Venice airbnb stay - wonderful

Great property excellent location everything you need
Venice hide away
The property is in a great location with high end stores right next door. The property itself was nice, it was great to have A/C. We found the lighting to be lacking. When you have the beautiful beams, you have floor lamps. The beds was super hard, and really bad pillows. The dishwasher didn't open all the way, we were afraid to pull open fully because of door. We couldn't figure out how to run it, and there was a left over pod in there, so we weren't the only ones. The couch is very dated. The lift is tiny, so be aware. It was fine for us tho.
A lovely apartment in an amazing location!
My friend & I had a wonderful stay here & couldn't believe how centrally located it was to everything we wanted to see & do. Just a few blocks from La Fenice (the beautiful opera house), Piazza San Marco, the vaporetto, the Guggenheim Museum & more! The rooms were so comfortable & the kitchen was well equipped for what we needed, mostly breakfast. It's a safe area for older women like us & right in the middle of the high end shopping area. We couldn't recommend this apartment more highly.
Spacious, charming, and perfect location!
Our host greeted us and took us to our place. She was very helpful and answered all our questions. The apartment was clean and modern with Italian flare. Located just steps away from fantastic restaurants and San Marco Plaza. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Great location, lovely host. Visiting for the Biennale, so good to come back to a nice apartment at the end of the day 😁
The sestiere of San Marco is the oldest and most famous of Venice. The center par excellence of the sestiere is Piazza San Marco. Known as "the living room of the world", it was the site of the most important political and religious events for the Most Serene Republic and center of Venetian life for almost a millennium. Piazza San Marco is considered to be the largest museum in the lagoon city: it is here that the city of Venice is born, with the Basilica and Palazzo Ducale. The San Marco district takes its name from the Basilica erected to contain the body of the evangelist Mark, brought from Alexandria by Egypt by two Venetian merchants, in the year 828. Since then San Marco became the patron saint of the city, taking the place of San Teodoro, the first patron saint of Venice. Next to the sacred building stands the Palazzo Ducale which, together with the basilica, is the symbol of the lagoon city. Until the fall of the Republic of Venice in 1797 it was the residence of the doge, public palace and place of the public administration of justice.
TO SEE in the monumental area of Piazza San Marco:
- El paron de casa: this is how the Venetians affectionately call the Campanile di San Marco.
- The Clock Tower: recently restored, it supports the Due Mori designed to beat the hours.
- The Procuratie Nuove and the Procuratie Vecchie, which delimit the piazza side by side, hosting historic cafés such as Caffè Florian and Caffè Quadri as well as elegant shops and jewelers.
- The two splendid columns of the San Marco square with the most important symbols of Venetian history: the statue of San Teodoro and the winged lion.
- The Bridge of Sighs: from here the prisoners passed by going from the courts to the prisons knowing that they would probably never see the light of the sun again.
NOT TO BE MISSED:
- Corerr Museum which offers an exciting itinerary to discover the art and history of Venice.
- The Marciana National Library which contains about 750,000 volumes.
- The Marciana Library, a beautiful Renaissance building started by J. Sansovino is finished by Scamozzi.
- Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, well known for its round scalar tower with a spiral staircase.
- Church of San Salvador: treasure of history and art between faith and devotion.
- The Grand Canal: flanked by splendid palaces, it is also one of the most fascinating routes to enjoy a wonderful view over the lagoon and the island of San Giorgio.
