Mysterious individuals under masks, gorgeous historic buildings from centuries ago, and art! Oh, Venice, you really are one of Italy’s most beautiful pearls!
If you’re planning a trip there and you want to find a gorgeous boutique hotel in Venice that will make you feel as if you’ve traveled back in time, then follow me! I looked around for hours and found the best hotels, which I then ordered from most to least expensive.
Of course, I didn’t stop there (we’re in Venice, after all). So I made 2 bonus sections, one with the best unique hotels in town and the other with the top modern hotels in the city.
I know there’s lots to discover today, and before we get all excited and start checking all the hotels. I wanted to advise everyone to book their hotel in advance! I don’t have to tell you how popular Venice is and that the prices will only increase the closer you get to your traveling date!
