Location: Palazzo Priuli is an architectural gem that has inspired painters and architects throughout the centuries. The house was built for Procurator Giovanni Priuli in the late fourteenth century and was among the first secular constructions in the city to incorporate several of the architectural innovations from the recently completed Doge's Palace. It consequently marks a significant step toward the full flowering of Venetian Gothic architecture and shows a masterful blending of Italian Gothic elements with delicately carved Moorish traceries. Originally frescoed on the facade by Palma Vecchio, the home is a testament to the wealth and prominence of the noble Priuli family.
Accomodation: Rooms enjoy a bright, southern exposure along the canal "Rio di san Severo". Spacious and comfortable, they are stylishly furnished with original Neo-Renaissance pieces from the late nineteenth century, Murano glass chandeliers, and rich, supple velvets.
