A 14th-century palazzo in the heart of Venice, with breakfast, a welcome drink and a dinner discount
Handmade Murano-glass chandeliers and museum-worthy interiors set the scene at this former 14th-century Venetian Palazzo on the shore of the city’s Castello district. Add to the mix an enchanting garden with rosebushes and cedar trees, a rooftop terrace and a secluded courtyard, and you get the sense this property, run by the same family since 1856, is somewhere rather special.
Everything about this grand residence exudes style, from the ancient marble-lined walls of the reception hall to the classic Venetian décor that defines each of the guest rooms. Speaking of which, all accommodations are opulent, impressing with soothing color tones, period furnishings, ornate design touches and plenty of modern-day essentials.
For discerning gourmands, dining is available in the signature Gabrielli Restaurant, a sophisticated eatery complete with the glass chandeliers, by artist Archimede Seguso. Here you can savor classic Venetian dishes and sophisticated international cuisine, either on the waterfront terrace or in the shaded courtyard.
Classic Venetian décor characterizes each of the 103 rooms, all of which feature Murano glass, sleek wood flooring, deluxe bed linen and splashes of soothing color.
Handmade Archimede Seguso chandeliers and one-off period furnishings set the scene at Gabrielli Restaurant, a high-end dining spot that serves classic Venetian cuisine and sophisticated international fare. Seating is allocated either on the waterfront terrace or in the secluded courtyard. There are also a gorgeous garden and rooftop terrace where relaxing with an afternoon drink or nightcap is definitely in order during the warmer months.
Staying along Riva degli Schiavoni on the shore of the Castello district, you couldn’t wish for a more central waterside location. Not only will you be a 10-minute walk from St. Mark’s Square, the Doge’s Palace, St. Mark's Basilica and Arsenale, but you’re within easy reach of the stunning Giardini della Biennale – the public gardens that have been the traditional venue for the International Art Exhibition since 1895. City must-dos include watching a glass-blowing demonstration on Murano Island, admiring artworks from the Venetian masters at the Accademia Gallery, taking a ride in a gondola and wandering the streets of Burano Island.
