San Clemente Palace Kempinski, private and exclusive, is one of the most authentic jewels of the hotels in all Italy. A short and romantic boat ride away from Piazza San Marco, this luxurious resort is the embodiment of the concept ‘made in Italy’. A portal to the past of Venice, San Clemente was established for the first time in 1131, when the venetian tradesman Pietro Gattilesso financed the construction of a church and hospice for pilgrims and soldiers on their way to the Holy Land. The church fell into disuse until 1432, when the Pope Eugenio IV moved here the orden of the Lateran canons and the rich families of Venice donated millions to its restoration.
Now a one-of-a-kind luxury hotel, it is managed by the prestigous Kempinski Group. Kempinski is the oldest luxury hotel group in Europe, with a history of more than 120 years. Its prestigious European heritage puts the hotel group in a unique position to go further, to give life to history and immerse travelers in the true essence of the destinations where they are.
