In one of the most evoca­tive cities in Italy con­served amid ar­chi­tec­ture and art is a pearl that is set in a unique ur­ban en­vi­ron­ment. Imag­ine a visit to Venice: a gon­dola ride on the Grand Canal, some pic­ture tak­ing in Pi­azza San Marco to up­load on so­cial net­works and, fi­nally, a walk on the Rialto Bridge. Af­ter hav­ing fully car­ried out these “du­ties” of a tourist and spend­ing pleas­ant hours walk­ing along the canals of the Serenis­sima, it is time to re­turn to the ho­tel for a well-earned rest, a re­fresh­ing meal or, why not, an aper­i­tif to end the day. It will be im­por­tant to fully re­cover one’s en­ergy needed to spend an­other day in one of the most fa­mous and ap­pre­ci­ated of Ital­ian cities. A jewel of a city that every year is vis­ited by hun­dreds of thou­sands of tourists and which has en­chanted world-renowned writ­ers like Tru­man Capote, Mar­cel Proust and Her­man Hesse. In this set­ting, on the banks of the Grand Canal stands a ho­tel that mir­rors the Vene­tian style. This is the Ca’ni­gra, a build­ing per­fectly sit­u­ated a few hun­dred me­ters from Pi­azza San Marco and the Gran Teatro La Fenice. The Ca’ni­gra La­goon Re­sort is a ho­tel that com­bines tra­di­tion, his­tory and moder­nity. As far back as the 1600s this build­ing shares a beau­ti­ful piece of his­tory with the city and has es­tab­lished it­self as one of the most ap­pre­ci­ated and renowned Vene­tian ho­tels. The four-star ho­tel takes its name from the am­bas­sador Costantino Ni­gra, a poet and diplo­mat of the late nine­teenth cen­tury who used to stay in the rooms of the re­sort. In ad­di­tion to the lux­u­ri­ous rooms, the Ca’ni­gra of­fers guests a Byzan­tine-gothic gar­den, that per­fectly com­bines rose bushes and fruit trees, over­look­ing the Grand Canal. The two gar­dens (pro­tected by the Belle Arti as­so­ci­a­tion) are open not only for ho­tel guests, but also for ban­quets and re­cep­tions, and even just for an aper­i­tif, over­look­ing the most fa­mous and ro­man­tic canal of the Serenis­sima. The suites of the ho­tel, dec­o­rated with orig­i­nal fur­nish­ings of the 1700s, fres­coes and mo­saics, wel­come and fully im­merse the guest in the Vene­tian style. Each room at Ca’ni­gra La­goon Re­sort is a per­fect fu­sion of clas­sic and con­tem­po­rary, el­e­gance and style, just like Venice.
