About Hotel Excelsior On the Beach in Venice

The majestic city of Venice hardly needs any introduction, the dizzyingly labyrinthine streets hide enough gems to justify a lifetime's exploration, and the mild climate and rich heritage at the crossroads of Mediterranean and Asian culture make this the perfect city break, especially this year during the 58th Art Exibition, with our dedicated Art pacakge.

The five-star Hotel Excelsior is a beautiful base from which to explore this magnificent city, boasting both proximity to the centre of town and seclusion and calm on the golden sands of the Venice Lido. It dates back to 1908, when it transformed the lido from a long sandbank on the fringes of the town into a grand, luxurious resort and a hub in its own right. The architecture of Hotel Excelsior however, harks back to a much more distant history, its design echoing the Iberian Moresque style of the city's heyday.

Whilst the hotel boasts three restaurants, three bars and a large swimming pool and fitness centre, the true highlight, however, is its location on the Lido – a strip of golden sand, looking out over the Adriatic Sea. The hotel's private beach boasts some beautiful huts and a degree of seclusion and privacy unimaginable elsewhere in Venice.
