FORMOSA APARTMENT FOR A ROMANTIC HOLIDAY IN THE HEART OF LEGENDARY VENICE

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in San Marco - Formosa Apartment

Amazing central location.1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, living room, air conditioning.

Lovely and cosy Formosa apartment is just 5 min walking distance from S. Marco's Square and the Rialto Bridge. It' s located just few steps from Santa Maria Formosa one of the most characteristic place in Venice. It's on the second floor, without lift, of a typical Venetian building. Recently restored the apartment, of about 50 m², consists in a large open space with kitchen and living (with high wood beaming ceiling), satellite TV and double sofa bed. Kitchen is furnished with fridge and freezer, gas stove, microwave, dishwasher. The main bedroom has a King size bed, large wardrobe. Bathroom with bathtub and washing machine. Very original and prestigious ceilings represented by a truss structure. Parquet floor. Air conditioning, fan and cradle available on request. All the rooms are very bright as lighted up by several windows. Supermarket, shops, restaurants, bars, pubs, just nearby.

Shopping: We are just around the corner from a Venetian supermarket, less than 1 min walk away. Shopping for food couldn't be easier. If you like fresh food go to the very famous Rialto mercato a daily food market (no Sunday) crammed with just fished fish, fresh fruit and vegetables just off Rialto bridge. Nearby the apartment there are various other small food outlets scattered around where you can buy meats, cheese, bread, etc. This will be a more interesting although challenging shopping experience than the supermarket. You will find many top brand shops antique and gift shops.

How to Arrive: BY PLANE.

How to get to the Rialto Bridge from the railway station 'Venice Santa Lucia': take the line 2 of the public water bus (we call it “vaporetto”) and get off at Rialto (about 12 minutes).

ARRIVING BY CRUISE:

How to get to the Rialto Bridge from the cruise terminal: if you cannot directly take the line number 2 from the cruise terminal take the shuttle or people mover to Piazzale Roma. From Piazzale Roma take the line 2 of the public water bus (called “vaporetto”) and get off at Rialto (about 12 minutes)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Despite the rain, we had a great time in Venise (it was our 2nd time) and the Apartment Formosa was just PERFECT: it was centrally located, comfortable (once we figured out the boiler), it had everything we needed and Gloria was always available when we needed..

I would not hesitate to recommend it to my friends

thank you for everything

A comfortable apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Formosa Apartment. All the arrangements went smoothly from start to finish, and the apartment itself was comfortable, clean and well-equipped. As described, it is on the second floor, so be prepared for the stairs! The interior is pleasant, and perfectly adequate as a great base from which to explore Venice. There is a supermarket just around the corner, and a wide variety of shops in the neighbourhood. Although only 10 minutes walk from St Mark's Square, it is easy to escape the crowds here. Campo Santa Maria Formosa is an ideal spot to have a drink, relax and watch the world go by.
We would be very happy to stay here again when we next come to Venice.

Very spacious and great location

  • 5 out of 5
The property is located just a very short walk from the Grand Canal and in the heart of a bustling area. Many nice restaurants and markets within a 2 min walk also only 10 mins walk to the main square of Venice. The apartment is nice and spacious with a large double bed, cooking/washing facilities etc.We also received a welcome meet with the rep as we arrived off the boat which was nice. I would recommend this apartment and for the money and location was excellent value!

Lovely, well equipped and well located appartment

  • 4 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay here. Good advice and information before we arrived. Easy check in by local agency staff. The apartment was clean and well laid out with a comfortable bed. Kitchen equipment was limited but we mainly ate out in excellent local restaurants. The Apartment is within easy walking distance of many of Venice's best tourist sights. Highly recommended.

Great location, comfortable, clean and convenient!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was in a great location off a main route to the Rialto Bridge and San Marco - both about a ten minute walk away ( provided you don't get lost but that was part of the fun!)
The rooms were clean and well presented and look just like the photos on the website.
The bed was big and comfortable and the kitchen well equipped with everything you might need. The bathroom was good and our only slight gripe was the shower. Water pressure wasn't great and maintaining a good temperature was a challenge at times with it fluctuating from very hot to cold!
Other than that we had a perfect stay and would definitely recommend the apartment for any couple wanting a reasonably priced stay in a great location near to the main sights plus a handy supermarket just 50m away.

Formosa Apartment is very centrally located, in the true heart of Venice, for a comfortable stay nearby the most interesting points of Venice: S.Marco's Square and Rialto Bridge are just about 5 min walking distance from Formosa Apartment. Few steps away from the lively Santa Maria Formosa Square, well known for its outdoor bars, pubs and restaurants, and the Salisada San Lio for shopping. From the Formosa apartment, you really will be able to enjoy Venice the legendary lagoon city, full of history and with an immense cultural and artistic heritage.

The typical 'palazzi', the canals and the gondolas create a suggestive atmosphere that you can find only in few other places in the world.
