City Life

A range of treatments is available at Il Palazzo Fitness & Wellness Centre at Bauer Il Palazzo, while a complimentary private shuttle motorboat escorts guests to the wonderful Bauer Palladio Spa, attached to sister hotel, Bauer Palladio on Giudecca Island (open from mid-March to mid-November).
