Cannaregio Apartment Rental Photos and Description
5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8
This charming , exclusive apartment with all windows facing south overlooking a wide canal, is in a romantic, newly restored, typically Venetian Gothic palazzetto, just behind the famous Ca'd'Oro of which it is a copy in miniature. It is around the corner from the famous 18th Century Jesuit church with Domenico Rossi's extravagant interior of folds of damask rendered in coloured marble. Here you have the advantages of living in a historical listed building in the true Venice of the Venetians, and the use of a canoe for the unique experience of seeing Venice from the water.
From the apartment which is on the piano nobile up 20 steps you can take breakfast on the balcony overlooking the canal.
The central location of the apartment means that all Venetian amenities, theatres, swimming pool on the Guidecca, water sports on the Lido and all islands, Murano, Torcello etc are easily and cheaply accessible by vaporetto from the Fondamenta Nuova or the Ca'd'Oro vaporetto stop on the Gran Canal. Full instruction leaflet provided with tips and restaurant suggestions etc.
