A little over a century ago, the era of steamships and trains let explorers travel with ease for the first time. One popular destination was Venice, at the heart of the Mediterranean and a crossroads between East and West.
The unique appeal of Venice is why, in 1906, the Compagnia Italiana Grandi Alberghi (CIGA) was founded as a hotel brand accommodating travelers to this storied destination. We trace our heritage back to CIGA, which became The Luxury Collection brand in 1994.
For the global explorer, The Luxury Collection offers a gateway to the world’s most exciting and desirable destinations. We are proud to carry on the traditions that shaped our heritage as we embark on journeys as transformative as they are unforgettable.
