Step inside the Ca’ Sagredo and you are instantly transported back to an era of grand masquerade balls in gilt decorated rooms. This former 15th-century palace is one of the oldest buildings in Venice and now a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. It retains many examples of its splendid past such as high ceilings, sweeping frescoes, exquisite stucco work, huge tapestries and an impressive marble staircase. Many of the beautifully decorated and spacious 42 rooms and suites provide Grand Canal views through floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel is perfectly situated in a quiet location on the Grand Canal waterfront, opposite the historical Rialto fish and fruit market. Its splendid location can be enjoyed from the restaurant’s Grand Canal terrace or exclusive rooftop bar. Cox & Kings highly recommends this hotel to art and history enthusiasts, lovers of luxury and romantics alike.
