Venice by bike?

A new way to visit Italy's lagoon city!

"A realist, in Venice, would become a romantic by mere faithfulness to what he saw before him" - Arthur Symons.
Just as Venice has the power to make even the most traveled of travelers swoon, so too Belmond Hotel Cipriani, one of the lagoon city's most desirable, luxurious and iconic 5 stars, will have even the hardest of hearts melting within minutes of their walking through its doors. This said, there's more to Venice than romance. Don't believe us? Read on....

On your bike!

Ever thought of visiting Venice by bike? Probably best if you haven't, given that it's actually illegal to cycle in the lagoon city. Unless, that is, you decide to cycle - on water!
Ask Belmond Hotel Cipriani's concierge about renting a water bike and get ready to pedal your way through the heart of Venice - alongside the serenading gondoliers, water taxis and vaporettos!

Places to pedal to? Make your way to St Mark's Square or ride around the pretty little island of Giudecca

Not only is water biking fun, it's an excellent form of exercise too, meaning that you can combine a few hours sightseeing with a great work out!

Tick tock!

After an afternoon pedaling along the waterways of Venice, reward yourself (and that special someone) with a sunset aperitif.
And we're not talking about any old sunset aperitif either: stay at Belmond Hotel Cipriani and you can enjoy your twilight tipple at the top of the Clock Tower in St Mark's Square!

Normally closed to the public, the terrace at the top of Venice's 500 year old Torre del Orologio, provides a truly stunning venue for panoramic pre-dinner drinks

Be warned: at the stroke of the hour, "the Moors of Venice" (two giant bronze statues) will ring the large bell at the top of the tower!

Luxury on the lagoon

On the eastern tip of the island of Giudecca, Belmond Hotel Cipriani is famous for its luxurious accommodation, excellent cuisine, beautiful Venetian Gardens and for having the only Olympic sized swimming pool in Venice!
