Carlton on the Grand Canal
A rooftop bar overlooking the Grand Canal and traditional Venetian-style rooms are two of the treasures awaiting you at this conventionally located 4 star hotel. Santa Lucia train station and bus stops for the airport shuttle are just five minutes’ walk away. Opposite Hotel Carlton On The Grand Canal are departure points for numerous vaporetto (waterbus) routes, making it an ideal location to base yourself for sightseeing.
The luxurious rooms are furnished in the Venetian style of the 1700s, even more traditional than The Orient Express (which didn’t commence until the 1800s). If you don’t know what a Murano glass lamp is, you will after staying here. While, if you’re expecting modern comforts, you won’t be disappointed as air conditioning, satellite TV, WiFi, a minibar and ensuite facilities are all included as standard.
La Cupola restaurant offers traditional cuisine, made with local ingredients from the Veneto region. Maybe you’ll be tempted to try some of the fresh fish or even guineafowl. After dinner head on to the panoramic terrace for cocktails and fantastic views over the city. If you arrive back mid-afternoon and have worked up an appetite from sightseeing, you can relax with an ice cream and coffee in the Carlton Cafe.
If you have a late flight home on your departure day, leave your luggage at the front desk and use your free time to explore the beautiful city. The staff here can assist you with restaurant reservations and theatre tickets. If you brought a mini guest along with you but want to visit the casino, then babysitting can also be arranged.
As the hotel is centrally located you can make an early start and beat the crowds for popular attractions like Doge's Palace and St Mark’s Basilica. And while there’s loads to see and do in the city, you are just a short train ride from the medieval city of Padua and Vicenza, with its elegant 16th century buildings designed by Andrea Palladio. While 45 minutes away is the spa town of Montegrotto Terme, on the edge of the luscious Euganean Hills regional park, allowing some much-needed rest & recuperation after a busy itinerary of sightseeing.
