A city apartment off the beaten track
This apartment is located in a beautiful palazzo located in a quiet part of Venice, in the northwest district Cannaregio. The sidewalk of the main canal in this part of the city (Fondamenta di Cannaregio) is just a few meters from the apartment, and the vaporetto stop is just opposite the canal. Therefore, San Marco square and the other main points of interest are within easy reach. Santa Lucia train station can be reached within 10 minutes on foot or by vaporetto (line 51). You can also take this line to Piazzale Roma, and if you fly into Venice Marco Polo Airport you can take a vaporetto from the airport to Fondamenta Nove.
Grocery stores, a pharmacy, bars, post office and restaurants are no more than 5 minutes on foot. We particularly recommend Trattoria Marisa just next to the apartment. Here you can also order delicious meals to take away. The main points of interest San Marco, the Accademia, and Chiesa della Salute can be reached in 15-20 minutes on foot and, of course, by vaporetto. One of the nicest things about the apartment is that is is centrally located, with shops and restaurants within easy walking distance, yet it is away from the crowds, even during the busy tourist season.
This apartment is part of a gated property. You enter through the garden belonging to the condominium. There are other apartments sharing the entrance a part of the communal garden of the same property. In the past this group of houses used to be called barchesse (wings) of a palazzo dating back to the 16th century. The apartment is located on the ground floor of an ancient but completely restored building. The private terrace is equipped with table and chairs - a perfect spot to rest after a day spent visiting one of the most incredible cities of the world. Arco sleeps 4 people, one adult or 2 children can be accommodated additionally.
Venice is magical, particularly off-season. Travel on foot, by boat, vaporetto or gondola, with 400 bridges, 118 islands and countless streets of water to explore. Visit open-air markets, shops and museums, Accademia, Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Ducal Palace, San Marco, Maritime Museum, Glass Art Museum, Lake Museum, and Ca’Rezzonico 18th-century Venetian Museum. Visit the fabulous La Fenice opera hall, completely rebuilt since the famous fire. Take a boat to the beach or down the Brenta Riviera to Padua. Think of Venice for honeymoons, masks, glass, jewelry & lace.
What to see in Cannaregio
Church of Santa Maria di Nazareth and the Church of the Carmelitani Scalzi (barefoot Carmelites): This church was built in 1660 based on a design by Baldassarre Longhena. The grandiose façade was created by Giuseppe Sardi. An Austrian bomb on 27 October, 1915 caused the frescoed vault designed by Tiepolo to collapse. Today, only a few fragments remain in the galleries of the Accademia di Belle Arti. In 1934 the ceiling was replaced, and it was adorned with a fresco by Ettore Tito. The first chapel in the right-hand nave has a vault frescoed by G.B. Tiepolo.
Square and Church of San Geremia: The church houses the relics of Santa Lucia.
Palazzo Labia: This palace was built at the end of the seventeenth century by the Labias, a family of rich Catalan merchants. The inside is decorated with frescoes by Tiepolo. It is now the headquarters of the Italian state television.
Church of San Giobbe (1450-70): This church has a Renaissance portal designed by Pietro Lombardo. Inside it is decorated with the works of Tuscan artists such as Luca della Robbia.
Jews Ghetto: The term 'ghetto' derives from the foundries located in this area, in which the metal was 'gettato' (thrown) or smelted. In 1509 it became the part of the city that was reserved for the Jews. They built their 'schole' or synagogues here. The first one was the Schola Tedesca (German Synagogue), which was built in 1528. It was followed by the Schola Canton and the Schola Italiana. The Schola Spagnola was rebuilt by Baldassarre Longhena. The German Synagogue houses the museum of Jewish art and contains many fine religious exhibits.
Ca' d'Oro: It was built by Marino Contarini in 1441 employing the best stonemasons of his time. It is considered one of the most striking examples of Venetian Gothic architecture. Its façade features polychrome marble moulding with certain elements overlaid in gold, giving it the name Ca' d'Oro, or 'house of gold'. At one point the palace became the property of Baron Giorgio Franchetti, who donated it to the state in 1916. Now it is a museum housing works by Mantegna, paintings of the Tuscan school and a beautiful collection of Renaissance bronzes.
Oratorio dei Crociferi: This is a treasure trove of works by Palma il Giovane depicting the history of the religious order of the Crociferi, which was founded in the thirteenth century and suppressed in the seventeenth century.
Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli: Built around 1482 based on a design by Pietro Lombardo.
