Great location, lovely host. Visiting for the Biennale, so good to come back to a nice apartment at the end of the day 😁
Wonderful apartment with perfect location!
We had a great time in Venice! The apartment was located in a safe area very near San Marco Piazza. The only reason I am giving 4 stars is because living room furniture was outdated and did not have a view from any window. You could see the backside of a building. We did not use the kitchen just because we do not cook during vacations but I noticed it had marble counter. Beds were comfortable; the entire place has wood floors and very clean. It has an elevator! iMany beautiful high end stores around it and about 2 blocks from the boat stop. Ariana came to meet us and guide us to the apartment. We had to pay 20 or 30 euros extra because we arrived after 6:00 PM. She gave us a map and gave us directions, also recommended a cozy restaurant with delicious food few blocks from the apartment. Restaurants near the apartment were wonderful also. Make sure to buy your train tickets in advance from wherever you are. We bought our train tickets 3 days in advance and we were looking to arrive at 4:30 PM. but there were no trains to Venice for that time, we arrive at 6:00 PM. When you arrive you have to buy tickets to go to San Marco island where is the apartment, line # 1. The boat has different stops and it took half an hour to arrive to the stop "Giglio", were Ariana met with us. The boat ride is such a beautiful experience, but next time I will take a taxi. We bought tickets for 3 days unlimited and you could go every where including Murano island and other islands. You can take any line for every place. Line # 7 take you directly with NO stops from Murano to San Marco. We bought tickets for the airport shuttle, The entire ride between boat and shuttle took us almost one and half hours. We had plenty of time but next time we will take a taxi. Shuttle leaves from Piazza di Roma. The experience was priceless and beautiful!
22 Marzo-- Great Stay at the Apartment
All was as advertised, and the receiving Hostess's were great, gracious, very helpful, professional, and quite friendly. Lucrezia met us as the agreed stop, led us to the apartment, where Arianna was waiting for us. Both got us settled, answered all of our questions, informed us about the apartment and the operations of lights, kitchen, ect. Provided info. for food shopping, how to navigate the area, and all essentials required to have a very comfortable stay. There were not surprises, and we functioned quite well in the apartment, and due to it's central location, it was extremely easy to navigate the whole area-- shops, restaurants, exhibits, even the Opera house. We highly recommend this apartment, and we were there for 6 nights. So Wonderful, quiet, and convenient.
5 star location
The location in Venice was terrific. Francesca, that let us into the apartment was really nice and helpful. There was just a few downsides that is why I gave the apartment a 3. It was hard to shower as there was no curtain. There was no toaster and the kitchen was sadly lacking in supplies. The washing machine was broken and we had been traveling quite a bit and really planned on using it when we got there. A few of the kitchen chairs were broken. My husband feel through one and had to duck tape it so someone wouldn't get hurt. The bed was uncomfortable but they were everywhere I stayed so that is a bit expected. There was a few other things but I can't remember them now. The apartment was clean and communication was good leading up to the rental.
Great location and place, needs more active owner
This apartment has an ideal location just 5 minutes from Piazza San Marco and close to shopping, restaurants, cafes, and central Venice. It was very comfortable for our family of four and we enjoyed our stay. The apartment lacked wifi, despite advertising it had it, and had a broken washing machine. Both were big issues during a five-day stay. The couch would be an uncomfortable bed for a fifth person and lacked bedding and sheets, but the other beds were comfortable and the bathroom was fine. We would return again if not for the wifi and washing machine issues.
We stayed for 3 nights in early Nov. Alice was a friendly host and communication was good. The apartment is exactly what the pictures show, perfect for a couple, clean and modern. It had all the necessities we required. Wifi connection was good. The apartment is in an excellent location. A great experience and highly recommended!
The San Marco district is the oldest and the most famous of Venice. The center for excellence in the district is Piazza San Marco. Known as "the drawing room of the world", it has been the site of political events and the most important religious center for the Venetian Republic and the Venetian life for almost a millennium. Piazza San Marco is to be considered as the biggest museum of the lagoon city: it is precisely here that starts the city of Venice, with the Basilica and the Ducal Palace. The San Marco district is named after the basilica erected to contain the remains of San Marco, brought from Alexandria, 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 first patron saint of Venice. Next to the sacred building stands The Doge's Palace that, along with the Basilica, is the symbol of Venice. Until the fall of the Venetian Republic in 1797 it was the residence of the Doge, a public building and the public administration Justice place.
Monumental attractions in the area of Piazza San Marco:
- El Paron de Casa: so Venetians affectionately call the Campanile of San Marco.
- The Clock Tower: recently restored, holds the Two Moors designated to beat the hours.
- The Procuratie New and Old Procuratie that laterally delimit the square hosting the historic cafes like the Caffè Florian and Caffè Quadri as well as elegant shops and jewelers.
- The two splendid columns of San Marco square with the most important symbols of Venetian history: the statue of St. Theodore and the winged lion.
- The Bridge of Sighs: hence the prisoners passed through going from the courts to the prisons, knowing that they would probably never see the light of day.
NOT TO BE MISSED:
- Museum Corerr which offers an exciting journey to discover the art and history of Venice.
- The Marciana National Library that contains about 750,000 volumes.
- The Marciana Library, beautiful Renaissance building begun by J. Sansovino and finished by Scamozzi.
- Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, well known for the tower climb round the spiral staircase.
- Church of San Salvador treasure of history and art between faith and devotion.
- The Grand Canal lined spendidi palaces, it is also one of the most fascinating to enjoy a wonderful view over the lagoon and the island of San Giorgio.
- The Teatro La Fenice: one of the most famous opera theaters in the world.
