About the property

- Minimum Stay3 nights
Studio, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
This recently renovated apartment is located in the heart of the historic center of Venice, halfway between the Rialto bridge (a six minute walk) and St. Mark’s Square (a three minute walk). It is very calm because it looks on to a private courtyard and it is accessible only through another quiet venetian private yard.
The apartment is a delightful studio on the ground floor.
The sleeping area is divided by an antique armoire from the living area
In the sleeping area you will find a double bed and a chest and in the living area you will find a double sofa bed and a chest of drawers; again there is a table with four chairs, the private bathroom is decorated in fine pink marble from Portugal, complete with a bathtub and a hairdryer, and the kitchenette made in red marble from Verona is equipped with a refrigerator and freezer-cell, a four-burner gas stove, an oven and a microwave.
Even if the apartment is on a ground floor the living area is quite bright thanks to a window and a large French window that both looks on to a private courtyard.
Don't worry about the tipical Venitian hight water because the apartment is located in an raised area.
With the exposed wooden beam ceiling and hardwood/brick flooring this apartment captures the beauty of historical Venice.
Independent heating system; everything renewed on May 2004.
Within a radius of fifty meters (really!) you will find: a supermarket, a fruit and vegetable store, a bakery, a dairy, a butcher, a pizza take-away, a wine shop, an electrical appliance store, an internet café, various restaurants, pizzerias and bars, as well as many different kinds of stores. Moreover, in just five minutes by foot you will find two banks, the postal-office and many others typical places where you can eat wonderful fish or just drink a typical cocktail. With everything just at your doorstep you will think you are in the comforts of your own home. As the apartment is located right in the center of the city near the most beautiful monuments, quite a lively area, you can easily reach every other interesting point in the city in just thirty minutes by foot. In addition, it is situated only six minutes away from the two most important vaporetto (water bus) stops in the city (Rialto and San Zaccaria). However, remember that in Venice it is best to travel by foot or with the Venetians on the vaporetto, because the water taxis are very expensive.
If you arrive from the bus station or the car parks (Piazzale Roma stop), or from the train station of Venice “Santa Lucia” (Ferrovia stop), take the vaporetto number 2 (which costs 6,50 Euro per person) for about fifteen minutes until you reach the Rialto stop. Then it is just six minutes by foot to reach the apartment. You can also take a water taxi which costs about 50-60 Euro per trip.
If you arrive from the airport, take the bus to Venice (a twenty minute ride). Once you arrive in Piazzale Roma, take the vaporetto number 2 as mentioned above. You can also take a water taxi direct from the airport which costs about 80-90 Euro per trip.
If you arrive by car you must leave it in the car park. In Venice it costs between 24 to 30 Euro per day (if there is space). In Mestre it costs 8 Euro per day at the car park in front of the train station; then you just take the train to “Venezia Santa Lucia” (which costs 1,50 Euro) and take the vaporetto number 2 as mentioned above.
If you are already in Venice you can easily reach the apartment by foot.
Our apartment is listed on the official Accomodation list of the City of Venice (let's see the link below).

I was born in Venice, and I spent all of my life here, in the historical center of this amazing city. With my beautiful wife Nina we'll make all our best to make you feel comfortable. We rent few apartments of our family with great passion, offering and expecting the utmost seriousness. We rent these apartments from many years also on other very known sites with great satisfaction of our guests, and we are in the official accommodation guide of the city of Venice. We live few minutes from the apartments, so we can help you easly for any kind of trouble. If you want to spend some relaxing days here, in the real center of the city, in a calm and quite place, we're expecting you! Greetings from Venice, Francesco and Nina. P.S. Our foto was taken in St.Mark's Square the 31th October 2012, during an high water event.
Francesco and Nina purchased this Apartment in 1950

exacctly what we wanted to get the flavor of the city.
Nina is delightful. Perfect size, new , roomy bathroom. Two suggestions to improve the apt:
1) the bed needs a new mattress and softer pillows (very hard pillows and mattress wasn't comfortable) and softer towels. 2) the shower attachment would be easier to use if it was attached to the wall permanently _ trying to hold it w/ one hand and lather up or shampoo with one was a little difficult. Picky but hopefully helpful information
Best feature is location, great location!
Everything was wonderful. Had a large tub which is a rarity. Convenient to San Marco and Rialto. Lots of eateries around. Shops, shops, shops. Pillows not great, upstairs neighbor noisy til midnight or later.
Great location. The apartment was all we needed for what little time we were in it.
The apartment was exactly want we expected based on the photos shown. The kitchen was tiny but functional, but why cook with so many places to eat. The only negative, though minor, the apartment needed brighter lighting.
Great place at the heart of Venice
First off I have to say the directions provided for this apartment were amazing. I had to travel there to meet my wife ( who made it there hours before me) at midnight and I was able to easily make my way there following the directions. It's a nice little place with a great location you can walk just about anywhere you would need to go. You can get groceries around the corner and there are many stores and restaurants around. You are a few minutes walk from st marks basilica if you wish to visit that. Highly recommend
Great location in the heart of Venice
This place is exactly as advertised It is well equipped and located in a quiet courtyard. The instructions for getting there are excellent, and Francesco is an excellent host who shared a lot of practical and useful information with us about Venice and getting around. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend it highly
This small studio apartment is perfectly placed for easy access to Piazza San Marco. Nina and Francesco's notes on how to get to the apartment are exemplary. There are only two bridges to cross if you arrive at Rialto and the walk is otherwise easy. Everything you need is in the flat and even coffee was provided for us to make a welcoming drink. Nina was there to greet us and she gave us some restaurant recommendations
