“This fine 16th-century palazzo in atmospheric Cannaregio was the home of its owner, Marisa Rossi, who continues to create the feel of a grand house party amongst her guests. The splendid stuccoed and frescoed rooms are furnished with antiques, silks and Murano glass, while a magnificent first floor salone is reached by a rare (for Venice) double staircase, and a secret walled garden lies outside. The real thing.”

"With its beautiful heirloom antiques and frescoed ceilings, Palazzo Abadessa is every inch the aristocratic family palace."
