The style of care, the intense brightness, the oak beams, the gondolas and the Grand Canal ... give this little garret a unique charm.
The small bright Attic is located in a charming location in the 'Campo de la Pescaria', where every day (except Sundays) is held the lively and picturesque Market Town of Fish and Vegetables. This is the only one Venetian 'Campo' (Square) which leans out on the Grand Canal and, delimited to the right by the 'Fabbriche Nuove' of Jacopo Sansovino, it looks at the Ca' d'Oro'.
Just look out the windows to find yourselves in a typical Venetian atmosphere, to observe the passage of gondolas and motor boats and to enjoy the beauty of the palaces on the water. Gone out of the apartment it is us in the heart of the City: bars, 'bacari', pubs and restaurants...
The central location allows you to easily reach in few minutes some of the most famous monuments, including the Basilica dei Frari and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
Overcome the Rialto Bridge, a walk of 10 minutes leads through the 'Mercerie'' ('Marzarie' in Venetian), that is the main commercial artery of the City with its system of 'calli' (where shops of luxury and boutiques of high fashion they lean out, from Gucci to Cartier, from Vuitton to Bulgari...), up to Piazza San Marco.
The Island of Lido, the exclusive beach of Venice, a true treasure chest of Liberty, where every year is taking place the Venice International Film Festival, it is connected to the City and to the mainland by efficient boats, 'vaporetti' and ferry calling at its main ports.
In the 'Campo de la Pescaria' there is the Stop 'Rialto Mercato' for the Vaporetto Line 1 (mt. 50.00 from the apartment), which allows you to visit the entire City and the Lido, the Beach of Venice, and there is the 'St. Sofia' Gondola Service (mt. 20.00,) that allows you to cross the Grand Canal and reach the other bank of the channel, and that, together, make very easy to access to the apartment.
