St Mark Torre dell'Oralagio
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
When you arrive in St Mark's and cross the astounding piazza you will pass under the Clock tower or Torre dell'Orologio and find yourself in the Mercerie one of the 'busiest, richest and narrowest shopping streets' and also the main link to the Rialto. Entering through a side street you must climb five (relatively easy) sets of steps (photo shown) to reach our 5th floor apartment. Once there you'll find the walk was worth it and you can overlook the bustling Mercerie below and see the gunmetal Moors strike the hour on the Clock tower as well as enjoy a preprandial drink on the balcony under the benign eye of St Mark. This attractive well-equipped flat is comfortable, convenient to all amenities and even manages to have a 'nice feel' to it. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do and have a great Venetian experience. Smoking is restricted to balcony only. Children over 10.

The North East Italy region
The Veneto lies in the northernmost sector of Italy ranging from the Dolomite mountains in the north to the Venetian Lagoon in the south. It is one of the most prosperous Italian regions with an area of 47,562sq km and a population of 4.5 million.
It has excellent road and rail links with the rest of Europe and international travel is facilitated by the three
airports in Marco Polo, Treviso and Verona. The highly successful medieval Venetian state arose out of the mercantile dynamism of the mainland cities of the Veneto, including, Padua, Maestre, Vicenza, as well as Verona, Treviso and the 'Old Lady of the Lagoon', Venice, who, in her prime, 'ruled much of the Mediterranean.
This rich history is evident everywhere in the Veneto where architecture, crafts, music, painting and theatre all reflect the multicultural influences of its former trading partners. And there are mountains to climb and Palladian villas to see!
Venice is unique! Unlike other cities it never disappoints and the piazza San Marco just beside the apartment is a good place to begin your tour. The Campanile, Doge's Palace, Torre dell'Orologio, Basilica San Marco, the Library, Museum and the Columns of San Marco and San Teodoro are the big attractions but so too are the impromtu concerts and gatherings and the wonderfully magic atmosphere in the world's 'largest drawingroom'.

"Awesome Location and lovely apartment"
Our family of 4 (2 kids aged 4 & 7) had a fantastic stay at this apartment. The location is outstanding (just back from the St Marcs Clocktower), the apartment is really lovely and its also great value. Leonora (owner) is a pleasure to deal with - we highly recommend this place. One thing to consider is that there is no elevator and the aartment is on the 5th level. My wife was very concerned on arival (I intentionally didn't tell her), but once I got all of our luggage up (and then down at thew end), it rarely bothered us - god exercise! Also there is no wifi which can be a problem for some. The outlook from the balcony is great and the fact that you have a balcony is fantastic
