Just steps from St. Mark’s Square, Palazzo Stern was once the private home of a renowned art collector and still exhibits all of the grand vestiges. It’s the perfect venue for taking in the goings on of the Grand Canal, especially during the annual regatta.
Inside, the hotel is all about precious wall fabrics, curtains and drapes, oriental carpets, stuccos, Murano glass and vases, chandeliers and appliques created by glassblowing Venetian masters. Each of the 24 rooms, plus 4 suites have that truly rich Italian feel—a great escape after a long day of strolling the streets. NB: Yes, there is a lovely terrace, but make sure it is available to all the guests and has not been reserved for a private party, says my Insider Louise Aaronson.
Rates from €130 (low season) and €230 (high season).
