Centurion Palace is located next to San Marco, on the other side of Canal Grande. It is less crowded but you are still very close to the action. All sites are within walking distance but hey, why walk when you can take a Gondola!
Within Milan´s already high culinary standard the Chateau Monfort is a one of a kind, culinary hideaway. The hotel is perfect starting point to explore the city, if you still feel like you need to go out...!
