Aman Venice - Celebrations & Events Aman Venice - Celebrations and Events


The city of Venice is synonymous with romance and weddings at Aman Venice exude this infamous charm. Arriving at Aman Venice by water guests are invited to step into the palazzo’s regal entrance hall, before ascending its sweep of steps to enter the dramatic, light-filled reception rooms. Vows can be exchanged in the Canal Garden or in the ballroom overlooking the Grand Canal before celebrations commence with a candle-lit banquet to the strains of live opera or a string quartet. For multi-day events, two classic boats offer easy group access to the city’s art galleries, Saint Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace, or a day exploring the Venetian lagoon. 



In Italy, it is well-known that events with family and friends are commonly centred around the dining table. At Aman Venice, there is no better way to celebrate, with a number of private dining settings, such as the Palazzo Kitchen Table, for the most indulgent of occasions. Seating just 10 diners, this light-filled space can be booked exclusively, where the appropriately named Cook the Lagoon menu offers guests the opportunity to witness and participate in each chef’s culinary interpretation of local ingredients harvested from the Venetian lagoon and its islands. Special events can also be held in restaurant Arva’s dining rooms, with seasonal menus personalised by Executive Chef Dario Ossola and renowned Michelin-starred Chef Norbert Niederkolfer.
