Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Venice city centre - GRAN CANAL...Venetian Dream !

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6) ALL INCLUSIVE -

The Grand Canal Apartment is located a few steps away from Rialto Bridge and its famous market, and at less than 10 minutes by walk from Saint Mark's Square.The apartment it on a first floor of an old Venetian building, is completely renovated (May 2007), sound-proof, fully furnished, and decorated in Venetian style. All around the area there are every kind of shops,bars,resturants,pharmacy,fashion,internet points,churches,museums, monuments, and true the little canals there is the gondolieri rowing them gondola and singing the venetian songs. This is the area where the venetian people live, and where they do their shopping.

Since its origin , before the year one thousand , Rialto has been the economic heart of Venice . During the Serenissima Republic, it was here in the market that real Venetian retail and wholesale trade took place. Over time,the Market became more important as a result of new warehouses, but above all due to the creation of the credit institutes know as ' Banchi' where money changing and loan operations were carried out.

In this context of great economic vitality and wealth, there was The Erbaria, the vegetable market mainly fed by the garden of the lagoon islands, The Pescaria , the fisch market, where the fresch fish arrived from the lagoon and along the coast, The Casaria , the cheese market and the Naranzaria ,the citrus fruits market.

Many of Rialto's buildings were destroyed by a great fire in 1514 and the reconstructed ; the only which was saved by the fire is the xi century Church of Saint Giacomo .

Today , Rialto is still a lively and crowded shopping place where, in the morning from Monday to Saturday the fruit and vegetable market and the food market take place and , from Tuesday to Saturday the fish, is held.

Grand Canal Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Grand Canal Apartment for two weeks in September and it was the best choice. What most impressed us was its cleanliness. It was spotless. Every three days they came by to change sheets and towels and do a cleaning of the apartment. We dealt mostly with Fabio's (the owner) assistant. She was the one who met us at the vaporetto stop, and was most gracious and welcoming. The support and attention that Fabio and his assistant gave us was indeed a very comfortable feeling away from home.

The size of the apartment was very spacious for the two of us. It can easily fit 4 or 6, although they would have to use sofa beds and share them with the bedroom and the living/kitchen room. The bathroom was spotless, and the shower worked very well, with plenty of water. The location of the apartment was just perfect. It was in a very nice street, and in fact we are surprised Fabio does not include in his description a photo of the outside, because it is definitely a plus. There is a little market just a few steps down, which you see from your window, and then, of course, there is THE market further down. No words to explain that. And if you want a super market, you just go over the Rialto Bridge. But for what? Fabio outfits the apartment with the essentials. For moving around there was a vaporetto stop by the market that connected us to wherever we wanted to go. We thought we would walk more but actually ended up using the vaporetto a lot for its convenience; a weekly pass was a good saving. I could go on and on with the accolades. Suffice it to say this apartment is a winner. Thank you Fabio for providing such a welcoming place to stay in!

Great apartment in Venice

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just as advertised. Exceedingly clean, well stocked for breakfast and beverages, good location, and helpful staff. Monica was incredibly responsive and her staff assisted us with directions and walking us to the apartment. When we had trouble figuring out the stove, a staff person appeared almost instantly and helped us. The building was very secure. We would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay in Venice

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little apartment in Venice. We found the location to be good. It is a ways from the train station but close to many restaurants, the mercato & not far from the Rialto bridge.

The bedroom is a nice size, bathroom was small but works well. The shower was very nice considering many European showers are different than what we are used to. The living area again is fairly small but still works well. The view from the window is great, directly down a street and there is even a small restaurant very close. We did not try the food, but had a drink there. Very nice & I'm sure the food is good.

The owners/representatives were great to work with. The apartment was very clean & all worked well including the air conditioner.

We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Venetian Dreams Do Come True!! ❤️

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many VRBO apartments during our travels but THIS, is without a doubt, one of the best we have stayed in!

Booking was a breeze. Communication with the Monica was answered very promptly and with incredible detail. She is happy to answer any questions you may have about the apartment, transportation to and from Venice, everything!

The apartment, oh my goodness, it's was outstanding!!!

We were so impressed - it's even nicer than the pictures!

The location is excellent. So close to the Gran Canal, very near the Rialto bridge where the daily fish / produce markets are bursting with the freshest foods!

First of all, the apartment is very spacious. Very ornately decorated (and the bedroom feels like you are staying in a Palace - it really does!)

The apartment is nicely updated with modern amenities and it is SUPER super clean! The preserved wooden ceiling beams are a gorgeous testament to fabulous history of Venice!

The location is on a quiet side street, in beautiful neighborhood. It is very close to many shops, markets, bakeries, and restaurants which makes it a perfect place to unpack, then go off to explore the magical streets of Venice!

Once you've had your fill of wandering it's a special treat to return to this lovely home. You can sit back, sip some wine, nibble on some special treats you purchased at the markets and and watch the rest of the world go by on the street below as the church bells chime softly in the background!

Words can not explain just how amazing it was to simply relax in this apartment after a long day and just watch the day transition to night! Speechless!

A lovely surprise of coffee, tea, fresh fruit (a BIG bowl of fresh fruit), breads, jams, cookies, croissants, juice and water, milk, bellinis were waiting for us upon arrival. This was a welcome surprise after a full day of travel. A very special touch - thank you Monica and Fabio for this and also to Michela (who met us at the Rialto stop and guided us to the apartment).

The Wi-fi works great. The bed was comfortable. The shower was spotlessly clean, roomy and held plenty of hot water!

There is a fridge, stove, dishwasher and a washer/dryer (another great bonus), a hairdryer, TWO TV sets, a huge one in the master bedroom and another in the kitchen/living area. Every comfort of home is in this lovely apartment - truly wonderful!

We highly recommend staying at this Venetian Dream apartment if you are lucky enough to visit Venice! ❤️

An apartment in a good Venice location with amenities of a home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment made us feel like we are in our own home.. I love the bathroom, the very functional and all the amenities in the kitchen and of course the bedroom. And not to forget the location which makes it really accessible to Rialto market and San Marco. The apartment is also next to good pasta, gelato and cafes. Rialto market is near so you could buy your own fruits and sea food everyday. You could fine out or cook your own pasta. But all these would not be possible if not for Gianluca and Monica who have been a very attentive host during our entire stay. Thank you for making our stay an unforgettable one. We love the fruits, drinks and juice on our arrival. Thank you again!

Clean, well equipped with essentials (& more), perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Monica is wonderful, she provided detailed directions to the apartment, as well as arranged for someone to meet us. She even offered to help us print tickets for one of our activities (advice: if you buy the fast past for San Marco basilica you have to have printed tickets). The apartment was a perfect size for my sister and I, but I think it could sleep up to 6 if needed. Everything was clean, stocked with fresh fruits/snacks, and even had a hairdryer! We walked everywhere, but it's close to vaporetto if you prefer that. Overall, I'd highly recommend staying here.
