How to get here
By Water Taxi
Arrive at Ca’nova in true Venetian style. We are happy to book a water taxi for you. You will be picked up at the airport or station, your journey will take you down the Grand Canal and to the Palazzo’s private dock where our butler will be awaiting to greet you.
The palazzo is conveniently located a five-minute walk from the San Marco vaporetto stop (public water bus). The trip on Line n°2 takes 20 minutes from the train station. and 1 hour 15 minutes from the airport (Alilaguna).
Walking through Venice is always wonderful and taking the 30-minute stroll from the train station will help you get acquainted (or re-acquainted) with the city’s maze of laneways and canals. Fear not, you won’t have to worry about getting lost. The palazzo lies very close to San Marco and the frequent signs leading to the main square will help guide you.
Sightseeing and attractions in the immediate surroundings
Piazza San Marco
The only “piazza” in Venice (the other squares are called “Campo”), so when the Venetians talk about the Piazza, you know they mean San Marco. No stay in Venice is complete without walking through this mythical square—you can do this minus the crowds and with a little extra magic at night.
Opened in 1720 and considered the oldest café in Venice, this elegant establishment on Piazza San Marco is the perfect place for a coffee and people watching. The live music adds a stylish Venetian touch.
Marvel at the grandeur of the Venetian Republic at the former residence of the Doge and the seat of Venetian government. Its Bridge of Sighs might not take your breath away, but its monumental rooms, sculptures and paintings surely will.
Although you can no longer rub shoulders with former patrons like Ernest Hemingway, Alfred Hitchock and Orsen Welles, this legendary bar still serves an unrivalled dry martini as well as other skillfully prepared classic drinks and is a favourite of locals and savvy travellers alike and lies a 5 min walk from the Palazzo Ca’nova
Teatro La Fenice
considered one of the world’s best opera houses, The Fenice lies a 5 min walk from the Palazzo Ca’nova. Relive the greatest moments of opera history by attending a performance of masterpieces by such as Rossini, Bellini and Verdi. During the day you can take a tour of the theatre without attending a performance.
On the opposite end of the basilica San Marco, this museum is set within buildings dating from the Napoleonic era which ended the powerful reign of the Doges. These spectacular interiors host exhibits on the art, culture and history of Venice.
Million Dollar Mile
It may be hard to resist doing some shopping while staying at Palazzo Ca’nova—the city’s top luxury shops, including Prada, Dior, Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana, line the next street.
Guarding the mouth of the Grand Canal across from Ca’nova, Madonna della Salute, the emblematic Venetian church, was built to commemorate the end of the plague and sits on more than 100'000 wooden poles.
