We booked this apartment as we were travelling as a family but also wanted a space to entertain in. We were met by Mr Enrico from the water bus that brought us from the airport. He was very helpful and showed us everything we need to know about the apartment and provided a map and some local recommendations for coffee and dining. Off the tourist track this pleasant two bedroom apartment was perfectly equipped and had been recently refurbished to a high standard with new bathrooms and kitchen.We found it very comfortable and tastefully furnished. Located about 10 minutes walk from St Marks Square and with a good supermarket round the corner it was very convenient. It was in a residential area so although quiet at night it can be at times noisy with chattering locals during the day but this added to the Venetian atmosphere!
