Touring Venice, Italy
The Palazzo Stern is a Moorish Fifteenth Century palace overlooking the Grand Canal. This beautiful building was renovated by the Stern family, well-known art collectors, who added two floors and a rooftop Jacuzzi. There are 24 rooms including 5 junior suites and one suite, and a breakfast room. The hotel address is Calle del Traghetto, Dorsoduro 2792.
The Ca’ Maria Adele has been called Venice’s most elegant small hotel. Of course it is beautiful. You may want to stay in one of its five “concept rooms”, such as the Doge’s Room. Those Venetian Doges really knew how to live. It is located near the tip of the district but if you can afford to stay here you can afford transportation to wherever you want to go. In any case the distances are relatively short. There are 12 rooms and 4 suites, plus a breakfast room. This hotel is not particularly recommended for those with small children. The hotel address is Campo Santa Maria della Salute, Dorsoduro 111.
