General background and description
Descrizione Generale

The Palace was built by the Foscarini family and remained in their possession until the fall of the Republic.
As members of the Venetian Nobility, they are particularly remembered for having provided the city with one of the last important Doges- who was also a noted man of letters.
It is situated on the Canale Santa Margherita and faces the beautiful façade of the Church of Santa Maria dei Carmini.
Today, it still boasts a number of remarkable artistic and architectural features which bear witness to its noteworthy history; these can be found both on the exterior of the building and within the individual apartments.
The Palazzo Foscarini apartment is reached via a charming internal courtyard and grand archway. One side looks onto the park, whilst the other looks onto the small orchard gardens of surrounding buildings.
An elegant little building known as the “Foscarini Library” provides a delightful back-drop to this famous park. It was built by the Doge-Scholar in the middle of the 18 th Century at the time of the last important enlargement and restoration of the palace.

The apartment itself
Descrizione Generale

The CORTE FOSCARINI apartment, freshly restored in 2015, is located on the 2nd floor of the amazing Palazzo Foscarini, an historical site built in the XVI century. Dorsoduro is the central and dynamic neighborhood in which it stands, well serviced by public transportation, near all the major Venetian sites
You enter the CORTE FOSCARINI by a scenographic helical historical staircase.
It is very luminous as the many windows overlook the spacious inside courtyard with its antique well on one side and on the other it has the view of the secondary facade of Palazzo Foscarini.
Corte Foscarini is elegantly furnished and it consists of:
- an open space are: living room (with daybed), dining area and a completely accessorized kitchenette
- a specious bathroom with shower, hairdryer and washing machine
- a master bedroom
Our main goal, when decorating and organizing the apartment, was that it be comfortable, pleasant and rational for an up to date life style while keeping the essence of the Venetian tradition; it is a great mix!

The Area
Descrizione Generale

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)
