The Allure of the Mysterious East

  • It's not by accident that Marco Polo was a Venetian. The "Orient" has always had a magnetic attraction for La Serenissima. One of the most intriguing aspects of this relationship is the enduring fascination and mystery that the East has exercised on Venice throughout the centuries despite - or may be because of - the many trips made eastward by the city's merchants.
  • This private walking tour covers a host of Eastern-influenced architecture including Moorish arches, Greek crosses and sculptures with exotic themes. Cornerstone of the tour are two spectacular palaces. The first, Palazzo Corner Spinelli on the Grand Canal, was once the home of a distinguished family of merchants and is now the site of the Lorenzo Rubelli atelier. This renowned fabrics and textiles company was founded in Venice in 1835, and its showroom features a permanent collection of antique textiles dating from the 15th-century, alongside a wide selection of modern fabrics. It is a potent visual map of the influence that Eastern cultures had on Venice, and is evidence of the level of sophistication reached by this "East-West fusion."
  • Next stop is Palazzo Pesaro, a three-story Gothic palace in the district of San Marco. Spanish painter and eclectic artist Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo moved here in 1899, making it his workshop and home. Now a museum, the palazzo still has its original furnishings including paintings, engravings, a collection of Fortuny dresses, carved wooden furniture, Murano glass, silk chandeliers and a series of hand-printed fabrics.
  • As optional final stop is the famous Caffe' Florian where, for an additional fee, clients will be able to enjoy a tasting cup of hot chocolate with Venetian baicoli cookies, together with an exotic coffee drink of their choice. The tasting will take place at an outside table in Piazza San Marco, in sight of the imposing Oriental domes of St. Mark's basilica.
Sites Included:
  • Palazzo Corner Spinelli
  • Lorenzo Rubelli atelier
