The Experience

The view is pure Venice; particularly evocative after dark, when the light softens. You can drink your bottle of prosecco with dinner and listen to the gondoliers navigate the canal. Palazzo Tiepolo Passi opens off a narrow alley, a gated courtyard to the rear and a communal hall (complete with marooned vessel) leading to the building’s apartments. Enter a bright salon with marble windows facing the canal and a kitchen hidden in a vast cabinet.

Two bedrooms have king-size beds and there’s an en suite bathroom with a Murano sink. Outside, a private pontoon is a good spot to watch the water traffic; public gondolas and vaporetti leave from here to famous names around the lagoon. You’ll feel like a Venetian, not a passing tourist, as you rub shoulders with the locals.

Some of the city’s finest churches are nearby: the Frari, Venice’s largest, and Scuola Grande di San Rocco, where Tintoretto spent some 23 years painting canvasses. La Serenissima’s most famous playwright, Goldoni, was a near neighbour; the Rialto market is close.

The perfect place/bolthole after a busy day seeing the splendors of Venice. What better way to relax and see the night draw in over Venice from the Grand Canal.

The neighbourhood

San Polo is Venice at its most authentic: centred around the clamour of the Rialto Bridge and its market. The day begins with steaming espresso and ends with apero hour and small plates of ‘cicchetti’ eaten with fingers alongside the canals. The palazzo is flanked either side by similarly grand buildings, with a private pontoon for hopping aboard public gondolas or a passing vaporetto. There are two supermarkets for basics within a short stroll; but do as the Venetians do and shop for pastries and bread in Campo San Toma’s bakery, and the Rialto Market for fruit, veg and fresh fish. Excellent restaurants are close: one Michelin-star Da Fiore, plus more in campi Frari and San Polo.

Local points of interest from Anna Passi

  • Right on the Grand Canal between Rialto Bridge and St.Mark Square,Palazzo Tiepoletto is in the residential area of Venice, where you'll find the true "Venetians" and their life-style.
  • The location and the view are absolutely perfect, the public Gondola crossing the Grand Canal to San Marco and the Vaporetto stop are by the Palace.
  • Our representative in Venice will welcome you directly at the water door of the Palace, if you decide to arrive by water taxi, and it's an unforgettable experience!
  • You can walk all over the commercial area of Rialto with the famous fish and vegetable market and the main sights of Venice like the Frari Church or the Scuola di San Rocco, that are all within a few minutes.
  • Let Palazzo Tiepoletto apartment become your nest in Venice!


Anna Passi

The Passi family have a long history of taking people in – their palazzo in Venice and their apartment in Rome have been in the family for centuries, while the villa in Marche was handed down from a Baroness to a Marquess, and finally to Anna, who opened it as a hotel in 2005. Alongside the Passi’s four adult children – Federico, Almorò, Mila and Niso – the family welcomes guests to enjoy the history, culture and beauty of their own, genuine side to Italy.
