Follow in the footsteps of French nobles and Hollywood stars with a stay in one of the world’s finest hotels. Set on a near-private Venetian island, the Belmond Hotel Cipriani serves up fine dining, spa treatments and antique-furnished extravagances to spectacular views over the lagoon and onto the church spires of Venice. You’ll also explore with private water taxis throughout, enjoying a pair of included excursions. Alongside a sunset cruise and a wine-paired three-course dinner in an exclusive lagoon-side restaurant, a private guide will bring you on a tasting tour of Venice’s secret tapas and wine bars.

Day 1

Arrive in Venice

You’ll arrive at the airport by way of private chauffeur transfer and enjoy complimentary VIP lounge access before your flight. Then, once landed in Venice, you’ll be brought aboard your private launch. It’s surely the most evocative way to arrive, sailing along those famous canals to arrive at your very own Venetian island. Here, you’ll be treated to one of the world’s greatest hotels.

Its restaurant is Michelin starred, its Olympic-sized pool the only one in central Venice and Casanova wooed his lovers in its gardens. The spa treatments and balconied rooms are suitably extravagant.

Days 2 – 3

Food and wine tasting

Although you’ll have the hotel’s private launch on call to explore central Venice, we’ve included a private food and wine tour to get your bearings. A resident expert will bring you off the beaten track to the osterias favoured by the locals, pairing fine wines with the best in cicchetti cuisine. As the Venetian answer to tapas, you can expect small dishes of local specialities enjoyed standing up at the bar.

There’s also plenty of time to explore at your own pace, perhaps taking in Venice’s waterway maze with a gondola ride or losing yourself in its alleyways, discovering a fresh church icon at every turn.

Day 4

Sunset cruise and lagoon-side dinner

Today has been left at leisure, perhaps to enjoy the view and sun from the pool terrace. There’s also the chance to explore the artisan workshops and vineyards of the lesser-visited lagoon islands. Burano, a Venice in miniature, is a special highlight.

Whatever you choose, you’ll end in style with an included dinner and boat cruise. Setting out in a private water taxi, you’ll watch as the sun dips below the horizon before settling in to a bottle of wine and a three-course meal at a lagoon-side restaurant.

Depart for UK

After a final indulgent breakfast, your private water taxi will see you to the airport for your flight back to the UK. Again, a complimentary private chauffeur will be waiting to see you home.

About the itinerary

"One of the ultimate Venice experiences, though not in the heart of Venice's maze of Venice's tiny streets, the Belmond Cipriani's location offers the best of both worlds from its exclusive spot at the eastern end of the Giudecca island. Overlooking the lagoon towards St Mark's Square is a calm oasis where you can enjoy privacy and peace in vibrant Venice. The centre of Venice is easily reached in five minutes with the hotel's complimentary private launch"
