Bauer’s Il Palazzo, sitting on the Grand Canal, is the quintessential Venetian fantasy.
The Bauer’s Il Palazzo, a striking boutique property overlooking the Grand Canal, has a Gothic façade, bright red awnings and arched lancet windows. Owner Francesca Bortolotto Possati has a background in European art and antiques, and it shows in the skillfully designed interiors, with restored stucco, trompe l'oeil ceilings, crafted woodwork, silk wall coverings and traditional fabrics from Venice’s acclaimed Rubelli and Bevilaqua houses. Ms. Possati has worked with local artisans to recreate 18th-century splendor as well as give a personal touch to this hotel. Just steps from Piazza San Marco, it excels at customizing itineraries for its guests. There's a private dock for transfers, and guests can take advantage of the spa at sister property Bauer’s Palladio Hotel’s Spa on nearby Giudecca Island.
