"Restaurant Terrazza Danieli" - Perched on the hotel’s rooftop, the Restaurant Terrazza Danieli is a magical location from which to start and end the day. The menu celebrates the seasons and the city’s historic role as a crossroads between East and West, with locally-sourced ingredients complemented by a fine selection of wines from the territory and the finest champagne. Large windows and a panoramic terrace offer diners an enviable view of the Serenissima.
"Bar Terrazza Danieli"- With its unparalleled panoramas of Venice, Bar Terrazza Danieli is a glorious setting for enjoying a Bellini cocktail, a light snack, or a gelato from May until September. "Bar Dandolo" - Located in the majestic lobby of the 14th Century, Bar Dandolo is Venice’s most sophisticated spot for whiling away the day. Whether stopping by for a morning espresso, a pre-dinner aperitif, or a nightcap before retiring, Bar Dandolo’s alluring atmosphere charms locals and visitors alike. "Danieli Bistro"- A convivial bistro facing on to the Venetian lagoon, the Danieli Bistro is an informal gathering place that balances Italian tradition and international influences, fine Mediterranean and innovative ingredients.
Local Attractions - Known as an open-air museum, Venice offers an infinite array of interests, culture, and opportunities for relaxation—from inviting beaches to rare artwork and exclusive shopping, all set against the romantic backdrop of the lagoon. All six of the city’s neighborhoods, Sestieri, are easily explored by foot or Vaporetto (waterbus). Hotel Danieli guests enjoy particularly easy access to the San Zaccaria Vaporetto stop. Also, mere steps away, St. Mark's Square beckons with its many attractions, including the Palazzo Ducale, St. Mark's Basilica and its Byzantine Mosaics, St. Mark's Bell Tower and its views of Venice, and the romantic Bridge of Sighs. The nearby Piombi prison, where Casanova was imprisoned in 1755, is a delight for history lovers.
A visit would not be complete without a Vaporetto tour along the beautiful Grand Canal. Stop along the way to explore local haunts like the bustling fruit, vegetable, and fish markets at Rialto. These Peschiera and Erberia are sources of the freshest produce and seafood for Venice’s best restaurants and locals alike. For the culinary-minded, the Bacari (wine bars) serve regional wines alongside the famous Chicheti or small appetizers - a delightful way to start any evening. Every July, La Festa del Redentore takes place in front of the hotel on St. Mark’s Basin's waters, culminating in a magnificent firework display at midnight. Enjoy the unparalleled view of the festivities from the rooftop Restaurant Terrazza Danieli. Directly outside the hotel, water taxis await to whisk visitors on trips to the major lagoon islands - explore Lido for its beaches, Burano for its lacework, Murano for its handcrafted glass Torcello for its unpopulated charm. Or leave the city entirely, for a tour of the splendid Venetian Villas on the Brenta Riviera, many designed by the renowned architect Palladio.
