A Look at Ca' Nigra Lagoon Resort


By: Five Star Alliance

The Ca’ Nigra Lagoon Resort is an authentic expression of styles of the Venetian Settecento and modern design,
blending in perfect taste with the influences of fine oriental antiques. Today, after masterly preservative restoration
works that have brought up the value of its splendour, mosaics, original venetian floors of the Seicento, marble friezes
and precious glass panes are rediscovered harmonizing elegantly with modern solutions.

Did You Know? Ca' Sagredo Hotel


By: Five Star Alliance

Ca' Sagredo Hotel was a palace originally owned by the Morosini family. It was purchased at the start of the 18th century by the Sagredos, a noble family who had lived in the Santa Sofia district for centuries. The facade onto the Grand Canal is proof of the Byzantine origin of the building, which was altered several times in subsequent centuries. The original ground floor with the doors leading onto the water and the first floor with its tall arch windows topped on slim pillars, were completed in the 15th century by the addition of second floor, which has tracery frieze around the middle mullioned windows of the Portego or central hall.

Did You Know? Hilton Molino Stucky Venice


By: Five Star Alliance

Hilton Molino Stucky Venice


Did you know Hilton Molino Stucky Venice started life as a flour mill owned by Giovanni Stucky? Dating back to 1895, 1500 people worked at the mill, producing 50 tons of flour each day. Trading wheat, flour and pasta internationally, Giovanni became the richest man in Venice. Sadly, his reign ended in 1910 when he was murdered by a former employee. From 1955, the mill was left derelict before its grand opening as a luxury hotel in 2007 with many of the building's original features still on show.
