To stay at Cà Centopietre, a palazzo dating back to the 15th century is to experience hospitality in an authentic Venetian home.  This residential palace has been lovingly restored and now offer guests comfortable accommodations in rooms decorated in traditional Venetian style.


My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cà Centopietre, tucked away in a quiet little back street in the Dorsoduro area.  Breakfast is served in a beautiful room with painted wooden ceiling and original floors (just like the floors of the Doges Palace!).


Carlo, the owner-manager, was a welcoming host and made sure we didn’t miss some of the lesser known places in the Academia area, like the shipyards where the gondolas are still made and repaired, or the decades-old ciccheteria were locals have enjoyed a glass a wine with traditional Venetian ciccheti for generations.


These little extras made our stay very special.  We felt at home in a delightful neighborhood and if we are lucky, we’ll get to stay here again.
