Elegant 14th-century palazzo on the Grand Canal with ornate chandeliers and museum-worthy antiques
With its pink façade rising majestically above the Grand Canal, Ca’Sagredo, a 14th-century noble residence turned five-star hotel, is hard to miss. This unique property offers a chance to experience Venice’s rich history firsthand. Step off the boat at the property’s very own vaporetto stop and into the marble entrance, which has welcomed distinguished Venetian nobility for centuries, and you'll be greeted by a grand staircase, ornate chandeliers and museum-worthy antiques.
Bed and Bath
You could take the elevator to your room, but climbing the grand staircase and admiring the hand-painted frescoes on the walls is a far more enticing option. All 42 rooms and suites define Old World elegance, offering such ornate touches as plush dressing areas, gilded headboards and antique furnishings. Like Venice itself, the rooms have an unmistakable air of romance. The decor is elegant without being stuffy, ancient but full of luxurious upgrades — in short, Venice for the modern traveler.
Days begin with an elegant breakfast buffet, opera playing softly in the background. After a day of exploring the city on foot, a refreshing cocktail in the Incontro bar might be in order. Anyone with a serious interest in food should request the tasting menu at L’Alcova, the ground-floor restaurant overlooking the Grand Canal, which serves up dishes with ingredients from Venice’s own lagoon. Ca'Sagredo grants you a window into the lives of Venetian nobles. Step onto the ornate stone balconies to take in the very same Grand Canal views the Sagredos once saw. You'll walk the same marble floors, feast beneath the same dramatic frescoes and admire the same sculptures as the privileged nobles who came before. You could get used to this.
In the Area
Even the ride from the airport feels like sightseeing when you board a water taxi, which will bring you through various small canals to the private entrance of Ca’Sagredo. Gain another perspective on Venice by climbing to the top of the campanile in the Piazza San Marco to gaze out over the red rooftops. Wander through the Rialto fish market early in the morning to watch chefs and locals bargain for seafood and produce. Taste dishes from executive chef Michele Potenza, cooking in back-to-nature style with local products such as lagoon clams.
