Destination: Italy: Venice
Ca’ Pisani Hotel
Off the beaten track, in the Dorsoduro neighborhood along the Rio Terà Foscarini, this small design hotel was originally a palazzo built by Venetian nobility in the late 14th century. Modified over the years, it was completely overhauled in 2000 by architect Roberto Canovaro. While Canovaro scrupulously retained the original architectural elements, has let his imagination take hold in the interior design. His point of reference was the period between the world wars, when sleek Art Deco ruled. The lobby is a study in futurism, while the palette has been kept soft with the occasional cherry-red accent. Rooms from $480.
