Ideally located a few steps from St. Mark’s Square and the famous Palazzo dei Dogi in the very heart of Venice, Luna Hotel Baglioni provides its guests with a warm, intimate atmosphere and impeccable service. The hotel dates to the 12th century and was recorded as having given shelter to the Knights Templar in 1118.
In 1574 it was already known as Locanda della Luna, and during the 18th century the building was decorated with frescoes by pupils of Giambattista Tiepolo that now adorn the sumptuous Marco Polo Ballroom, where breakfast is served. A private landing stage allows guests to arrive straight to the hotel’s elegant entrance by gondola or water taxi.
