El Fogher was the perfect place for our 5 night stay in Venice. Accommodations were as shown in the listing, overlooking a small canal and right across from the Basilica dei Frari (definitely worth a visit inside). We were welcomed by Franco the manager who was just wonderful and made us so welcome.
The apartment is very central and we were able to walk to most places we wanted to visit. There is a supermarket just around the corner and several restaurants and bars close by. We did buy a 2 day pass on the Vaparetto (water buses) and had a lot of fun using them to go all around Venice and over to the islands of Murano and Burano (worth a visit for sure). The people in Venice were wonderful and exploring all the cafes and bars was delightful - try the cichetti (small snacks) and half liter of vino rosso for an inexpensive treat sitting outside and people watching. We splurged on lunch at The Florian restaurant in St Marks Square with the orchestra playing - check the menu prices and surcharges before committing to your order!
