Recent Venice reviews

  • Charming, decent location

    "This is perfectly located and just far enough away from the crowds along the water way. The Arsenal bus stop is about 3 minutes from the apartment and there are also plenty of places in the area to eat, and pick up groceries. We were 3 adults and 3 children and fit very comfortably here."

  • 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."

  • Wonderful!

    "Hi Stefania, thank you so much for your help during our stay. The apartment was wonderful, very well equipped, great proximity and a great view out the window. If you needed anything you found it in this apartment, we were able to eat in or out with great restaurants near and grocery stores as well. We had four in our company my wife and our two sons with plenty of room without running into each other. The bed rooms were clean as was the bedding, etc. plus there was a washing machine as well. The whole apartment was clean which was so nice to walk into after a long drive. Stefania was very helpful in giving directions as well as suggesting places to visit and things to do. It was a great experience. I would caution anyone that does not like stairs or has difficulty in climbing stairs to keep this in mind (it is the top floor, at least four flights). There is a lift but it is not for public use. We handled the stairs fine but just a word of caution."

  • Fantastic

    "This apartment has everything you require for a great stay in Venice. We are 2 couples in our early 60s and didn't know quite what to expect as sometimes what you see in the photos do not necessarily reflect the actual property. In this case, the photos match the real thing. The property was built in the 1600s and has a romantic charm however the quality of fittings and furnishings in the apartment could not be faulted. Anna was most helpful on our arrival advising of which are the better sights; restaurants etc. She was kind enough to meet us at S Marcoula boat stop to direct us to the apartment. Be aware that the apartment is on the top floor of the palace (5th floor) and there is no elevator. However anyone slightly fit should have no trouble negotiating them (unless you have very heavy luggage!)"

Venice Travel Tips

Getting to Venice Vacation Rentals

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.
