    Palazzo Bembo


    Palazzo Bembo is a sumptuous example of Venetian Gothic architecture with its strong Moorish flavor resulting from the travels of Venetian merchants to the Eastern Mediterranean. It was built by the noble Bembo family towards the end of the 14th century along the quay destined for the unloading of coal, a resource which the family itself traded.

    Lovely B&B with a great view


    This 6-room B&B is on the 4th floor of a lovely pink gothic palace. The bed- and bath-rooms are large, spotless and elegantly decorated, the mattresses are firm, the reception staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet is ample. It is right by the Rialto vaporetto stops and central for everything.

    Unique Quality: Fantastic views of grand canal and rialto bridge from room 101 and the breakfast room. View of St Marks campanile from room 106.

    Directions: Between the no. 1 and no. 82 Rialto Vaporetto stops

More about Palazzo Bembo

Campiello Santa Maria Nova.

by breughel

After browsing here through 185 reviews I saw that this Campiello (small Campo) had not been commented.
What a pleasure to finally write something about Venice that is not redundant on VT!
Better is the fact that I found info about the palace with that strange sculpture in a niche on the front.
This is the Palazzo Bembo-Boldù and the sculpture is a wild hairy god "Chronos" master of time, or Saturn wearing a sun disk.

Interesting details at P. Bembo e Boldù

by Trekki

I came across this building already on my first evening in Venezia, when I took a brief stroll around “my neighbourhood” and was much fascinated by the details I could see in the dim street lights. Next morning, with the sun shining, it looked even better. The pointed arch windows and the sculptures make a great sight, the lovely little lemon trees on the window-board add to it.
Most fascinating and definitely drawing attention is the statue on the left side: a man, holding a round plate with a sun. I didn’t find much background information, only have read that it might be Chronos who manages the time or Saturn with the sun in his hand and that it is one of the most unusual sculptures to find in the city. So if anyone has more information, I would be very much grateful.
The palazzo’s full name is Bembo e Boldù, not to be confused with Palazzo Bembo at Canal Grande (northern bank, close to Ponte Rialto).

It is easy to find – from the entrance of chiesa dei Miracoli just walk west over the little bridge until you arrive at Campiello di Santa Maria Nova. It is the building at the southwestern end of the little campo.

Run on the Grand Canal

by Fam.Rauca

The trip with the vaporetto on the Canal Grande belongs, as absolute must, to every Venice tour.
So, everyone can learn to know the city, from its best sides.
Magnificent palazzi lines the shore of Venice's famous water way, and the numerous stops offer the chance, to view in silence, the buildings, from the boat.
The French former ambasador, Philippe Commines, writed in 1495 about the Grand Canal:
“It is the most beautiful street that one can find in the whole world; it is surrounded by the most beautiful houses, and goes through the whole city.”
The Grand Canal is the main street of Venice, with a length of 3800 m, and a wideness of 30 m to 70 m.
During the years, famous noble families ordered the construction of numerous palaces, which are, at the present, the pride of Venice.
These edifices make part of the architectural history of the city.
It is a pleasure and a great experience to admire the numerous palazzi and the church, placed on the shore of the Canale Grande, when you go by vaporetto, from Railway Station Santa Lucia, the beginning of the way, to the Laguna, the end of it.
The first palace, Palazzo Diedo, is placed on the right side of the canal, in front of the Santa Lucia Station.
Then, you can admire the wonderful church San Simeone Piccolo, built in the 18th century, on the right side, and the Chiesa degli Scalzi, across the street.
The boat dives off under the Scalzi Bridge, the first bridge along the way, and then, you can see other marvellous buildings.
