Nice apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment right around the corner from the San Silvestro vaporetto stop and within walking distance of the Rialto market, bridge, etc. The area is much quieter than San Marco, which is a relief. The owners are extremely nice and gave us some great suggestions for restaurants and nearby super markets. The beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen is well equipped (we cooked in one night). The bathrooms were super clean and up to date. There is a washing machine in the kitchen, and a choice of hanging clothes indoors or out. There is so much room in the apartment that you can really spread out. There is a view of the canal, which was wonderful. Note that there is no air conditioning - there are fans, which did the job for us. There is also no television and very limited internet. The stairs are pretty steep.

All in all, a wonderful place to stay!

Experience Venetian life in a grand historic flat.

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a beautiful flat! It was such a treat to be able to stay in a historic home and experience some of Venetian life. The flat was very clean and comfortable. The owner made us feel welcome and gave us some great recommendations. The location was perfect! We enjoyed walking to the market for fresh fish and vegetables to cook. Our family had such a wonderful time and made great memories. I highly recommend staying here!

"Whatever is on the ad is...

  • 5 of 5

"Whatever is on the ad is even better in real! Huge flat in a palace! The owner has been very kind. Fantastic flat. Excellent reception and welcome. Very clean. It has been a wonderful vacations in a sublime decor. I highly recommend this rental for the atmosphere in the flat, the perfect location near the Rialto, shops and restaurant, next to a vaporetto station. Thank you for the excellent time to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of my parents in family."

"It is really what you se...

  • 5 of 5

"It is really what you see on photos even if you do not believe in it first!

Absolutely the must - the enormous big noble flat full with expensive things like big chandeliers, stone decorations many hundreds year old, many meters (I think eight or something) high ceilings - and you inside it.

We are very very glad - and the hosts are unbelievable nice people!

Try it even once in your life!"

Fabulous appartment in the centre of Venice!

  • 5 of 5

When you enter this apartment you feel as though you are stepping into Venice's history. You will see the same floors, window panes and wooden ceilings as you see in the Doge's Palace. Our stay in this palace made our trip to Venice even more special. It is clean, comfortable and spacious. Just round the corner from the Rialto bridge, amazingly central yet quiet. The owners are friendly and helpful. Some written information/maps about where to shop for essentials and recommended restaurants would have been helpful. Highly recommended!
