|Address||San Polo, 30125 Venezia, Italy|
The accommodation comprises: an entrance hall, a small hall with a lovely view over the Grand Canal and Rialto Market, divided into a work area with kitchenette and dining and sitting area with sofa bed, a wardrobe with single bed, a bathroom with shower, a loft bedroom and a small store. Another store is located downstairs.
The accommodation has air conditioning, satellite TV, WiFi.
The small accommodation with Mezzanine, as aforesaid, has just been restored. Only the stairwell to access the apartment, after having been placed in safety, it is still waiting for the authorization of the Superintendence, to which all buildings that overlook the Grand Canal are subject to, for Renovation.
The style of care, the intense brightness, oak beams, gondolas and Grand Canal, give this little garret a unique charm.
The small bright Attic is located in a charming location in the "Campo de la Pescaria", where every day (except Sundays) is held the lively and picturesque Market Town of Fish and Vegetables. This is the only one "Campo" (Square) Venetian overlooking the Canal Grande, which, bordered to the right by the "Fabbriche Nuove" by Jacopo Sansovino, looks at the Ca' d'Oro. Just look out the windows to find yourself in a typically Venetian, to observe the passage of gondolas and motor boats and enjoy the beauty of the palaces on the water. Gone out of the apartment it is found there absorbed in the heart of the city: bars, “bacari”, pubs and restaurants.
The central location allows you to easily reach some of the most famous monuments, including the Basilica dei Frari and the Scuola Grande di San Rocco. After the Rialto Bridge, a 10 minute walk leads through the Haberdashers (“Marzarie” in Venetian) and that is the main commercial artery of the city with its system of “calli” (overlooked by luxury shops and boutiques of high fashion, Gucci, Cartier, Vuitton, Bulgari, etc.), up to Piazza San Marco.
The island of Lido, the exclusive beach of Venice, a true treasure chest of Liberty, where every year there is the Venice International Film Festival, is connected to the mainland by efficient boats, motor boats, speed boats and ferries that call at its major ports.
The Vaporetto Stop "Rialto Mercato" (at 50 meters from the apartment) and the Service Gondola "S. Sofia" (at 20 meters from the apartment) which crosses the Grand Canal, make the apartment easy to access.
To access to the "Campo de la Pescaria" from Piazzale Roma, the maximum limit for access to Venice by car, and from the Railway Station of "S. Lucia", you must take the Line n. 1 of the Vaporetto: Stop "Rialto Mercato".
From the Parking in the locality "Tronchetto" you must take the Line 2 of the Vaporetto: Stop "Rialto". The Rialto Stop is about 300 m from the "Campo de la Pescaria”.

I and my girlfriend spent two wonderful days in this romantic attic, placed in a very special spot.
The apartment is made up of two levels, it is very cozy, well furnished, welcoming and very comfortable. It is also very clean and equipped with everything needed.
The pictures of this apartment, posted in the website, seem too good to be true, so I kept my expectations low, thinking they must have been taken down the street or around the corner. But the views are just as beautiful as they seem.
It was a perfect spot to enjoy a long breakfast - grab some fruit downstairs at the Market, make some coffe, and put your feet up as you watch the boats go by.
The location couldn't be better - so central to everything!
In the surroundings you can find restaurants, “bacari” (typical venetian places to hang out), bakeries, butcher’s shops, deli shops, apothecaries. There is a pharmacy very close, as well as an ATM machine on the corner of the “Calle”. There is even a Vaporetto Stop just 20 meters from the “Campo”, which is perfect for the discovery of the City of Venice.
Michela and her husband were accommodating in every way.
I would highly recommend to my friends and my family to stay there: even an extremely affordable apartment for the area. I LOVED it.
Me and my husband had the pleasure to stay in this super romantic and cosy apartment near the fish market. We stayed here for one week during our wedding and honeymoon in Venice. The owners Michela and Giovanni have been like angels to us. They have received us with great hospitality and are very warm hearted and sweet. Probably one of the nicest persons we have ever met in such a short time.
Beside the fish market there are lot of small groceries, shops and restaurants around the building. Plenty of pizza stops were you can by slices for a cheap penny..
And not to mention the wonderful view of canalgrande, you have two big windows with a beautiful overlook of the big canal, just as beautiful at night as the day. The flat has a sweet and cosy decoration fitting a couple. Really enjoyed the many facilities like free Wifi, TV, air condition in all rooms (Venezian summers are hot!), large bathroom,, fully equipped kitchen, good mattresses, one double on the topfloor and a single matress downstairs, many lights ... After all we had an excellent time at Michela’s and Giovanni’s flat and would definetly recommend others to book for a stay there. We already miss the place and Michela and Giovanni.
