Oltre il Giardino hotel, Venice

Time Out says

This boutique hotel in a former mansion has a “secret” garden and a storied association with artists and musicians of the early 20th century.

Austrian-born socialite and widow of the famous composer Gustav Mahler, Alma Mahler was a muse to some of the early 20th-century’s most influential artists. Behind an unmarked door at the of a dead-end canalside street, her former home and idyllic garden are now a high-end boutique hotel, and form a quiet oasis in the middle of busy San Polo. The six bright, tranquil rooms are relatively unadorned, with a mix of modern and more traditional décor. All have views of the garden, where breakfast is served in good weather.

Time Out tip: Suites have separate bedrooms, and sleeping areas with sofa beds, making them a great option—and good value—for families.

Campo San Polo: For relaxing and people-watching on one of Venice’s largest squares
Basilica dei Frari: For Titian’s tomb and one of Venice’s major basilicas
Il Mercante: For craft cocktails among the beautiful people
