lunge yourself back into the 16th century atmosphere. Nestled in the heart of Venice, the Lanterna di Marco Polo is a gorgeously decorated property in the San Marco district, within strolling distance of all the major city sites.

Blending Venetian tradition with modern comforts to make your stay unique, our hotel is a first class inn with a 3 star service in a beautifully restored palace.

Tucked down a silent little walkway, just off the main thoroughfare to the Piazza San Marco, the Lanterna di Marco Polo is a sweet surprise.

There is a lovely communal area with free Wi-fi access and, best of all, a delightful roof terrace with spectacular views across the rooftops of Venice, a rare thing in the city. The elegant rooms are traditionally decorated and well-equipped.

A rich breakfast is served in the lounge area in the morning, then you will be ready for your visit to the city: St. Mark’s Square is 2 minutes walk far, while Rialto Bridge is just around the corner. Riccardo and Guido’s insider tips will help you ‘live like a local’ by recommending the best restaurants and things to do in Venice and to arrange excursions and tickets.

A buffet breakfast is served on request each morning between 8:00 AM and 10:30 AM.
