Housed in the 16th-century Papadopoli Palazzo, Aman Venice is right on the canal yet it is surprisingly peaceful and discreet — so discreet, in fact, that you won’t find a sign out front and no dedicated check-in desk; rather, everything is done in-suite. The interior is jaw-droppingly beautiful, and it’s easy to spend time just savoring the details. The Alcova Tiepolo suite is the icing on the already well-decorated cake: The one-bedroom suite has original, gilded frescoes by 18th-century Venetian painter Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, marble fireplaces and historical architecture. Staying in this suite truly feels like you’re stepping back in time, only with exceptional service at your fingertips and modern amenities to suit every discerning traveler; it will be hard to pull yourself away.
