Oltre il Giardino

Last updated: 23 December, 2023

This delightful little guesthouse (once home to composer Gustav Mahler’s widow) feels more like a private country retreat than a city hotel thanks to its wonderful shady canal-side garden hidden behind a high, creeper-clad wall.

Located down a narrow alleyway close to the art-filled Frari church, it is a 10-minute walk from the Rialto Bridge but feels worlds away from the crowds. You’ll wake to the sound of church bells, the smell of baking croissants, and breakfast under the magnolia trees in summer.

The Venetian owner and his staff welcome guests (an independent, artsy crowd) into their home which is modern and stylish yet comfortable with lots of thoughtful details such as fresh flowers and books to read.
