The Alighieri “B” is one of four apartments comprising the whole top floor of this authentic historical Palazzo with great canal views, found in the west side of Castello District, only a few minutes’ walk from San Marco Square. You can reach it 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 very central.
The entire property has been completely and luxuriously refurbished in 2013: the elevator has been installed, the original terrazzo flooring and art-deco inspired inlaid parquet renovated, 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 of the Alighieri Palace on request.

It has a 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.

My family of four including two teenagers stayed in the Alighieri 'B' unit in June. It exceeded our expectations and was even better than the photographs. The view from the dining / living area windows was fabulous. The shutters open and you can look out over the beautiful canal below. There are no screens so we did have a few mosquito's get in while the shutters were open. The lift was much appreciated and the location was great. There is a market just a five minute or less walk which we really utilized. The host was helpful in meeting us from the private water taxi stop in order to find the unit and also pointed out the market. The unit is very large and on the top floor of the building. We are accustomed to softer bed sheets but the beds were comfortable. The unit also has good room darkening drapes. The area is quiet, quaint, and centrally located away from the crowds. We never heard the neighbors in the other units but did see them occasionally in the entry way or on the lift. We hope to return some day!June 2018, Ann (USA)
Very well located not far from the Riva degli Schiavoni and just a bit north of the Hotel Metropole (highly recommended for drinks and dinner) and the Chiesa San Giorgio dei Greci. The apartment is as it appears in photographs, a comfortable, sun-drenched, well-appointed space. The water pressure is great, the AC is sufficient even in the blazing heat, and the service amenities (dishwasher and other kitchen appliances, laundry in the kitchen pantry, ground floor sauna and additional laundry, and the much-appreciated lift to the top floor) are all in perfect working order. The various rooftop terraces would be a pleasure to use in cooler times than July and August. This is a lovely apartment to which we would (and will) happily return.July 2017, Joe (United States)
