Gloria Beggiato is the passionate owner and manager of the iconic hotel overlooking the Grand Canal.
None can express better than her the identity of the Metropole:
“Over the years, I tried to give this home a soul and a strong personality, eclectic and intense. Metropole is a place where you can experience an emotional journey. Whatever you live here, staying or dining, always remember we made it with passion and love. After all, here, nothing happens by chance.”
The Metropole Hotel has been run by the Beggiato family, Venetian hoteliers for generations. Today, Gloria continues the tradition, but has introduced to the Metropole a hint of mistery and Oriental elegance, enhancing its unconventional identity.
Venice, like the Metropole, is a captivating place which strikes the eye and moves the heart. The Metropole embodies most of the Venetian fascination: eccentric, warm, eclectic, each particular tells a story.
The Oriental Bar reveals the strict connection of the city with the Eastern world; you can feel the influence of the Middle East, of the Ottoman Empire and the Balkans. The bar is an enchanted corner permeated with oriental spirit and the fragrance of spices.
The Citrus Garden represents the Mediterranean influence on the city with scented jasmine, palms, and orange trees. Verdant and luxuriant, a place to linger to eat breakfast outdoor in peace surrounded by white gazebos.
It’s not a rare finding in Venice, a place that tells you marvellous tales, but this building is worthy of Shahrazād and “One thousand and one nights”.
You can find the palace on a legendary map dated 1500. Antonio Vivaldi gave music lessons and from 1703 to 1740 composed his masterpieces: the Estro Armonico op.III, the Concertos, and the Four Seasons. In 1880, a further major restoration transformed the building into a hotel known as the “Casa Kirsch”.

Object coming from the past to re-evoke a timeless romanticism, miniature treasure passed down through epochs.
