Venice continues to be one of the most sought-after locations for luxury real estate and makes an easy choice on where to live in Italy. Home buyers compete for apartments in one of the prestigious Venetian Gothic palaces which line the Grand Canal. The neighbourhoods to consider when looking for a luxury home in Venice include serene Dorsoduro and history-rich San Polo. Dorsoduro offers a tranquil vibe with the Accademia and Guggenheim museums while San Polo is rich in history with its antique shops, as well as Santa Croce and some areas of Cannaregio. Further inland take a look at the luxury estates and Palladian villas along the Riviera del Brenta.
