Aurora Piano Nobile Grand Canal

An exceptionally luxurious Piano Nobile with stunning views

The White Palazzo Grand Canal San Marco

This quite stunning 16th century Grand Canal palazzo was the residence over several centuries of a very prominent Venetian family, and retains its original ornate interiors and grandeur. Recently fully restored to the highest level, it has beautiful luxe furnishings, exceptional kitchen and bathroom installations, and all new infrastructure in terms of heating and air conditioning. 

Now an extensive private home, with over 5000 sq.feet of living space in the main Aurora apartment alone, it has both a monumental main entrance and its own private water entrance with boat jetty for direct water arrival. 


The lead Aurora Piano Nobile apartment spans over the two piano nobile floors (first and second), connecting internally by both a monumental staircase as well as a private elevator. Aurora is free on all three sides giving it an exceptionally light and airy feel, with many windows giving both front and side views of the Grand Canal.

On the first floor are the main living and reception areas, with stunning main salone ending in huge Quadrifora gothic windows and balcony overlooking the Grand Canal. This floor incorporates a vast professional kitchen, large dining room for up to 22 guests, a stunning porego (ballroom) salone, second living room, studio and two guest bathrooms - an incredible space for private family groups as well as entertaining in the grand manner.


This floor, connected internally to the primo by a beautiful contemporary marble staircase, has a second central portego salone and five stunning bedrooms with luxurious bedding and linens, bespoke cupboards and cabinets, all en suite with divine luxury bathrooms, each one in a different exquisite marble and colour co-ordinated with its bedroom. Truly adorable. 

The Aurora Piano Nobile apartment could in our opinion be described as one of the most luxurious residences on the Grand Canal in terms of style, functionality and outright glamour.

Ann-Marie's comment: This divine property speaks for itself - a new departure for private palazzo homes in Venice where no detail has been overlooked by its visionary owners. We are delighted to represent such a wonderful property.

This is one of the apartments in The White Palazzo Grand Canal.

San Marco

This is the historical centre of the town with Piazza San Marco at its very heart and with Venice’s most coveted museums: Palazzo Ducale and Museo Correr. The buildings in this area of town are all on a fabulously grand scale. You will find most of the designer shops and luxury brands around here, including a number of fine jewellers and designers hidden among the colonnades of the piazza itself. The best time to visit is in the evening when the sun sets over the curved domes of St. Mark’s Basilica and live music sweeps across the piazza, defined by Napoleon as the “finest drawing room in Europe”.

Ideally located on the Grand Canal between San Marco Square and the Rialto Bridge, this masterpiece of Venetian architecture dating from the middle of the 15th century has endured through the ages, housing the Garzoni family from Bologna in the 17th century and more recently an art school. It has a direct access by boat with pontoon in front of the palazzo and an elevator is connecting the entire palace.
