In a grand Venetian palazzo, this amazing home is not the kind of place that you come across every day. Relax with a glass of Prosecco on the altana, a typical Venetian rooftop terrace – we love the breathtaking 360-degree views of the city.
Inside, with its ornate furniture, beautiful paintings and baroque atmosphere, you can imagine hosting a masquerade within its walls. It encapsulates the beauty and richness of this once-mighty empire. This home has probably one of the comfiest sofas – it's made of down and feather, so it's very soft, and you'll sink right into it – we felt like Lord Byron lounging here.
The location is as splendid as this apartment – historic Piazza San Marco and Accademia Bridge are just over a five-minute stroll. Opera lovers will be over the moon to learn that Teatro La Fenice is a mere three-minute saunter. Your lovely hosts can arrange cultural guides and boat excursions to ensure you get the most out of your time in this stunning city.
Home truths: *The kitchen ceiling slopes down fairly dramatically, as it's tucked under the eaves
*There's no TV in the living room, just in one of the bedrooms
*The stairs do not have handrails, so if you have children they may need supervision
*The closest water bus stop is Sant’Angelo for quick connections to all of the main attractions via the Grand Canal, as well as for the Alilaguna boat service for Marco Polo Airport
