Liassidi Palace Hotel is an elegant boutique ideally positioned for those wanting to visit the Venice Biennale festival. Located on the border between the Castello and San Marco districts, you’re just a short walk away not only from the cultural goings-on in Castello and Arsenale, but also from the iconic Piazzo San Marco. The décor of this 15th-century palazzo is luxurious, with Murano glass chandeliers and exposed beams, complemented by contemporary and early 20th-century art. With charm and élan in equal measure, Liassidi Palace Hotel is the perfect spot to explore Venice’s rich culture.
The bar at the Liassidi Palace is ideal for partaking in the tradition of aperitivo, where you can savour a refreshing spritz accompanied by light snacks. Afterwards, head out to one of the fantastic restaurants located nearby. Osteria di Santa Marina, an elegant trattoria situated on a pretty square, is perfect for a special Venetian experience and is just under a ten-minute walk from the hotel.
Bedrooms are spread across five floors of the 15th-century palazzo, and stand out due to their generous size and sophisticated interiors. Expect rooms full of light with theatrically draped windows, oak and walnut furniture, wooden floors and splashes of 20th century design pieces from Gustav Klimt, Amedeo Modigliani, Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso to name just a few. Most of the rooms have views over the canal and some guests will have the privilege of overlooking the Basin of San Marco with the church of the island of San Giorgio. Others overlook the courtyard, city streets and the church of San Giorgio dei Greci.
Liassidi Palace is within walking distance of many of Venice’s greatest cultural masterpieces. Take a stroll to the Piazza San Marco, dominated by the breathtaking façade and iconic bell tower of the Basilica, or wander the opulent corridors of Venetian power at the Palazzo Ducale. The impressive Byzantine-inspired Church of Madonna della Salute is just across the Grand Canal in Dorsoduro.
For a taste of authentic Venice, turn instead down the Calle della Madonna into the atmospheric alleys and small squares of Castello, where you can watch Venetians go about their daily lives.
