The images below are taken from a bedroom window of Palazzo Vendramin
Palazzo Vendramin is a 15th-century residence linked to the Hotel Cipriani through an ancient courtyard and a passageway lined with flowers. It houses 16 suites and rooms with sweeping vistas over the gardens and across to St Mark’s Square.
These views have been represented in paint and photographs a billion times – they are common to generations of travelers and the walls in galleries around the world groan from the weight of their presence.
Piazza San Marco (in English = St Mark’s Square) is the main public square of Venice, where it is locally simply known as “the Piazza” and is the key part of the social, religious and political center of Venice
The Hotel Cipriani has just under 80 suites and rooms, having magnificent views over the open lagoon and the gardens.
