Italy, Venice – Palazzo Giovanelli
Foscarini Giovanelli Palace, a historic building from the 1500s painted with mythological figures by Zelotti, is now home to one of the most elegant 4 star hotels in Venice, rich in charm and a history that includes tenants such as the Mozart family and the King of Denmark, Frederick Christian IV.
The Foscarini family lived at the palace in the eighteenth century, along with their most illustrious representative, Doge Marco Foscarini, who was responsible for the many rare manuscripts, all bound in red leather and stamped with the emblem of the Foscarini family.
Elegant and romantic, the successful mix of decorations, in a perfect balance between modern and traditional, gives Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli an inviting and welcoming aspect, in tune with the impeccable quality of the service of a warm, highly professional and multilingual staff.
A surprising and fascinating Venice surrounds the hotel, overlooking the Grand Canal in the heart of the historic centre. A relaxing, quiet Venice, far from the tourist crowds, between Cà Pesaro and the Church of San Stae.
Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli is right near the stop for the vaporetto (the usual means of transport in Venice), which makes its way past centuries-old palaces towards Piazzale Roma, Venice’s car terminal, and the splendid St. Mark’s Square.
Nestled between the Procuratie buildings, you will find St. Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and El paron de casa, the high bell tower that dominates the square.
Nearby, visit the Venice Casino(Ca’ Vendramin-Calergi), the gorgeous Ca’ d’Oro and the oldest Venice with its artisan shops, the designer shopping in the Mercerie and the lively Rialto area, with its bacari (typical Venetian inns) and the famous market.
