A Candlelight Tour of Venice With Baglioni Hotel Luna

(Baglioni Hotel Luna)

Planing a romantic getaway to Venice? Here’s a unique way to uncover the secrets of the Floating City. Baglioni Hotel Luna—housed in a centuries-old aristocrat’s palazzo overlooking San Giorgio Island and the San Marco Basin—has unveiled a new insider’s tour by candlelight. The idea is a throwback to the days of the ancient republic when Codegas, or lantern-bearers, would guide people through Venice’s labyrinthine alleyways at night. Guests may take a Codega tour by lantern through St. Mark’s calli, learning about Venice’s secrets along the way, before returning to the Baglioni Hotel Luna for a three-course feast at Canova Restaurant, winner of the Fogher d’Oro and Gambero Rosso awards. 

The package also includes two nights’ accommodation in the Giorgione Terrace Suite, which comes with a host of amenities like unpacking/packing service, complimentary mini-bar, Ortigia bath products and Etro robes. The two-level suite is equipped with an outdoor terrace for soaking up the views of the Lagoon of Venice. Welcome gifts are placed in-suite on arrival, and a private butler attends to guest during their stay. Keen to explore the Venice canals? A complimentary one-way transfer with private water taxi is also included. Price tag? Just over $12,000.
