Once a flourishing flourmill, Hilton Molino Stucky Venice has been beautifully restored and offers one of the best hotel views in Europe, of one of the world’s most beautiful cities.

Situated on Giudecca Island, its history begun well over a hundred years ago when the Venetian entrepreneur Giovanni Stucky developed a flourmill on the site, soon after adding a pasta factory. At its peak the mill operated 24 hours a day, employing up to 1,500 people and producing more than 50 tonnes of flour a day.

Today, however, the site is home to one of the finest and most unique hotels in Venice. Hilton Molino Stucky counts 379 rooms and suites, with a modern design inspired by the history of the Hotel, a selection of restaurants & bars, the first eforea spa in Italy, the highest rooftop pool in the city and an unrivalled view of Venice.

A short boat ride from the doorstep of the hotel takes you right to the heart of Venice, San Marco Piazza. Be sure to follow @hiltonvenice
