Wonderful apartment in an excellent location
My family (three people) spent five nights in this comfortable apartment in the San Paolo section of Venice. The apartment is located in a mostly residential area at the end of a small street overlooking one of the many canals in Venice. This put us out of noise of the main street while providing the sounds of water and gondolas.
While the apartment is on the small side, it was clean and very comfortable. (In general, space is at a premium in Venice; I don’t think there are many large apartments in the entire city) It has a complete kitchen, including a dishwasher. It also has air conditioning, which is a great relief during Italian summers.
There is a small well-stocked supermarket literally a minute’s walk from the apartment. There are also many restaurants and shops nearby. The San Toma Vaporetto and traghetto piers are about 5 minutes away.
While it is often mentioned that the location is close to the Rialto Bridge, Venice is such a small city that if you have a good sense of direction (essential for Venice) you can walk practically anywhere from the apartment. We were able to walk to both the train station and to the Guggenheim Museum (we did need a traghetto to cross the Grand Canal).
We enjoyed staying in this apartment during our time in Venice. I wholeheartedly recommend it.
