I am very sociable and cheerful. I love to know people who come from every part of the world, for me to know new people and how to make a journey. I am expecting you in Venice. Ciao !!! Paola
From the moment we stepped off the water taxi and were met by Paola and her Mamma we knew we had picked the right place! Paola was kind, helpful and let us borrow maps and a guidebook which came in handy.The apartment is a stone's throw from the Rialto Bridge. The apartment is well set up and furnished with beautiful antique furniture. It was very clean and the kitchen is useful. We enjoyed making a simple meal there one night. We both agree that this was our favourite place to stay whilst we travelled around Italy and would definitely recommend staying here to anyone else!
Paola's flat is THE place to enjoy a pleasant trip in Venise! Very well located and in a dynamic part of the city with a lot of restaurants and shops. We appreciate the flat that has all the comodities needed. Very clean and confortable!
We've just come back from 3 magical days in Venice. The apartment was everthing we needed , and more .... Paola and Cinzia (and Mama) were so welcoming and helpful, making us feel immediatly at home. The location could not have been better, only a minutes walk from the Rialto bridge and waterbus stop. We cannot wait to return for a longer visit.
Paola, Cinzia, and Mama:
Thank you so much for making our stay in Venice a memorable experience. It was great to come home to a cozy apartment after a day of sightseeing, and right in the heart of the city. We felt like true Venetians! WE highly recommend this apartment if you want a great stay in Venice. Plenty of room and everything you need.

Location, location, location! We stayed with our 7 month daughter and everything was super easy. The apartment is immaculately clean and very italian, with cotton sheets and a big double bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need if you would like to cook properly. Proper food shops are nearby and not extortionate. We had a great time. The hosts are a delight too. Thank you Paola x
What a wonderful place! Paola and Cinzia were excellent hosts and make you feel so welcome. They were extremely helpful with advice and tips for places to see and places to eat. The apartment itself was very clean and well furnished and has everything you need. It is situated in the heart of Venice right next to the Rialto Bridge and the water bus stops on the Grand Canal which made seeing the city so much easier. I will definitely be back and if you're thinking of staying in Venice, I highly recommend Paola and Cinzia's apartment!
Beautiful apartment, best location in Venice! Only downside is the lack of wifi for which we ended up going to McDonald's but otherwise 10/10! Lovely hosts, met us and showed us to the apartment and offered very helpful recommendations. Would go back in an instant! Thank you!
Perfect apartment, great location to get the feel of living like a Venetian. Surrounded by amazing coffee shops, restaurants and shops and cathedrals. Definitely want to return very soon!
We had such a wonderful time staying in Paola and Cinzia's apartment. They couldn't have been better hosts--warm, helpful and brimming with useful information. The apartment is just lovely with everything you need to relax after enjoying the city--and with an ideal location right at the Rialto Bridge. We would certainly stay again! Grazie mille Paola and Cinzia!
Paola's appartment is a fantastic place to spend the holidays in Venice. It is literally 3 mins walk (I've actually counted) to Ponte Rialto, and all you need to do is to keep walking following the road signs to get to ALL major sites in venice. (e.g. to Piazza san marco about 15-20 min walk). The apartment definitely is much better than the photos here, and is very clean, and super cozy. Agree the place definitely makes you feel as if you were living like a local,and would STRONGLY RECOMMEND.
Note: Internet connection is not provided (as per description), but there is an internet cafe 2-3 mins walk from the apartment. I didn't mind this, but wouldn't be perfect for those who cannot bear "not staying online". For me, the warm greetings from the 2 ladies and the cozy place had well made up for the slight inconvenience.
