CENTURION PALACE - luxury
hotel Venice luxury hotel in
Modern and contemporary are
two concepts that fit Venice
like a glove as this is a city
which has undergone endless
changes down the centuries.
And it is in Venice, next to
the Basilica of Santa Maria
della Salute, and between the
Punta della Dogana and the Peggy
Guggenheim Museum, looking directly
onto the Grand Canal, St. Mark’s
Square and the Giudecca that
we find the Centurion Palace.
Overlooking St. Mark's Basin at the mouth of the Grand Canal, Centurion Palace is housed in the former convent of Palazzo Genovese. Rooms and suites have a contrasting modern influence and there is a private garden, butler service and a gourmet restaurant.
Expect peace and tranquillity in this relatively quiet area of Dorsoduro, virtually next door to the famous landmark, Santa Maria della Salute. Each room and suite is individually decorated in contemporary style, many of which have dreamy, mystical city views. This provides a great base for exploring the city.
Walk to the lively Campo Santa Margherita with its numerous cafes and afterwards visit the Peggy Guggenheim Museum. Return for early evening cocktails in the garden or at the corner bar by the canal before dining in the hotel restaurant on haute Mediterranean and creative cuisine.
Centurion Palace is a Small Luxury Hotels of the World property.
The name Centurion refers to
the ancient Roman coin depicting
Antinous, who was famous for
his friendship with the Emperor
Hadrian, which was discovered
when the building was being
restored. The Centurion Palace,
which is on the area of the
Monastery of San Gregorio, has
kept its splendid Venetian-Gothic
facade, but just step inside
and you find yourself in a magical
ambience which blends luxury
with the latest fashion trends.
