Very romantic studio, sunny, in the heart of Dorsoduro, near Campo Santa Margherita in the heart of the student district of Venice. Wi-Fi included.
The studio has windows on three sides, a loft with queen size bed, air conditioning, very nice, quiet and with a strong character. I lived there as a student!
The studio has a private garden, wonderful for breakfast or just for a relaxing overnight. Open space on two levels, spacious, sunny, pleasant.
The neighborhood is very lively: a student area with shops, restaurants and attractions. All services are very close: banks, supermarket, bar, ATM, pharmacies. Museums and tourist attractions nearby (Accademia, San Rocco). Lovely walks in the area. Very well connected to public transport and close (5/6 minute walk) to Piazzale Roma, 10/12 minutes from the station.
Dorsoduro is one of the six sestieri of Venice. On 12 December 2007 were 15 586 inhabitants (including the Giudecca 4763 1535 Sacca Fisola.) The name comes from its stable ground (literally 'hard back'), less muddy than elsewhere. It is bordered to the north by the sestiere of Santa Croce and San Polo, Rio Ca 'Foscari and the Rio Malcanton, on the east by the Grand Canal, South includes the Giudecca Canal and the island of the same name that is administratively attached sestiere while possessing civic numbering. Dorsoduro is connected to sestiere of San Marco by the Accademia Bridge.
Dorsoduro begins with the Punta della Dogana, which takes its name from the fact that here was the duty of Venice. the last zone has recovered area which extends between the sea and the monastery (in practice, where today is the basilica di Santa Maria della Salute).

Rome was not built in a day or two, however, if you do not have a choice, we recommend that you do not want too see.
The tour that we offer is exhaustive, we point out some buildings "secondary" (in green on the maps) on your journey, you can avoid if you are short on time or do not want to rush you. DAY 1 or DAY 2, can also be done in two days to enjoy a bit of Roman life (in fact we recommend it)
This program remains a suggestion of course. Choose to visit what you like about the proposed road. Eventually, let us know your comments and suggestions (contact @ rome roma-net.) To improve this document and itinerary.
To conclude this introduction, and frankly, do not forget to take the time to La Dolce Vita, by asking the terraces to enjoy ice cream, coffee or cappuccino :) This is much nicer than a route :)
We recommend that you begin your discovery of Rome by the Basilica of St. John Lateran, one of the four great Roman basilicas, which is also cathedral of the Pope as Bishop of Rome. Amongst others we may admire the Gothic canopy and the cloister. Outside are the Scala Santa (Holy Stairs), and the largest Egyptian obelisks in Rome.
Down the Via San Giovanni in Lateranno, is the Basilica of Saint Clement, one of the most characteristic churches of Rome's history, since it is composed of three levels, each of which date from a time in the city, the lowest is the first century of our era.
Continuing the street, you arrive at the famous Colosseum. You can avoid domestic tour, due to time and its moderate interest. Next, admire the majestic Arch of Constantine, the fourth century, which includes elements from older Roman buildings.
The most interesting is the crossing of the Roman Forum that you can still walk along the Via dei Fori Imperiali if you do not have the ticket. (The ticket is combined with a visit to the Colosseum, the Palatine and Roman Forum).
Explore the forums, its vestiges and buildings dating back to the early days of the Roman Republic (-fourth - first centuries).
After forums, after Arch of Septimius Severus, exit left and climb Capitol Hill (in front, from the left). Before reaching the place you can enjoy one of the finest views on the forums.
This hill is where according to legend, Rome was founded by Romulus. Since the early days of the city, a huge temple dedicated to Jupiter crowned it, but it is long gone.
The current Capitol Square was designed by Michelangelo, the center stands a bronze equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius (copy of original).
It is home to the city of Rome and an important museum of Roman antiquities, the Capitoline Museum.
Cross carefully to get to the other side of the building where you will join the Imperial Forums, which you can locate by ancient column that stands on its side.
You will notice the impressive avenue that joins the Colosseum, Via dei Fori Imperiali, which was the work of the Mussolini era when there was little interest important remains of the imperial forums that are now under the floor.
Trajan's Forum, was the largest of the Imperial Forums in Rome.
Visit the Pantheon, the Via del Corso. You can go through the Church of the Gesu, the first Jesuit church in Rome, whose frescoes are admirable. Then, in the church of St Ignatius Loyola di, the second Jesuit church of the city, also baroque, you can admire a trompe l'oeil dome which is actually a painting, and beautiful frescoes of Andrea Pozzo.
