Il PALAZZO is a cherished family heirloom and boutique hotel majestically residing in one of the most regal addresses in Venice. Behind those arched lancet windows and Gothic façade are the rooms of the privileged. These rooms preside over the heart of the city overlooking the flow of the Grand Canal as it combines with the Giudecca Canal and St. Mark's Basin offering unsurpassed views and the ultimate in refined relaxation. The hotel has been lovingly revitalized as a living link between ancient art and the innovative blend of contemporary European art from the past and present. The exquisite taste and personal touch of proprietress and native Venetian, Francesca Bortolotto Possati, is evident in the lavish detail and luxurious décor of each and every one of the spacious 38 guest rooms and 34 suites. The blend of both new and old, Venetian-crafted flourishes create a passion and spirit alive with the romance and style of a grand and noble Venetian experience.
