Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Set in a prime position on the Grand Canal, Locanda Vivaldi is an intimate hotel with excellent views and classic decor. The hotel is named after Antonio Vivaldi, the renowned composer who taught the violin two doors away (now the Hotel Metropole). The Basilica, the Doges Palace and St. Mark’s Square are all only a five-minute walk away, and the hotel has its own mooring for water taxi pickups.

Location aside, the property's main draw is its vast panoramic terrace that overlooks the Grand Canal and has views from the Lido all the way to the column in St. Mark’s Square. It's open in the evening exclusively for hotel guests (April-October) and has a covered section so that you can still dine outside, even if the weather turns colder.

In the mornings, a rich Venetian breakfast buffet can be delivered to rooms or taken in the peach-colored breakfast room, dressed with glass chandeliers and tablecloths on the pretty round tables. There's also a snug underground bar, with cozy sofas and beamed ceilings, set off the leafy courtyard.

The interiors are dramatic -- patterned wallpaper, antique furniture and a baroque color scheme -- and the corridors are hung with theatrical posters and Venetian carnival masks. Superior rooms have some of the best views over the St Mark basin.
