Palazzo Malipiero nand nVenice

Palazzo Malipiero is located on the Grand Canal in the very heart of Venice on San Samuele square, one of the most fascinating and prestigious areas. It stands just across from Palazzo Grassi Exhibition Center,is well served by public transport, and is only five minutes' walk from San Marco square.
It is centrally situated, at the crossroads of the city's cultural and artistic areas. The splendid Italian-style garden with a view on the Grand Canal makes it even more unique.

Originally built in Byzantine times, the nine centuries' architectural history of the palace can be retraced in its complex structure: each generation of owners left its stamp of caring and fervour for the arts.
But even more fascinating are the historical and human dramas that took place here throughout the centuries.

For some years as from 1740 Giacomo Casanova lived in Palazzo Malipiero. In spite of his young age (he was just 15 years old), he began his successful social life in these very rooms. Here he gave a broad demonstration of his innate gift for the art of love.

The present owners have handled the recent restoration with special care in respecting the palace's historical background. They have maintained Palazzo Malipiero's ancient splendour and the traditional prestige, and, in upgrading installations and equipment to modern standards, improved the great comfort of its spacious rooms.
