Combining the historic charm of a 16 th century palazzo with innovative and quirky design features, the Hotel Heureka is the ideal destination for lovers of opulent interiors who are searching for the chance to feel like royalty for a weekend (or even longer!).


The property itself is surrounded by charming canals (you are recommended to arrive by water taxi if travelling with a lot of luggage!) and is situated in the north-western Sestiere of Cannaregio – one of Venice’s liveliest districts. So, as a guest at the Heureka, you have a multitude of exciting sights right on your doorstep.


From the oldest Jewish ghetto in the world to the Church and Great School of Santa Maria della Misericordia, the churches of the Madonna dell’Orto (with masterpieces by Tintoretto) to a plethora of quaint trattorias and taverns where you can sample delicious local delicacies, there’s plenty to explore in this buzzing neighbourhood, safe in the knowledge you’re just a short walk away from the tranquil oasis of the Heureuka, where you can take a bubble bath in one of the hotel’s plush, perfectly appointed bathrooms, and sip aperitivi under the stars in the intimate walled garden.


The most sort after suite in the entire hotel is the Heureka suite, which with a maximum number of 6 guests, is the perfect place to treat the whole family to a palatial Venetian holiday.


Only available on request, this grandiose series of rooms overlooks the the quiet canal of the Madonna dell’Orto, and is filled with quintessential Venetian design features including a Murano glass chandelier, fine fabrics and hand made furniture.


Or, if you’re looking for something smaller, for a more intimate visit to Venice, why not book into one of Heureka’s Deluxe rooms, which the hotels states proudly are decorated with “a dash of eccentricity.”


They’re also renowned for their refined and sumptuous bathrooms, so they are the perfect place to indulge in a decadent bubble bath after a long day exploring the city.


Whilst Heuraka doesn’t have its own restaurant, quick meals are available from the bar, including snacks and seasonal salads. Pair these light bites with one of the many options from the drinks menu – of course including the traditional Venetian aperitif, Aperol Spritz - which the bartender will help you navigate with their expert knowledge.


The hotel has direct access to the canal for boats and watertaxi, but it is also the ideal starting point for walks in the Cannaregio district, a few steps from the oldest Ghetto in the world and with famous churches such as Santa Maria della Misericordia and the Madonna dell 'Orto, both displaying the masterpieces of Tintoretto.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to more
