Overview

About the property

Only minutes from the Grand Canal, Rialto & St Marks

Our flat in Ca’ Amadi is just minutes from the vaporetto stop at Rialto (lines 1 & 2), a short journey down the Grand Canal from the main arrival points of Piazzale Roma and the Ferrovia (railway station). A truly magical way in which to arrive!

Ca'Amadi overlooks a very quiet and private Corte (with its 15th century well), yet is only minutes from the bustling Rialto Bridge and the Market. St Mark’s square (San Marco) is about 10 easy minutes away on foot.

The apartment sleeps 2 - 4 adults comfortably (with an extra sofa bed in the living area), and is available throughout the year for a minimum of 3 nights. It is an ideal base for weekend or short breaks.

Although popular throughout the year, we particularly recommend visits in the quieter months of February, March and November.

“In the winter, Venice is like an abandoned theatre. The play is finished, but the echoes remain”.

Ca'Amadi lies on the edge of the sestiere (district) of Cannaregio, a local residential area and a true ‘Venetian’s Venice’, with a wealth of food and artisan shops, bars and restaurants.

Vaporetti for the outlying Islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello leave from the Fondamente Nuove, again a short walk away.

Close by, across the Rialto Bridge are the spectacular daily fish and vegetable markets.

..... for exploring Venice. Set in quiet courtyard, but only a little off the beaten track; it is beautifully furnished and fitted out. Everyone has been so helpful and friendly.

Venice – La Serenissima - the most magical city on earth………….

On the edges of the sestieri of Cannaregio, Castello and San Marco, Ca'Amadi is extremely convenient for the city’s main attractions, all of which are in easy walking distance. Equally, the quieter residential areas, with shops, bars and restaurants can easily be found close by and ‘off the beaten path’.

From the busy Campo San Bartolomeo, a street leads north towards the Church of San Giovanni Crisostomo, off which is the square of the Teatro Malibran, one of the city’s major venue for classical concerts. The Corte Ca’Amadi lies just to one side. Nearby is the house where Marco Polo lived.

Vaporetti for the outlying Islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello leave from the Fondamente Nuove, again a short walk away.

Close by, across the Rialto Bridge are the spectacular daily fish and vegetable markets and the residential sestieri of Dorsoduro and San Polo.

Tranquil retreat in central Venice

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a four night stay in this quiet, well equipped apartment situated in an ideal central location.

We were met by Marco at The Rialto Bridge on our arrival from the airport by water taxi. He escorted us on the short walk to the apartment where he explained how everything worked and gave advice on how to find the nearest supermarket for immediate essentials.

There was an abundance of information available in the apartment on sight seeing and restaurants etc., most major sights being within easy walking distance as well as Vaporetto stops to the Islands.

We do recommend a visit to Teatro La Fenice if at all possible.

An oasis in the heart of Venice

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a quiet location, yet only minutes from the heart of Venice. it is ideal location to visit all the sites of Venice and to shop daily for fresh food from the Rialto market. The layout of the apartment is ideal for two couples or a family as you can spread out over the two floors. The simple but well equipped kitchen allows you to cook the heavenly food from the market and other local shops close by. We return time and time again as you will never tire if Venice and its many secrets.

Excellent flat in a central location.

  • 5 of 5

We were met from the water bus by a representative who was fantastic and provided us with lots of information in the short walk to the flat which helped us plan and make the most of our 3 days.

The flat was in a perfect location and we walked round the majority of the city, only using the water transport to visit the islands.

The information provided in the flat by the owners,along with that provided by the them prior to our arrival was very helpful and informative. We had a fantastic time, with the gondola ride being the highlight for all of us.

Lovely well equipped flat in central Venice

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely long weekend in Ca'Amadi this July. Conveniently situated near the Rialto, the flat was easy to get to from all directions - this was particularly handy with a baby, as we were working our sightseeing around nap times/feeding etc and were in and out a lot.

The flat is very well equipped, we made a few meals from produce bought at the market and we found all the various kitchen utensils needed to do so, and more! It is clean, comfortable and quiet and you can sense the owners' love for Venice in the flat and its furnishings. The flat has lots of guide books and local tips and maps compiled by the owners to help you plans and get the most out f your trip. That was my third visit to Venice, and I'm not excluding a 4th at some point, back at Ca Amadi!

3 Nights in Venice

  • 4 of 5

Perfectly placed near the Rialto bridge. We were met from the water taxi (next to Rialto) and shown to the apartment - a mere 5 minute walk. Apartment was clean and well maintained and had everything we needed for our short stay. To be noted is that the upstairs double bedroom and ensuite are in the attic and therefore you do have to stoop to avoid a bumped head - however that is just part of the charm. Only piece of advice when visiting Venice is to bring comfy footwear!
