Palladio Hotel Spa Resort
Set on Giudecca, overlooking Saint Mark’s, this sleek spa comes complete with hamman and views back across the water. You can even have a massage in the hotel’s glorious gardens, once part of a sixteenth-century convent.
This rooftop summer bar belongs to the Splendid Venice hotel, and is a cool spot beloved by Venetians. Sip a Bellini while listening to live music on Thursday or end up watching passing gondolas in the canalside lounge bar.
