NEL CENTRO STORICO DI VENEZIAExellent lokation if you want to stay away from the crowds but like to experience local life. Quiet, we slept well. Small supermarket, bakery, vegetable store near in the neighbourhood. Many small restaurants by a canal nearby but far away enough not to disturb.
SPLENDIDO APPARTAMENTO NEL CENTRO DI VENEZIAThe flat was great : - very well equiped, you can find everything you need, even for children and babies, - the location is very convenient, it's extremely easy to take the boat in order to go to Murano and Burano, or to take several other vaporetto's lines to visit Venice. - you can also reach the "Canal Grande" by foot within a few minutes - the area is very calm and ful of charm. Marcella, the owner, did everything she could to make our stay pleasant, she's very kind and helpful. She gave us much advice before our arrival about how to use the boat from the airport, she welcomed us with many nice attentions such as a bottle of wine and cakes for instance, which have been very much appreciated. She even added a travel bed for baby in the flat, knowing that it would be more convenient for us. A big thank you to her !
YOUATMOLINOBon emplacement situé dans un endroit calme . Bien desservi par les différents transport .
MINI LOFT IN THE CENTERL'appartement est très bien situé , à deux pas du Rialto et de la place st Marco . Il y a un supermarché tout près également. Andréa est très sympathique et nous avons été très bien accueillis . C'est un peu compliqué à l'arrivée pour se rendre à l'appartement lorsque l'on ne connait pas, nous avons pris un porteur à la station du Rialto 15 € très facile et le porteur a même téléphoné à notre logeur en plus.
CA PARADISO VCESituation idéale pour visiter Venise. Propre et confortable.
SAN LUCASan Luca is a lovely apartment in a perfect location - 5 minutes from the Rialto bridge! Camilla (our contact) couldn't have been more helpful; our flight landed 30 minutes early and she was happy to re-arrange and meet us earlier plus we were able to contact her at any time throughout our stay. I'd happily stay here again and shall recommend it to any friends planning to visit Venice.

Aside from the major tourist attractions in Venice, there are also a huge amount of once-in-a-lifetime experiences to be had throughout the city, from participating in an elaborate masked ball at one of the Palazzos to learning how to cook with an experienced Italian chef. Art and culture lovers will be in their element, too, with trips to the nearby islands of Burano and Murano to learn about the local glass-blowing craft.
Venice is mainly served by the Marco Polo Airport, which is situated 12km outside of Venice, but there’s also the smaller San Giuseppe Airport which sits 30km from the city centre and is frequented by low-cost carriers.
Both airports provide good connections into the centre of Venice, with regular, reliable buses that link up to the Piazzale Roma bus station and Mestre, plus there is a fast ferry from Marco Polo airport into the heart of Venice.
As it’s surrounded by water, Venice is often reached by boat, and there are regular ferries that sail from surrounding countries including Greece, Croatia, and Slovenia.
Venice is such a unique city because it has very few land-based vehicles. The main mode of transport for getting around the city is Vaporetto, or water taxis, which expertly traverse the canals. There are numerous lines, routes, and stops throughout the city, which link up all of the major hotspots as well as the islands that sit further out.
For a more classic form of getting around grab a gondola ride which will provide a much more intimate experience, though it’s slightly pricier than other public options.
The vast majority of sights in Venice are within walking distance of each other, so it’s highly recommended that you wander the streets on your own two feet – a great way to discover hidden gems and really get to know this ancient city.
Exploring Venice like a local means getting lost in the winding labyrinth of streets and ducking into cute curiosity shops and intimate bars. Head to the Quattro Fontane on a Tuesday for the local market which sells all manner of goods, from clothes and shoes to food and household items, wander through lesser-known neighbourhoods like Canneregio and Castello where kids play in parks and elderly Venetians catch up on gossip, and visit the Rialto Market early before the crowds draw in to pick up the best fish and freshly picked vegetables.
