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.
Embark on a culinary adventure with Countess Enrica Rocca, an earthy foodie. Enrica will introduce you to Venetian market produce, the best coffee shops and wine bars – and then teach you to cook local dishes at her home.
