Love this place. This apartment is around a 20 minute walk from the main attractions, and is much the better for that. It's a little tricky to find by yourself, but luciana arranged for someone to be waiting for a water taxi to drop us off and showed us the way. The river taxi cost 60 euros from the piazza Roma and is well worth the investment given the alternative of lugging suitcases up and down the various bridges between the drop off point and the apartment.
The apartment itself is authentically decorated and has a consistently Italian feel to the design. The air conditioning works well, thank goodness given the 40deg heat outside. Beds are all comfortable, the bathroom is neat and tidy and has a good shower. And the kitchen is fully kitted out with fridge, freezer, dishwasher and cooker. It's all there and works well.
There's a market a short walk away, restaurants on hand if you need a rest from the inevitable walking that Venice demands. And you get free wifi as well, which is a godsend if you have teenage kids with you...
It's a quiet, peaceful residential neighbourhood within a beautiful 20 minute walk of the piazza San Marco and around 15 mins from the Rialto bridge. Is a cracking little find and modestly priced too. Definitely recommended.
