Once an orphanage church in which Antonio Vivaldi gave music lessons, the Metropole was converted into a hotel at the end of the nineteenth century. It was known in Freud's day as the Casa Kirsch, and as the Metropoli was briefly enlisted as a military hospital during World War II. For the last thirty years, the Beggiato family has owned and operated the Metropole, and much of their staff remains to this day. The family's own collections of art and antiques adorn the rooms and common spaces. The Beggiatos are still active in the management of the hotel, lending to a level of intimacy unusual in a 70-room hotel.

There is no mistaking that this is Venice - the hotel has a private water taxi entrance, and overlooks the Bacino di San Marco, the lagoon in front of St. Mark's Square. To call the style of the hotel "baroque" would be to understate the level of ornate detail at work, with intricate trompe l'oeil paintings, period furniture, and fine fabrics decorating the rooms. The family's collections are on display: antique mirrors, porcelain teapots, fans, corkscrews, and "one of the most important" collections of crucifixes in all of Italy.

Bread, fruit, and cheese are served in a breakfast room next to the garden, which itself serves as an outdoor setting for lunch and dinner in the warmer months. The Met restaurant, featuring the Beggiato family's collection of antique musical instruments, is the choice during fall and winter. Tea is served daily in the Venetian lounge, and the Bar Zodiaco is open from 10:30 am until midnight.

Fine service and an atmosphere absolutely permeated with Venetian history are the strengths of the Metropole. This is in every way the antidote to the corporate hotel, with its antiseptic blend of faceless modern design and watered-down "local" flavor. Here you'll stay among Venetians, in a hotel which is unmistakably Venice through and through.
