Casa Fondamente Nove
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 spacious living room has a sofa bed (200x160). The apartment can accommodate up to six guests.
The owners have outfitted the apartment with every comfort: air conditioning in each room, TV, hairdryer, independent heating, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator. The apartment is fully stocked with linens and the kitchen has all the necessary tools included.
The apartment is situated in a central but quiet position. Its ideal location allows you to visit the city, both on foot and by public transportation services. The Rialto area is reached in 10 minutes, St. Mark's Square in fifteen minutes. The nearest boat stop, Ca' d'Oro, is five minutes from the apartment; from there it is nine minutes to the train station and 12 minutes to Piazzale Roma, the link to the mainland. The Fondamente Nuove boat stop is very close to the apartment and from there, one can take the boats to the airport and to the wonderful islands of Torcello, Murano and Burano.
Restaurants, shops, banks and museums are just a short walking distance from the apartment.
The owners live on the floor above the apartment and fluently speak and write English, French and German and are available to help at any time. The price is inclusive of all expenses.
The apartment is located in the Cannaregio district, which is home to the Venice's Jewish Quarter and the Ca' d'Oro, one the city´s most beautiful palazzos and an obligatory stop for any visitor to Venice.
This apartment is ideal for all types of stay, whether you are travelling with family or friends, on a business trip, or simply looking to escape the stress and traffic of modern cities and enjoy a bit of peace and tranquillity in the beautiful lagoon city of Venice.

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.

"Blissfully quiet, superbly situated, well-equipped apartment"
Elisa is the perfect host. She met our boat from the airport at a vaporetto stop, just yards from the apartment. She provides notes for her guests, detailing which baker sells fresh bread on Sundays and much else besides. The apartment is beautiful (we've never had such a well-equipped kitchen), very quiet, with lovely views over the lagoon, yet within easy walking distance of all the main sites. We used the second bedroom for an adult but it is better suited to a child (or a very short adult!). This apart, we wholeheartedly recommend Elisa's apartment and will be telling other people about it.
