Villa | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
These comfortable apartments are situated in a peaceful and secluded area of the city, in the Castello “sestiere” or quarter, near Via Garibaldi, just a short distance away from the gardens of the Biennale and the Arsenale, the ancient fortified boatyard where the Serenissima's ships were built. They are less than one minute from the Arsenale vaporetto (or water boat) stop, and just a 10 minute walk away from St. Mark's Square. The Lido di Venezia, the island on the lagoon which is famous for its beaches and Film Festival, is just a few minutes away by vaporetto. Worth visiting in the Castello “sestiere” is the Church of St. Zachary of Venice, the scene of attacks carried out against various Doges before the year one thousand, which is behind St. Mark's Square. To the north, the Basilica of St. John and St. Paul hosts the tombs of numerous Doges including Nicolò Marcello, Pietro Mocenigo, and Andrea Vendramin.
Near the apartments are a variety of shops, two supermarkets, stalls that sell fish, fruit and vegetables in the mornings, and typical restaurants with views of the lagoon. Despite their central position, the apartments are very quiet as they are situated on a side street or “calle” of Via Garibaldi, in a typical “courtyard”. Both apartments have recently been renovated, are pleasantly furnished and have two bathrooms.
small entrance, living room with dining area, satellite TV, double sofa bed and adjoining kitchen with oven and freezer; 1 double bedroom with bathroom and shower, 1 bathroom with shower.

The North East Italy region
It's safe to say there's nowhere quite like Venice. Spread over 118 small islands, intersected by canals, connected by bridges and home to some of the world's finest architecture and artworks, it crams an embarrassment of riches into its five square kilometres. Little wonder the entire city is listed as a World Heritage Site.
So, where to start? St Mark's Basilica for many is the jewel in Venice's crown, with its opulent design, gilded mosaics and iconic Byzantine architecture, it never fails to be anything less than breathtaking. Of course, no trip is complete without a coffee in the grandiose Piazza San Marco whilst listening to the duelling orchestras or a romantic gondola trip along the Grand Canal.
Getting off the beaten track and exploring for yourself can be just as rewarding, for not all of this unique city's treasures are on obvious display.
