A great apartment

5 of 5
Palazzo Falier (pron. Paltazo Falyaire) is an ideal place from which to explore Venice. It is situated on the Grand Canal a short walk from Academia Bridge and the vaporetto stop. It has it’s own landing stage so you can arrive in style straight from the airport by Water Taxi if you wish. The apartment is on the ground floor of the 900 year old Palazzo Falier, which was probably originally the house of some wealthy merchant or nobleman and is itself a fascinating place. The owner communicates in English and seems very pleasant. It has a fantastic view of the Grand Canal from the living room and is pleasantly decorated throughout. Situated in an area of Venice which is within easy walking distance of St Marks square, but nowhere near as busy. There are shops where you can buy food if you want to cook your own meals, or if you want to eat out there are a number of good restaurants in Campo San Stefano which is only about 5 minutes away. All in all, this is an ideal place to stay in Venice and is very good value for money.
