Enjoy a delightful, sun-filled rooftop apartment in the most desirable area of Venice. The interior is classy and the altana terrace, up a few steps from the living room, is glorious. From that perch take in the domes of San Marco, the rooftops of the city. If that weren't enough, just below are two canals where gondolas glide to and fro. You won't regret the hours you can spend just watching the pace of life on Venetian canals.

The 'Serenata' apartment is steps from Piazza San Marco, world-famous Saint Marks Piazza, with the eponymous Basilica. The large piazza flows with life with locals meet and greet as well as with rivers of tourists. You can pause to enjoy classical music and a very special cup of coffee in one of the outdoor cafés. Wander along canal side streets, over a few bridges and there you are.

This location is so central, you can easily reach all the wonders of Venice, returning during the day to drop packages and rest your feet.

The building is on a quiet calle or Venetian street. The main door is locked for security. The lobby is large and clean. At this level is a shared laundry room. Serenata is on the 5th Floor (American designation), 4th Italian and an elevator rises all the way.

Experience happy first impressions as you step into the large, light filled living room. Windows overlook canals. There is lots of room in the living room with a sofa bed for one and love seat as well as some really pretty pieces of furniture. A statue of a moor shows the way to the steps to the terrace. Fine design sense pulls all these interesting things together.

The television receives Italian channels, no satellite reception.

In the opposite direction is a large dining space next to the kitchen. The owner is an enthusiastic cook and has made sure that when she spends a weekend in Venice, everything she needs is present in the kitchen.

A short hallway leads to the bedroom with the ensuite bathroom on the immediate right. The bathroom has just been redone all in white tiled curves. A corner shower has glass doors.

The bedroom is not large but has a wall of closets so it is totally functional. The bedroom and bathroom fit under eves, so have a slanted wall, but the eves aren't so deep that you have to duck to move around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time at la Serenata. Just steps from San Marco, the location was central to all the major sights. A gondola stop was just below and provided much entertainment from the terrace. Everything was provided, even dishwashing and laundry soap. Having a dedicated washing machine was a bonus; no waiting for others to finish a load. The Co-op was handy for groceries, but the Rialto market was also only a short walk. Here one finds the freshest fish, seafood, fruit and vegetables in the city. We would certainly recommend the apartment, nonetheless our summer stay was made less comfortable by the extreme heat in the bathroom and its lack of a ceiling fan. We're sure this isn't a problem at other times of the year. Buon Viaggio!

The location and amenities of this apartment were great! Unfortunately it rained while we were there and we did not get to enjoy the terrace as much as wanted. Fantastic location. Great windows all around for grand canal viewing! Definitely would stay again. Kitchen has everything you needed to make small meals and breakfast.

Could not be better!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place in a wonderful location. My wife & I had a great time. The Serenata apartment was very comfortable and the terrace was just fantastic, we spent a lot of time on it listening to the sounds of the gondolas, the bells and the people. The apartment was in a perfect location. We will stay here again someday.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

Sorry for what may seem like hyperbole but this is a pretty magical place in a beautiful otherworldly city. Watching gondolas from the terrace while sipping my morning coffee. There is no other place like this! Strolling the ancient streets and bridges. It was warm out but the a/c worked fine inside. The apartment is bright and pretty. Italy Perfect is Perfect.

Absolutely Charming

  • 5 of 5

The Serenata apartment was absolutely charming, warm and beautiful. We really felt like locals staying there. It was fun walking down a sidestreet and entering the building while the few stray tourists looked at us enviously! Right across the way was a beautiful outdoor dining area that was part of a nearby hotel, perfect for a relaxing glass of wine and chichetti. Our terrace overlooked one of the smaller canals and we had our breakfast each day while watching the delivery boats and the gondolas below-sometimes hearing the gondoliers' serenade. The bed was super comfortable and the furnishings were lovely. The shower was great and we were surprised that the water pressure was so good, given that we had heard otherwise about European water pressure. The church bells rang throughout the day and we were in heaven. The only note of caution is that the two steps up to the terrace might be precarious for some, but if you watch the doorway height, you'll be fine, and the very charming greeter, Paola, was smart enough to hang an ornament from the top of the doorway just to be sure!. We certainly wish we were still at the Serenata!

The apartment was perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here on our first leg of a three leg trip to Italy. This apartment was perfect! It was so close to San Marco square with great restaurants and shops. The apartment has a great balcony that we used to have coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. You can see gondolas pass by and listen to the noises of the boats as they deliver their wares throughout the city. Our greeter was so helpful with information about the apartment and surrounding area. I would absolutely recommend this apartment and Italy Perfect!

Clean, Spacious and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We wanted somewhere to sum up the essence of Venice and this apartment provided just that. The location was central providing easy access to shops, restaurants and sites. The roof terrace was perfect for people watching, listening to the bells, relaxing and generally soaking up the atmosphere. Watching and listening to the gondoliers was fascinating to the extent that we just popped downstairs to book one! The greeter, Paola, was just the loveliest person who showed us the local store and gave helpful tips about the appliances and mosquitoes and good eateries. Booking was straightforward with attention to detail given. Would definitely recommend Italy Perfect to a friend. The apartment was clean, spacious, comfortable and the décor was lovely. The only downside was the humidity and mosquitoes but the location and roof terrace more than made up for that. Would definitely recommend to a friend and also want to go back ourselves!
