Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This bright and comfortable 2-bedroom apartment (80 square meters/860 square feet) is on the 1st floor (American second floor) of a 16th-century house and was completely restored in 2012. The ceilings have exposed red-larch beams original to the house and the pavements are in Venetian terrazzo throughout the apartment.
The apartment, well furnished with a mixture of contemporary and antique styles, overlooks the Venetian lagoon. From the living room windows, the island of Murano is easily admired.
Every attention to detail has been made during the renovation. The independent kitchen is fully equipped with Miele appliances and the luxurious bathroom (with shower) is outfitted with Villeroy & Boch bathroom fixtures. The main bedroom offers a king-sized bed plus there is a single bedroom. In both bedrooms you will find the peace and quiet you need to relax during your stay.

The North East Italy region
Moreover, Venice, as beautiful and unique it is, has a hinterland absolutely worth-seeing as well. Of course, the towns Treviso, Padua and Verona are always worth a visit, but there are also many other interesting places to discover. You should ideally rent a car (e.g. from Avis at the Piazzale Roma or from Europcar at the train station in Mestre) and drive e.g. along the Brenta Canal. Here you will find splendid villas of Venetian noble families in a row like pearls on a string, one more beautiful and more impressive than the other. The popularity of the pretty small town Asolo is due to the famous actress Eleanora Duse, who used to live here from 1919 to 1923 and was also buried here. In 1989, the Eugenean Hills, a ridge of hills of volcanic origin south-west of Venice were appointed the first Venetian natural park. Today, the region is well-known particularly because of its geothermal activities and hot springs and its gentle, Tuscan landscape.
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. ... Why not to go at La Fenice theatre? You can visit the La Fenice Theatre in the morning or in the afternoon (also during the stage rehearsals) or to listen to many performances every day. Check the timetable performances on the following web site address: http://www.teatrolafenice.it/index.php The Rialto market is one of the most picturesque place in Venice and Veneto region, above all in the morning between 07:00 to 11:00. Please remember, on Monday morning is closed. If you like gambling, not far from the apartment, (quite close to San Marcuola stop) you can spend time (and money ...) at the Casinò.
The Cannaregio district is the largest district of the city after Castello, but the most populous. Cannaregio in fact occupies almost the whole entire part of the city to the north of the Grand Canal, extending from the train station (lower numbers),just north of Santa Croce which is connected via the Scalzi Bridge and the Bridge of the Constitution,to Castello, which is bordered to the south and east almost entirely, with the exception of the parish of San Canciano bordering Campo San Bartolomeo, in the district of San Marco. The main waterway is the Cannaregio Canal, which connects the Grand Canal and the lagoon. It is the only internal channel of the historical center, in addition to the Grand Canal, to be crossed by boat. The Cannaregio Canal is crossed by two bridges: The Guglie bridge so named for the four spiers on all four corners; The Bridge of the Three Arches (formerly Bridge St Job), the only three-arched bridge remained in Venice.
