The Palazzo overlooks the Grand Canal and is located a minute’s walk to the connecting Rialto Bridge, which sends travelers straight to Saint Mark square.   The palazzo is in the heart of the historic city’s cultural and artistic sites that are symbols of the city, such as the Teatro La Fenice, Palazzo Grassi, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and the Accademia Museum.

Built around the second half of the fifteenth century, Palazzo Garzoni Moro in Venice was originally the private abode of a wealthy family of merchants, then (during the seventeenth century) became property of the Garzoni, one of the most illustrious families in Venice, who lived in the palace for centuries. In 1725, renowned Venetian artist Tintoretto painted one of his masterpieces the Grand Canal: Looking Northeast which is located near the Palazzo Corner Spinelli to the Rialto Bridge.

Surrounded by breathtaking frescoed ceilings, Palazzo Garzoni Moro is refurbished into contemporary apartments with innovative design elements such as home automation, thermal and acoustic insulation, climate control and features a private elevator, that makes for a luxurious and technological abode. Here is a peak inside the new project by Gruppo Motterle.
