightforward as the occasion demands. There are two restaurants on the piano nobile where guests dine under frescoed ceilings with menus presided over by Italy’s acclaimed Michelin-starred chef Davide Oldani.

The rooftop bar is renowned as one of the best locations in the city to view a sunset, with its red-silk walls, ornately carved statues and elegant views over the canal.
