  • Awesome apartment!

    "This place is really nice and the photo's on VRBO are accurate. The wood beams are great and the whole place is just really interesting. We rented 4 apartments while in Italy and I think we all liked this place the best. While the second bedroom is really more of a private nook, we had no trouble at all as the place is huge and the nook is quite private. We were with our 12 year old daughter and she had no complaints at all. The location is probably less than 200 meters from St. Mark's square but it is really quiet. The only warnings I have are that there are 77 steps to get up into the apartment and some of the areas have low beams or ceilings. I am 6'1" and had to duck in a few spots but had no trouble at all. We didn't mind the stairs too much and being on top of the building was worth the walk."
