"This was a fabulous place to stay, we had part of the apt, the 3 BR & 3 baths with 3 terraces. There were 5 of us, 4 shared 2 BR's & 1 had a BR to themselves, the 3 baths were well used & much appreciated. We lived on the kitchen terrace, relaxed, ate dinner & breakfast there & had wine & relaxed, watched huge ocean liners pass by & many smaller boats, was very nice & relaxing. I thought the best part was that I felt like I belonged, that I lived there, if only for 4 days. It had an elevator which was handy, the location was perfect, right by a water taxi stop & other boat stops, had restaurants nearby & was a good walk to the rest of Venice. We enjoyed walking tours, explored on our own, took a taxi to Murano & spent "big bucks", also saw Burano. We saw most of Venice, the big things, Doges Palace, St Mark's, etc, treated ourselves to a gondola ride one night, this was well worth it, even if it was "touristy", we totally enjoyed ourselves & brought our own Prosecco to enjoy. It was an hour ride which is good, just long enough. We also took the Doge's Palace tour ( do the skip the line tours - well worth it ) & went up on the top part where you had a great view even if it was a bit scary due to heights, took the jail tour which was great & interesting. You have to have "Aperol spritzer's" at any local outdoor place, also go over the "bridge of sighs" & hear the story. I went to Rome & Florence after this & would have spent more time in Venice if I had a choice, definitely want to return & would stay at this apt in a "heartbeat", it was great & well worth it. Thank you. Giorgio !!"
