The romantic city of Venice, a masterpiece of beauty and historic architecture located in the Veneto region of Italy, was originally built on 100 small islands in the Adriatic Sea and relies on a series of waterways and canals. One of the most famous of these is the world-renowned Grand Canal and our conference venue, the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal will not disappoint with its stunning views over this famous waterway and only a few steps away from St Mark’s Square, its Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. The perfect location to immerse yourself in the elegant Venetian lifestyle.
