About Ca'Sagredo Hotel Venezia
A Private Palazzo, a Noble Residence, a Museum, a Luxury Hotel and much more… this is Ca’ Sagredo.
The sheer beauty of Ca’ Sagredo Hotel is weep-with-joy wondrous. As you pull up alongside the Grand Canal, you’ll need to pinch yourself and again when you step inside.
The 15th century Palace has been declared a National Monument and still preserves the untouched beauty of an ancient noble Residence. It oozes romance while the opulently frescoed ballroom and lounge echoes with epic events of the past. Just gliding up the imposing marble staircase; whilst resisting a tap on a cherub’s peachy cheek, feels positively regal. Ca’ Sagredo’s views of the canal life and the historical Rialto Market opposite are storybook scenes of old. The hotel’s 42 magnificently appointed rooms and suites are a seriously suggestive sight to behold with classic Venetian styling.
Art lovers be warned: there are so many treasures here, it’s easy to forget the outside world. But there’s always the hotel’s panoramic waterside L’Alcova restaurant with terrace over the Grand Canal to remind you, serving dishes that are a celebration of Italy on a plate.
This magical location has inspired our Chef’s approach: the absolute protagonist is a cuisine made of fresh ingredients and characterized by a strong “Back to Nature” concept. Local delicacies are enhanced in his menus through the daily attentive personal selection from the Rialto Market: a “Natural Flavours Philosophy” providing a fresh twist on the authentic Venetian cuisine.
His vision can be savored on his refined plates, characterized by rich tastes and great personality.

Venice Christmas Market
Sponsored by the Artisan Association, the market features Christmas ornaments and decorations of Murano glass, traditional carnival masks, ceramics, jewelry, marbled paper and other Venetian craft specialties.
Murano glass is also used in jewelry, alone or worked into designs with silver and gold. Carnival masks can be as simple as the red, gold and black eye masks or elaborate creations from the studios of all the town.
One section of the Campo San Stefano market is devoted to Italian specialty foods – traditional cakes and sweets, fine olive oils, vintage balsamic vinegars and other locally made gourmet products fill the booths. Look for creamy white almond-studded nougat, fruit-filled panetone from nearby Verona, bags of specialty pastas, tiny biscotti, dried porcini mushrooms, candied chestnuts and delicacies made with precious white truffles from Alba.
The market’s festive atmosphere is heightened by musicians, concerts and entertainment, with some programs designed especially for children. Along with a shopping venue, the Christmas Market is a gathering place where Venetians and travelers mingle. Located in the Sestiere of Dorsoduro, the square adjoins the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, not far from Gallerie dell’Accademia, and is an easy walk from San Marco via the Accademia Bridge across the Grand Canal.
Christmas Market Opening Date: 3rd December – 24th December
