From 1638 the building, originally belonging to the Dandolo family, hosted the first "Ridotto Pubblico", a place to which nobility and people from all walks of life, (adventurers, courtesans, swindlers, and travelers) would retire for pleasure and intrigue. Giacomo Casanova considered this place the ideal backdrop for his conquests.
The recent restoration has managed to revive, with a contemporary feel, the atmosphere of this historic building. The Hotel Monaco has 100 rooms furnished in grand style for those who want to stay in Venice and become part of its history.
