|Description||The Villa Igea, built in 1875, is a first class hotel located 55 minutes from Marco Polo International Airport or just 30 minutes by water taxi in Venice. Situated in, what is surely one of Venice's loveliest squares, Campo San Zaccaria, the hotel has thirty rooms decorated in charming Venetian style, half of which look onto the sunny Campo and the imposing facade of San Zaccaria Church, considered a Renaissance masterpiece. The Villa's sister hotel, Savoia and Jolanda, just steps away is a bit larger and guests of the Villa Igea can avail themselves of its services.|
For history lovers, the relics of eight early Doges lie in the waterlogged crypt under the Chapel of San Tarasio. Legend has it that Casanova spent many a night frolicking in the adjoining Benedictine Abbey (now police headquarters) in the willing company of its then libertine nuns. Surrounded by so much history and charm, your stay in Venice will no doubt be a pleasant one, ensured by the hotel's attentive staff. The Villa Igea offers on site dining, shopping and entertainment venues in Venice.
An important, radical renovation of the entire complex was scheduled for completion in late fall of 2002.
