Glam, Palazzo Venart (VE) — Veneto Secrets

Opened in September 2016, Palazzo Venart is one of the dreamy 5-star residences overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice. The small boutique hotel, housed in a lavish sixteenth-century building, was recently purchased and then finely restored by Taiwanese LDC Group, a leading company within the luxury hospitality business.

The hotel includes Glam, the gourmet restaurant founded by the Michelin-starred chefs Enrico Bartolini and led by Donato Ascani where you can taste his delicious signature dishes in an elegant, yet relaxed atmosphere.

In summer, enjoy the generous tasting menu in the garden facing the Grand Canal, in winter enjoy lunch in the cosy orangerie.

The Secret

The palace was destroyed by fire at the end of the nineteenth century and immediately rebuilt by adding the garden facing the Grand Canal that was not present in the original plan. On the first floor, at the entrance to the “Marco Polo” room, you can still see the date, 1888, set in the precious Venetian floor, which testifies to the year in which the building was rebuilt; a curious coincidence given that in Chinese numerology 888 has the meaning of triple luck.
