le cose da non perdere a Venezia


Personalised Soutache courses

Take a course in soutache, the ancient art of trimming all kinds of materials, from wood to murano glass beads, with colourful yarns and fabrics

Hotel Bel Sito in Venice offers the opportunity to take a course in Soutache, the art of trimming with coloured yarns to create limitless objects in a thousand colours.

The technique uses a wide range of materials including shells, wood, mother-of-pearl and gemstones, but above all, beads made by the master glassmakers of Murano.

Curves and patterns create necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets and chokers.

You'll learn how to make Soutache jewellery, which you can keep at the end of the 2-hour session.
You'll need a certain dexterity in the use of needle and thread, needed to sew the beads onto the fabrics.

If you're interested, ask our concierge for information.

Polite staff, and always smiling

Central location, polite and smiling staff, reasonable rates, utterly unequalled old-style building, the Baroque church outside the window brings Venice right into the room. Bear in mind that you're not just a paying customer, but a guest - there's a big difference.

Professional staff

The professional staff, the kind and friendly attitude of everyone, and the strategic position of the hotel, minutes from St Mark's; the nearby vaporetto stop and the possibility of getting into a gondola very close to the hotel. Breakfast is delicious and varied. The building faces a magnificent Baroque church.

A hotel that cares about service

The hotel overlooks the lovely Campo de Santa Maria del Giglio, in a central location close to the historic city centre. A hotel that cares about service. A particularly elegant classic atmosphere, especially the rooms and the breakfast room.

3 stars, magnificent location

I came across this magnificently located 3-star hotel between Campo San Stefano and St Mark's. The hotel is beautifully kept and comfortable, furnished in classic Venetian style. The staff, both reception and front of house, are extremely friendly and polite, always ready to meet the needs of guests. Years ago I ran a consortium of 43 hotels, and I can state that his hotel would definitely be at the top of its class.
