Great apartment in a great location in a fascinating city. A terrific way to enjoy Venice!
The apartment was perfect for two couples. It offered everything we needed during our stay. We especially liked that both bedrooms had queen beds and both baths had showers.
The location is great. The apartment is close enough to Piazza San Marco that we could easily enjoy the "touristy" aspects of Venice while still providing a sense of what it must be like to live full-time in such a unique city.
We did not use the modern, fully-equipped kitchen, but it clearly would have been entirely adequate for preparing simple meals had we chosen to do so.
The on-site representative, Mrs. Arianna, was terrific. Whereas some of our friends (who rented a different apartment) spent a long time walking around Venice trying to find their accommodations, Mrs. Arianna met us at the water bus landing and escorted us to the apartment. She provided all the information we needed to get oriented and then responded promptly to several inquiries from us during our stay. As this was our first visit to Venice, we REALLY appreciated Mrs. Arianna's knowledge about the city and her willingness to share it with us.
Renting this apartment was a good experience in all respects.
Clean great location and good rental staff
Cute apartment in a quiet section of Venice

Over all it was a great place to stay and we would love to do it again.
The San Marco district is the oldest and the most famous of Venice. The center for excellence in the district is Piazza San Marco. Known as "the drawing room of the world", it has been the site of political events and the most important religious center for the Venetian Republic and the Venetian life for almost a millennium. Piazza San Marco is to be considered as the biggest museum of the lagoon city: it is precisely here that starts the city of Venice, with the Basilica and the Ducal Palace. The San Marco district is named after the basilica erected to contain the remains of San Marco, brought from Alexandria, Egypt by two Venetian merchants, in the year 828. Since then, San Marco became the patron saint of the city, taking the place of San Teodoro first patron saint of Venice. Next to the sacred building stands The Doge's Palace that, along with the Basilica, is the symbol of Venice. Until the fall of the Venetian Republic in 1797 it was the residence of the Doge, a public building and the public administration Justice place.
Monumental attractions in the area of Piazza San Marco:
- El Paron de Casa: so Venetians affectionately call the Campanile of San Marco.
