The arrangements went absolutely to plan. As agreed Rosa met us off the San Stae pier direct from the airport, took us to the apartment and explained everything we needed to know, including lots of local knowledge on places to visit, restaurants, shops etc..With written explanations, maps and so on provided.
The apartment is comfortable, spotlessly clean and a lovely combination of traditional and modern design, and equipped with everything needed for a short stay. We really enjoyed our time there, though spent much of each day exploring Venice. It is noted the apartment is on the second floor , so a bit of a climb coming and going.
The apartment is in a quiet area just over 5 minutes from the Grand Canal and the Rialto area. It is a delight to explore - there is so much to see and everything so near by. But a good detailed map is essential for navigating some of the tiny alleyways. The whole area is littered with cafes and restaurants, so plenty of choice.
The city is an absolute wonder. We saw many galleries and museums, and learned a lot about the history of Venice, and Italy. We also took a multi-day pass for the water taxis. Well worth it as it got us out to the northern islands and up and down the Grand Canal. For us the 'must-sees' include
The Guggenheim, The Doges Palace, the Correr Museum and St Mark's Basilica, plus all the squares and sights from the canal bridges etc..
If you like the idea of living Venice as a local, this cosy and comfortable apartment will be the right choice. It is situated in the very heart of Venice and located in a quiet 'calle', just a short walk from the Rialto Bridge and its vivacious marketplace and ten minutes far from St Mark's. It offers an excellent base for walking and losing yourself in the maze of narrow 'calli', courtyards and 'campi', discovering many secrets of this town, carrying with you, if you like, our own suggestions and advice.
A few steps from the apartment you can visit Ca' Pesaro (International Gallery of Modern Art), Mocenigo Palace (Center of Studies on the History of Textiles and Costumes), and the Museum of Natural History. For you leisure it will be impossible to miss the plenty of artisanal shops and for your pleisure the wide choice of restaurants, 'bacari', pizzerie, wineshops, bakeries, groceries and supermarkets.
You will find everything you need to spend a wonderful holiday in our town.
