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.
A Noble family house: 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.
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.
So much atmosphere and history. Really helpful staff and owner.
A group of 20 friends recently ended a 2 week European vacation with a 4 night stay at 3 units in this marvellous palazzo. It was a perfect way to end our trip and a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience life as a true Venetian. The grand receiving room is stunning. The other rooms have lovely touches and antiques and the owner provides interesting information about the history of the palazzo and the family. Beds are comfortable, the home is spotless and the location perfect. Nestled in a quiet square less than a 10 minute walk to the Rialto bridge and 5 minutes from the vaparetto. The owner was friendly and helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
As wonderful as the palazzo is, what really put the experience over the top was the cook, Marcella. Every day she made us breakfast and either lunch or dinner. Everyone agreed they were the best meals we had in Venice. She even accommodated our request for a special Thanksgiving day feast with turkey and everyone thought it was the best turkey we had ever tasted! Although there was a language barrier, that became part of the fun, as we communicated through an exchange of broken English and Italian supplementing her lively charades enacting recipe ingredients and directions. She was a delight - always smiling and laughing and making us feel so welcome. The cost of the unit was more than made up for by our savings in food and wine (you pay for ingredients and she makes whatever you want). She is an absolute treasure!
I can't recommend this place too highly. A very special home for a very special trip. Thank you so much.
Brought a group of 6 teenagers here for a wonderful 4 days in Venice. Staying in the palazzo is like stepping back in history. Great, quiet location but close to everything. Very clean, well maintained. Best of all was Marta, the lovely, warm cook/housekeeper, who took wonderful care of us and cooked us fabulous dinners every night. Would highly recommend particularly if you have a large group.
Our group of 6 (2 parents, 2 children + 2 grandmothers) were looking for a very special place to stay in Venice that didn't involve us being spread out across multiple hotel rooms. I am so happy that we found Palazzo Albrizzi! Upon entering the enormous welcome hall, the kids exclaimed "is this all ours?!" The palazzo is filled with museum quality history from Riccardo's family. We felt like we were living like 18th century Venetian royalty (except with modern plumbing). Like everyone else before us, we agreed that one of the highlights of staying here was Marta, who was warm, welcoming, an amazing cook, and saw to our every need. My children adored her, as did the "nonnas" (grandmothers in Italian, as we learned from Marta). Is was so relaxing to return to the palazzo after a busy day of touring the gorgeous Venetian sights and have a prosecco on the rooftop terrace, which was green and lovely even in the July heat. If you are looking for a very special, very unique and non-hotel experience, this is your place! Thank you so much Riccardo and Marta!!
Staying in Giulio's and Ricardo's palazzo in Campiello Albrizzi was the most perfect holiday my wife and I have ever had. We had eight friends staying with us in this exquisite palazzo to celebrate a 60th birthday. La Signora Marta, extraordinary chef and major-domo, could not have been more welcoming or accommodating, preparing banquets for us every evening with the freshest of food from the local markets.. Everyone fell in love with her and her cuisine. The palazzo allows you to live a Venetian dream of another era. We expected Byron to walk in and have cocktails with us on the superb terrace. This is the place for the best holiday you will ever have.
The location of Palazzo Albrizzi is excellent for enjoying Venice.The flat is in the Rialto bridge area. It's 12 minutes walking to get to Piazza S. Marco and Palazzo Ducale. There are two waterbus stop 5 minutes away, but there are so many things you can reach just walking ! The Frari Cathedral and S. Rocco School. The Accademia and, if you are interested in modern and contemporary art the Guggenheim Museum and Palazzo Grassi.
Rialto is a very lively place with its fish and vegetable market every morning, and an endless choice of restaurants and wineries where you can enjoy some delicious and savoury finger food along with a glass of prosecco wine.
