It only takes a few steps on foot from Palazzo Giovanelli to plunge in the magic of Venice: next to the Hotel there are the majestic Church of San Stae, with rich, valuable marble decorations and paintings by Tiepolo, and Ca’ Pesaro, a sumptuous sixteenth-century palace that nowadays houses the Modern Art Museum.
Right in front of the Hotel, in the splendid sixteenth-century halls of Ca' Vendramin Calergi, there is the Venice Casino; just beyond, 600 m away, the Rialto bridge and the Rialto market, beating heart of the city. It only takes a few minutes on foot to get to the Jewish Ghetto, the oldest in Europe, and Basilica dei Frari, the biggest church in Venice, with works by Tiziano and Bellini as well as the tombs of Canova and Tiziano, of many dogi and commanders.
Ca’ D’Oro is on the other bank of the Grand Canal, St. Mark’s Square, with the splendid St. Mark’s Basilica, Doge's Palace and the Bridge of Sighs, are easily reachable; in a few minutes more you’ll get to the Gallerie dell’Accademia, the richest collection of Venetian art, and Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute.
