Situated in the heart of Venice Antica Locanda Sturion sits on the top floor withoout elevator of an old Venetian Palace building. It’s one of the rare, small three stars oldest inns still running in venice. The view overlooking the Rialto Bridge on the Grand Canal is unique and incomparable.

The Doge himself in the XIII century made the original palace building as Locanda known for its warm hospitality reserved for guests and visitors as still today.

The emblem of the inn The Sturgeon appears in a famous painting by Vettor Carpaccio “One of the miracles of the Cross” of 1494 exposed in the Academy Galleries.
