We just returned from a family vacation to Rome and Venice. While in Venice, we stayed at the Lion's Head apartments and they exceeded our expectations. We were two families of four and a group of two, so we rented apartments 2, 3 and 4 for four nights each. From the minute we arrived in Venice, we knew it was going to be a good trip. Marco called us to confirm our arrival by train, and then met us at the Rialto vaparetto stop to walk us to the apartments. The building is perfectly situated between the Rialto bridge and St. Mark's square, so you will be just a short walk from all of the main attractions. The apartments are generously-sized, clean, well-maintained and well-appointed -- two bedrooms, complete kitchen, full bath, washing machine, air-conditioning and wi-fi. Apartments 2, 3 and 4 are accessible by stairs or elevator. Marco, and his assistant Irene, explained all of the feautres and walked us through the operation of everything. Best of all, he left us with a list of recommended restaurants. We tried three of his suggestions for dinner -- Ristorante Rosa Rossa, Antica Birraria La Corte, and Muro Frari, and they were all excellent. Honestly, you should plan your meals around them. However, there is also supermarket (Coop) nearby, so you can have meals in the apartment as well. We ate breakfast in, and also had water, snacks and wine on hand for drinks in the late afternoon. On the day we were leaving, Marco returned to check us out, and helped us get back to the vaparetto to take us to the train. We had a wonderful visit and would definitely recommend this rental to other travelers.
