where we are
A surprising and fascinating Venice surrounds 4 star Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli, overlooking the Grand Canal in the heart of the historic center. A relaxing, quiet Venice, far from the tourist crowds, between Cà Pesaro and the Church of San Stae.
Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli is right near the stop for the vaporetto (the usual means of transport in Venice), which makes its way past centuries-old palaces towards Piazzale Roma, Venice's car terminal, and the splendid St. Mark's Square.
Nestled between the Procuratie buildings, you will find St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace and El paron de casa, the high bell tower that dominates the square.
Right near Hotel Palazzo Giovanelli, visit the Venice Casino(Ca' Vendramin-Calergi), the gorgeous Ca’ d’Oro and the oldest Venice with its artisan shops, the designer shopping in the Mercerie and the lively Rialto area, with its bacari (typical Venetian inns) and the famous market.
- Campo San Stae: The Church of San Stae, a temple of Venetian paintings from the 1700s, is located next to the hotel. Inside you will find paintings by Tiepolo, Piazzetta and Ricci.
- Cà Pesaro: A masterpiece of the seventeenth century, this palace is home to the Museum of Modern Art. It contains works by Chagall, Matisseand Klimt and many others. Not to be missed!
- Venice Casino: Facing the hotel, it's just 2 minutes away on the vaporetto. This historic gambling house is located in the beautiful halls of Ca' Vendramin Calergi, a masterpiece from the 1500s.
