About Claudia Bacchi

I have a degree in Architecture. My profession is journalist. I love to travel.

Why Claudia Bacchi chose Castello

It was the apartment in which my husband lived before marriage.

What makes this apartment unique

It 's very bright and very close to Piazza San Marco and the Biennale Gardens. In the morning and in the evening, you can watch the magnificent spectacle of sunrise and sunset along the Riva degli Schiavoni, with the sun rising from the east and sets in the west reflecting on the water of the lagoon.

Great value & location, reliable WIFI and AC

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with four other girls during a study abroad trip for 6 weeks. It met our needs, and had reliable AC/internet. It was about a five minute walk from the Arsenale stop, and was not extremely crowded with tourists. Claudia was out of the country when we stayed, but she made sure we had a contact in Venice that could help us. The contact was very responsive, and fixed our AC right away when it did not work. While the property does sleep five, it is better suited for a maximum of four if you plan on staying for a long time like I did. Communication with Claudia herself could have been a little better in the beginning, but overall I cannot complain! If I ever needed to live in Venice again, I would consider booking the place again.

Close to the Action and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

My wife, daughter and I spent three days at this property from May 16-19, 2017. Prior to our arrival the owner had supplied us with lots of helpful information dealing with apartment location, nearby restaurants, etc.

The apartment itself was clean and well appointed. It is a third floor walk-up so leave your heavy bags at home. (On the other hand, it did help ready us for a hike of the National Park trails we made later in Vernazza.) The apartment is in a neighborhood area and one has the feel of being a "visiting local". A nice little restaurant immediately downstairs wafted enticing smells upward in the evening and church bells and birds awoke us every morning. It is located just a short walk from the waterfront landings (isn't everything in Venice?) and is an easy walk to San Marco. There are lots of stopping places along the way for pizza and beverages. There are also two very historic hotels along the way . . . see if you can find them. We weren't in the apartment a whole lot as for us it was mainly a place to spend the night and nap. There was always plenty of hot water for showers and the beds are comfortable. I think this property is a good value for the money when one cost compares with comparable places closer to the square.

Don't miss the opportunity to attend a Vivaldi concert at the one of the churches -- unforgettable!

A Perfect Location and a perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in Claudia's apartment very much. It was perfect for us – light and airy. The apartment is very well appointed, clean, and with everything there that we needed.

There are cafes close by and a supermarket in Fondamenta S. Giorgio Schiavone. Al Canton del Vin is in Salizada San Francesco where you can buy wine by the litre in your own plastic bottle – very good value. Also there are other good local shops here.

Arriving on the Waterbus from the airport to Arsenale is a wonderful way to arrive in Venice.

The location is good, quiet and local, away from the crowds yet close for all we wanted to see with good walks around the area :–

The Architecture Biennale. The exhibitions in the Punta Della Dogana and the Palazzo Grassi. The Basilica Cattedrale Patriarcale di San Marco and many other churches.

We found very good restaurants – Trattoria Jonny in Campo delle Gatte which is close by – we ate there twice. We had a nice walk along the Fondamenta Nuova to Osteria Anice Stellato in Canneregia – a very good restaurant with an inventive menu. The Trattoria dai Tosi in Seco Marina, Castello for great pizza and close to the Biennale. The Al Storico da Crea in a boatyard on Giudecca – great food and wonderful views across the Lagoon – sit outside.

On our day of arrival we ate at Trattoria alla Nuova Speranza in Campo Ruga, Castello – sarde soar and grilled spigola a perfect start to our visit and and an interesting short walk from the apartment along the Via Garibaldi and then through a few back streets – the real Venice! Afterwards we visited San Pietro in Castello which was Venice's cathedral from 1451 to 1807 – so peaceful.

The last evening we went to a Vivaldi concert by Interpreti Veneziani in Chiesa San Vidal which was outstanding!

We had a wonderful cultural time and gastronomic delights in Venice.

Thank you for being able to rent your apartment and making our stay so relaxed.

Hopefully see you next year.

Ciao

Philip, Mary and Isabel

Good location and clean

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, son and girlfriend enjoyed our stay at Claudia's apartment. Even though Claudia was away when we arrived, she had provided directions and made arrangements with a neighbor to meet us and everything went smoothly. We did not use the kitchen other than for the electric kettle for morning coffee as many restaurants were nearby. The location was very good, only a five minute walk from the Arsenale stop. The nearby bar could be heard in the bedrooms, but all was quiet late at night. We were happy to have AC as Venice was very warm the first week of August. However, the AC is located by the entry door and cool air does not reach well to the back bedroom area. All in all, it was a great stay and we recommend it to others.

The perfect Venetian experience

  • 5 of 5

Claudia's apartment was perfect for our 3 night stay in Venice. Given the heatwave, the A/C offered welcome relief. We utilized the well stocked kitchen, cooking many meals. The location was also perfect; quiet, away from the crowds but close to major sites, shopping, restaurants and transport. I will definitely be going back!

Central but quiet, because in a street outside the noisy of domestic tourists, the apartment is located in one of the oldest area of Venice, where you meet venetians more than tourists. If you walk along Riva degli Schiavoni, fantastic when the lagoon is illuminated by the morning sun, and go to the Gardens of the Biennale, encounters the picturesque Via Garibaldi, very Venetian and unknown to the mass tourism, , which is typical for its restorants, its local market and the oldest fish shops. I advise you to have breakfast there in one of its many cafes. However, if you go to Piazza San Marco (you reach really in 10 minutes), you immerse yourself in the best-known Venice which needs no introduction. If you try an alternative way to visit the city, you can miss you inside the labyrinth of quiet and peaceful calli (streets) wandering aimlessly: every corner reserves a surprise. If you fear this adventurous lightness, you can follow your guide. Fortunately, no guide will protect you from the possibility of losing you, and if it happens, you should support it.
