Palazzetto Pisani & Palazzo Foscolo can be reached from the Grand Canal through a private water entrance on Rio del Santissimo or by the narrow Calle Genova with access from Campo Santo Stefano. In Palazzetto Pisani you can find the Reception & the Conciergerie, at your disposal 24H.

The Bar&Restaurant il Pisanino and Salone Pisani, which serves as a breakfast room and gala dinner, provides reserved spaces for our guests.

The elegant and brightly lit Salone del Doge is situated on the Noble floor, with balconies overlooking the Grand Canal and offering a unique view; to the left the Basilica della Madonna della Salute and Punta della Dogana, to the right the Accademia Bridge, and in front the Guggenheim Museum and opulent Palazzo Barbarigo.

Palazzetto Pisani Boutique Resort is located near the Accademia Bridge and Campo Santo Stefano, overlooking the Grand Canal, in the most elegant area of the city, full of art, culture and history.

If you arrive on foot from “Ponte dell’Accademia” you will arrive in Campo Santo Stefano square; you will find the restaurant “Art Blue Cafè” on the right, go behind it and you will see the huge Palazzo Pisani di Santo Stefano, today the music conservatory; walk in front of this Palazzo and after the arch: you will see the “Sottoportego Pisani” (sort of gallery); proceed inside it and pass the iron gate in the middle of the “soportego”, than you will arrive at the Palazzetto.

Palazzetto Pisani History
historyThe Pisani family appeared on the Venetian scene during the 14th century and soon became well known for their wealth. They had immense properties in Venice and on the mainland, due to their commercial activities.

Towards the end of the 16th century, Alvise Pisani, who belonged to the branch called “Pisani del Banco” (because they founded and owned one of the most important banks of Venice), left his home at Santa Maria del Giglio and built the enormous palace next to Campo Santo Stefano that became his home and that of his heirs; since then they became known as “Pisani di Santo Stefano”.

It was and is a splendid palace but it didn’t have a facade on the Grand Canal. So the Pisani bought the smaller and older palace belonging to the Marquis Poleni and, in 1751, they joined it to their own house so that it became a wing of Palazzo Pisani projected onto the Grand Canal.

From then onwards it was called “Palazzetto Pisani” to distinguish it from the immense one behind it. When the two buildings were joined, considerable alterations were made to the Palazzetto, so that the structure and decorations that we see today belong to the 18th century, and we have only a few reminders of the original Poleni house, the most important of which is the facade.

At the end of the second world war, the Palazzetto was reoccupied by the last descendants of the Pisani and it is till their home today.
