About the property

Double bedroom and 1 sofabed in an historic building overlooking a canal.

This lovely apartment is located 5 minutes from the Rialto bridge and the fish and vegetable market. It is part of the Palazzo Albrizzi historical complex and belongs to the Albrizzi family since the 18th century. Its windows overlook the 'Rio de Madoneta'. The flat has been recently restored and the original 18th century stucco work makes it a really cosy place. S.Marco square is only 10 mins walking as well as the most important museums and churches such as St. Marks Square, Accademia, Cà Rezzonico, S.Maria Gloriosa dei Frari (Titian paintings) and Scuola di S.Rocco (Tintoretto). 2 sofabeds in the living room are convenient if you have a child or a extra friend coming to visit. The flat has a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with a shower. All linens are provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Giulio,

We really enjoyed our stay in your elegant and historic apartment, and found it so conveniently close to everywhere - an oasis in ther heart of the city! On the Sunday we were on the Rialto bridge to see lots of the rowing boats returning which was a nice way to round off our last day.

Thank you and best regards

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

If you love Venice you will love this property - centrally located and yet tucked away in a peaceful corner - ancient and beautiful!!

If you dont know Venice very well you will love this property - romantic and close to main sights - and with fantastic directions provided by the owner (so no chance of getting lost)!!

Well equipped, clean and charming apartment with the added bonus of the owner on sight and available to assist with any enquiry.

We spent a perfect 4 days here and returned home with recharged batteries. We would not hesitate to recommend the property to any fellow traveller. We would definately return again and again.

Thank you to G and B for your warm welcome.

Magical 3 nights!

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful Venetian-style apartment in a quiet local neighborhood. Side canal right outside the window with gondolas passing occasionally. Close to shops, restaurants and vapporetto stops. 5 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge. Comfortable bed and furnishings. Would highly recommend to all but those who might have trouble up the 64 steps to the apartment!

Charming, quiet and lovely apartment in Venice filled with character, comfort, and convenience...

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a recent stay at the Albrizzi apt so much. The apartment is well outfitted with a comfortable bed, all kitchen implements needed whether you want to make coffee or a full meal. Laundry facilities make it easy to pack lighter than you might if you were staying at a hotel, and the apartment is within easy reach of all cultural activities Venice is so well known for. I recommend this apt highly!

Good location but with bed bugs!

  • 2 of 5

The location of this flat can't be beat. It's in a quiet area just off the main streets that lead to Rialto bridge. However, my husband and I stayed for 3 nights and developed bites all over our bodies that resembled bed bugs! We ended up sleeping separately on the two couches. I would NOT stay here unless you confirm with the owner that there are no more bed bugs. Also, it's hot with only 1 small fan.

A simply amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Giulio's apartment for 5 nights in June and what an absolutely perfect place it is. A very spacious property located 5 minutes from Rialto Bridge but tucked away enough to be off the beaten track for tourists. Steeped in history, all of the rooms are big and comfortable and the only sounds are from gondaleers passing below the windows.

The owner is a perfect gentleman, who told us about the building and surrounding area. We fell in love with the apartment and Venice overall immediately. And we are already planning our return journey!

The flat is located in the Rialto bridge area. It's a 10 minutes walking to get to Piazza S. Marco and Palazzo Ducale. A waterbus stop is 5 minutes away, but there are so many things you can reach just walking ! The Frari Cathedral and S. Rocco School. The Accademia and, if you are interested in modern and contemporary art the Guggenheim Museum and Palazzo Grassi.

Rialto is a very lively place. Ther's a fish and vegetable market every morning, and an endless choice of restaurants and wineries where you can enjoy some delicious and savoury finger food along with a glass of prosecco wine.
