Casa Veronica is in the heart of the Rialto section of Venice, one of the most ancient and characteristic areas of the city, with its world famous Rialto Bridge.
You will be enchanted by the Rialto outdoor market, which takes place every morning on the banks of the Grand Canal (3 minutes walk). The area is a colored mix of street stalls with tourist wares, fish, flowers, fruit and vegetables, and shops selling bread and pastries, meats, fresh pasta, cheese and Italy's renowned prosciutto. Small “bacari”, typical Venetian taverns selling wine and snacks, and homey restaurants (trattorie) line the streets. Our apartment provides a true Venetian experience.
Major tourist attractions are easily reached by foot (Piazza San Marco, 15 minutes; Campo San Polo, 5 minutes; Basilica and Campo dei Frari, 8 minutes; the less noted but beautiful Campo San Giacomo dell'Orio with its ancient church, 5 minutes). The closest vaporetto (ferry) stop on the Canal Grande is four minutes by foot (and only two bridges!).
Piazzale Roma (car and bus park) and the Train Station (Ferrovia) are easily reachable by vaporetto in 10 minutes. They are reachable by foot in about the same time, but only the lightest travelers with good shoes should do so; there are quite a few bridges to cross.
Campo Santa Maria Mater Domini, the closest square, is a small jewel with antique Byzantine and Gothic buildings (13th and 14th centuries).
Calle Longa, the narrow and quiet street that brings you to the apartment, is lined with shops selling antiques, vintage clothing and jewelry, and artisans selling cast iron goods, stationary, glass and lutes.
I will gladly show you the lesser known areas of the city, interesting day trips and, of course, advice regarding shopping for unique items or a typical dinner.
