On the second floor it commands views of two canals and the lovely Venetian architecture in its terracotta, yellow and green colours. The apartment is well appointed with all that you could need and just right for a family or in our case, two couples when the two showers and toilets are essential. The cooking facilities are fine, and as a chef, I was at home with the gas hob and we had a couple of meals out on the terrace. There is a local grocery and market for all your needs. It is also central so five minutes from the grand canal and San Marco so just ideal. Tips: at the airport buy a return Alilaguna boat which saves a bit and at the grand canal, buy a Vaporetto carnet for however many days you need it. That is essential to get around although You can walk most of Venice but will need the vaporetto to get to the islands and specific grand canal locations. Restaurants, we started a 'pile' of cards of those we liked. Seek out the Ostereias, as they are the most authentic of the area and well priced. If you don't enjoy, it's your own fault. A perfect location in a fabulous city. Clive Marshall.
