About Annalisa & Daniela
Views on Venice was founded in the late 1990's when the concept of short term apartment rentals was in its infancy and rarely considered an option by most visitors to the city. As a ‘thirty-something' Venetian excited by the new business and communication opportunities offered by the internet, I decided to link up with a close childhood friend in creating a partnership which, at the time, was a novelty in Venice. The idea we had in mind was to approach the traditional management of my family's apartments from an entirely different angle, while at the same time resisting the attentions of those wanting to transform my family's palazzo into a prestigious hotel. Our aim was to offer these apartments, as well as those of friends, for rental to an international clientele who'd take pleasure in the comfort, freedom and authenticity of ‘living at home as a Venetian' rather than merely observing the city from the confines of an anonymous hotel room or suite. The common denominator then, as now, was to offer ‘something extra' amidst an already extraordinary city - an added dimension which turns a ‘stay' into an ‘experience' and a 'dream' into 'reality'...
Every thing is good
Style, creature comforts and history combined, in an area brimming with local flavour.
Within easy walking distance of Venice’s Santa Lucia Railway Station and Piazzale Roma if travelling light, and even closer to the vaporetto (waterbus) stops at Riva di Biasio and San Stae on the Grand Canal for hassle-free travel around the city.
And so much to see and do right on your doorstep��������������������
Moments to Campo San Giacomo Dell’ Orio - one of Venice������������s most charming �����������������������away from the crowds������������ tree-filled squares and home to a well-stocked Coop supermarket and nearby local shops - and a short walk to a Billa supermarket on the Rio Marin canal.
Close to a great variety of cafes, bars and eateries including All���������� Anfora, La Zucca, Il Refolo, Al Prosecco and Antica Besseta to name but a few, and within minutes of the Ca������ Pesaro International Gallery of Modern Art, Palazzo Mocenigo at San Stae (Museum of the History of Fabrics, Costumes and Perfumes) and the Fondazione Prada at Ca�� Corner Della Regina.
A leisurely stroll to the 14th Century Franciscan Church of the Frari, (home to Canova's extraordinary triangular marble tomb and Titian's legendary masterpiece, the 'Assumption'), the Scuola Grande di San Rocco with its amazing Tintoretto����s, the vast palazzo-lined Campo San Polo plus the culinary delights and buzz of the Rialto.
