Venice’s history as a hub of global trade has bequeathed the city one of the most diverse and multifaceted culinary cultures in Italy.

Gondolas gather outside the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute in preparation for a race across the lagoon and along the Grande Canal.

“Venice, its temples and palaces did seem like fabrics of enchantment piled to heaven.” – Percy Bysshe Shelley. #Aman Venice, set in a 16th-century palazzo on the Grand Canal, is home to museum-quality treasures including Tiepolo frescoes, gilded ceilings and centuries-old leather wall coverings. With period pieces and original architectural details, each suite at Aman Venice is a unique space redolent of the palazzo’s romantic heritage @alifewortheating #AmanDesign #AmanResorts #Venice
'To build a city where it is impossible to build a city is madness in itself, but to build there one of the most elegant and grandest of cities is the madness of genius' - Alexander Herzen. Set in the regal Palazzo Papadopoli on the Grand Canal in the heart of the city, Aman Venice is as sumptuous and romantic as the city itself. At its most compelling during the winter months, when ethereal mist blankets the winding canals, Venice is synonymous with art and romance and moments of beauty are everywhere @davidbiedert #Aman30
