We loved every minute and would highly recommend the apartment .

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Located in Cannaregio nr Campo of Sts. Giovanni and Paulo. We took a private transfer from the airport arranged by the letting agents - a car to Piazzale Roma then water taxi down the Grand Canal and along the small canals to very near our apartment where we were met by a representative - a great way to arrive. Going home we easily walked (10-15 mins with luggage) to Fondamente Nova for the alilaguna. There are two bridges to get to the stop that serves the airport beyond the ticket office - or go to the Ospedale stop (one bridge) where there isn't a ticket office. From Fondamente Nova you can get the vaporettos to the islands, the Lido and all other destinations - some may mean a change - not a problem if you have a 24/48 or weekly ticket. The area has a feel of the real Venice about it but is only a 15 minute stroll to the Rialto Bridge and other tourist sights. The apartment is down a narrow lane behind wrought iron gate for which you have a key, through a garden (which is not for your use) and up an easy flight of stairs. It feels safe and secure. For 2 people the flat is quite spacious with a sofa bed for another 2. I didn't find the bed hard as some reviewers had suggested and slept very well. We shut the shutters to make it dark and it was very quiet. Light sleepers may notice locals going to work on the canal in the morning but this isn't a problem and there is no traffic noise as no cars! There is plenty of hot water from the boiler and a good shower over the bath. The ability to have a soak in the bath is most welcome after a long day. Some reviewers have said that the apartment is a little worn and there are a few small things that a handyman and the cleaner could do that would make all the difference to people's perception. Two dining chairs had the stuffing knocked out of them & were stained, the shutters didn't secure open & would close themselves when there was a small breeze up the canal, the kitchen looked like it had been stocked with odds and ends some of which could have done with a clean as did areas like under the bed (I had dropped something that rolled under there). We were told we were too late for the shops and there was nothing in the flat. It doesn't cost much & makes a huge difference to arrive to a few essentials i.e. coffee, milk, sugar, condiments - maybe a bottle of prosecco! A local restaurant sold us some though later we found that the Coop on Calle Marcello, 5890 is open till 9pm
