Eclectic ground floor two-bed in San Marco

This beautifully renovated ground floor flat is perfectly located for exploring Venice. St. Mark’s Square and Rialto Bridge are just a short stroll away, but you’ll have to tear yourself away from the tremendous views through those large arched windows, where you can sit and watch the gondolas glide by with your morning coffee. There are two double bedrooms, but this former Venetian palace can easily accommodate five guests.

Private double room in traditional apartment in Dorsoduro

A large double room in a wonderfully old building awaits guests. You won’t have the place to yourself, but you’ll have access to all the amenities and your own private bathroom. One major perk of sharing with the host is you can opt for breakfast in bed, if you fancy it. Which you surely will, no?
