This palazzo looks relatively plain from the outside, but do not let this fool you. Inside it is magnificent with a huge sweeping staircase with frescoes on the walls. Two of the bedrooms house parts of an old Venetian casino. These rooms have amazing stucco plasterwork. The common areas, breakfast and dining rooms are also stunningly beautiful.

Ease of Access from airport:
If getting a private water taxi, it is extremely straightforward as they can pull up outside the hotel. The vaporetto stop Ca’ d’Oro is right by the hotel, so if you get a taxi or bus to Piazzale Roma, you can get the number 1 vaporetto down to here.
