The North East Italy region
What can be said about Venice that hasn't already been written? Many places have tried and failed to imitate it but nothing in truth compares. Words only cannot adequately justify the magic of Venice -seeing is beliving.
Venice is actually a series of islands separated by the lagoons where a hoard of bountiful history await you. From the rialto bridge, to the gondaliers, St Mark's Square, Doge's palace to Harry's bar Venice will excite and inspire in equal measure.
Whether you visit in the winter's mist or summer sun Venice enjoys its position as a kind of "floating city" ane a revels in its reputation as arguably the most romantic place on earth. Add to that the architecture, the famous Venetian glass, the regional cuisine and buzz the locals and tourists create and you have the perfect city break or romantic get away.

"Stay with real Venetians"
This is an excellent place to stay if you want to be away from the main tourist areas, yet be close enough to walk to them. It's also good for vaporetto routes, local shops and restaurants. The garden is great for eating and drinking in, and the whole property is well equipped.

The apartment is in a great location and the main part of it is well equipped with a full kitchen, washing machine, master bedroom and bath, lovely living and dining area, garden sitting area. We were two couples traveling and expected a two bedroom apartment. The second bedroom is on the ground level, apart from the main flat, which is okay. However it has no windows or vents either in the bedroom or bathroom and has a musty smell. The owner told us not to keep the door open as there were neighborhood cats. It meant sleeping in the room with no air or ventilation, apart from a fan. We tried to sleep in it but could not because the musty smell got into our lungs. We had to sleep on the floor of the living room for 2 nights before we found another apartment to rent.
We would recommend this property only for 2 people, sharing one double bed.
