About The Owner
I was born in Venice about 50 years ago. I have traveled in many countries but I'm always happy to come back to Venice, in particular to the Zattere area, because I love to live in this marvellous town, surrounded from the water. I really miss it when I stay away for long periods.
I'm not a professional photographer but I have always loved to take pictures since I was a kid. You can have a look to my photo web site (check the URL link to Giorgio Cichellero address).
I have partecipated in various workshops with leading Italian photographers as Gianni Berengo Gardin, Lucie Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2008, Franco Fontana and others.
Courses and workshops in Milan and Siena held by Canon.
I can organize photographic workshops for the apartment guests.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 1957
Why The Owner chose Dorsoduro
Standing in the balcony You can experiment the same emotions and views You could have beeing on the deck of one of the cruising ships You can see passing by in front of the apartment.windows.
Definitely an excellent solution for a memorable stay in Venice.
This is the part of Venice that I love even more because although this area is only 10 minutes from Piazza San Marco, which is always full of tourists, Zattere are more calm and always giving different emotions, depending on the day time. This part is always full of light, sun, water, colors .. and joggers. You can see the sun rise early in the morning and the evening sunset. Often, in front of the apartment, behind the Church of the Redeemer, you can observe, and be fascinated, from the rising moon. You can have the best time in Venice on every season of the year. Have a coffer, a delicious ice cream, an appetitive or a full meal (from pizza to the top quality fish restaurants in town). Just relax walking alongside the Giudecca Canal. You'll never forget these emotions. You'll never forget Zattere.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Giorgio's apartment was more than we could have asked for. The pictures here are beautiful yet they don't begin to capture the reality of this magnificent apartment. I might even go so far as to say this was the highlight of the trip - with three generations and 11 family members it's tough to satisfy everyone. Giorgio's apartment did just that. The location was incredible, the Vaporetti stop right in front gave us easy access to the islands and Giorgio himself provided a wealth of useful tips, the kind that separate a good host from a great one.
I highly recommend this apartment, I'd give it 6 stars if I could.
