JUST ADDED AIR CONDIONING!!! (July 2015).
This sunny, 50 sq.m, first floor apartment (not to be confused with 'ground floor') is in a corner building located on a quiet, yet active, canal near the gardens of the Venetian Biennial International Art Fairgrounds.
It is best suited for 2-3 adults or a couple with 1-2 children/adolescents).
Although the area is 'off the beaten (tourist) path', with all the local color of Venetian housewives doing their morning shopping at the fresh fish and produce markets, children playing in the two, rare 'green areas' of Venice, and people taking the time for a 'spritz' or an 'ombretta' and 'cichetto' (aperitves) before lunch or dinner, it is still in a very strategic position (all lines and Alilaguna stop at 'Giardini', our waterbus-stop) allowing our guests easy access to the apartment from the airport, train station, or city parking lot on the mainland.
Piazza S. Marco is a 10min. walk and the Rialto Brige is 15min. away on foot, but it's nice to know that , after a day of sight-seeing, you can get back home - and anywhere in the laguna (Murano&Burano, and the Lido - Casinò and Film Festival)-with the 'vaporetto' as all lines stop here.
