When considering an overseas honeymoon (or even a destination wedding), the venue selection can be rather harrowing with an entire world to consider. As part of our #honeymoonhumpday series, we're going to be bringing you a variety of venue profiles, honeymoon styles and tips every Wednesday to help you narrow your options down to somewhere truly amazing.
Today's venue is Aman Venice - a 16th century Palazzo on Venice's Grand Canal home to Tiepolo frescoes, gilded ceilings and centuries-old leather wall coverings.
Arrive by boat, docking at a landing that takes you directly into the Reception Hall. You have your choice of rooms, whether it be one of the Palazzo Chambers or one of the lavish suites, we've chosen the Grand Canal Suite to showcase in the image to the left because of it's grand arched window and expansive views of the canal.
Each room harks back to a bygone era with period detailing and original architectural detail with striking 16th century fireplaces, frescoes and in one room, a bedroom ceiling by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo who has been described as the “greatest decorative painter of 18th-century Europe”.
The hotel features several lavish bars an dining rooms, a library, a ballroom, two grand sweeping gardens and the piano nobile, designed by Michelangelo Guggenheim.
The Aman Venice is the ultimate luxury destination, awaiting your arrival with bated breath and a glass of Prosecco.
