The Monaco and Grand Canal Hotel is in a great location, on the banks of Venice's Grand Canal where it enjoys majestic views of the Church of Santa Maria della Salute and the island of San Giorgio. From 1638 the building, originally belonging to the Dandolo family, hosted the first â€˜Ridotto Pubblico', a place to which nobility and people from all walks of life, (adventurers, courtesans, swindlers, and travelers) would retire for pleasure and intrigue. Giacomo Casanova considered this place the ideal backdrop for his conquests. The recent restoration has managed to revive, with a contemporary feel, the atmosphere of this historic building and the Hotel Monaco now has 100 rooms furnished in grand style.
