Palazzetto da Schio is a 16th century Venetian private house, located on a wide, sunny canal in one of the best neighborhoods of Venice. It is still owned and inhabited by the da Schio family, who has made it available to visitors. The apartments have all been recently restored. They are very comfortable to live in: equipped with modern appliances and furnished with family antiques. The view is over a sunny canal, or over a charming and quiet garden. Public transportation is close, and water taxis can come right up to the house.  Internet WiFi connection is free in all apartments. There is an electric hoist for the luggage that serves the top floor.
