Filled with museum-quality treasures, Aman Venice hotel on the Grand Canal is the 16th-century Palazzo Papadopoli, one of the city’s most significant buildings. The great 18th-century painter Tiepolo once lived here, and his frescoes adorn the walls of many of the rooms. In the 19th century, the presiding Papadopoli family turned adjoining buildings into two gardens that, today, are among the city’s rarest private green spaces. When Aman Venice was renovated in 2013, its sensitive incorporation of contemporary comforts won the palazzo a heritage award for Italy’s best restoration.
