|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
Admirably tucked away just a quick sidestep off the vibrant little shop-filled thoroughfare known as ‘Calle della Mandola��� (Street of the Almond) connecting Campo Santo Stefano and Campo Sant’ Angelo with the famous Rialto Bridge and district to the north and St. Mark’s Square and its myriad attractions to the south, Ca�� Rossini 1 is on the first floor of the property and offers air-conditioning throughout.
Sleeping four guests in fresh and uncluttered simplicity and named after the adjacent ‘Multisala Rossini’ complex (recently opened and handily housing a 3-screen cinema, bar, restaurant and supermarket for stocking up on supplies), Ca’ Rossini 1 features a white-beamed main open plan living/dining/kitchen area with a contemporary L-shaped sofa, a dining table seating six and a fully-fitted kitchen all decked out in subtle oyster colours liberally peppered with accents of hot mustard yellow.
The two comfy bedrooms are both en-suite, completely private and similarly arranged - one with a double bed and up-to-the-minute shower room bedecked in iridescent mosaic tiles to the rear of the main room, and the second sitting just to the side of the main room with a double bed and an equally modern en-suite shower room with extensive mosaic tiling and a washing machine.
Are you part of a larger group who would like to stay close together but in separate apartments? We offer another apartment in this building: Ca’ Rossini 2
Comfort, design and convenience combined - a great all-rounder of a property and a smart choice for those seeking out all Venice has to offer!
Moments on foot to some of Venice's finest attractions including the gorgeous Gothic Palazzo Fortuny (Museum of Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo - famous photographer, painter, stage and textile designer), the charming Scala Contarini del Bovolo (currently under renovation) and the Teatro La Fenice, and within a few minutes of two vaporetto (water bus) stops for easy travel around the city - one at Rialto on the Riva Del Carbon and the other at Sant’ Angelo.
Also close to two ‘Traghetto’ services ferrying passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal (please check operating times) - one between the Riva Del Carbon near Rialto in the district of San Marco and the Riva Del Vin at San Silvestro in the district San Polo and the other between Calle Del Tragheto near Sant' Angelo in San Marco and San Toma in San Polo.
The apartment is well equipped and is ideal for two couples as there are two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. The managing agents, ViewsonVenice, were attentive and responded immediately to texts and phone calls. The apartment is conveniently located and is equidistant between Rialto and Accademia bridges, each a leisurely 10 minute walk away. Being next to a cinema and a supermarket was actually a major advantage. During our stay we saw Hamlet with Benedict Cumberbatch in English, with Italian subtitles, a film we had all wanted to see! The supermarket has an excellent fresh food counter and sells delicious ready cooked meals like asparagus lasagne and many other treats. After a tiring day walking around, it was very convenient to nip down, buy some food, and eat in the apartment before going out again as we found the food in the restaurants very ordinary and ridiculously expensive. We also found quite a few exhibitions which we stumbled across near the Accademia Bridge - modern artists we had never heard of but whose work we found really interesting.
We would definitely stay in this apartment again as Venice is a place you just want to visit again and again. As for visits and exhibitions we would recommend the following:
Ca' Pesaro for modern art
The Peggy Guggenheim gallery, again for modern art, and also the location
A good place for a sandwich and drink at lunchtime is the Corner Pub just a few yards away from the Peggy Guggenheim (I know it does not sound appealing but it is fine, it is Italian, and it does not sell John Smiths beer!).
It is worth trying out any exhibition that you find by accident. These are often temporary and free to enter and some take you by surprise.
A visit to the islands of Burano and Torcello is a lovely day out.
If you want to escape the crowds, the district of Cannaregio makes for a quiet, pleasant walk and the gardens at the opposite south-eastern end of the island are very peaceful.
We were very pleased with the apartment and it's in a great location right in the heart of Venice and convenient for the main sights. It was modern, clean and well equipped for our 3 night stay.... warm too. The arrival and departure process went smoothly too and we felt well looked after. I'd happily recommend the apartment to friends and family.
We were very pleased with our choice of this apartment for our short stay in Venice. Everything was as described on the website, very clean and well-maintained, and with good customer service. The apartment was ideally located, in close proximity to a water taxi stop (San Angelo) and a grocery store that was around the corner. We really enjoyed our first meal in Venice at nearby Rosa Rosa Restaurant and Pizzeria where we dined outside in a candlelit alleyway. We wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely plan to stay here again should we return.
The description of the property was accurate. This was a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment with nicely updated bathrooms and large rooms. The kitchen was completely equipped although we didn't really use it. The beds were comfortable although the sheets and towels could be updated. The property was clean and well maintained.
Throughout the booking process the management was quick to reply to emails and very helpful. The meet and greet went smoothly and management was kind enough to print our boarding passes for us. Annalisa, Valentino, Christine and the complete reservation team were kind, courteous, and very helpful. Thanks so much! Would recommend this to friends.
