Experiences at Aman Venice

From its canal-side perch in San Polo, Aman Venice is a window into the city’s historic glories and modern-day cultural highs. Priceless art and iconic landmarks reveal themselves at every turn – most just a stroll or short gondola ride away, but for the most unique and memorable encounters, turn to Aman’s experts for insider access to the secrets of the city – from bespoke, chef-led tours of the Rialto market to private boxes for the opera at Le Fenice.

Gourmet market tours 

Sprawling over colonnaded squares beside the canal, the Rialto market has been the gastronomic heart of the city for almost 1,000 years. Join Aman’s chef on a morning market tour, and discover seasonal, Veneto-grown fruits and vegetables, and a vast selection of fresh-from-the-lagoon fish and seafood, before returning to Aman Venice to sample the morning’s finds in a traditional Venetian lunch. 

The hidden gardens of Venice 

In a city of water and stone, green spaces come as small revelations. Among the alleyways and canals, private gardens are tucked away like secrets; often, the only giveaway being a cascade of wisteria over a balustrade. Discover these hidden enclaves of natural beauty with a personal tour of Venice’s most alluring gardens, including that of Casanova’s childhood home, and explore a world of powder-pink roses, manicured hedgerows, vegetable gardens, beds of lavender, and loggias enwrapped by Virginia creeper. 

Exhibiting Wallace Chan 

Standing tall in Aman Venice from 13 May until the 31 October 2021, A Dialogue Between Materials and Time IV will showcase Wallace Chan’s contemplation on the relationship between materials, space and time – long the subject of the artist’s experimental impulses. Crafted from iron and titanium, the sculpture measures over two meters in height and weighs over 25-kilograms, in contrast to his previous works as one of the world’s most celebrated jewellery artists. 

Exclusive to guests of Aman Venice, the opportunity to discover Wallace Chan's full collection, curated by James Putnam, at Fondaco Marcello can be arranged by the hotel’s concierge where a personal tour of the exhibition will be led by one of the gallery’s associates for a unique insight.

Private Tours

Curated and led by the foremost experts in their fields, whether art historians, architects, chefs or engineers, Aman Venice’s privately guided excursions allow you to fully appreciate and absorb the magic of this remarkable ‘floating city’, without the crowds.
