The apartment is composed of a luminous and roomy living room with completely accessorised kitchen, elegant glass table and comfortable double davenport. The two bedrooms, very roomy, are composed of two double white beds with roomy wardrobes. The restroom is coated in elegant black tiles. Special feature of the restroom: the presence of a particular mosaic on the shower wall.
The area, even though it is central and therefore close to all the important sites of the city, is not the usual destination of the mass tourism: it still maintains the fascination and the smells of the ancient times, and it can be considered the most exclusive neighbourhood in Venice.
Entering the quiet streets that surround the building, you can discover the typical venetian squares with their unique smell, where there are small restaurants managed by venetian families that offer exclusive menus, full of traditions.The apartment is close to the SS Giovanni and Paolo Square, one of the most evocative places in Venice and the ideal starting point to visit Venice, the unique reality in the world where there is no continuity among the places to visit, being the whole city a continuous gathering of art treasures, of breath taking views, of historical and traditional wonders. Walking a few minutes through the streets of the real Venice you can reach St. Mark's Square or the Rialto Bridge, passing by the square Santa Maria Formosa. On the other side, 10 minutes through the popular Sestiere di Castello and you will reach the antique Arsenal of Venice, nowadays one of the most prestigious sites of the Venice Bienalle of arts and architecture. Not far there also are the stops of the public means of transport (the ferries) that create a constant and fast connection with the train station of Venice Santa Lucia and the Marco Polo airport (VCE) or with the isles of the Laguna like Murano with the famous glassworks, Burano and its multicolour houses and the traditional lace, Torcello, where you can admire the basilicas in venetian-Byzantine style.
