An ultra-convenient and relaxing second floor apartment, part of an antique palazzo in upmarket San Samuele - a calm and cultured neighbourhood of galleries and antique shops, well clear of the hustle and bustle yet close to Campo Santo Stefano with its inviting outdoor cafes and the Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art.
Steps away from the illustrious ‘Palazzo Mocenigo’ on the Grand Canal - the one time Venetian bolthole of ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know’ British romantic poet and literary figure, Lord Byron (1788-1824), and next door to ‘Casa Veronese’ - home of the outstanding 16th Century Italian Renaissance painter, Paolo Veronese (creator of ‘Wedding at Cana’ and ‘Feast in the House of Levi’ which today hangs in the Accademia Academy of Fine Arts just across the nearby Accademia Bridge).
Ca’ Grassi 1 is peaceful, light and airy and freshly decked out in delightful colour throughout. It offers wifi internet connection and, in terms of its accommodation, comprises a spacious and tastefully furnished living/dining room, a well-equipped kitchen (stop off at the local grocery/delicatessen and wine shop for ingredients to create your own favourite dishes back at ‘home’), two comfortable double bedrooms (one large, the other more compact and both with double beds), a bathroom with bathtub and a hand held shower and a second bathroom with a spacious shower. It has been completely renewed .
Let yourself be tempted by the nearby cafes and restaurants and, when you’re ready to venture forth and explore or re-visit the city’s countless charms, you’ll find two vaporetto stops just minutes away along with two ‘Traghettos’ which, during operating times (please check before making your journey) ferry passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal – one running between Calle Del Tragheto (near Sant’ Angelo) and San Toma in the district of San Polo and the other running between San Samuele and Ca’ Rezzonico and its Museum OF 18th Century Art in Dorsoduro.
