At the Palazzo Morosini degli Spezieri you can live close to the beautiful sights of Venice but far from the tourist crowds. The Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge are both within walking distance. This magnificent 15th-century townhouse has its own boat mooring and – rather unusually for the lagoon city – a small secluded garden.
The Palazzo, which was completely renovated over the course of four years, now houses nine modern apartments between 40 and 130 square meters in size. Their names and colour accents bear witness to the historic palazzo’s past as a spice store. High, beamed ceilings and terrazzo or wooden floors create a splendid setting for the part modern, part classical décor in subdued colours. Broad windows provide picturesque views of the old city palaces and the canal. Some of the apartments also feature balconies from which you can enjoy these views in the open air.
What to do
Sightseeing in Venice. There are several popular restaurants and bars in the immediate vicinity of the Palazzo.

Depending on the size of the apartment, they are suitable for couples and families. As the apartments can also be connected, they are perfect for larger groups.

The garden with its outdoor kitchen and view onto the canal is a fantastic venue for receptions, dinners, cocktail parties etc.
