Walking directions to Hotel Metropole (with map)
Metropole isn't quite as well-known to outsiders as the Hotel Danieli (which
is just down the Riva degli Schiavoni from the Metropole, toward St. Mark's
Square), but it has a following among well-heeled Venetophiles--and especially
among guests who appreciate the Metropole's illustrious history, its
museum-grade collection of objets-d'art, and the Michelin two-star Met
