This lovely penthouse is placed in a typical XVIII Venetian palace, in Santa Croce district, a central area that has been spared the flux of tourists and where you can still find the typical and honest side of the town.
The penthouse has been renovated in 2007 and lived by the owners until few years ago. That’s why you will find all the comforts you need to feel as you were at home.
Each room is bright and sunny, enjoy panoramic view on the canal and the surrounding roofs and “altanas”, the typical Venitian terraces placed on top of the buildings. Sun goes down in the living room setting a charming atmosphere.
The penthouse is only 10 min walk from the train station and 15 min from the bus station. San Stae waterbus stop is only 1 minute away without bridges to pass trough. You can enjoy your breakfast in one the many typical bars and restaurants around campo San Giacomo (1 min), visit the church - one of the oldest in the town - where there are paintings by Veronese and Lotto. The Natural History Museum and the Modern Art Museum are both 2 minute walk. Rialto fresh food market and Rialto Bridge are only 5 minute away and from there you can reach San Marco square with a 10 min lovely walk.
Owners will be pleased to suggest their guests unusual trips, to set personal chef dinner, giving advices for restaurants and shops and do every thing you need to get the best from your Venice experience.

Giorgia purchased this apartment in 2006
Great location. Nice apartment. Roomy for 2 couples. Clean. Quiet. Quite a few steep stairs. On the top floor. Not recommended for the elderly or someone with physical limitations. We would be happy to stay there again. Georgia is wonderful! We hired her for a 2 hour walking tour. It was great!
Thanks Georgia. You are the best of Venice!!
Nice spacious apartment with all that you need to have within steps. A very quiet neighbourhood but close enough to everything that you want to see in Venice. Thank you Giorgia for the good communication and tips on making our stay enjoyable.
Our family of five (with three grown children) really enjoyed your tremendous hospitality and apartment. Thank you for arranging a water taxi to take us to the airport early Sunday morning (it all worked as planned and the ride was entertaining with tremendous views of Venice). Your apartment was extremely clean, quiet, and comfortable.
You made us feel right at home and we really enjoyed our time in Venice.
We had the pleasure of staying 4 nights in Giorgia’s lovely penthouse. We were a party of 5 adults, and found the apartment to be bright and comfortable, with 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The 2 larger bedrooms have air conditioning, as does the large common room (living and dining area). Photos of the kitchen could suggest that it is extremely small, but we found it very serviceable.
The building was well situated, and all of the typical tourist sites were an easy walk, with the furthest (e.g., Piazza San Marco) being no more than 15-25 minutes away (depending upon one’s route). While the hustle and bustle of those places was not far, the immediate area was quiet, charming, comfortable, and felt more like a locals’ neighborhood.
We found excellent restaurants and great take-away/take-out foods nearby. There is a Coop market within a short walk for consumables, toilet paper, etc.; and near the Coop are a terrific wine shop and a shop with great panini, breads, pastries and pizzas.
Giorgia was a terrific host and concierge. She met us at Santa Lucia train station with a water taxi to escort us to the apartment, and arranged for our very early departure water taxi from the apartment to the airport. She was always promptly responsive and available for emails, texts and calls. She offers a variety of services (see her website: http://www.haveaglassinvenice.com/). We opted for a full-day tour of the lagoon, which Giorgia led, and it was an absolutely wonderful and extraordinary experience.
Two elements of the apartment of cautionary note:
1. Giorgia’s listing is completely honest and forthcoming about the lack of an elevator. This is a “walk-up” apartment on the top floor of the building. We were a party of 2 in their sixties, 2 in their mid-thirties, and 1 in his mid-twenties. While we found it challenging to drag our heaviest bags up (and down) the stairs, we did not find the daily routine of descending and ascending the stairs, even multiple times, to be particularly difficult.
2. The third (smallest) bedroom does not have its own air conditioning unit. It is adjacent to the main living area, which does, so if the occupant(s) of that room feel(s) the need, he/she/they could opt to sleep in the living room area.
In conclusion, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Giorgia’s penthouse, and wholeheartedly recommend it without reservation to anyone. We also unconditionally recommend Giorgia herself, as a wonderful host, tour guide and concierge.
I would recommend this apartment 100%!! Very nicely updated and keeps the old Venice charm. Comfortable, homey. Giorgia is honest and wonderful to work with. Price is very reasonable for Venice!
Giorgia's apartment offered us the best accommodation I ever experienced in Venice
It is a wonderfully decorated, laid out and filled-with-amenities place, in a compelling location.
Giorgia's kind and intelligent touch is evident both in the thoughtful and tasteful decor and her attention to our comfort evident in every exchange we had with her.
I cannot recommend this place enough.
