About Paola

My name is Paola and I have been living here in Venice since 1983, when I arrived from Rome to reach my mother, Filippa, who had moved because of her job. Here I attended high school and college, graduating in History of Art. I was immediately fallen in love with Venice and so I decided to live here even after the end of my studies. that's why I am still here and I'm always confident and happy with my choice!

Paola purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Paola chose San Marco

The apartment belonged to my mother who bought it in 2005 because it was a few steps from the house where I live today with my husband Renato. I am very attached to this apartment and the San Marco area where I spent the years of my youth happy and carefree. Despite the inevitable and continuous transformations, the area of San Marco with its beautiful square, its museums and its ancient monuments preserves the infinite charm of a unique city.

What makes this apartment unique

The strengths of the apartment are to be found in the center position, the layout of the rooms (the 3 bedrooms are not neighbors in order to guarantee a good privacy to all guests) and size (126 square feet), making it ideal for a large family or a group of friends. From the windows of the kitchen and the master bedroom you can stop to observe the slow passage of gondolas on the canal of San Moisé.

Amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our stay in San Marco and really enjoyed the house. Great location! Paola was a big help prior to our arrival. The house is clean, large, equipped with amenities and helpful information for finding restaurants and food. When we return to Venice again, we would book this home and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Venice. We didn't want to leave. Thank for making our trip to Venice amazing!

Loved It!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days in Venice, and Paola's apartment definitely played a part in that. The flat was super clean and comfortable. The location is very central, which made it really easy for us to stop in for a rest or to freshen up in the middle of our days. Seeing Venice with our 80 + parents and young kids was a breeze because of this.

Paola met us at our water taxi, showed us to the apartment and took the time to answer our many questions. She arranged our water taxi to the airport and couldn't have been more helpful.

We had a wonderful time in Venice staying at the apartment, and would recommend it anytime.

Thanks Paola!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for a perfect visit to Venice. We could not have asked for a better flat, location, and hostess. The flat was immaculately clean, fully furnished with thoughtful amenities (umbrellas!), and fast wifi. Paola was extremely communicative and helpful throughout, including providing great recommendations for places to buy groceries, to visit and to eat. She went out of her way to fix things, such as a few broken light bulbs that she was more concerned about than we were! Would recommend to anyone interested in a perfect place to stay.

Great location as it is close to St Marks and the Rialto. Situated in a good safe neighbourhood.

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed appartment that offered comfort and style. Paola is a very personable host and was very helpful in giving good travel tips as well as sharing her insights to life in Venice - we had a wonderful 3 days in Venice and hope to return again.

Great location, but lacking in other regards.

  • 3 of 5

The location was fantastic-only a few minute walk to San Marco's Square. We also had a great view of one of the smaller canals right outside the kitchen window. One of the reasons for picking the place to stay was based on the positive comments pertaining to the host. Unfortunately, we did not meet our host until day two, and she proved to be pleasant and helpful; however, the person the host had filling in for her upon our arrival was miserable and not helpful.We did not learn that we would be dealing with someone other than the host until I received a text from a stranger (the person filling in for the host just before our arrival). Further, we had no wi-fi for the first 2 days. The host did finally have it repaired on the night before we had to leave, but there was no concession made. Also, we could not locate any soap or shampoo. Only one very small shower. Uncomfortable beds. Dishwasher not unloaded upon our arrival. No sheets on our bed (only a comforter).

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry to hear your experience in my apartment was not completely satisfying and I will take this opportunity to clarify the circumstances which contributed to making it less than perfect. Unfortunately, the day you arrived in Venice I was held by a medical emergency. I had to spend more than 24 hours at the ER in Mestre to assist a friend who had a stroke. I was the only person who could stay by her side that day. Of course, we all wished this had never happened. Rosanna, the person who substituted me, did her best to meet and greet you and make sure you would arrive to your destination. When you mistakenly got off the wrong vaporetto stop she patiently waited for you for more than 1 hour. Before leaving you at the apartment, she gave you as much information as possible about the apartment and the city. She works with tourists and deals with them on a daily basis. Defining her “miserable and not helpful” is offensive and unfair. We had guests in the apartment until the day before you arrival (hence the clean unloaded dishwasher, an unfortunate oversight on the part of our cleaning lady—and we are very sorry about that). None of them complained about the wifi, so we were unaware of the problem. Fixing it on Ferragosto, the Italian mid-August holiday, was next to impossible; It would be like trying to fix your wireless on Thanksgiving day in the US. We did our best to help: I personally spoke for almost two hours with a technician, who came as soon as he could. By that time, of course, you were almost ready to leave Venice, but we were at the mercy of the holiday schedule of the telephone company. Finally, the apartment you rented is not a hotel. It is a self-catered apartment, so we try to leave basic items that may be of use for a day or two. As you know, you found toilet paper, soap, dishwasher detergent and other basic items. Shampoos and gel showers are the responsibility of guests. This is the etiquette for this type of vacation rentals. My beds have a bottom sheet and a duvet with a comforter. Writing there are no sheets is inaccurate and misleading. If you desired a top sheet all you had to do was call me and request one, I would have been happy to provide them. If you found the bed uncomfortable, I can only be sorry about that. I understand that beds are always a very personal choice. The mattresses are new and in excellent shape and I am sorry they did not meet your expectations.

Best location for a wonderful stay in Venice.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, comfortable and in the best imaginable location in Venice -- just a few minutes walk to San Marco, and down a quiet alley from shops and restaurants. Paola was accommodating and helpful. We had a wonderful stay in this apartment and would highly recommend it! Thank you Paola!!
