Hotel San Cassiano Ca'Favretto

Italian Cities, Venice

  • Breakfast room overlooking the Grand Canal
  • Located just a few minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge

Step back in time with this delightful 14th century palazzo, once home to the Venetian Realista painter Giacomo Favretto, and now a popular choice with Citalia guests. Historically important, Hotel San Cassiano Ca’ Favretto was also the residence of noble families. Today it is a Residenza d'Epoca, or listed building. The San Cassiano's public rooms are decorated to embody a traditional Venetian style and the pretty breakfast room overlooks the Grand Canal.

In addition to the 10 minutes' walk to the Rialto Bridge, an unusual yet interesting sight nearer to the hotel is La Peschiera, the site of Venice’s six centuries old busy fish market. Hidden away in a quiet street, this unique and very Venetian hotel lies on the edge of the Grand Canal, sitting virtually opposite Palazzo Sagredo’s waterfront façade with its exemplary Veneto-Byzantine and Gothic arches.

The hotel has 36 rooms (official rating 4 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-11 years. Minimum stay 2 nights arriving on a Friday and Saturday.
