__________

This distinctive ground-floor apartment is situated in the vibrant district of Cannaregio, near the magnificent Madonna dell’Orto church (and its handy vaporetto stop, offering a 20-min Alilaguna boat ride direct from the airport).

Handy, yet well-off the battered main tourist track, one can live amongst the locals as a local. Grab a caffè in a bustling pasticceria, shop in the open markets, or dine in one of the many colorful seafood restaurants lining the nearby Misericordia canal; check e-mail before heading out to explore the city over tea in your private garden.

The iconic, eponymous church of Madonna dell’Orto with its world famous collection of Tintoretto works is literally around the corner, as is the artist’s home where he lived for most of his life.

This is a ground-floor apartment that is *never* affected by high-water (although we supply boots in case it shows up outside). Draw screens down over open windows and mosquitoes will never be a problem.

This is the quintessential Venetian neighborhood, 'ben servito,' which means you can find anything from supermarkets, fresh markets, and shops for vino “al sfuso” and finer fare, to butchers to pasticcerie, from clothing and shoe to hardware stores, to bars and bàcari to notions and pharmacies. This area of the Cannaregio sestiere also boasts some of the best and most reasonably options for dining in Venice, with a host of cafes and eateries in the city. Of course, you’ll receive our insider’s list on arrival!

This cozy, airy apartment is handy to the Orto vaporetto stop serving Lines 4 and 5, and also to San Marcuola and the Grand Canal. Saunter to the San Sofia traghetto to be ferried to the Rialto Markets and all of San Polo, or hop the Ca d'Oro vaporetto instead.

For the actively inclined, just down the fondamenta Gasparini is the starting point for RowVenice.org Venetian rowing lessons.

Italian masterpiece!

We loved staying here and will definitely be back! Great place with everything you need to enjoy your stay in Venice. Located in a nice quiet neighborhood away from all the crowds yet easy to get anywhere using vaperetto or walking. We didn't want leave and will definitely be back!!

Great location in a great city

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Venice. Although we were in the middle of a heat wave, we were ideally located to get vaporetto journeys around Venice without having to walk more than 1 minute from our door. The Cannaregio was exactly the sort of area we were looking to stay in Venice, great location with plenty of amenities. Nan met us at the apartment on arrival and gave us suggestions for places to eat and supermarkets nearby. Nan was also very helpful and went out of her way when a problem arose.

Great place in Venice

  • 5 of 5

The apartment very clean and well taken care of.The best part was that it was only a few yards from the Orto boat stop and we could easily get anywhere in Venice or the local islands.It is in a very quiet location, in a part of the city that seems to be all locals. We really liked it and would stay here again anytime

Live Like a Local

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a fantastic, off-the-beaten-path location! There are picturesque canals within a 2 minute walk from the apartment and your neighbors will be mostly local people. The neighborhood is quiet, the Orto vaporetti stop is a 2 minute walk away, and the apartment is especially well suited for traveling to Murano & Burano.

The kitchen is well stocked w/ plates, cutlery, etc, the sprawling couches are ginormous, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious. Prior to our arrival, Nan e-mailed us a map showing locations of supermarkets, restaurants, bars, etc. This map was extremely helpful as the closest supermarket was at the far end of an alley about 2 meters wide! We never would have thought a fairly large supermarket was at the end of such a narrow alley! Nan very kindly offered to help us with dinner plans the first evening we were in the apartment.

While the outdoor area sounded appealing, we found it (as well as all other landscaped areas in Venice such as Giardini Publicci & the Cemetery) very buggy. We ended up using the outdoor area only for drying our laundry.

With the apartment being on the ground floor, there was only 1 step to carry our luggage up. :-) If we visit Venice again, we would definitely stay in this apartment again!

Alilaguna Arancio line offers an easy 20-minute, €15 boat ride from the airport to this extraordinarily tranquil neighborhood, just around the corner from Tintoretto's original home, his church, the luminous Madonna dell'Orto, and the Jewish Ghetto. This cozy, airy apartment is handy to the Orto vaporetto stop serving Lines 4 and 5, and also to San Marcuola and the Grand Canal. Saunter to the San Sofia traghetto to be ferried to the Rialto Markets and all of San Polo, or hop the Ca d'Oro vaporetto instead.
