San Marco Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Lovely flat with balcony on the Merceria dell' Oralagio sleeps 5

St Mark Residence is a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom comfortable apartment beside the World Famous St Mark's Square.We are on the Merceria dell'Oralagio with a balcony in the heart of Venice.

Recently refurbished, it affords the visitor tranquility in the very centre of this exciting and unique city. Listen to Vivaldi as you sip prosecco on the terrace under the watchful eye of St Mark on the glorious domes of the Basilica and relax at the end of a perfect day of sightseeing and exploring the dazzling array of unique attractions that is magical Venice. Enjoy the orchestras in the St Mark's Piazza at nighttime en route to a romantic stroll along the waterfront and gaze at the Laguna.

The two bathrooms allow two couples to share and a fifth guest can be accommodated behind a screen in the living room. Enjoy the many restaurants and bars in the heart of Venice and if you feel like eating in, the compact kitchen (newly installed in 2012) will allow you serve the lovely local produce found in the local shops and markets. Avail of the balcony and eat outside and watch the gunmetal Moors on the Clock Tower keeping time as they have done for centuries! The Merceria dell'Oralagio, our street is an amazing mixture of designer shops, with eyecatching displays showcasing beautiful Italian crafts like the

locally produce Murano Glass. It is the main entrance to the world renowned St Mark's Square and yet has the advantage of peaceful evenings and the chance to enjoy this World Heritage, Unesco protected site leisurely when all the other tourists have left!

Art classes, Italian classes, cultural tours and sightseeing tours are among the many organised trips you can

avail of in Venice where approximately 20 million visitors come annually to marvel at the magic that is Venice.

You can negotiate La Serenissima yourself using an array of useful guidebooks written by others who have

visited and loved Venice before you. The rail links are very good and you can also explore other beautiful Italian

cities like Verona, Padua, Florence, Rome and many many more from here. Venice however has enough beauty

and wonder to keep the average person exploring them for many years and you will find yourself drawn back to

her again and again.

About Mrs Leonora O'Sullivan

We bought this apartment in 2008 and refurbished it in 2009. Every year since then we have updated or upgraded some aspect of the

apartment. In 2010 we installed a new boiler, in 2012 a new

kitchen and in 2013 WIFI and new airconditioning. We absolutely love spending time here and love the fact that we are

so close to virtually every attraction in Venice. St Mark's Square at nighttime when the main body of tourists have gone home, exhibits a sort of magical surreal quality, its perfect beauty complemented by the various orchestras with musicians from all over the world. I cannot imagine anyone tiring of this unique setting.

Mrs Leonora O'Sullivan purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Mrs Leonora O'Sullivan chose Venice city center

The chance of having an apartment so close to the unique World Heritage, Unesco site of St Mark's Square in Venice was a very

special opportunity for us and very rare (we bought it from an Italian business person who, in turn had received it as a family inheritance). It is also comfortable and pleasant to spend time in.

What makes this apartment unique

Proximity to St Mark's Square and ease of access to all other

Venetian attractions.

Perfect Venice Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is perfectly located...we could watch the New Years fireworks from the terrace (well above the huge crowd of people we could see on the square below). We did not mind the stairs (exercise was needed after eating at all the great restaurants Leonora suggested). Rooms are well-sized and the bathrooms are modern (plus there are 2 of them!) I highly recommend Leonora's apartment.

Excellent, centrally located holiday apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This flat is spacious and well equiped, with good quality linen , furnture and beds.There is a small but very well equiped kitchen where we prepared breakfast, to eat on the charming roof terrace. Fantastic view of St Marco's roof and clock bell. The flat was spotlessly clean, with super bathrooms. There is no TV, or DVD etc -not necessary, as the flat is so centrally located you will be out exploring beautiful Venice! It is on the fifth floor, with stairs, which we found ok and we are in our 60's. Made us work off all the delicious food we had consumed! Great stay!

The perfect apartment for a stay in Venice

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect apartment for a stay in Venice. The location is unbeatable, just a thirty-second walk from St Mark’s Square (the heart of Venice). It is also only a short walk to local amenities such as a supermarket and the Vaporetto. The apartment itself is very charming and well cared for. The hostess, Leonora, is very welcoming and helpful. We were delighted when she was able to give us some fantastic local restaurant recommendations. On her advice we ate traditional Italian food at reasonable prices for the duration of our stay. I would highly recommend this apartment, I can’t think of a better way to experience Venice!

Venice at its best!

  • 5 of 5

Venice is an amazing place to come to and see and do and walk and eat and drink and just stand in Piazza San Marco at night and breathe and listen to the music. Do it and stay here, in this apartment. A stones throw from the Piazza, Doges Palace and St Marks Basilica, this home away from home is comfortable and very accommodating. Sure, bringing the suitcase up the steps is a workout, but treat yourself to a gelato and go exploring. Sit out on the porch with some wine and cheese and listen to the bells in the evening as the tourists thin out. The beds are comfortable, the bathrooms updated. Thank you, Leonora, for making this stay so perfect from our first emailing through the visit. I would absolutely encourage anyone coming to Venice to stay here and look forward to a repeat stay in the future!

wonderful apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Venice and most certainly will not be our last. We were so glad that we chose this apartment. This is a very well cared for, clean apartment. The outdoor balcony was wonderful, and we loved sitting out there hearing the noises of Venice. You are so close to all of the action, but feel as though when you enter this apartment all is quiet and peaceful. The stairs leading to the apartment are many, but we felt as though we could indulge just a little more!!!! This apartment was great, and we highly recommend it.

Car: not necessary

Venice, unique City of Water lies in North Eastern Italy. Piazza San Marco a World Heritage Unesco site is less than 30 seconds from our apartment. We are on the Merceria dell'Oralagio We can see the imposing Campanile and the fascinating Torrel del Orologio from our apartment and

enjoy the benign gaze of St Mark on the Byzantium Domes of his Cathedral when we sit on our balcony. We can sometimes hear the orchestras in St Mark's at nighttime and love the fact that we are so central, the beautiful laguna is only the other side of San Marco from us and it is magic to walk there late at night.The

Laguna with all its beauty and mysteries await you and the famous Lido is only a short waterbus (vaporetto) ride away. All the islands of the Laguna are so easily explored and you can get

a vaporetto from within a few minutes of our apartment. We are within walking distance( 5 minutes on foot) of The Rialto famous for its wonderful markets and the majestic Grand Canal.

Other Activities: Guided tours and lectures on Venice and the

surrounding Veneto region. Day trips to Verona, Padua and

and the Brenta Canal. Wine and Language tours and courses. The train station is easily accessible and the train system in Italy is both reasonable and efficient so you can visit a multitude of wonderful cities and sights.

St Mark residence, a two bedroomed apartment with balcony in the heart of Venice offers you the opportunity to stay in an unbeatable central location adjacent to St Mark's Square.You can enjoy a glass of prosecco on the balcony with St Mark looking down on you from the Basilica The gunmetal men on the Clock Tower will obligingly mark the time for you and at night or early in the morning you can have the Piazza San Marco virtually to yourself. The hustle and bustle of people leaving St Mark's takes place in the busy Mercerie full of designer shops below the apartment yet in the morning all you will hear will be the birds and the chiming of clocks. The warren of streets, canals and vaporetto stops that make up Venice are so easy to navigate when every sign directs you to St Marks, so you will never get lost. Its the perfect place to explore this magical, unique city and we hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do. Smoking on balcony. Children over 9 allowed
