My sister and I, along with our partners started a 3 week European vacation in Vienna in April and May. We wanted to keep costs down and wanted to be immersed in all cultural experiences of all cities and made all arrangements on line using trip advisor as a guide. After a night in Vienna, we took a train to Venice and Residence Palazzo Odoni was exactly what we wanted and MORE.
We walked from the train station and although we got lost, the locals knew the residence and gave great directions. Although it is close to the train station, it is far enough so that you get immersed in the Venetian life style from the start.
With a very unpretentious gate, you ring the door bell and Michele greets you and leads you through the most amazing courtyard. The staircase leads you into a building that is what you imagine a 5th generation Venice villa.
Our apartment was a large one bedroom unit with a living area that could be closed into another sleeping area with a large curtain. There was a nice kitchen with a large table and a huge modern bathroom with a jacuzzi tub/shower and bidet. The decor was again what you would expect of an antique building, and yet with all modern amenities and very clean.
At night candles lined the courtyard and the staircase creating an absolutely romantic setting.
Whenever we opened the gate to enter or leave the apartment, people outside would look in with the same awe we felt when we arrived. The apartment is on a canal within close walking distance to all Venice has to offer. Getting lost in the wonderful streets and canals and finding hidden gems is something that must be experienced by anyone travelling to Venice and Residence Palazzo Odoni is the perfect base.
Michele & Emanuela Giangreco are exactly the type of hosts you would expect from 5th generation residence in Venice - cultured, classy, speaking excellent English with the perfect Italian style.
Thank you both for the excellent start to our European adventure. We hope we can return some day.
