We loved our time in Venice, and it was a luxury to arrive back to this apartment at the end of each day.

Nice area of Venice, very convenient to neighborhood markets, restaurants, and transportation.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is located in a typical Venetian apartment building, however, this means it is old and does not have some of the conveniences many Americans may expect. To reach the apartment, one must not have any difficulty navigating three flights of stairs and must use three different keys to access doors from the street to the apartment. The wi-fi always worked well and except for no TV (which no tourist in Venice would use anyway), the apartment has all the necessary items any visitor might need. Enjoy!

Large, light Venice studio

  • 5 of 5

This large, light studio is well located in a quiet block with access to great restaurants and shops outside the door. Mario and our allocated guide were extremely responsive and very helpful.

Great location, very spacious

  • 4 of 5

This was a large open space on the top floor with a huge sitting room and kitchen. Great location close to St Marks. We walked the entire city from here in our four day stay. Communication with Mario was helpful and we were met by a guide who took us to the apartment. Listening to the bells was a wonderful experience. As we were right above the lane we heard early morning passers by a a few late night revellers on Saturday night. We read about the outside noise so we’re glad we brought earplugs. We had a huge suitcase so it was a challenge to lug up the 61 steps the first day. Wi fi was very weak but it worked and we met our needs at local cafes. Thank you for a great stay.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in your apartment. It was very convenient to walk from water taxi to the apartment. We loved exploring the area where we stayed. They had all of the amenities needed for our short stay. As another reviewer stated there is no lift so be mindful of how you pack!

Nicely updated apartment close to St Marks square

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully updated apartment with all the modern conveniences including a washing machine and dishwasher. The only issue would be if you were infirm as it is located on the 3rd floor.
