Giovanni, the owner, was very helpful when arranging the arrival, giving us clear instructions how to get to the apartment and reacting really quickly to my emails. He also made absolutely brilliant 'user manual' about the apartment (how to operate the appliances, what the do when something does not work, where the nearest supermarket and restaurants are etc.).
The apartment is beautiful and the roof terrace is an absolute win.
It was very quiet there during the night; it was like we are in the middle of nowhere, not in one of the most popular towns in Europe.
The place is a walking distance from the Rialto bridge and St Mark's square. We did set off earlier in the morning so there was not so many people in the streets and it took us about 15 minutes to get to St Mark.
There is plenty of restaurants on the street and Spar supermarket is about 5 minutes walking distance.
The nearest vaporetto station (Orto) where you can get from the Marco Polo airport is about 10 - 15 minutes walk from the apartment.
We really enjoyed our stay, even if the weather was not that good (raining, more or less, 4 days out of 6) and we might come back one day.
Very nice apartment , very very well positioned 10 minutes walking from Santa Lucia train station. The surrounding is quiet and full of nice bars and restaurants but not as commercial and crowded as the rest of the city . The apartment is nice and has everything you need . Only problem might be 3rd floor without elevator. About the rest is ok. Recommended
