The B&B is located in the quarter of Cannaregio, a part of the city that offers an authentic taste of Venetian life and little-known artistic gems. Only a five-minute walk from the train station, within fifteen minutes of Saint Mark's Square, and even closer to the ancient Jewish Ghetto, this lovely loft is a great base to explore the city on foot and by boat, and to embark towards the history-laden islands of Murano (with its world-famous glass makers), Burano and Torcello. The apartment is on the top floor of a sixteenth-century building. The bed-room reserved for guests is spacious and bright, with its own private deck, air-conditioning, television set, radio, and an adjacent bathroom. I take a particular care preparing the breakfast, you find always fresh bread, butter, marmalade, orange juice, yogurt, brioches, biscuits, müesli, corn flakes, and anything you need for a good breakfast. In the good season, if you like, the breakfast could be served on the terrace, and in the winter season, is served in the kitchen.

I contacted Antonio to check on availability for a 3 night stay in his apartment. His room was booked but offered a full apartment in the same building. The apartment was amazing. Overall it was very spacious, clean, nicely furnished with a well stocked kitchen. The apartment consisted of a large bedroom with plenty of storage, a smaller living room with a sitting area and book shelf, a bath and a nicely sized kitchen with everything you need including a washing machine. Antonio supplied us with cereal, toast, sweet bread, yogurt, milk, butter and jam for breakfast! Yummy! The apartment is located within a short walking distance from the train station. Not too many steps either! It is just off a lively street down an alley way so it was fairly quiet at night. The location was great! We contacted Antonio with any questions we had and he was always quick to respond. He advised us on the best option for getting to the airport (water bus). Gave us tips on restaurants and supplied us with a map. A great host! We loved staying in his apartment. It was nice having so much space after weeks of staying in single room B&B's! I would defiantly stay here again if I am fortunate enough to make it back to Italy!
The bedroom is very fascinating and colourful with many antiques, ornaments and books. All rooms are stylishly decorated by original pieces of furniture that belonged to my family with beautiful old tiles, paintings and original ancient prints.
