Captivating views of the Grand Canal, San Giorgio island, Santa Maria della Salute Basilica and Punta della Dogana demand attention from private stand-up balconies that run the length of the Somerset Maugham Royal Suite.
Perched centrally on the palazzo's first piano nobile, this magnificent 81-sqm suite combines fine Venetian artistry, original antiques and reminders of a famous former guest - the English novelist and playwright W. Somerset Maugham, who used to say: "At The Gritti you are not a guest, but a friend".
