Opera in Venice with the Hotel Cipriani

February 19, 2007 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Hotel CiprianiIn the most romantic city on earth, the Hotel Cipriani offers the most luxurious accommodations in a secluded haven of elegance and calm. Located at the tip of Giudecca Island, the Cipriani is just a short, spectacular boat ride from St. Mark's Square. The 15th century buildings of the Palazzi, linked to the hotel through an ancient courtyard and flowered passageway, boast magnificent views overlooking the lagoon and Piazza San Marco. The gorgeous swimming pool, the only one of its kind in central Venice, likewise enjoys incredible views over the lagoon. The hotel's spa, named Casanova for the legendary lover who used to hold clandestine trysts in the gardens of the Hotel Cipriani, spills out onto private terraces with fountains.

In this magical setting, take advantage of a special three-day opera package which features a performance at the Fenice Theatre in Venice. The package is available starting with the premiere of Rachmaninov's Francesca di Rimini and Aleko on March 16, 2007. The Great La Fenice Opera Theatre Package includes three night's luxurious accommodation in a junior suite with full American breakfast, Italian Spumante and flowers in-room, two seats in a centrally located box at La Fenice (to be shared with another couple), one gourmet three-course dinner for two (either at the Cip's Club or in a Venetian restaurant near the Theatre La Fenice), and complimentary transportation to and from the airport. The package is priced at EUR 1,450 per night, from March 16-April 19, 2007, and October 21, 2007-January 6, 2008. (From April 20-October 20, 2007, the package is EUR 2,160 per night.)
