PALAZZO VENART LUXURY HOTEL
PALAZZO VENART LUXURY HOTEL marries Old World Venetian elegance with modern-day services and facilities—an inviting new option for those seeking luxury accommodations in the City of Water. With a rich history dating back centuries, the Palazzo Venart (formerly the Palazzo Bacchini delle Palme) once housed some of the city’s most notable figures. Completely remodeled, it is now a luxurious hotel located in the Santa Croce district alongside the Grand Canal. Many of the original features, such as the Gothic wings that now host the exhibition centre and a private home, have been retained and preserved alongside the main Palazzo complex, whose eighteen rooms and suites serve as the hotel proper. Marble stairways and historic frescoes add period charm to the corridors, rooms, and ceilings, while valuable murals capture the essence of the Palazzo’s extensive history. The front entrance, accessed by private water taxi arranged by the hotel, is surrounded by beautiful gardens in which guests can relax with a drink or take in the views over the canal.
Several of the Palazzo’s rooms and suites also offer fabulous canal views, and all are uniquely decorated to marble bathtubs, parquet flooring, designer furniture, luxury bedding, and authentic Venetian artwork. Just off the main lobby is a private courtyard whose magnolia trees create a shaded oasis. Set within this romantic enclave is the hotel’s GLAM restaurant, helmed by the award-winning—and twice Michelin-starred—contemporary Italian chef Enrico Bartolini. This intimate space is the perfect venue in which to showcase classic Venetian fare with a contemporary twist, and Bartolini and his team have certainly introduced an exciting new restaurant to the Venetian culinary scene. Dishes like risotto with porcini mushrooms and curry, spaghetti with eel and fennel, and veal sweetbreads with roasted pepper, among others, are sure to become classics. Complimented by an extensive wine list and attentive service, a meal at GLAM will be one of the highlights of your stay.
