Unfold the evolution of Venetian cicchetti

Chase Guttman Hotel Danieli Gondola

Our Concept

Visiting Venice means not to miss out on the Venetian tradition of cicchetti. The word "cicchetto" stems from the spoken Latin language in which "ciccus" means "very small" and roots are found as well in the French word "chiquet", dervied from "chiqueter" meaning "to cut in small pieces". Thus, chiccheti are exquisite local bite-size appetizers which are unique to Venice and usually combined with a glass of wine, which is up to now known as "ombra", meaning shadow in Italian, as it was under the shadow of St. Mark's bell tower that demijohns were stored to keep the wine cool.

About us

With its heritage setting on Riva degli Schiavoni, Hotel Danieli dominates the Venetian lagoon with spectacular views of the Grand Canal and islands. Also overlooking the Palazzo Ducale, the hotel is just steps away from Ponte Dei Sospiri and Piazza San Marco. The three palaces which comprise the hotel date from the 14th, 17th and 19th Centuries: Palazzo Dandolo in Venetian Gothic style, once home to the noble Dandolo family; Palazzo Casa Nuova, previously the city’s treasury; and Palazzo Danieli Excelsior, featuring guestrooms with balconies overlooking the lagoon on its upper floors. The three palaces house a rich collection of precious art and antiques that play witness to the city’s history, blended with contemporary comforts to meet the needs of cultured global travelers.
