One of the most beautiful things to do in your life is to enter Venice for the first time on the Grand Canal. Not only are you transported back centuries, everyone is intrigued by the ornate palaces that line both sides of the Grand Canal. What is your day like when your living room windows look out onto the Grand Canal? Or imagining sitting on a rooftop terrace with vistas of Venice's rooftops and noted landmarks at your feet. Through a noble Venetian family, you can now experience it firsthand with a large group of family or friends by renting the four luxury apartments the owners lovingly restored for their guests.
The Marchesa arrived at the Palazzo 55 years ago when she married the Marchese and still lives here today with her family. She has wonderful stores to tell you about what must be the best views in all of Venice.
Ideally located on the Grand Canal, you are just a few minutes walk to the Piazza San Marco, yet with a feeling far from the bustle of the city center. It's the perfect location for a late night drink on the famed Piazza - after the day trippers and cruise ships depart is the only time you get to see the real Venice. And you will come to realize why it was named, La Serenissima a Byzantine title that translates to 'Most Serene'. During the evening hours, as you walk home after dinner, you will find what everyone loves about Venice, a place of mediation and peace.
Great care and attention to detail was taken into consideration when refurbishing these beautiful apartments keeping the classic Venetian style with an added contemporary twist. The interior decorator drew her inspiration from the many Venetian frescoes created in the 1600 and 1700's. The rooms are light and airy. No detail was overlooked, from the custom upholstered furniture to the color choices of the lamps, paintings and even the borders of the custom made curtains. All beautifully furnished with the very best fabrics, furniture and furnishings including the owners antiques passed down through generations
The location is ideal, right at the entrance to Venice's Grand Canal, opposite the Punta della Dogana museum and the Basilica of the Santa Maria della Salute. The Palazzo has a private Jetty and we recommend arriving by water taxi, which we will be happy to arrange for you

Reached from the Mansarda, a staircase takes you to the roof top terrace where you will have 360 degree views of Venice.
Note: Altane are found all over Venice, they are not true terraces, but structures made up of a tray of wooden boards resting on the roof. They rest on small pillars or a side leaning against the loft reached from the attic. Because the small narrow streets that wind around Venice are shaded most of the day, it was a place for Nobles to get some sun and fresh air. Still an ideal place to enjoy an Aperol and soak in the view, watch a sunset or sunrise from here.
