A box at the opera

The house of Verdi and Rossini, of Prokofiev and Britten, the Teatro La Fenice has been a preeminent international opera venue since its foundation in 1792. Aman Venice guests have access to a private box, allowing a privileged view of the iconic stage. The experience includes boat transfers, aperitivi and, afterwards, dinner at Aman Venice.

Learn to row the Venetian Way

Aman Venice has partnered with Row Venice, a team dedicated to preserving the traditional Venetian style of gondola rowing known as "voga alla veneta", offering guests the opportunity to try their hand at this iconic skill. Following a transfer to the Row Venice meeting point, guests can enjoy a private lesson with a professional instructor. 

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. 

Cook the Lagoon: Edipo Re Edition 

There is no better time to experience Venice’s fabled waterways than in the summer months. To experience the season in all its glory, Aman Venice takes its Cook the Lagoon concept to the water, providing guests with a matchless culinary experience aboard the famed, historic sailing boat, Edipo Re.
