Perfect Base for a few Days in Venice

5 of 5
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to experience Venice to the fullest. Its location about 2 minutes' walk from the Piazza San Marco is absolutely fantastic, and it's great to be in the midst of the buzz of the town. Despite this it is very peaceful and quiet from about 10pm, so sleeping was not a problem at all. I loved hearing the bells tolling occasionally during the night, my boyfriend not so much - I suppose it depends how light a sleeper you are whether this would bother you or not. The apartment itself is beautiful (just as in the photos) and definitely enhanced the experience for me (even though we were out and about the majority of the days). We really appreciated the ability to prepare our own food and snacks, as we found eating out very expensive. There is a supermarket about 5 minutes' walk away, so everything we needed was at hand. The kitchen was well-equipped, as was the remainder of the apartment Donatella's communication leading up to our stay was excellent - she always responded very quickly and provided us with all the information we needed. If I am lucky enough to come back to Venice someday, I hope I will be staying here again

Great location, great apartment

5 of 5
Roberta met us in the local square at the agreed time. He then took us to the apartment and showed us around. The apartment has everything you need for a short vacation. And what a location, open the lounge window and gondolas are passing by on the canal. Of course the added bonus was that we were only 400yards from St Marks Square. What more do you want.
