THE GRITTI PALACE IS OPEN

The last 24 hours have just flown by and with great pride we announce that The Gritti Palace has officially reopened and looks forward to welcoming its first guest in the hours to come.

From its beginnings our palazzo has been home to a rich collection of artworks, a tradition that originated with the noble Pisani family, and that continued with its successive owners including the Gritti’s.

Art in its many forms is an important part of our restoration, from the precious Rubelli fabrics that decorate guestrooms and suites, to the exceptional glass chandeliers meticulously hand restored according to tradition by able glass.makers from nearby Murano, and from the beautiful terrazzo floors to the remarkable selection of artworks and antiques that adorn all private and social spaces within the hotel.

As we reopen we would like to share with you this short video that recounts the work of the local artisans that took part in our conservative restoration.
