Palazzo Pisani Moretta was built in the second half of the 15th century by the Bembo family. In 1629, the palace became the residence of a branch of the noble Pisani family, the Pisani Morettas. The facade of the palace is an interesting example of the Venetian-Gothic style.
The ground floor has two-pointed arch portals and is surmounted by a mezzanine. The interior of the palace is decorated in Baroque and Neoclassical styles, and dates back to the 18th century. The first noble floor, organized around a porch about 24 meters long and frescoed with works by Jacopo Guarana, is made up of side rooms, two of which host works by Giambattista Tiepolo and Pietro Longhi.

The Hotel Excelsior is a majestic building on the Venice Lido shoreline. Numerous artists, including Umberto Bellotto, master of glass and wrought iron, were involved in the creation of the interior decorations.
The hotel was built in 1907 by Giovanni Sardi on behalf of the Compagnia Italiana Grandi Alberghi (CIGA). In June 1914, the Louis XVI-style Stucchi Room was completed on the first-floor terrace, and in the 1930s the International Film Festival and the opening of the Venice Casino added further value and prestige to the Excelsior Hotel.
Today, more than 100 years after that glorious opening night, the Hotel Excelsior continues to emanate, through its unique structure, the splendor of a bygone era, but with the services and amenities of a modern five-star hotel. Majestic and elegant with beautifully decorated white arches and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the sea, the ballroom known as the Sala degli Stucchi is now a renowned and coveted location for private events and can accommodate up to 400 guests at the table.
