Guests of the Londra Palace have the unique chance to reserve our traditional Venetian wooden roof terrace or altana for exclusive private use. It is one of the highest such ‘turrets’ in the city, with 360° views. We provide a wicker picnic hamper full of good things for you to enjoy a magical lunch, dinner or aperitivo.
One of Italy’s great wetland ecosystems, the Venetian lagoon is a place of wide open vistas, fascinating flora and fauna and secret islands. Explore it in a traditional bragosso fishing boat, with a local guide, on this half-day or full-day cruise. April - September.
Venice is still a city of craftspeople – but it takes local knowhow to reach those authentic practitioners who work outside the tourist circuit. Watch a battiloro (traditional goldbeater) at work, visit one of Murano’s most prestigious glassworks, see how mosaic tiles are made in a furnace that dates back to the 19th century – these are just some of the absorbing artisanal activities we can arrange.
There’s a world of difference between a happy kid being given a mask and an ecstatic kid taking home a mask she or he made themselves, guided by the expert craftspeople of a true Venetian carnival atelier. Mum and dad are welcome to join in too!
These are just a few of the experiences our well-connected concierges can arrange exclusively for guests of the Londra Palace. For bookings or further enquiries, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
