Pietro was so wonderful to meet us at our train and as it was raining, he had very thoughtfully provided umbrella's for our family! As we walked to the apartment, Pietro pointed out different sights and gave us a better understanding of Venice. The apartment is spectacular - all things necessary for a first-class accommodation were provided and then some! The apartment is even better than the photo's! We loved the location and being able to be a "local" and still easily walk to all the sites! I would easily come back to this apartment - the AC and wifi worked fabulously and the beds were extra comfortable - we all slept very well. Grocery right around the corner as well as many restaurants and shops. Kids loved watching the World Cup and did not want to leave Venice! Pietro is very responsive and helpful - knowledgeable about what guests want for a great Holiday!
