Full description:

On the opposite bank of the prestigious Scuola Grande Van Axel, where the Rio de la Panada flows onto the Rio Ca' Widmann, we can find this prestigious and ancient ducal residence. This prestigious building belonged to the noble Marcello family until 1474, when it was bought by the family Contarini degli Scrigni. The refurbishment works have been carried out around the middle of 1500, probably by the great architect Scamozzi, who is considered the intellectual father of neoclassicism. In this palace, on September 26, 1553 was born Nicoḷ Contarini, Doge of the "Serenissima" Republic of Venice from 1630. Under the shade of the big trees in the garden of the palace we can still admire the original well of 1600 on which stands the ancient coat of arms with three oblique bands, symbol of the noble lineage.
On the second floor, two entrances leads to the noble apartment, which spreads on two levels. The main floor has a classic Venetian tripartite structure with a large and stunning seventy square meters living room on the center, with amazing panoramic water views over the canals below and the Van Axel Palace. On the two lateral sides, we can find three elegant bedrooms (the two main double bedrooms have both a marvelous view on the water), two kitchens, a dining room, three bathrooms and a laundry room. In one of the master bedrooms we can admire a prestigious traditional Venetian terrazzo floor, decorated with scrolls and floral motifs. On the other side of the main hall, a large balcony of thirteen meters overlooks the entrance garden, the Church of San Giovanni e Paolo and the prestigious water door.
An elegant wooden staircase leads to the top floor, where we can find a lovely sitting room, a study and a bathroom. From these comfortable and bright rooms we can access the large panoramic roof terrace of twenty square meters, which offers a wonderful panoramic view from the majestic church of San Giovanni e Paolo to the famous bell tower of San Marco.

Location Description

Located between San Giovanni e Paolo and Santa Maria dei Miracoli Churches, between Palazzo Pisani and Palazzo Widmann, this unique noble apartment is situated away from the main tourist flow. At the same time, the Rialto Bridge and piazza San Marco are only 10 minutes away.
