The apartment "Ca'Preziosa" occupies a central yet remarkably quiet location in the district of Cannaregio, a few steps away from the famous Church of the Miracles, a 5 minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge and a 10 minutes walk from San Marco square. The Arsenale and the Gardens of the Biennale can be reached by foot in less than 15 minutes, and by boat in about 20 minutes.
"Fondamente Nove" is the nearest Vaporetto stop, less than 100 meters away. "Fondamente Nove" is a pick-up point for the motorboat service "Alilaguna " which connect the international airport "Marco Polo" to the city of Venice, and a stop for Vaporetto 42 or 52 to and from the railway Station or Piazzale Roma. The islands of Murano, Burano or Torcello can also be reached with boats who stop at "Fondamente Nove".
The neighborhood offers a variety of restaurants, supermarkets, cafés, boutiques, clothing shops and grocery stores.
On request, we will be very pleased to organize your personal transfer to the apartment.
Gentilissimo e disponibile. ..molto curato l appartamento. ..ottima posizione
Both Davide and Alessandra were wonderful hosts. Everything went smoothly and our stay was as we hoped it would be.
The apartment looked exactly as in photos.
The Cannaregio neighbourghood is the best, full of local restaurants and shops.
We'd love to stay here again!
Hosts were very welcoming and met us when we got off the water taxi to guide us to the home. Alessandra showed us how to work everything in the home and gave us a map with suggested restaurant ideas too. This home is furnished very nicely and is on a quiet street, but close to walk to everything too! We loved our stay and would love to return someday!
Lovely modern newly renovated apartment in a quiet area of Venice. Apartment was light and airy and with all mod cons. Communication with Davide was excellent, he provided advise prior to arrival regarding parking and waterbus access and detailed information about shops and restaurant recommendations upon arrival.
Communication with Davide was very easy. He met us at the boat dock near the apartment. The apartment was clean and full of character, as expected from the photos in the airbnb posting.
Davide was great about giving local information - he made a reservation for us at our request - at a local restaurant. He showed us the local grocery and fruit market and even made suggestions of best places for us to visit in Venice during our short stay there. As a bonus, the apartment came with several photo and art books about Venice and Venetian art.
The kitchen was fully supplied so we could cook when we wanted to. Also we were in Venice during a heat wave and Davide had arranged to have a cooler and fans in the apartment. We appreciated the energy efficient (and bright) light bulbs used throughout the apartment. We had a great stay at this apartment and highly recommend it.
Our family stayed at Ca'Prezioso for four days and our experience was generally excellent. The apartment was spacious and spotless, and while not as bright or dramatic as the photos suggest, is located only about 100 meters from a water taxi (vaporetto) stop at Fundamente Novo. Getting there from the airport by ferry was a snap thanks to Davide's detailed instructions. The apartment is on the other side of the island from the madness around San Marco (St. Marks) but you can walk there through the maze of streets in about 20 minutes or take the vaporetto. Walking is more interesting since you see things a tourist might otherwise not see. So: peace plus relative convenience.
Davide had left us a local map with directions to a coop market and some restaurants, so shopping and eating was a snap. There are several restaurants, a pizza place and gelateria on the Fundamente Novo, and having dinner or a drink as the sun set over the sea was great. We would stay there again in a flash.
The only negatives were the following: the apartment is not air conditioned, although there are several fans which helped cool things down. But we were there in the midst of a major heatwave, and although the apartment was relatively cool and dark, AC would have helped. Second, the WiFi signal in the apartment was very weak, and we had problems with that. Easy solved by getting a WiFi amplifier.
Davides appartment is in a fantastic location close to Fondamente Nuove vaporetto station on the quiet side of Venice. The appartment was clean and furnished with style. Davide gave us some great tips for lunch/dinner and how to find our way around. The appartment easily accommodated for the 6 of us. We can highly recommend this place for an unforgettable Venice experience.

About the Host, Davide
We are a Franco-Italian couple, which has been living in Venice for several years now (we precisely live at the Arsenale, Castello district).
We adore Venice; we like to eat (it’s really easy in Venice…we can recommend you very good restaurants). We are passionate about culture, art, music and our Venetian boat (a Sanpierota of 8 meters) but, above all, we are two tireless travelers (we too !).
We rent several apartments in the heart of Venice that we have to complete management. We will be honored to welcome you and provide you the best advice to enable you to spend unforgettable moments in the Serenissima.
Davide and Alessandra
