This unique penthouse is without any doubt one of the most fascinating houses in Venice. With its astonishing views from every window, its large marble terrace and unique blend of ancient and contemporary architecture, it sits on top of one of the tallest historical houses of the city, Palazzo Albrizzi.
The 250 sq. mts apartment has 2 double bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms, a large kitchen, an open space with dining table for 6 guests and a sitting room. It's furnished with old and modern design furniture and museum quality paintings heirloom of the Albrizzi family, who built the Palazzo in the 17th century and still owns the entire house.
The terrace is 40 sq. mt. and it's accessible directly from the sitting room.
The fifth floor of the palazzo is reachable with an elevator.
Staying at this apartment in San Polo really made our vacation in Venice special. It was easy to communicate with Orsolo before arriving in Italy. She made our boat reservations for arrival at the airport and transport to the city, and for our return. Orsolo met us at the dock, walked us to the apartment, showed us how everything worked, and left us a nice bottle of Prosecco.
The apartment is gorgeous, the photos are real and the views even more spectacular than they appear on the website. Everything works, plenty of hot water, heat, two large bathrooms, nice kitchen and lots of space. The neighborhood is close to the Rialto bridge, centrally located, yet no tourists around. We ate at a wonderful restaurant nearby and were the only foreigners.
Highly recommend this apartment. The palazzo itself is stunning and sits on a quiet small square.
We arrived in Venice for our first stay during a trip through Italy. Orsola arranged the water taxi from San Marco airport and met us at the stop the driver already knew to take us. This was such a plus after the long flights from California. Orsola was waiting for us and lead us to the Palazzo Penthouse where we stayed for three nights. Every blink of the eye not only in Venice but in this VRBO rental is exquisite. The apartment is very large and accurate to photos. The views from not only the two terraces but each window are breathtaking. The direct area the apartment is located in is quiet and feels like a real neighborhood - We walked to every historic site without trouble - except the prerequisite getting lost on a few Venice streets that is fun and beautiful.
There is a great local restaurant one block from the apartment and one we ate at near Ponte Vecchio but away from the tourists. Orsola recommended both. We stumbled upon a local Italian market where the owner herself made the bruschetta to take away.
The entrance floor to the penthouse is so historical - ?1600 and the lift although tiny is a pleasant means of getting up and down from the top floor especially with baggage. I would recommend this place if you wish to feel like a local and imagine all the incredible history that occurred here. We were two adult couples traveling. My only regret is not having enough time to review some of the wonderful books in the library left from Orsola's family members.
Arrivederci! .... Donna
The apartment is clean & spacious and the living room specially is charming. Kitchen has all the utensils you need, as well as great views. Outside space is generous and the views are simply wonderful. Location of the apartment is central and its easy to get to the main attractions as well as the charming back streets of Venice and to the restaurants, shops etc & the vaparato!
Communication with Orsola was excellent through out ( pre booking - post / meeting us on arrival & arranging departure etc) .
We'd happily stay again. Venice is beautiful & unique and Orsola and the apartment simply complement the city beautifully.
Two friends, my wife Andrea and me had a wonderful and unfogettable stay from may 4th until may 9th in the apartment of Orsola and Giovanni. The whole building is history pure, an we were in the center of it.The apartment leaved nothing to be desired - a lot of very nice antique furnitures, an impressive libary, very much space an of course the two terraces with great views all over the town. The apartment was very clean and comfortable including an elevator. The situation of the building near the Rialto Market is perfect for a real venetian discoverer. In addition we had a very warm welcome from Orsola including a "Welcome Prosecco". All our special wishes were satisfied by her very friendly. Thank you for all. We´ll come back in a few month.

We had an incredible time in this beautiful Palazzo...it felt just so wonderful being in this property, we almost felt as though there was no need to venture out to explore Venice. A nice cold bellini, the breathtaking view over the entire Venice and a good company in this memorable penthouse- a perfect recipe for a lovely summer I would definitely look back fondly.
This wonderful penthouse is located in the Rialto area , less than 15 minutes walk from St. Mark Square and minutes away from Campo San Polo and the Rialto market. It is also walking distance form the major Venetian landmarks like the Frari Cathedral, the San Rocco school (paintings by Tintoretto and Titian), Ca' Rezzonico and the Accademia fine art museum. Water bus stop line 1 is 3 minutes away.
This area is also famous for his typical Venetian restaurants and Bacari where you can have a glass of wine and wonderful canape' !
