Great location, owner is very helpful. Very clean. Would recommend.
This was our fourth visit to Venice, the previous three occasions staying at an hotel not so far away from the apartment, and so we knew the area quite well and appreciated the quieter location of Cannaregio.
We were met at the property by Silvana's husband Pietro who showed us around the property and where everything was and how it worked. Unfortunately, we couldn't seem to get the satellite TV to function but it was no big issue as we were here to see Venice and not to watch tv.
The apartment is very well equipped, everything you need is here and accessible. The main bedroom has beautiful oak beams dating back to the 1500's, the two bathrooms are spacious with super showers. The mattress is quite firm but is good for the back and soon get used to it.
One evening we left the apartment, turned right out of the door and walked as far as you could go and just watched the boat traffic whilst sitting on a bench, very peaceful. There is a Spar and Co Op nearby and so shopping is easy.
I only met Silvana briefly but she said that we could leave our luggage until we were ready to depart in the afternoon, she was a very charming lady.
Overall I give this apartment 10/10 on all points.
Amazing property in Venice
The experience was wonderful, we were met by our host who showed us the apartment and gave us lots of good tips on where to visit etc. The apartment was very unique and surpassed our expectations, we loved it and the Canneregio District. We hope to visit again. Thank you!
Thanks a lot, Carrie! You've been the ideal guests and we do hope to host you again in the near future
Lovely place to call home for 3 days.
Silvana is a wonderful host and lives right next door to the apartment. There are two big flights of stairs so prepare yourself for that. Silvana made dinner reservations for us at 2 local restaurants that were amazing. The apartment is actually on three levels with stairs that curve up to and around the sleeping loft up to the 2nd bathroom then the up to the main bedroom. They have put a lot into upgrading the interior and it is very nice. Only problem we had was not with the property but with google maps. From water bus drop off do not follow the google directions, they take you up and over at least 4 canals. On our way to dinner the first night we realized that we had only really needed to go over one bridge and around a few corners to the water bus stop. When in Venice don't use google maps.
Thank you, David, for your review and I hope you'll come back (with a fully recovered foot this time!)
Beautiful gem in Venice!
Spectacular modern apartment in a beautiful neighborhood in Venice, set in an old palace! Everything was impeccable and Sylvania was outstanding.
Thank you Jorge for taking such a good care of the apartment. It was a pleasure to have you both with us
We had such an amazing time staying in Silvana‘s beautiful flat. The building is gorgeous and in a great location. Silvana was terrific and was incredibly helpful. We would absolutely return to her flat the next time we come to Venice.
Thank you Silvana!
Thanks to you, Keith and Cindy, for your review and for leaving the apartment in such a perfect state, which was very kind of you. You are the ideal guests!
Palazzo Longo overlooks the Fondamenta della Misericordia, where there are many bacari, the osterias of the Venetian tradition. A few steps beyond the Foundations of the Ascension and the famous field of the Moors, is one of the finest examples of Venetian Gothic architecture, the church of Madonna dell'Orto, with the walls adorned with magnificent paintings by Tintoretto.
Continuing along the Ormesini Foundation and past the iron bridge we reach the field of the new Ghetto, the heart of the ancient Jewish settlement, with the five synagogues or schools be visited today.
Ca 'Vendramin Calergi, home to the municipal casino, is just 5 minutes walk. Just off the famous Ca 'd'Oro, with its art gallery. A service of gondolas can reach the other side of the Grand Canal with the fish market on the porch of the Gothic Fish. Nearby they are also the church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli and the magnificent church of San Giovanni e Paolo, the pantheon of the Doges.
