Cannaregio Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Only minutes from the Grand Canal, Rialto & St Marks

Our flat in Ca’ Amadi is just minutes from the vaporetto stop at Rialto (lines 1 & 2), a short journey down the Grand Canal from the main arrival points of Piazzale Roma and the Ferrovia (railway station). A truly magical way in which to arrive!

Ca'Amadi overlooks a very quiet and private Corte (with its 15th century well), yet is only minutes from the bustling Rialto Bridge and the Market. St Mark’s square (San Marco) is about 10 easy minutes away on foot.

The apartment sleeps 2 - 4 adults comfortably (with an extra sofa bed in the living area), and is available throughout the year for a minimum of 3 nights. It is an ideal base for weekend or short breaks.

Although popular throughout the year, we particularly recommend visits in the quieter months of February, March and November.

“In the winter, Venice is like an abandoned theatre. The play is finished, but the echoes remain”.

Ca'Amadi lies on the edge of the sestiere (district) of Cannaregio, a local residential area and a true ‘Venetian’s Venice’, with a wealth of food and artisan shops, bars and restaurants.

Vaporetti for the outlying Islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello leave from the Fondamente Nuove, again a short walk away.

Close by, across the Rialto Bridge are the spectacular daily fish and vegetable markets.

..... for exploring Venice. Set in quiet courtyard, but only a little off the beaten track; it is beautifully furnished and fitted out. Everyone has been so helpful and friendly.

It was comfortable and well located. We soon felt at home and we appreciated the quietness that it provided after spending the day in the bustle of Venice. .

Just What We Were Looking For

This apartment was perfect for what we wanted. A quiet, central, charming, well equipped crash pad for 2 adults and 2 teens for our 3 day sightseeing in Venice after a relaxing week at a beach resort up the coast. The arrangments were 1st class, from swift responses from the owners and the large amount of information and guidebooks available at the apartment and the very friendly & efficient meet & greet service at Rialto taking us to the apartment.
The photos of the apartment show it exactly as it is, quiet location, very clean, comfortable beds (Twin + 2 singles to make double in attic), well equipped, nice bathroom, air-con etc. Attic bedroom is resticted headroom as photos and details indicated which may not suit some people but was fine for us as it was as we expected and the kids found it quite quirky and fun. The only small thing I'd change would be to swap the sofabed and wicker chairs in the living area for 2 more comfy sofas & a coffee table to make it more relaxing and cosy, however, being out sightseeing most of the time it was fine for us.
The location is very central & therefore handy for returning to midday after a morning's sightseeing for lunch (and cool down with air-con which was wonderful in the hot August Weather). In 3 days you can cover all of the regions of Venice on foot (though tiring - must have comfortable shoes). The views from the Campanile in St Mark's Square were well worth the 8 Euros each. The queues for the Basilica even at 9.30am put us off looking inside and the magnificent paintings in the Scuola Grande di San Rocco were superb. The Rialto fish & fruit markets are worth a visit even if you don't buy. The mask workshops-cum-shops in San Polo area are worth a visit & we found some nice inexpensive Trattorias just off Campo San Polo.
We were glad we waited until our 3rd day to have a Gondola ride (paid 80 Euros for 35 very enjoyable mins from Campo Santa Maria Formosa) as we knew by then what kind of experience we wanted it to be i.e. NOT ultra touristy around St Mark's, NOT in the fierce afternoon sunlight/heat, NOT in the choppy, noisy waters of the Grand Canal being watched by thousands of other tourists, but a peaceful, graceful glide around the quiet back canals early evening with an extremely friendly and informative Gondolier, making a perfect end to a truely wonderful first visit to Venice.

I had the pleasure of staying in Ca'Amadi with my husband and sons (7 and 12) in April 2009 for my 40th birthday. It was an experience I will never forget. The apartment is quite literally a few minutes walk away from the Rialto bridge making it ideal for sightseeing either on foot or on the vaparetto. There are some lovely shops, bars, cafes and restaurants within easy walking distance yet the apartment is wonderfully quiet and secluded in a small secure courtyard. The photographs of the apartment are an accurate representation. Both bedrooms are lovely spacious and airy. The attic room is charming, quiet and really comfortable. My sons loved the spiral staircase and the power shower! Ca' Amadi was immaculately clean and very well equipped containing everything we could have needed and more. I didn't do any serious cooking but there was everything one would need to do so, including a dishwasher for afterwards. There was a huge selection of guide books, maps and information which we really enjoyed reading. I really cannot fully express how much we all enjoyed our stay here. I would not hesitate to visit again (soon hopefully) and to recommend the place to others. I honestly cannot think of any criticisms; we loved the place and judging by the comments in the guest book everyone else who had stayed there felt the same way. This is a lovely apartment in a magnificent and unique place, go and experience it if you can, you will not be disappointed.

Stand up coffee

Two couples spent a week in late March and were impressed by the location, the central heating and the shower. The owners have provided lots of information about Venice including the D&K Venice and Italy guides. Excellent meet and greet service and only one bridge to go over from the Rialto vaporetto stop with our wheeled luggage and two sets of stairs. Great local cafe "Tizianos" for coffee, hot chocolate (gluten free) and snacks. Stand up coffee or chocolate at the bar at the start of the day and prosseco at the end of the day was great value as were the staff. Well equiped with such extras as a wheeled shopping trolley. Two local supermarkets and lots of shops, kindly marked on the waterproof map provided. Also very close to the fish and veg/fruit market.

Only downsides were the lack of a washing machine (for longer stays), the narrow spiral staircase to the upper bedroom and the low height in the upper bedroom and bathroom which meant could only stand upright (5 foot six inches) in the actual apex area. However I suspect teenagers would find it interesting. Second telly in the upper bedroom. All beds very comfortable (did not use the sofa bed) and no disturbing noises from traffic!
