Escape the madding crowds when you vacation in the seriously impressive Palazzo Luna, located in the quiet Castello Orientale district of historic Venice, on Italy’s northeast coast. This former fifteenth century Doge’s palazzo has six spacious double bedrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to fourteen guests in some style, ideal for a large family gathering, or friends’ get together.

The palazzo has been recently restored to its former glory, cleverly combining classic historic treasures with modern amenities. The property comes with complimentary air conditioning, central heating, and Wi-Fi throughout, and its own internal elevator, gym, and a jacuzzi bath. The palazzo has been exquisitely interior designed, with cool contemporary pieces, natural wood, and billowing crisp white fabrics. Alfresco living space is provided by a decked rooftop terrace and a small garden. Words alone cannot do this palazzo justice, staying is believing!

Enter the villa at ground floor level, where you will find the most magnificent professional kitchen, fully fitted with stainless steel equipment, and commercial grade appliances. Work off those delicious dinners in the adjacent gym, with a shower room, Jacuzzi bath, and access to a small garden.

Take the stairs to the first floor where there is a large spacious sitting room, that opens onto a furnished shaded alfresco terrace, the perfect place for aperitivo. A second smaller seating area is the reading room with a television, bookcases and windows overlooking the water. The dining room has a table to seat twenty guests, for some seriously impressive entertaining. A second kitchen serves the two dining spaces, whilst a third has counter eating space, and stairs to the roof terrace. There are two beautifully-appointed double bedrooms on the first floor. The king size bedroom has water views, private access to a covered terrace, and an ensuite bathroom with a shower. The second bedroom has twin beds, and an ensuite shower room.

On the second floor there are a further four double bedrooms. The largest has a queen size bed, water views, and ensuite bathroom with a bath and separate shower, and a balcony that overlooks a Palladian church. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, and ensuite bathroom with a shower, and Turkish bath, and an extra bed in the room, that is ideal for a child. The third has a queen size bed and an ensuite shower room, whilst the fourth has twin beds, and an ensuite shower room.

In the loft space, there are four sofa beds, the perfect place for teenagers to hang out, with an open kitchen, and a separate shower room. Access the one hundred and fifty square metre roof top terrace from the upper floor, where you can enjoy alfresco cocktails and dinner overlooking the Venetian city skyline. Or dine on the waterfront deck in the ground floor garden, as the gondolas go by.

Palazzo Luna is a former fifteenth century Doge’s palazzo, located away from the madding tourist crowds, in the Castello Orientale district of historic Venice. The palazzo is near to the Giardini della Biennale, famous for its fabulous art exhibitions, the beautiful Basilica di San Pietro Castello, and the Naval Museum.

The international Marco Polo airport is a fifty five minute private water taxi journey away, or eighty minutes by the public vaporetto. There are three vaporetto routes near to the palazzo, which can whisk you away to many of the major sights you will want to see. One of the joys of a holiday in Venice is walking over many of the four hundred bridges, and some of one hundred and eighteen canals, as the city reveals its colourful history.

It is a twenty minute walk to the impressive St Mark’s Square, and the eleventh century Basilica, where mass is still held today. Visit the Byzantine Doge’s Palace, climb the clocktower, and cross the Bridge of Sighs. On the other side of St Mark’s Square is the Correr Museum, highlighting the history of Venice in its royal rooms and library.

Take time out to stroll around the square, window shop in the jewellery stores and designer dress shops, before sitting down for tea in Florian’s, whilst the orchestra plays your favourite tunes. Cross the bridge or take a gondola taxi to the Napoleonic Accademia Gallery to view classical Venetian Renaissance art, and the nearby seventeenth century Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute, with its iconic cupola and twelve paintings by Titian. Make time to visit the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, an homage to twentieth century modern art, housed in her original palazzo home. Take a three island tour to see the glassblowers at work on Murano, the colourful houses and lacemakers of Burano, and the seventh century cathedral on Torcello, with its Byzantine art. Cross the Adriatic Sea to the Lido, famous for its grand hotels, long sandy beaches, and for those who like to chance their luck, there’s a casino too.

Venice is a food lovers paradise, sample the local dish of Baccala Mantecato, a salted cod dish, best served with a chilled white wine. A walk to St Mark’s Square will take you through back streets full of shops selling the very best quality hand crafted leather goods, silk scarves, and cashmere sweaters.

For the romantics, get into a gondola and cruise the canals, or simply take one, to cross the water from one side to the other. In the evening enjoy a stroll to Harry’s Bar for a Bellini, before a night at the opera at the famous Fenice Theatre, then dine in a local restaurant, serving traditional Venetian dishes overlooking the Grand Canal, under a Tiepolo blue sky. If you are lucky enough to be there during Carnival time, make sure you wear a mysterious mask, and join in the fun and frolics of this fabulous festival.

Venice, a captivating city situated in the northeastern part of Italy, is a place like no other. Often referred to as the "City of Canals," Venice is renowned for its unique and mesmerising beauty.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

A visit to Venice is fabulous for kids of all ages. Palazzo Luna is near to the Giardini della Biennale, a woodland park created by Napoleon Bonaparte, and famous for its cats.

Kids love a ride on the local vaporetto water bus, climb aboard for a cruise down the main waterways of Venice and see the history in the magnificent palaces that line the route. Get off at St Mark’s Square, and visit the Doge’s Palace, where they can’t fail to be impressed by the ducal horses, and the Golden Staircase, that leads to the fourteenth century Great Hall, and the twenty two metre painting by Titian. Cross the Bridge of Sighs and explore the dark dungeons where the Dukes held their prisons. Play a game of Hunt the Winged Lion, the symbol of the city, and to be found on buildings all over Venice. Go for a gondola ride, and get off at Zattere, where they can enjoy an ice cream at the famous Gelateria Nico.

Take a picnic to the Giardini Pubblica, where there is a children’s playground and a grotto. Shop for masks for carnival time, or your kids can make their own at Ca’ Macaria. Take a trip to Murano, where they can watch the glass blowers make incredible pieces they’ll want to take home. Cross the sea to the Lido, famous for its sandy beaches, where even out of season they can build castles, and swim in the sea.

Go out of town to Villa Pisani, travel down the Brenta Canal that connects Venice to Padua, where they can lose themselves in the amazing maze, and the double staircase that goes to the top of the tower.
