Historic San Marco Penthouse Apartment is the perfect location for your holiday: here you will have the possibility to spend your Venetian days in a unique and fascinating location. 

This large, airy and bright, non-smoking apartment is located on the third (last) floor, in a 500 year old architecturally-significant Palazzo. 

Renovated by a famous architect, the apartment is designed to create different spaces within it's wide open area: the wide living area with couch, chaise longues and armchairs; two cozy spaces with desks; a fully-equipped gourmand kitchen; a TV/Reading corner with a queen size sleep sofa and opposite a corner that accommodates two single beds (which can be pushed together to function as a King bed). 

The master bedroom with Queen bed is totally separated from other spaces and is located in the opposite side, compared to the position of the single beds.

The penthouse has two complete bathrooms: one with a shower and one with a tub (we did renovations in March 2014).

The apartment is equipped with all the modern comforts and facilities ,including air conditioning (Central Air Unit controllable in 4 zones), independent heating, free wifi internet connection, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave oven...

In this very unusual and spacious Venetian property, very quite and silent, you have the possibility to relax after an exciting day and also take small daily breaks since it's literally within steps of the most popular sights, shops, and restaurants in San Marco.

Thanks to its central location you can easily reach Piazza San Marco and the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Bridge of Sighs in a few minutes walk. You'll have the opportunity to visit the monuments in the early morning, when they are not too crowded or you can be enchanted by the magic of Piazza San Marco in the night, with the orchestras playing. From the penthouse in 5-10 minutes walking you reach Rialto, Academia, Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Piazza Santo Stefano, etc.

In the immediate neighborhood you'll find a souvenir shop, pharmacy, pâtisserie, newspaper stand, coffee shop, good restaurant and bars, little grocery shop, fruit and vegetable shop, and also all the high fashion shops of the best Italian labels, that are located in this area of Venice.

The apartment is perfect for short or long term stays.

                                                        Fantastic apartment!

                                                        C. J.

                                                        Our family of five recently stayed in this wonderful apartment and we all LOVED it!!! It was my kids' favorite rental ever! Very unique penthouse apartment with all of the comforts of home. Everything was prepared for our family of five and we were very comfortable. The location was fantastic and we were able to walk everywhere. Highly recommend!

                                                        Unique apartment with great Venice location

                                                        Jim G.

                                                        Very unique apartment with a great location near San Marco, lots of stairs but it comes with the territory. I can’t imagine there are a lot of apartments in Venice that don’t involve stairs. Host and his welcoming person Bernadette were pleasant to deal with.

                                                        I probably would not recommend this place for very tall folks however due to the design.

                                                        Tolle Lage, wunderbare Wohnung, Heizung, Klimaanlage- alles vorhanden.

                                                        Alexandra B.

                                                        Unbedingt buchen!!!

                                                        Nice penthouse apartment in Venice

                                                        Charles M.

                                                        The apartment was conveniently located near St Mark's Square, which you can see from one of the operable windows in the ceiling. This apartment was very spacious, which allowed us to spread out. We enjoyed having two bathrooms and a separate area to relax for music listening. We did not use the kitchen but it was well equipped. I few negatives; some of the light bulbs need to be changed and the slanted ceilings can be tough on taller people. Note: Be prepared for climbing a few stairs. Overall this is a good apartment with a lot of style. And the price was reasonable compared to others in the area. I would recommend.

                                                        No Air Conditioning!

                                                        Giovanni Gaidoni

                                                        Venice in a summer heat-wave, penthouse apartment, no air-conditioning. Don't always believe what you read. Shame though, as the apartment would have been okay otherwise. We did receive an insignificant refund but that's not the point is it. We'd had to buy our own electric fans to keep cool, which we kindly left for the next unsuspecting occupants. Not acceptable.

                                                        Breathtakingly Sunning

                                                        Anna R.

                                                        This gorgeous penthouse quickly became our "home" in Venice. Its unique spacious architectural design allows for a relatively big group to live very comfortably with one another while simultaneously providing a warm, comfy environment that brings the family closer. It is also conveniently located very close to the San Marco plaza, and the view from the windows were spectacular. Staying here was truly a delight for all of us, and we hope to come back!
