|Further details indoors|
The property is 78 square metres so is quite spacious and is very light and airy. The photos were taken late in the day so may appear a little dark. The property is like a little townhouse, with no one above or below. The stairs to the altana roof terrace are quite steep and only suitable for people with good mobility, though they are perfectly safe.
|Further details outdoors|
There is space to sit and sun bathe on the roof terrace with a retractable canopy to provide shade if needed. The roof terrace has panoramic views and is also lovely in the evening.
The roof terrace has excellent hand rails on the approach up, but the owner assumes no liability to guests who use it. Please do not be scared off by this, it is not that difficult! There are also 2 chairs and a small table which can be used for the ground level small patio. Outside space in Venice is very rare. There is a private dock which can be used for taxis. Boats can only be left there for a relatively short time as the dock is shared with other property owners.
Long stay guests very welcome.
The North East Italy region
The Veneto is famous architecturally for Palladio's famous palazzi, for its distinctive wines including Pinot Grigio and for its interesting Renaissance towns, including Padua, Vincenza and Treviso. There is easy access to the Dolomites just north of Venice which are very beautiful year round.
There are some interesting towns in the Dolomites, including Bolzano Grappa where grappa is made. The famous Verona is a short train journey away with its Roman arena which stages open air opera and other events in the summer.
Of course, there is no other place like Venice in the entire world! It is very beautiful and its light is legendary. There are so many famous attractions which can be found on the internet, but the famous glass from nearby Murano must be mentioned.
Lesser known are the very many festivals: not just Carnival in February but there are many traditional rowing festivals, the blessing of the sea, Festa della Redentore with its amazing fireworks in July, etc. etc. Venice also hosts the Biennale contemporary art festival every 2 years from June - Nov. and the Venice Film Festival. There are special exhibitions every year and Venice is a centre for both Renaissance and contemporary art.
