Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday apartment in San Polo - Ca' Albrizzi
A stunning piece of history in the Rialto area.
This palace is an historic building located in San Polo, near the Rialto Bridge. It was built at the end of the seventeenth century by a noble venetian family, and has remained in the family since then. Not far from the Grand Canal, it commands its own small square in the quiet of a lovely neighbourhood.
The Palazzo is actually a very large luxurious apartment which occupies the Piano Nobile (the most significant floor) of the four-story family palazzo.
The most striking feature of this imposing apartment is its enormous Gallery/Grand Hall, which runs almost the full length of the apartment. It has well-regarded museum quality paintings on its walls, very tall windows and a wooden ceiling.
The palazzo is elegant and luminous. There is wonderful antique furniture throughout. Significant artwork, and family heirlooms.

Important frescoes in the sitting rooms and dining room by Hayez and Borsato (who worked at La Fenice) have been recently restored. Several rooms have silk-covered walls. The library walls are covered in original mahogany cupboards for books. From the tall windows of the apartment there are views of gardens and rooftops of Venice. These views can also be enjoyed from a large terrace with lovely plantings, tables and chairs. Several rooms have fireplaces. The family regularly uses this apartment, so guests will enjoy the feeling of an exclusive and magnificent Venetian home.

Guestbook comments from the owner
our stay at Palazzo Albrizzi was perfect. We had a wonderful time in Venice - with sunshine and aqua alta...and really enjoyed having the privilege of staying at the wonderful palazzo. But, what made it really perfect, was Martha. The room and bathrooms were immaculate every day, she is a very sweet lady and her cooking was the best in Venice. Thank you and another big thank you to her!
I am just trying to imitate her artichoce lasagne but doubt that it will taste anything like the lasagne she cooked for us! We are already planning to come back in two years.
