Rocksure Venice apartment

Veneto, Italy

An elegant 2 bedroom apartment occupying the "piano nobile" of an exceptional palazzo in the Dorsoduro district of Venice. The apartment is perfectly located, close enough to most of the alluring sights but a comforting refuge away from the tourist trail.

The apartment itself is a wonderful nest in which you and your guests can base yourselves whilst enjoying the many sights, sounds and smells of Venice. The bedrooms are all served by good sized en-suite bathrooms and the snug provides a great ‘chill-out’ room, or additional accommodation for 2 guests in comfortable pull out beds, serviced by its own separate bathroom.

There are few experiences which can compare with walking through the narrow streets and over tiny bridges; visiting one exquisite shop after another; enjoying lunch at a restaurant over looking the Rialto Bridge; or returning home by gondola at midnight along small canals, silent but for the gentle sounds of the gondolier's remo.

Venice is one of the world's most romantic and beautiful city destinations. Once a powerful capital of the Venetian Republic and now a living museum with famous canals lined with noble palaces and glorious churches everywhere.

Region

The region of Veneto is well known for the wonderful city of Venice but also within the bounds are the fascinating destinations of Verona, Padua, Vicenza and Lake Garda. For a substantial period of time the region was under the control of the powerful Venetian Republic and the emblem of Venice, a winged lion, is still seen all around the area.

The Veneto is bursting with history and culture and there is certainly no shortage of places to visit from Venice with her canals, bridge and an abundance of sights to the Roman ruins of Verona as well as the lesser known towns of Treviso, which also has a canal network, Padua, for art historians with the presence of Giotti's frescoes and those keen on archictecture and Vicenza. During the era of the Venetian Republic, rich city dwellers employed the very finest architects, the best know being Andrea Pallladini, to construct the most elegant villas in the countryside. Vicenza is a great place to see some of his Palladian Villas.

Local Area

There is, quite simply, no other city in the world like Venice. Leaving behind your car and the modern world on the mainland, you enter the city’s intriguing, watery world, where an intimate labyrinth of canals and bridges draw you deeper into the bosom of her rich maritime history, embodied in the grand palazzos and churches that line the canals, her symbol, the winged lion of St Mark stolen from Egypt in 828AD setting the tempo for centuries to come…

Taking advantage of the expertise and insider knowledge of our resident Host, you will have the opportunity to discover not only the main attractions of the city with its bustling markets and designer boutiques, but also those quiet moments that still exist beneath the clamour and panoply of the bustling crowds, where the Venice of the Venetians meets around a glass of Spumante on a terrace near to the Arsenal, and young local designers gather for lunch in a former brick factory.
