Staying in heaven? Almost, if you have stayed in Danieli. Not without reason it is part of the Luxury Collection, the select club of chicest hotels in the world. Beautifully located (on the Canale Grande), great service and views over the lagoon. Facilities such as a beach, swimming pool you will find at the Lido, where you are taken for free by a water taxi. There are a lot of Americans here who seemingly are not ashamed of their behaviour. It is a bit expensive, but it is worth it! We stayed here in the summer of 2001. .
