This apartment is located in Fondamenta dei Penini, in a neighbourhood called Castello, probably one of the most peaceful districts in Venice, in the island of San Pietro. Castello (castle, in Italian) owes its name to the fortress that once protected the whole area, and refers specifically to l’Arsenale (navy yard), which helped Venice become the navy power that the city was well known for. Castello is mostly populated by genuine Venetians that seem to live a world away from the hustle and all the tourists that may be found in other parts of the city: the peace and quietness of this area is perfect for relaxing after a long day visiting this wonderful city.
San Marco, with its magnificent cathedral, is barely a 15 minute walk away along the pintoresque Riva degli Schiavoni. The headquarters of the so-called Biennale (the cinema exhibition) are also a short walk away (10 minutes on foot). Vaporetto (water bus) stops are also available nearby.
This recently renovated apartment is located on the first floor (without elevator) of a typical Venetian building overlooking the Canal Grande. The apartment is composed by a living room with a sofa, a completely equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms (with a shower each), a bedroom with two single beds and a bedroom with a Queen size bed.
The apartment includes autonomous heating, a microwave and a TV set (TV only in Italian).
