Recent Venice reviews

  • The view for the price Wow..

    "My husband and I stayed here for three wonderful nights this past September. This apartment is very spacious. The tv was very easy to operate. The kitchen was stocked with a few basics so we were able to relax and enjoy Venice instead of hurrying to a grocery store to stock up we were able to wander and enjoy everything Venice has to offer. We are early risers so I will say the boat taxis with the overly happy people at 3am can be a little much for a light sleeper but, the view.... Amazing. Would highly recommend this unit for anyone. The only reason I am giving it a 4 and not a 5 is that the toilet closest to the bedroom did not work."

  • Magical

    "Sorry for what may seem like hyperbole but this is a pretty magical place in a beautiful otherworldly city. Watching gondolas from the terrace while sipping my morning coffee. There is no other place like this! Strolling the ancient streets and bridges. It was warm out but the a/c worked fine inside. The apartment is bright and pretty. Italy Perfect is Perfect."

  • The perfect luxury base for seeing Venice and touring the Veneto Region

    "The Villa is perfectly located really to visit the City of Venice which we did by both train and car, the beach resorts of Lido di Jesolo and Caorle as well as all the other wonderful sights there are to see around the Veneto including Treviso, Padova. Vicenza and we even did a lovely day trip to Verona and the Lakes. The Villa is huge, private, tranquil and beautifully furnished and the beds are all so comfortable. We took the bicycles into the local village for fresh bread every morning and the figs from the trees in the garden made a perfect breakfast. We want to come back very soon!"

  • Loved everything about this apartment

    "Absolutely perfect for a single person. Spacious, but cozy. Location is ideal. Quiet, but close to best bakery/coffee (Tonolo), Campo Santa Margherita (fruit, vegetable & flower vendors), and the marvelous sestieri of Dorsoduro, Santa Croce & San Polo. Kitchen is small, but one can easily prepare simple meals. Tiny washer is very functional. Giorgia is kind and friendly; will answer questions & respond to inquiries, but otherwise leaves you alone. If you want to comfortably enjoy your stay in Venice, and have a sense of what it is like to live there - this is the place for you!"

Venice Travel Tips

Getting to Venice

Venice is a well-known European vacation destination located on the northwestern coast of Italy. Known for its waterways and magnificent architecture, it is a city that is easily accessible by land, air and sea. The Marco Polo International Airport is located approximately four miles outside the city center. The airport hosts most major European airlines as well as other international airlines on regularly scheduled daily flights. There are also several low-cost regional European airlines that have frequent flights into Venice.

If traveling from North America or other parts of the world, you may need to route via Rome, Milan, Frankfurt, London or one of the other major European hubs. If you are already in Europe, you may consider driving or traveling by train to Venice. There is good road access with a number of main highways and arterial roads. There is an extensive rail network that links Venice with the rest of Italy and Europe. High-speed intercity trains are a convenient way to travel and often more affordable than flying. Venice is a major European cruise port. Many cruise ships start and end their itineraries in Venice. Others simply stop off for a few days before moving down the coast to other Mediterranean destinations. Smaller private yachts often dock in Venice; if you have your own tender, you can independently explore some of the canals.

Benefits of Staying in Venice Apartments

Venice is the type of city you want to be able to explore at your own pace. There are so many different places of interest, including beautiful churches, canal-side cafés, museums and art galleries. Staying in a vacation home allows you to get a glimpse of the real Venice. Tucked away in side streets, above bakeries or bookshops, the apartments are often quite compact but still comfortable. Furnished in elegant Italian style, it’s like having your own private hotel suite, except it’s more affordable and has a kitchen so you can do your own catering. Shop for groceries at the local store and get freshly baked bread, cheeses and cold meats from the local deli. By the end of your stay, you may never want to leave.

Venice Travel Attractions

It’s difficult to take in all of Venice’s attractions unless you plan an extended stay in the city. There are a number of historic landmarks that are must-sees and some Venetian activities you must do. Most people associate Venice with romantic gondola rides through the canals. While they may seem a little touristy and they are quite expensive, they are still worth every cent, especially if you have that special person sitting next to you. The Piazza San Marco is a place where locals and tourists gather en mass during the warmer summer months. There are a number of expensive cafés and restaurants where you can enjoy a cup of coffee. The Basilica Di San Marco is a cathedral located just off the square and a magnificent example of Byzantine architecture. It is a place that houses many religious relics plundered during the Crusades. The Grande Canal is Venice’s main waterway. There are ferries and cruises that can take you up its 2.5-mile length. The ferries stop at various points on either side of the canal. There are a number of bridges that cross the canal. The most famous is the Ponte di Rialto which dates back to 1591. For more than two centuries, it was the only pedestrian bridge across the canal. This area houses many shops and food stores, and is great for browsing.
