It has high ceilings and an attractive living/dining room with a double sofa bed, dining furniture, traditional 'terrazzo' flooring and a wall almost entirely composed of floor-to-ceiling glazed doors flooding the room with light and opening directly onto a romantic columned balcony, a superb vantage point from which to observe the comings and goings along the 'Salizada' below. The kitchen, although rather tiny, is sufficiently equipped for light cooking while the double bedroom is large and stylishly fitted out with a comfortable king size bed, terrazzo flooring and an en-suite bathroom with bathtub and shower over.

This apartment worked well for two friends traveling together. The sofa in the living room is also a bed. The Views on Venice staff were excellent in meeting us, orienting us to the apartment, providing all the things we needed, and giving us information about Venice. This is my second time renting from Views on Venice and I highly recommend them. The washer was very convenient and there was a drying rack in the apartment also. The location is great and near the attractions of San Marco. Piazza San Samuele was very quiet and the market close by provided all that we needed for supplies. Having a freezer in the refrigerator allowed us to freeze our water bottles for the hot days of sight seeing.
Friendly staff to meet us and helped us when we had problems (lost wallet).
Excellent location - convient to walk or take the Vaporetto to anywhere in the city.
Comfortable accommodation, great kitchen.
A sunny and welcoming apartment on the second floor of a peaceful antique 17th century palazzo in the delightful San Samuele district - a calm and cultured neighbourhood with a gentle, upmarket buzz where galleries sit close to antique shops, well clear of the hustle and bustle yet a mere stone's throw to the Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art and the Campo Santo Stefano with its inviting outdoor cafes and local colour.
Steps away from the illustrious ‘Palazzo Mocenigo’ on the Grand Canal - the one time Venetian bolthole of ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know’ British romantic poet and literary figure, Lord Byron (1788-1824), and next door to ‘Casa Veronese’ - home of the outstanding 16th Century Italian Renaissance painter, Paolo Veronese (creator of ‘Wedding at Cana’ and ��Feast in the House of Levi’ which today hangs in the Accademia Academy of Fine Arts just across the nearby Accademia Bridge), Ca Grassi 2 is bright, cheerful and nicely furnished in modern style.
And, when you’re ready to venture forth and explore or re-visit the city’s countless charms, you’ll find two vaporetto stops just minutes away along with two ‘Traghettos’ which, during operating times (please check before making your journey), ferry passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal – one running between Calle Del Tragheto (near Sant’ Angelo) and San Toma in the district of San Polo and the other running between San Samuele and Ca’ Rezzonico and its Museum of 18th Century Art in Dorsoduro.
