'This romantic corner of Venice with the Arch of Paradise was the source of inspiration for many poets, writers and photographers as Carl Spitzweg in 1832, John Ruskin, Frank Brangwyin in 1910, James Fergusson, the Alinari brothers (important Italian photographers ), The children-book writer Pinin Carpi wrote a book entitled 'Il ponte del Paradiso' ,
Why should you choose this apartment?: I am aware that it is not easy to rent a house in Venice where the market offers a great choice of apartments for rental.
I can say that my decision to buy this apartment in spite of its higher price in respect to other flats of the same size was due to the fact that I found it had some very special and unique features:
1) the fantastic view from all the windows over the canal . You see a canal crossing where the gondolas seem to slip under the building and you feel like living on a bridge in a romantic atmosphere.
2.)f the central location a a at five minute-walk from Sa Marco square and Rialto bridge
3) the terrace
4) the apartment is on the second floor and has a magnificent view.
5) the charming history of the calle and the Paradiso arch.
6) the 'calle del Paradiso' is very quiet and it is close to ' salizzada San Lio 'where you find all kind of shops
I would also like to say that the renovation was completed in 2015 and that the apartment was completely equipped with new furniture.

I am an architect and I put a great deal of passion in carrying out the restoration works. I saved all the original characteristics and I tried to recuperate as much as possible from the old decoration. For example the 'seminato ' floor - a kind of Venetian mosaic - was recreated according to the original pattern (but now it is perfectly even, a very rare thing in Venice!), the ceiling rafts are the old ones and have been perfectly restored, the bedrooms parquet floors are made of elm- wood.,
It was a great pleasure for me to restore this apartment and I would like to rent it out to people who will appreciate it and think of it as their home in Venice.
