The Palazzo has been constructed in the late XVIth century by the Contarini family who built it in late renaissance style. In the same family since the last 3 generations, this property used to be the house of the ambassador of Luxembourg in Washington for almost 20 years, and his venitian wife. Before working in Washington, he lived in many places around the globe, but most importantly in Tokyo for 20 years where he collected oriental art. In fact, when he retired In Venice, part of his collection became a little private museum named Cà del Duca, museum of Oriental art.
Besides that, and most importantly for you, he also restored and decorated his home, Palazzo Contarini Michiel with his oriental artifacts, making it a perfect place to host all his foreign friends thanks to its welcoming and uniquely eclectic atmosphere.
Today, our goal is to maintain this spirit as much as possible.Property Views
