Palazzo Pisani Moretta

Palazzo Pisani Moretta is a palace situated along the Grand Canal in Venice, betweenPalazzo Barbarigo della Terrazza and Palazzo Tiepolo. Built in the second half of the 15th Century by the Bembo family, the palace soon became the residence of a branch of the noble Pisani family (the Pisani Moretta branch). The palace was renovated, modified and extended over the following centuries, finally taking on its current aspect in the 18th Century. In fact many of the valuable interior decorations date back to the 18th Century. Past guests to the palace included important historic figures such as Tsar Paul I of Russia, Joséphine de Beauharnais and Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor.
