We've been about 8 times to Venice, renting different apartments and believe me, you can't beat this apartment's location. Close to the fabulous outdoor market, close to convenience shops, close to the Grand Canal and the Rialto is a major transport hub. This area is a mix of tourists and locals. For a genuine Venetian aperitivo, try a spritz at "Al Mercà" near the erberia. We're going to miss this place. For the younger people like us, there is even a bit of nightlife with bars not too far away. But don't worry, the apartment is quiet and you won't be disturbed by noise from the street.
The apartment itself was very nice. The romantic decoration in the bedroom is a nice touch. The bathroom is modern and the shower has good temperature control and enough pressure, something no so common in Venetian apartments.
We were really pleased with our stay at this apartment !
