Ca’ Pisani Hotel
Ca’ Pisani Hotel is an elegant 16th century building decorated with original Art Deco furnishings, complete with a wellness area with Turkish bath while offering a roof terrace with sun loungers, shower, bar service and panoramic city views.
La Rivista wine bar serves tastings of cheeses and hams, local cuisine, alongside local wines and desserts.
St. Mark’s Square is an easy 15 minute walk away. Away from the tourist swarms, this quiet district is home to bona-fide Venetians. Behind artistic treasure troves like Galleria dell’Accademia, you’ll find a whimsical labyrinth of picturesque squares and canals. Stroll down Zattere promenade to bask in the setting sun, and dine by candlelight at atmospheric La Bifora.
Venice is a magician. It makes agate palaces vanish into silent fogs, labyrinthine streets disappear at the whim of moody tides, and can even turn the most pedestrian of people into fantastical, masked creatures. Just like its world-famous Carnevale, Venice thrives on mystery and admiration, from the secret passageways that riddle Gothic Palazzo Ducale, to the esoteric powers of the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, to the inexplicable radiance of Titian’s Assunta altarpiece.
Part of the city’s unique appeal is its human scale and anachronistic carless infrastructure, with its narrow, mysterious streets and captivating canals, crossed by hundreds of gracefully arched marble bridges above and gliding, silent gondolas below.
