The flat is located in the central area of Rialto (the famous bridge crossing the Grand Canal, main water way of the city) right in the heart of Venice . A very good location to walk everywhere to the main sites.
At only few steps there is the Grand Canal:you can enjoy a gondola ride simply by crossing the canal with local Venetian people.
The flat has a small terrace with table and chairs with a nice view on the roof tops of Venice.
This is the oldest bridge and spans the Grand Canal. It probably dates back to 1172 and was originally in wood. In 1557 the Venetian Republic put out a tender for rebuilding the bridge in stone. The architects who competed for the tender includes Palladio and Sanmichieli. The tender was awarded by Antonio da Ponte and in 1591 the bridge was inaugurated.
Church of S. Giacometto.
Perhaps the oldest church in Venice. It is still laid out in the form of a Greek cross. Opposite, we have the 'Gobbo di Rialto' which was built by Pietro da Salò in 1541. Next to it, there is the 'Pietra del bando' from which the decrees of the Venetian Republic were read out. This was the commercial heart of Venice, where merchants met to hammer out their agreements and where the Banco Giro was located. This bank was already in existence in the twelfth century and enabled credit to circulate San Polo Square.
It gives its name to the district.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We stayed in this aparment for 3 nights and absolutely loved it. The location is perfect, vaporetto stop 200 metres away, realto market and a lot of nice shopes in close vicinity and a great trattoria Cantina de Spade in the next building. The apartment is equipped with everything you need for a comfort stay, we were met and greeted by the russian speaking representative of the owner and got a lot of useful advises from her. The terrace is so calm and tranquile - it is a real bliss after noisy streets full of tourists.
