Set in a grand 18th-century building, the Giorgione is an elegant gem of a hotel—staying here really is like taking a trip back to old Venice. The combination of old and new works well: Rooms are a little worn, but that adds to the historic ambience, with antique furniture and Venetian decor, fabrics, Murano glass chandeliers, and also satellite TV. In the summer, a generous breakfast is served in the pretty fountain courtyard.
