Luca is a wonderful host, courteous and helpful. He responded to all my emails and texts very promptly, which was reassuring as this was my first time booking accommodation this way, in Italy. The apartment is exactly as you see it in the photographs. It is spacious, clean and very comfortable. The three flights of stairs up to it were managed by us well, four ladies in their 50's and 60's!! There is an excellent shop just underneath the apartment selling everything you need for self catering. There are several restaurants nearby should you prefer to eat out, which we did and enjoyed. The train station is just a few minutes walk away, as is the bus station and the vaporetto stop which enables you to travel down the Grand Canal or out to the islands (Murano, Burano and Torcello) Venice is much easier to walk around than we envisaged ( first visit to the city) and the apartment is not too far from the main attractions, but away from the hustle and bustle of all the tourists. I highly recommend the apartment if you want comfort, space and a taste of Venetian life.
Thank you Luca, we enjoyed everything about our stay in Venice.
