From the room you can reach the wooden made loft which has a single bed. At the first floor you will find also the bathroom.
At the groundfloor there is the dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. Also this space it is air-conditioned.
You will have a super-confortable studio couch for two persons. It is simple and fast to open and close.

The house is near the Jewish Ghetto, in Cannaregio, a quiet
venetian neighborhood. You will have lots of tiny venetian non touristic restaurants.
100 metres from the house there is a huge supermarket which is really rare here in the city center. It is open every day from 8am to 8 pm.
The house is near the water bus stops of San Marcuola and Guglie. 10 minutes far from the railways station and the bus station of Piazzale Roma.
You can reach the RIalto Bridge in 15 minutes and St. Mark's square in 20 without any public transport.
The price depends on the number of persons and days but it is really cheap for Venice.

We very much enjoyed our 3 nights at Ca' Falcao. Nicolo was an excellent host. He provided clear directions to a nearby landmark, the Guglie bridge, where he was waiting for us and escorted us the rest of the way to his apartment. Also provided a thorough orientation to the apartment, appliances, heat, television and internet. Before leaving us to fend for ourselves he made sure we knew how to get to the neighborhood grocery store, the nearest dumpster, and provided a few recommendations for places to get a bite to eat. We also appreciated the little extra's like a copy of the Lonely Planet Travel Guide to Venice, a spare umbrella (very important the weekend we stayed), two towels per guest, and a welcome cup of coffee/tea.
The house is located on a quiet side street in a residential neighborhood. After a long day of sight-seeing, our 13 year old especially liked coming home to the complete set of Harry Potter movies in the collection of dvds Nicolo invited us to use and the sleeping loft above the main bedroom. Though not very spacious, the apartment was clean and comfortable. Hot water supply and water pressure were good. Beds were very comfortable. Street noise was virtually nonexistent. Though off the beaten track, it never took us more than half an hour to meander our way to St Marks square.
The house of Nicolò was very clean and cosy. Perfect location to stay a few days in venice. I can only recommend this nice place!
Location perfetta, fuori dal giro turistico ma comoda in quanto è a 10 minuti a piedi dalla stazione e nella stessa strada dell'appartamento si trovano diverse osterie tipiche veneziane ed altri locali.
L'appartamento è equipaggiato di tutto, molto accogliente ed originale. La camera da letto comodissima e silenziosa.
Nicolo' è stato molto disponibile e ha fornito tutte le informazioni necessarie, è stato anche molto puntuale nelle risposte.
A Venezia sarà sempre il mio alloggio preferito! :)
We had a great time in Venice, Nicolò was very easy to contact and the house was nice. It took us a little while to reach the centre of the city but it doesn't matter as Venice is not that big and Cannaregio district is plenty of local and very typical bars and restaurants
Me and my family's first airbnb experience turned out to be a direct hit! Our stay in Nicolò appartment in Cannaregio was everything we expected. Nicolo was a great host and super responsive and helpful. Really nice quarters with a lot of popular bars and restaurants at the channel berth just around the corner. We had a great time and I won't hesitate to recommend Nicolò to any other airbnb travellers for Venice.
What a fantastic location! Ground floor apartment in a really quiet & authentically Venizian neighborhood, but pretty close to the main part of Venice, and a quick walk to the ferry.... bedroom upstairs, then a loft up a ladder....living & kitchen downstairs. Everything I needed was there, & a supermarket really close. Alvise met me & took my bags & me home, gave me all relevant information, & sent an email with more info the next day. Nicolo contacted a couple of times to check all was going well. I would highly recommend this lovely apartment as a great location & peaceful refuge for your stay in beautiful Venezia. Thanks for everything Nicola!
We had the best stay at Ca'Falcao in a quiet street of the Cannaregio, close to great osterias and bacari, and next to the Ghetto. The flat (house) is perfect for 2 to 4/5 people, lot of room is available for cooking and dining, the 1st floor's bedroom is big and the bathroom well equiped. Nicolo and his friend Alvise managed to pick us up at the station and helped us all along our stay. Highly recommended!
We had an excellent stay at nicolo's, it is a small self contained appartment in an excellent quiet location, we loved the local bars and restaurants, which are very local and not touristy, so much nicer than many others in venice! on our last night of stay we ate at Osteria Al Bacco, about 20 yards from the flat, and had the best meal we had in venice, and great value and atmosphere too! an article in the Guardian newspaper about the local area and restaurants: (website hidden) - we never got to meet nicolo, but he made sure his friend Alvise met us and took us to the appartment when we arrived and was very friendly, and nicolo was great at emailing and staying in contact. The flat is about 10 mins walk from the bus station, but next to the Jewish ghetto, which is an interesting area. There is a good supermarket very close by to the flat. I have stayed in venice before in more central locations, but this was the best location for me so far, as it is so nice to get away from the crowds! and it is a short walk through to the vaparetto/water taxis which will take you down to St Marks or wherever. the flat itself was clean and tidy and had a comfy bed, and was very secure and homely. There was also wifi. Thanks Nicolo for our stay! Hopefully we will come back again!
Appartement très agréable, mignon et fonctionnel comme chez soi. Nicolo y vit aussi donc vous aurez tout à disposition et une déco cosy.
Nicolo est un super hôte : à l'écoute, hyper réactif via mail/sms et toujours prêt à donner un coup de main. Il laisse même un portable pour joindre les numeros locaux. Merci Nicolo !
Un rdc avec salon/clic-clac/petite cuisine. A noter pour les technophiles une TV HD, du WiFi et possibilité d'écouter votre musique via une prise jack standard tablette/smartphone 3.5mm ou une borne AirPlay pour Apple.
A l'étage, chambre agréable avec lit douillet et mezzanine avec lit simple.
A 1min de là un grand supermarché ouvert 7j/7 jusque 20h. Des restos et bars sympas à prix honnêtes dans les environs. Il faut dire que le quartier de Cannareggio est un quartier hors flux touristique où habite de nombreux venisiens.
Niveau accès depuis l'aeroport.
Le + simple et le + rapide = par bus (compagnie ATVO/ACTV) compter 20 min entre l'aéroport et venise (piazzale Roma) puis 20 min de marche jusque l'appartement.
- rapide + cher mais plus bucolique : le bateau via Alilaguna ligne orange Arancio. Compter 10min de marche juque l'embarcadère puis un bon 30-40 min jusque l'arrêt Guglie. Puis 5-10 min à pied jusque l'appartement.
Dans Venise. Privilégier les vaporetto dont l'arrêt le + proche est Mercuola-Casino à 15 min de l'appartement. De là compter un bon 20 min le long du grand canal jusque San (website hidden) final, super adresse pour être bien installé et autonome. Il faudra marcher mais Venise est par défaut sponsor de vos muscles fessiés :)
Nicolo, a friendly, reliable host to greet us on our arrival to Venice for the first time.
Thank you for the use of your apartment which proved to be more than adequate for our needs and well located away from the busy tourist strips of the city.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone that is more interested in 'keeping it real' during their stay in Venice.
