Quick description

No hotel photo available Originally the home of the famous composer Antonio Vivaldi, this ancient building is ideally located in front of the lagoon and only few steps from St. Mark's Square.

Locanda Vivaldi Hotel is just on the right of the conservatory Ospedale della Pietà, where a lot of Vivaldi?s compositions, including The Four Seasons, were first performed. The hotel has been renovated to create a modern and intimate establishment, offering excellent facilities.

The hotel's small restaurant is on the rooftop terrace, overlooking Saint Mark's Basin. The cuisine is based on fish specialities. It is exclusively for Locanda Vivaldi's guests.

Hotel information
Hotel Locanda Vivaldi was inaugurated at the end of 1999, after painstaking and long restructuring works on the building adjacent to the Church of Pietà.

In 1703, Antonio Vivaldi was ordained a priest and started to work as a violin teacher in the Pietà conservatory, where he remained until 1740.

After only 6 months of priesthood, Vivaldi no longer wished to celebrate mass. He was nicknamed the Red Priest and Goldoni explained that he was so-called because of his fire-red hair. According to other sources, this name was given to him because of his permanence at the Pietà Institute, where the 'daughters' of this hospice, his pupils, used to wear a scarlet colour.
Room information
The rooms are decorated following the rules of the Venetian style and tradition. Precious wall fabrics, curtains and drapes, oriental carpets, stuccos, gildings, Murano glass and vases, chandeliers and appliqués created by glassblowing Venetian masters, enrich the rooms. Modern amenities make them even more welcoming.

Superior rooms overlook the lagoon; standard rooms overlook a small canal or the courtyard.
