Palazzo Malipiero is a palace in Venice, Italy. It is located on the Grand Canal in the central Campo San Samuele. It stands just across from Palazzo Grassi Exhibition Center. The adjacent Italian-style garden with a view on the Grand Canal, a rarity in Venice, makes it even more distinctive. Initially built in a Byzantine style, over the centuries it has undergone some modifications.HistoryThe Ca' Grande of Saint Samuel was probably built at the beginning of the 11th century by Soranzo family, which also built in that period, together with the Boldù family, the church of San Samuele facing the land-facade of the Palace. In the 13th century a third floor was added.In the early days of the 15th century the Cappello family, one of the most energetic and industrious families of Venice, became owners of the Palace as a result of marriages with the Soranzos. The Cappello family used the palace's storehouses to house the newly discovered printing and publishing activity. In the mid-16th century this family enlarged the building and modified the Grand Canal facade to its present shape.Around 1590 the Malipiero family became tenants of the Cappellos and Caterino Malipiero, within few years as from 1610, through the marriage with Elisabetta Cappello and further purchases, became owners of the whole edifice. Evidence of the very many restorations done by him are the date 1622 and the initials K.M. - for Caterino Malipiero- in an engraving placed over on the main door he built, giving access to the new large entrance of the Palace.

  • Beautiful property in great location, Venetian-style palace with large rooms and beautiful canal and square views but the extra value from the extremely friendly and courteous staff available to meet every request and for the birthday reserved us a pleasant surprise by serving us for breakfast a cake with candles for the festivities. Highly recommended hotels

  • Riding on the canals on a gondola, we passed in the area of Castello, it is next to the Church of St. Mary the Beautiful (Parrochia Santa Maria Formosa). Here between the two bridges saw on the house a red poster with the inscription - Palazzo Malipiero. But according to the venice address and guide to Venice, this palace is located in a very different location, on the Grand Canal, near the Church of San Samuele, opposite the Palazzo Grassi Exhibition Centre, on Campo San Samuele. And the one that is posted on the photos and which we saw firsthand is on - Rio di Santa Maria Formosa and goes by the name - Palazzo Malipiero Trevisan. We'll have to add a new venice attraction to the trip site!
