Exquisite antiques and local artifacts whisk you back in time, while Michelin-starred gastronomy, charming staff and the only Olympic-sized swimming pool in the city offer modern sophistication. The special air of romance is what sets us apart from the rest.

Our story began in 1956, when Giuseppe Cipriani decided to build a hotel for jet-setting travellers. His dream was to create a haven close to St Mark’s Square, yet away from the city bustle.

Just two years after the project began, glamorous guests were arriving in droves. Affluent Americans, French nobles, English aristocrats, European royalty, actors and artists from across the globe were drawn to the relaxing, private atmosphere and gorgeous rooms. More than 60 years on, and our slice of paradise continues to enchant.

Our historic guest book is a treasured item. Its yellowed pages are covered with drawings, dedications and words of thanks from stars such as Burt Reynolds, Candice Bergen, Gérard Depardieu and Cary Grant.

But it is the first entry, written in 1958 in a flourish of blue ink, that says it all. Iconic French actress Martine Carol’s message to Giuseppe Cipriani simply states: “I’ve travelled three times around the world, but this is where I want to stay.”

Simple yet delicious, the peach purée and Prosecco cocktail that has become synonymous with Cipriani was invented by Giuseppe Cipriani at Harry’s Bar in 1948. Giuseppe, a barman at the time, had lent 10,000 lire to a struggling American student named Harry Pickering. When a much wealthier Harry returned, he presented his friend with four times the sum and suggested he set up his own bar.

Harry’s Bar opened in 1931, and swiftly became frequented by writers such as Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote and Somerset Maugham. Giuseppe conjured up the Bellini when the sun was setting: the pinky golden hues inspired his world-famous cocktail. To this day, we prepare our Bellinis according to Mr Cipriani’s original recipe.

At Cipriani, you can expect to meet Roberto Senigaglia, often the face you see on arrival at the hotel’s jetty. He has welcomed many stars during his 25 years at the hotel. He describes his “office” as “the best in the world.”

Or be regaled with stories by our private butlers. They’ve enjoyed amazing encounters over the years – like when Paul McCartney signed their guitars, or when Princess Diana sat on the bottom of a carpeted staircase and said: “home at last!”

Sit back for a drink at our iconic Bar Gabbiano, then embark on a guided visit of the installation. These tours are available everyday at 3pm, upon reservation.

‘Cooking the World’ was conceived as a propitious place for meetings, discussions and debates. Gathering around a table reflects a sense of family bonding and intimacy in sharing, a notion celebrated by the Cipriani.

In Cipriani’s gardens on Giudecca Island, where 18th century city dwellers would come to enjoy fresh air and Giacomo Casanova once wooed his lovers, join us in championing the notions of sharing and imparting cultural values. In this hidden away yet naturally beautiful meeting place, gather to celebrate contemporary and ancient customs alike.

One of the world’s most renowned Indian artists, Subodh Gupta was born in 1964 in Khagaul, Bihar. He studied at the College of Art, Patna before moving to New Delhi, where he continues to live and work. He uses a rich variety of media to produce large sculptures, paintings, installations, photography, video and performance.

He is especially known to work with ubiquitous objects such as mass-produced steel utensils, found across household kitchens throughout India. The ordinary items, often used and well worn, are fashioned into sculptures that reflect the social and economic transformation of his homeland.

Considered one of the driving forces on the contemporary art scene, Galleria Continua creates a bridge between past and present with works from some of the world’s biggest and most exciting artists today.

Evoking a feeling of inclusivity and community, MITICO embodies a new art philosophy: it is the reinterpretation of universal customs shared amongst different societies, such as cooking, painting, observing,and appreciating, and how these are consumed in their environments. MITICO is a moment in time and history where cultures interact.
