An exquisite blend of traditional Venetian craftsmanship in modern design complete with every amenity and comfort,
Palazzo Morosini Degli Spezieri is the perfect home away from home in Venice.
History & Flavor: The palazzo is home to nine apartments, each named after a different spice.
The suffix “degli Spezieri” (Spezieri = Spices) was added to better qualify the palace where, during the most glorious time of the Morosini dynasty – which was that of the discovery of the Spice Route – merchants commerced in spices bought in the East and dispatched from Venice across Europe. Evidenced by the name of the adjacent street ‘Calle degli Spezieri’ the traders of this exotic and precious merchandise probably worked on the ground floor. For more of the history of this beautiful location reference the Palazzo Morosini Degli Spezieri website.
A glimpse inside:
room with a view…
This beautiful bedroom occupies a spacious corner of the two bed, two bath Zenzero apartment, with canal views on dual sides and a private balcony overlooking the garden. Even the TV masquerades as a mirror, keeping in tune with the romantic simplicity.
The high ceilings with incredible natural wood exposed beams tie in the authentic flavor of the palazzo’s rich history. Local craftsmanship and Murano Glass are featured with impeccable taste in the decor.
The spacial common areas of the Zenzero are complete with every convenience, such as surround sound that links up to your smart phone, in-apartment laundry, and smart lighting. Meanwhile large windows let in incredible views so that you don’t even have to leave your apartment to experience the beauty that is Venice.
A full size kitchen, dining for eight and a private sun terrace are among the accommodations that make the Palazzo’s unique apartments incomparable.
The 2 bed, 2 bath Coriandolo apartment pulls cool blue hues from the canals into it’s decor. The expansive bedroom shown below stays flooded with natural light and situated so as to offer exquisite corner views.
The bustling piazza and canal with vibrant colors and textures unique to Venice meet the understated luxury and clean lines within the Coriandolo’s open flowing floorpan as large windows bring the view practically inside the room.
We love how the decor is delightfully and seamlessly integrated into the architectural details that naturally sculpt the space.
An Airy Escape…
The one bed one bath Cayenna apartment wraps generously around the Palazzo’s private courtyard below and boasts it’s own private terrace. Rich tones and a contrast of textures play artfully, making this intimate space at once cozy and cool.
A canopy bed in crisp summer whites faces the sun terrace, pulling off the romanticism of sheer simplicity.
This apartment provides every convenience with large closets, surround sound, smart controls for lights, a full kitchenette that can be hidden away, etc… Everything is accentuated by natural light spilling generously onto every surface.

After unpacking we set out for the evening. We’d asked for some dinner recommendations and although keen to explore the neighborhood if truth be told we were already looking forward to coming back, relaxing with some Prosecco and indulging in long hot showers before falling into deep cushions and crisp beds.
Palazzo Morosini Degli Spezieri flavors the venetian experience with it’s own brand of luxurious hospitality.
