One of the oldest historical residences of the Serenissima lies in the heart of Venice, embraced by sinuous canals and evocative streets. It’s an imposing palace, built between the end of the XVI and the beginning of the XVII century. It has been the home of many noble Venetian families who have succeeded here for years.
As soon as you come across Campo Santa Maria Formosa, the grandeur of the external façade will capture your gaze: it is white, clean and Baroque. This style merges with the renaissance forms of the other facades and such a complementary contrast creates a rare harmony.
All this historical and artistic value has been protected and preserved over the years. In fact, it remains visible in all the rooms that give life to the Ruzzini Palace Hotel.

Once you enter the Ruzzini Palace Hotel, it will transports you to another era, where the historical significance of the building is more alive than ever. You can admire sparkling crystal chandeliers, exposed beams, Venetian floors and embroidered drapes.
Among the portraits that stand out above the reception desk, we find that of the “landlord” Carlo Ruzzini, 113th Doge of Venice. Modern and luxury details abound and blend perfectly into the environment, giving you a feeling of comfort and immediate elegance.
