This was something we had wanted to do for some time. We have stayed in several 'residenze d'epoca' in Italy, including a stay in a beautiful palazzo in Umbria. This holiday we were in the Veneto and researched several places along the Brenta Canal, but this was the one that stole our heart. We were so glad they had a room for us in this stunning historic building with frescos on the walls and real Murano chandeliers. Our huge room was on the first floor. To be truthful there was some noise from the main road along the road leading to Venice, but we had known about that before we booked and took along our ear plugs which solved that problem. Breakfast was really plentiful served with a smile.
We were there on a Tuesday when the hotel restaurant was closed, but the lovely receptionist recommended two restaurants along the main road from the hotel. We can't recommend the Re dei Quadri highly enough. Modern Italian decor and cuisine.
