Private Apartment - San Marco

Venice, Italy

San Marco Apartment - Private 1 Bedroom Apartment - just steps from Sant Marks Square
San Marco - Venice - Italy

Sleeps - 2 plus 2

A delightful, sun-filled rooftop apartment in the most desirable are of Venice. The interior is classy and the altana terrace, up a few steps from the living room, is glorious. From that perch take in the domes of San Marco, the rooftops of the city. If that weren't enough, just below are two canals where gondolas glide to and fro. You won't regret the hours you can spend just watching the pace of life on Venetian canals.

The San Marco Apartment is steps from Piazza San Marco, Saint Marks Piazza, with the eponymous Basilica. The large piazza flows with life with locals meet and greet as well as with rivers of tourists. You can pause to enjoy classical music and a very expensive cup of coffee in one of the outdoor cafés.  Wander along canal side streets, over a few bridges and there you are. The location is so central, you can easily reach all the wonders of Venice, returning during the day to drop packages and rest your feet.

The building is on a dead end calle. The main door is locked for security. The lobby is large and clean. At this level is a shared laundry room. San Marco Apartment is on the 5th Floor (American designation), 4th Italian and an elevator rises all the way.

Happy first impressions as you step into the large, light filled living room. Windows overlook canals. There is lots of room in the living room with a double sofa bed (can sleep one or two children) and love seat as well as some really pretty pieces of furniture. A statue of a moor shows the way to the steps to the deck. Fine design sense pools all these interesting things together. The television receives Italian channels, no satellite reception. In the opposite direction is a large dining space next to the kitchen. The owner is an enthusiastic cook and has made sure that when she spends a weekend in Venice, everything she needs is present in the kitchen. A short hallway leads to the bedroom with the ensuite bathroom on the immediate right. The bathroom has just been redone all in white tiled curves. A corner shower has glass doors. The bedroom is not large but has a wall of closets so it is totally functional. The bedroom and bathroom fit under eves, so have a slanted wall, but the eves aren't so deep that you have to duck to accommodate.
