Once the grand home of Canaletto, arguably Venice’s most famous landscape painter in the 1700s, the Canaletto Suites comprise five exclusive apartments overlooking the iconic Saint Mark’s Square in Italy.
All suites are served by expert staff who enhance every stay. Housed in the same building that hosts the piazza’s famous clock tower, and just steps away from the sparkling basin, the property is both conveniently located and steeped in history. It’s represented by My Private Villas, a luxury property owner club with spectacular estates all over Europe—assuring the highest quality of experiences.

Key selling points: The one-bedroom suites boast magnificent terraces with sweeping views—perfect for a romantic dinner over one of Europe’s dreamiest hubs.
