Hotel Foscari Palace - Venice
Foscari Palace is a 4-star luxury Venice hotel located right on the banks of the Grand Canal. Built in 1521, this stately palazzo once served as the official residence of the Duke of Gonzaga and has been tastefully restored preserving much of its original grandeur. A comfortable 10-minute stroll from the hotel will bring you to Rialto Bridge, considered the true heart of Venice by many. Hailed in its time as a work of architectural genius, this 16th-century stone bridge links the market area of San Polo with the tourist area of San Marco and houses a multitude of tiny stores selling local Murano glass, jewelry, and linen. The 15th-century Ca' d'Oro—one of the oldest and most important palazzos in Venice—is also just a 5-minute walk from the Foscari Palace. Built for the Contarini family in late-Gothic style, it is now a public museum housing a priceless art collection featuring works by Tiziano, Tullio Lombardo, as well the work of Flemish masters Jan Van Eyck and Antoon Van Dyck. This boutique 4-star hotel in central Venice is also a 2-minute stroll from the Ca' d'Oro vaporetto stop, from where you can hop on a gondola and explore the beautiful waterways of this floating city.
The Hotel Foscari Palace is the picture of elegance. Decorated in classical Venetian style, this 16th-century palazzo blends Byzantine and Gothic influences while retaining the grandeur and refinement one would expect from a former ducal residence. Masterfully carved stone fireplaces, Corinthian columns, wooden beams, and luxuriant indoor palms can be found throughout. The lobby and common areas are spacious and comfortable, featuring plush furniture upholstered in the finest fabric. For a relaxing drink in a romantic setting, retire to the hotel’s elegant cocktail bar and lounge which features an outdoor terrace offering stunning views over Venice. A generous free breakfast buffet is provided and includes fresh eggs, pastries, fruit, and cereal. The Foscari Palace also offers free WiFi throughout the premises and extends its welcome to the entire family–children under 4 stay for free in their parent’s room while small pets are allowed also.
Previous guests of the Hotel Foscari praise its excellent location, wonderful décor, and the fabulous views from the main terrace. The hotel’s attentive, professional staff and generous buffet breakfast also receive their share of compliments.
