Palazzo Foscarini Elegant Apartment in Venice
Venice, Veneto - Venice, Italy
Additional Location Information
The part of the town in which Palazzo Foscarini is situated (Dorsoduro- one of the six “quarters” of Venice) is very well known and loved by Venetians and Visitors alike both for its wealth of historical monuments and attractions and for the fact that it remains a genuine “lived-in” area of the city. Furthermore, the convenience of this area to the main entry-points to the city combined with its handy access to the hub of the Grand Canal (between Rialto and the Accademia), makes this area a strategic point for those who wish to experience an authentic taste of what Venetian life really is in the heart of this city.
The Palace itself gives onto the Rio di Santa Margherita and the Campo dei Carmini - part of the famous Santa Margherita area, much frequented by Venetians and young people thanks to its numerous Cafés and open-air restaurants and its genuine vitality.
The area is also very well served in terms of facilities; Chemists, Banks, Post Office, Supermarkets and specialist shops.
From the cultural point of view, apart from the School and Church of the Carmini (works by Tiepolo,Lotto, Cima da Conegliano….) one is very close to the Cà Rezzonico museum of 18 th Century Venetian Arts, The Accademia Gallery, Palazzo Grassi, The Peggy Guggenheim Collection- and many others within a brief walking distance.
These include the Basilica of the Frari with its extraordinary Tiziano and Bellini, The School of San Rocco (Tintoretto) and The Church of San Nicolò dei Mendicoli.
It is also handy for the Rialto or Saint Mark's- either on foot or by public transport. (There are boats every 10 minutes)
