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.
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.
