Belmond Hotel Cirpirani


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. 60 years on, and our slice of paradise continue to enchant.
