Why Stay At Hotel Excelsior

The Hotel Excelsior on the Venetian island of Lido has been a favorite of celebrities for over 100 years.

The Scoop

The 178-room Hotel Excelsior, on the Venetian island of Lido, first opened in 1908, and has remained one of Italy's top-notch luxury hotels for more than a century. Inside, Moroccan design touches—such as a courtyard fountain, arched entryways, and ornate, jewel-toned furnishings—help to create an exotic feel, and glimpses of the Venetian Lagoon and the Adriatic Sea catch your eye anywhere you look. The waterfront hotel is just a 15-minute water-taxi ride from Venice proper; to get you there, the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service from its private pier. Return for an alfresco dinner at the hotel's candlelit La Terrazza, one of Venice's iconic dining spots.

Insider Tips

May to September is the busy season; for a prime swath of sand, rent a beachfront cabana.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Venice Marco Polo International Airport (VCE) which is approximately 10 miles from the hotel.

Lungomare Guglielmo Marconi, 41, Venice, Venice, Italy
