In an atmosphere of ancient times, at our center you can find location for meetings concerning culture and hospitality inside an old monastery, restored and equipped with the latest technology. The Centre accommodates groups, individuals and families, and offers the opportunity to stay in a private and quiet place in the city centre of Venice, behind Gallerie dell’Accademia with direct overview on the Zattere quayside and on Giudecca Canal.
The entire building develops around three cloisters of 18th century and one cloister of 15th century near our Church of Santa Maria della Visitazione. Thanks to its vastness, its architecture, its gardens, its silence, our Center is an oasis inside the town: here even the rooms tell and create an atmosphere, by raising emotions.
Will let you discover all the magic atmospheres,
the incredible artistic heritage
of the Cultural Center Don Orione Artigianelli
and the magic in Venice.

Travelling is a pleasure already dreamed and "arriving at each new city, the traveler finds again a past of his that he did not know he had: the foreignness of what you no longer are or no longer possess lies in wait for you in foreign, unpossessed places.” (Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities)
Imagining a trip to Venice, getting lost in the alleys and enjoying the view of sunsets or the feeling of the water in the canals, all these are sensations that you can see in your mind but that you can experience only on site: follow the sustainable itineraries away from the tourist paths to discover unusual glimpses of the city or following the cultural routes to discover the heritage in the city districts. Others will imagine themselves wearing a mask in the Carnival of Venice, but in any case there are experience, sensations, emotions that you can live only here, related to the events of a city that is different and unique. Discover Venice and its silence, the sound of your footsteps, the bitter cold in the foggy days; in the limpid ones you can even see an incredible mountain view from the lagoon. You can do it, respecting the city and living it in harmony with the daily life of Venetians.
We wish you a wonderful 2018 full of happy and safe travels!From "DeTourism"
