Venice in May
Submitted: June 19, 2011
Stayed: May 2011
We visited Venice in the middle of May and the apartment was very easy to find from the alilaguna stop at Madonna dell'Orto. We called Sergio and he met us and took us to the apartment. it was exactly as described and viewed on the website - clean, comfortable and with every convenience for our stay. There were mosquito screens fitted at all the windows which was marvellous, as you could have the windows open and not be bothered by them.
The location was ideal, being around a 20 minute walk to the Rialto, near enough to the centre, but far enough away to enjoy peaceful evenings. There were restaurants and bars nearby, though we cooked in the apartment most evenings. There was a supermarket a short walk away and Sergio gave us very good directions to find it.There is also a good bakery nearby with delicious bread.
We found that the best way of seeing Venice was to set out early in the morning before the other tourists, and watch it come to life - this was very special and we felt priviledged to see it this way. We would highly recommend a visit to Burano to see the coloured houses - much quieter than Venice and very charming. A visit to the Rialto market is a must, especially to buy food for dinner - the fish market was unbelievable ...
We would thoroughly recommend this apartment to friends and hope to enjoy another stay here before too long.
