The Hotel Palazzo Vitturi occupies a 13th Century Venetian-Byzantine palazzo that was renovated a few years ago. It overlooks the Campo Santa Maria Formosa, a large and lively neighborhood square that's almost equidistant from two of Venice's most important landmarks: the Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge.

Architectural detail of Palazzo VitturiThe setting couldn't be better, and the hotel also has a lot going for it--such as impeccably restored frescoes, terrazzo floors, plasterwork, wood paneling, and stone carvings, leavened by modern touches that include marble bathrooms, wheelchair access in all areas, and air conditioning throughout the premises.

Santa Maria Formosa Church from Palazzo VitturiJust as important, the rates are reasonable by Venice hotel standards--especially for an historic property with so much artwork and atmosphere.

  • The second photo is a close-up of the Campo Santa Maria Formosa. The Hotel Palazzo Vitturi is directly across from the church, just to the left of the Calle dei Orbi.
