A charm Guest House, the bed & breakfast Locanda la Corte enjoys an enchanting location in the tradition of the most genuine Guest Houses.
The Locanda La Corte is located in Calle Bressana, in the "sestiere" or quarter of Castello, just a stone's throw from Campo SS. Giovanni e Paolo, in the heart of the old city of Venice, in an exceptionally quiet area that is easily reached on foot from St. Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge.
The inn is near some of the most important sites of Venetian art, including the Church of Saints Peter and Paul, the largest Gothic church in the city, which was erected between the 12th and 14th centuries, the church of Santa Maria Formosa of 1492 with its Baroque bell tower, completed in 1688, and the Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli, a masterpiece made of polychrome marble which was erected some time between 1481 and 1489 by the Lombardos. From here you can also reach some of the oldest parts of the city such as the island of San Pietro di Castello with its church that was the cathedral of Venice up to 1807, the year in which St. Mark's Basilica went from being the private chapel of the Doge to the city cathedral; and the entire Castello quarter, the area that is most populated by Venetians.
Are you looking for a relaxing vacation? The Locanda la Corte is the Guest House for you: here you can recline in its typical Venetian garden, sip a drink, and savor the tranquility of being in the heart of Venice but removed from the hustle and bustle. It is also perfect if you are looking to spend a romantic holiday, your honeymoon, an anniversary, or even your wedding!
