The Alighieri Palace is composed by four independent apartments found at the top floor of an authentic historical palace, luxuriously restored and furnished in 2013, sharing communal amenities such as elevator, terrace and great canal views.
It is found in the west side of Castello District, only a few minutes’ walk from San Marco Square, one of the last integrally authentic parts of the city. In the surroundings there are lots of artisan and antique ateliers, local food shops and delicious osterie (traditional restaurants). Some of the cultural landmarks that can be found in Castello beside the well-known Arsenale and Biennale gardens include the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, the Scuola of San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, the church of San Giorgio dei Greci, the Campo Santa Maria Formosa, the Church of San Zaccaria and many others.
The Alighieri can be reached from Marco Polo Airport by private water taxi in about 20 minutes ride through the lagoon, or in less than 5 minutes’ walk from the Vaporetto (ferry boat) stop San Zaccaria, thus conveniently located.
Beside installing the elevator, during the recent renovation the original terrazzo flooring and art-deco inspired inlaid parquet where fixed, frescoes and stuccoes brought back to the ancient splendor, the spacious terrace equipped with table, sunshade and sun chairs, at the ground floor a Sauna is available for the use of guests (on request at € 10 per person).
This apartment can be accessed from a very bright and elegant shared entrance hall giving on to the communal terraces. The Alighieri "B" features a very prestigious and spacious living/dining room with the most remarkable stuccoed ceiling, large windows facing Rio di San Lorenzo and offering a stunning panoramic canal view, elegant furnishing and a modern full optional kitchen for chef-proof dining up to 8 people. There is a great master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a second room with a double sofa-bed with its bathroom.
The Alighieri "A" is a small but very practical studio apartment composed of a double bed (with two single mattresses that can be prepared also as twin) a nice kitchenette and a small but well-designed marble bathroom with shower.
The Alighieri "C" has a compact living/dining room with stunning canal view overlooking Rio di San Lorenzo and a modern kitchen, plus two double/twin bedrooms with two excellent bathrooms, offering total comfort and privacy to 4 guests.
At the Alighieri "D" is composed by a welcoming hallway that leads you straight into the grand master bedroom, where superb furnishings and plenty of natural light really enhance the beauty of this exquisite bedroom. The elegant living room showcases a contemporary and functional open plan kitchen, while offering very comfortable sitting space on a designer sofa. There is an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub and a further en-suite bathroom with shower for the second bedroom. The apartment features a spacious attic floor that can be used as sitting room, play room or extra bedroom with lovely matching twin beds, suitable for children or teenagers.
This combination of four apartments is perfect for groups of up to 14 people.

We were a group of 9 and took all 4 apartments. The Palazzo Alighieri (composed of Alighieri A, B, C & D) has been recently renovated with modern kitchens and marble bathrooms. Each apartment had it's own well-equipped kitchen and sitting room. Free WiFi. One apartment had a very large kitchen and sitting/dinning room which we used as our communal area. Beautiful views over surrounds and canal. The laundry on the ground floor was excellent. There was also a sauna that we didn't get time to use. The outside verandah and rooftop was lovely for an afternoon drink. This spacious Palazzo exceeded our expectations. The location not far from St Marks was great. We found Truly Venice an excellent company to deal with and would not hesitate to use them again.May 2016, Andrew and Virginia (Australia)
Palazzo Alighieri was a wonderful home base, indeed an oasis, for my entire family during our stay. We rented all 4 apartments, A, B, C, and D. Apt A was a wonderful and modern equipped efficiency apartment, great for a single or couple. Apt B was grand and beautifully furnished, with a large bedroom and huge en-suite bathroom, a semi-private second bedroom area with additional bath, huge dining room and living room, and substantial kitchen, with gorgeous views looking over the Rio San Lorenzo Canal and surrounding area. We originally had assigned the beautiful and historic corner bedroom to my mother (our 84 year old matriarch), who then decided to switch rooms with her niece because mom prefers a shower to a large bath! The kitchen was thoroughly modern & equipped, and the kitchen and dining/living room of Apt B was my family's main gathering area. Apt C was a two bedroom/two bath apartment with its own self contained kitchen and dining area. Apt D was again two bedroom/two bath with a half bath in the hallway, with an additional loft for teenagers or an additional couple. It had a lovely kitchen with living room around a central island bar. Each apartment could operate autonomously if you are traveling with a group of friends, or you can rent them all for a large family gathering. A double decker terrace off of the central hall linking all 4 apartments provided exceptional views of the Castello neighborhood rooftops, as well as a great gathering place for adults to take an aperitif after a hard day of tourist visits. We were 15 people, 9 adults and 6 children, and we fit comforatbly with plenty of private space and no crowded effects. The air-conditioning was a delightful comfort when returning home during the heat wave of our days there. And each unit provided exceptional privacy, but also a collective gathering place for all 15 of us. It is a delightful set of suites which I will happily recommend to everyone I know who may want an exceptional stay in Venice. I would love to return on my next visit to La Serenissima! Thomas provided us with a wonderful welcome and superb orientation to our neighborhood. At his recommendation, we had Gelato at our neighborhood Gelato store almost everyday, and were able to navigate the vaporetto system easily. Thanks again for the professionalism and excellent service of Truly Venice. I hope to use you again.June 2016, Jerome (Texas, USA)
When we chose Venice for our family reunion, we despaired about finding an ideal location for fifteen people for eight nights -- in high season! Truly Venice answered our dreams and more by suggesting the four apartments of Palazzo Alighieri. We were two grandparents, four adult children and their spouses, five grandchildren aged 12 - 21, and the site gave us all room to spread out, have privacy, gather for late night conversation, and more. Apartment C in particular suited a family of four. It's carefully furnished, light and cheerful, with lovely views. Privacy suits this group, so the apartment, slightly around a corner from others, was perfect. We used apartment B as our social space and gathering spot, with the grandparents in the large bedroom and one teenage in the sofa bed. It was ideal, with its large sofa and dining table in the spacious and gracious "salone". Apartment A housed one couple very comfortably, while D held two couples with two young adults happily up in the comfy loft. And the terrace! Venice was HOT and quite crowded, but the terrace with its umbrella was where everyone gravitated after a long day sightseeing. We can't say enough positive things about our stay. The location is ideal, far enough from San Marco to be quiet, but close enough for daily treks. Many fine restaurants are close by, but again away from the tourist fray. The Truly Venice team made our planning and arrival easy and stress free, anticipating our questions and our needs at every step. Thank you!June 2017, Diane (Florida, US)
