The Palazzo Alvera Altana is a private home enjoyed by the owners for getaways to Venice. Guest will get to move about like movie stars in a Venetian taxi that leaves from and returns to the villa’s private pier. Private gallery openings to meet selected glass artists, early morning market tours and a hands-on cooking class offer your party the opportunity to understand the culture and history of the Lagoon.


Villa Astor on the Amalfi Coast features the views, setting, amenities and activities that have made the area one of Italy’s iconic vacation destinations. At Villa Astor, guests will enjoy gourmet meals by the chef from Don Alfonso, candlelight swims in their private grotto, and a chance to make their own Neapolitan pizza.
