One of the most visited Italian cities is Venice, which receives hundreds of thousands of tourists each year who want to fall in love with the charms of the city of canals. It is clear that a gondola ride on a canal is the most interesting thing you can do there and what has made the city more famous, but there are many more things that you can see and do and that are equally spectacular. Among the attractions of Venice is the Mocenigo Palace, a true marvel of architecture.
This palace is in the Santa Cruz district, right next to the Great channel, with which you will pass by there yes or yes when taking a walk through the city. Exactly, it is between the Rialto Bridge and Saint Mark's Square. It was the official residence of the Mocenigo family from the 17th century to the middle of the 20th century. This family is one of the most important in the history of the city since it has contributed 7 Venetian governors in almost 400 years.
As soon as you enter, you will be captivated by playground that welcomes you, with a garden in a purely Italian style that blends perfectly with the Gothic style of the building. The palace is used to hold numerous public and private events, and many people choose it as the place to celebrate their wedding or the christening or communion of their children. Almost 150 people can be accommodated in the hall that is used for events.
The palace has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and its decoration is with antique furniture, a fantastic opportunity to discover what the Venetian lifestyle was like centuries ago. The main bedroom has 3 balconies, all of them with views of the Grand Canal. Next door is a house where you can stay and that envelops you in all the magic that Venetian history can offer you, with views of the interior of the palace and the Grand Canal.
