The Alilaguna Orange line offers direct transfer from Marco Polo Airport to Rialto.

Un endroit parfait

Appartement très bien situé, propre et spacieux. Les petits plus proposés nous ont facilité le séjour avec notre jeune fils (poussette, lit parapluie...) Francesco a été très à l'écoute et disponible. Je recommande.

Great apartment at a top location in Venice

We really enjoyed our stay in Venice in this apartment. It is a top location in Venice. It was very hot in Venice when we were there but the apartment had very good airconditioning. Rachele and Francesco were very friendly and helpful and gave us some very good tips on places to go and places to eat.

Cómodo, limpio bien equipado

El apartamento nos encantó. Cómodo, limpio bien equipado con una ubicación inmejorable justo al lado del Puente de Rialto, rodeado de tiendas, supermercados y todo lo necesario. Aunque la entrada a la casa se ve antigua y con poca reforma el interior se ajusta a la información que venía en la Web. A unos minutos de la plaza de San Marcos y de los innumerables sitios que se pueden visitar. La atención de Francesco y Rachele ha sido muy buena faciltandonos información de todo lo que podiamos necesitar. No lo recomendaría para personas con problemas de movilidad por no tener ascensor pero sí a mis amigos sin dudarlo ni un momento. Por lo demás se ajusta a la información que venía en la Web. La ubicación perfecta!!!

Would come back again!

My family of 4 stayed at Francesco's place for 2 nights. His place was even better than we thought! The kitchen had all the necessities and he even pre-stocked some breakfast items. This place also has a smart TV with Netflix which was great! The location was central to all of the top sights. The Rialto Bridge was just several meters away and the water bus station was just past the bridge. We loved all the information Francesco provided prior to arrival and he was extremely helpful. He met us at the water bus station and walked us to his place and even brought up all of our luggage. If we ever go back to Venice, we will definitely stay here again.

The location is perfect, a few steps from the Rialto bridge. Francesco and Rachele went above and beyond what we expected to make our stay as comfortable as posible. Thank you very much for all your help, tips, etc.
