About This Listing
If you want to discover the real Venice at only one vaporetto stop from S. Marco sq. my apartment is the perfect location…Fantastic neighborhood close to the sea and the heart of this magic town!
Looking for a nice place and a nice neighborough to stay in Venice? My flat is perfect for you ! It is located in the neighborough of Castello, just a short walk from San Marco Square. It is very romantic with an artistic touch, on the last floor of a small building with a lot of windows and a lot of light. The apartment is 58m2, and has 1 sitting/dining room, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. In the apartment there is everything you need for a good stay in Venise, Internet WIFI and air- condition included. The nearest waterbus stop is Arsenale, just one stop from San Marco. The neighborough is a real venitian neighborough with the boats selling vegetables and fish coming from the isles every morning, a lot of nice café, and small restaurants.
It’s also a very relaxing place where you can discover the real life of Venice, outside the tourist traps…
How to get to the apartment? Easy! You arrive at the vaporetto stop ARSENALE. From the quay you pass two bridges, direction opposite from S. Marco Square. After the second bridge, Ponte della Veneta Marina, it begins Via Garibaldi. You take it and at about 80 mts, on the right, just before to arrive at the CAFFE' STRANI, you stop at n° 1577. You ring the bell at the ringbell "MUCCIACCIA". Donatella, the lady living there, is the lady in charge of my apartment. She will be waiting for you to give you the keys of my apartment. Once the keys in your hand you just continue to walk some few meters on the Via Garibaldi till you arrive to a narrow street on your right named SOTOPORTEGO DEL PISTOR (between the bakery and the restaurant: Il Giorgione"). You take it and stop at n°1542. My apartment is at the last floor of the building (the one on the right side). At the end of your stay, before leaving the apartment, leave the keys on the table of the sitting room.

The apartment is a no smoking apartment. For any problem Mrs Donatella Mucciaccia could help you for everything you need. She'll wait for you and give you keys when you'll arrive (need to know at what time you plan to arrive at the apartment).
I did not meet the host, but the arrangements for collecting the keys worked well. The apartment was in a great location, and it would have been fine for 2 people - but the second bedroom was so small and there was just room for a double futon in it. I would not advise four adults to stay there for that reason, and that made it very expensive for what it was. Also, small things in the kitchen/dining area could have been improved at low cost with one trip to IKEA (glasses, cups etc. which were enough for 4 and matched). This was my first Airbnb experience, and if this is what one should expect I will go back to staying in hotels or apartments as I used to do. One of the selling points was the food for the first meal - but the tomatoes were already mouldy when we got there and we had to throw them away, so it was pointless to have them. It was good to have wifi, but it was slow. In the bathroom there was no shower curtain, so every time you showered the floor got wet, and the pressure of the water was poor. The best thing about the apartment was the location, but I would not stay there again because it is far too expensive for what it is - and four people have such different bedrooms that it is embarrassing for those in the "good" bedroom. Perhaps it was an expensive time to stay in Venice, but I have stayed there many times before and this was the most expensive place per person I have stayed in there - and it was not value for money.
Bon Contact avec Chiara.
Logement bien équipé dans un quartier très calme à 15 mns de la place St Marc.
We hebben geen ontvangst gehad, moesten de sleutel gaan halen bij een buurvrouw maar voelden ons onmiddellijk thuis in het heel aangenaam appartement van Chiara.
Het verblijf was zalig, we hebben alles gevonden om een comfortabel verblijf te hebben.
Het appartement is gelegen in een heel aangename populaire buurt, 10 minuutjes stappen van het San Marco plein. Een aanrader dus.
We stayed in Chiara's pretty apartment for 4 day in March. It is in a lovely neighborhood, just 15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of San Marco, but quiet and tourist-free, with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants nearby. It has plenty of natural light and everything you might need for a visit. Chiara was available to promptly answer any questions before and during our visit. Recommended!
L'appartement etait tel que je l'avais vu sur les photos . Très claire, très ensoleillé , calme .Un quartier loin de la foule des touristes mais proche quand même de la place St Marc.
Il y avait les denrées nécessaires pour faire le premier repas en arrivant . Très agréable .
On se sentait comme chez soi .
