    The LaGare Hotel Venezia hotel, MGallery Collection’s second address in Venice, boasts an exceptional location since it is the first hotel on the Island of Murano, which has been a renowned glassmaking centre for centuries.

    The views from the windows of the establishment’s 118 rooms attest to its exceptional location: magnificent stretches of water can be glimpsed beyond the Grand Canal, while many of the island’s famous gardens and flowers add to the gentle charm of the setting. Art and design
    The hotel is located in an old glass factory dating back to the 14th century. After undergoing complete refurbishment, the building now features a subtle blend of art and design. Elegant furnishings are enhanced by Venini glass lighting fixtures, while the common areas feature a permanent exhibition of museum works and objects designed by Murano’s famous glass artist. Everything in the hotel reflects the splendour of this island, which is a rare jewel in Italy’s splendid heritage. The former glass-works’ façade has been preserved and the hotel walls subtly evoke the city’s architecture. The library features a selection of books for those who seek to learn more about the island’s prestigious craft. Of course, it goes without saying that the hotel’s Memorable Moment consists of a private guided tour of one of the neighbouring glass factories.
