An initial Message instead of a direct booking Request would be appreciated as it would allow to introduce themselves and receive complete informations (full brochure) with no pressure.

Part of a XVI Cent. finely restored building, in the heart of the most central and elegant part of Venice, we propose you Lyra, a refined 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms apart. A distinctive XVI Cent. private courtyard (Corte Zorzi) allows access to the building letting them a agreable brightness within a perfect noise sheltering (really poor in pedestrian Venice anyway). The location is just behind Saint-Mark square yes, but in a quiet hidden corner where just few tourists arrives. Despite to its fully central position the area is not a massive tourist path and still preserves flavours and sensations of times gone by.

Just out of the courtyard u will find a small nice venetian square, Campo San Gallo, with a pleasant open-air cafè where u can have both a coffee/drink or a light meal, and an even small charming theatre, Teatro San Gallo, where every day u could attend entertaining shows telling about the Great stories of Venice (English language).

Leaving the Campo and crossing a small bridge u will find Bacino Orseolo, the main starting point for every kind of Gondolas tours.

Finally, aparts position and features let Lyra a perfect getaway to easily visit the whole Venice without wasting energies precious time with transfers, everything is around u. Perfect accomodation for both self-catering and visiting Lyra is a de luxe aparts in the beaty hearth of Venice.

Perfect location! Great service!

  • 5 of 5

The property management group was wonderful to work with! Matilde met us at the water taxi and walked us back to the apart. It is a great location, walking distance to everything and the accomodations were perfect for our group (two couples in their 30's). We were given wonderful suggestions on food/drink/gelato and visited all of them! I highly recommend this apart to anyone traveling to Venice!

Fantastic Location Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to Venice very late (11:30pm) Matilda met us at the water bus stop and brought us to the beautiful apartment. We had 2 couples and the rooms were large and clean. Each bathroom was perfect. The location could not have been better. Highly recommend !

Great location and perfect for two couples

  • 5 of 5

The location to St. Marks square and surrounding amenities is truly a plus. We were met at the Rialto Bridge and walked to our apartment. There is no way you could find this place on your own! There is no lift, but you only have to drag your suitcases up the 52 steps once. There is a little bit of a learning curve to the washer/dryer combo, but the instruction book in several languages is there. Doing laundry is a slow process, but it means you can pack less. We had a problem with the 18 character password for the Wi-Fi and I couldn't get the app "WhatsApp" to work to contact Roberto. I had to call my daughter in the US and she got in touch with him and he came right over and helped us. The bedrooms are strategically located to allow for privacy. My one suggestion would be for some type of table to put the coffee maker on. I would recommend this apartment and welcome any questions you may have!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our location was perfect!!! We were close to everything we wanted to do! The place was spotless, well organized and attended to. We were met by a lovely woman with tons of energy and suggestions of things to be sure to do. I am ready to return but have to wait till next summer! Terrific!!!!!

Steps away from San Marco, but quiet.

  • 5 of 5

You could not get closer to San Marco than this apartment, yet you are in a quiet courtyard that is a relief from the thousands of tourists moving through San Marco. You are only about 15 minutes from the Rialto boat transfer points so this is an apartment that is in a perfect location. It is as advertised, you can trust the photo's.

The four of us enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again. It was clean, priced fairly, quiet, lots of windows, only a few flights of stairs up to the third floor.

Incredible location

  • 5 of 5

Two middle aged couples our second visit to Venice (the first when we were students). We looked for a fully central but quiet 2 doubles and 2 bathrooms and we found this. Description was perfect Reviews were too so we decided for it. Now, with knowledge, we can say everything is as described and 100% correspondent. We found a really really nice apartment, clean, quiet and perfectly furnished. The two doube bedrooms were spacious and the inside bathrooms were perfect for a not necessary but anyway agreable intimacy. Satellite TV in every bedroom, as well as AC were a plus. The living area, separating the two bedrooms was bright and comfortable. The ronde table was useful as well as the fully equipped kitchen. Nice canal view from living’s windows. Finally the location was just perfect. We were just few steps behind Saint-Mark’s square but we felt as we were in a lonely venetian corner. In fact we discovered that there are (always the same) specific touristic paths in Venice and if your accomodation is far enough, also if lodged in the hearth of the Town u can anyway avoid hustle and bustle and enjoy a small veracious bite of this magical town . The best proof of it is this accomodation. Definitely recommended.
