If you’re looking for an elegant hotel in the heart of Venice that offers luxurious comfort and supreme hospitality, Palazzo Giovanelli ticks all the right boxes. Ideally located, the hotel overlooks the Grand Canal, next to San Stae church and near to the famous St. Mark's Square. The building dates back to the 1500s and has a long history of housing notable guests, including Mozart and Frederick Christian IV, the King of Denmark.
Sleep in historic surroundings
Palazzo Giovanelli has a wide range of luxury accommodation with historical features and modern amenities such as Wi-Fi, TV and air conditioning. The loft space offers a romantic space with dormer windows, while standard and superior rooms include stylish furniture, Rubelli fabrics and marble bathrooms. Junior Suites have original features from the 16th century, including exposed ceiling beams and large windows.
For the ultimate in indulgence, deluxe rooms boast views over the canal or the garden, while the Presidential Suite is where the Mozart family once stayed and has been meticulously restored to its original style.
Eating and drinking
The hotel’s dining room serves a range of authentic Italian food in chic surroundings, and the spacious bar has a selection of fine wines and cocktails to choose from. Guests also enjoy a sumptuous buffet breakfast every morning.
Explore romantic Venice
Palazzo Giovanelli is the perfect base from which to explore Venice, one of the world’s most romantic cities. You can travel around the city on foot and get lost down the maze-like streets, or opt for a leisurely gondola ride and soak up the sights from the waterways. For a truly special experience, why not view Venice from the air with a ride in a helicopter? Whichever way you choose to see the city, you’re guaranteed to make memories that will last for a lifetime.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
