The phoenix is the symbol of our hotel. The legend tells of a mythical bird from Arabia. It died every 500 years to then rise up again from its own ashes. A rare creature, almost impossible to find.
Like a phoenix, our hotel is immersed in legend, history and reality.
The legend of the phoenix still lives on today in the operas, symphonies and beauty of the magnificent
La Fenice Theatre, just 30 metres from our hotel.
Founded in 1792, the La Fenice Theatre is one of the most famous theatres in the world.
Its fine decorations and precious ornaments leave you breathless.
The enchanting notes, songs and rehearsals of operas and symphonies can often be heard from our hotel.
What is more, many of the artists performing there - today as yesterday - have become our regular guests,
including Maria Callas and Riccardo Muti.
Not only the theatre… a second and equally famous phoenix reoccurs throughout our history - the Taverna La Fenice.
The ancient Taverna La Fenice is in fact located on the ground floor of the right wing of the hotel. The elegant tavern, a restaurant until 1860, was named by the famous Gabriele D’Annunzio.
Its customers include famous names such as: Toscanini, Strauss, Moravia and Girandot.
It is striking above all for its fascination - an 18th century building, beautiful wrought iron flower boxes, velvet cladding and the authenticity of a historic inn, almost unchanged over time.
