Go to Italy: Venice Campo Polo apartment : Description
Like this Venice apartment? Contact us or email and then submit the booking form. Finito!
This Venice apartment for up to 4 people is situated overlooking a small canal in the ancient area sestiere di San Polo. The apartment is very central and you can easily walk to most of the famous sites of Venice. However, a trip down the canals with a Vaporetto bus is always worth the experience and the photos you can take.
The apartment is accessed through a common entrance hall on the ground level, followed by a private entrance hall, cloak room, stairs to the first floor, bathroom, double bedroom, large sitting room (with double sofa bed) and kitchen. The bedroom and sitting room windows looks onto Canale delle Erbe. There is also an entrance from the canal through the characteristic water gate - little used but fascinating.. Pictures of the apartment.
The wooden beams and original brick-work give that venetian feeling - inside and out!
The building was the dependance of the Palazzo Marcello Grimaldi and is reached through Campiello delle Erbe (a "Campiello" being a small pedestrian square). Being in a cul de sac the apartment is also very peaceful. Shops are near by at the unusually large square of Campo San Polo (large by Venice standards!). The Canal Grande is very close to the apartment and the famous St. Mark's square can be reached in a matter of minutes by crossing the Rialto bridge (where you could get waylaid by the wonderfully colourful market). Even closer is the splendid church of the Frari and the ancient venetian School of San Rocco - a wealth of history, architecture and art, where works by the likes of Tintoretto and Titian abound and every stone tells a story.
The ancient city Republic of Venice La Serenissima needs little introduction. It should suffice to say that the flat is very central and guests certainly have the opportunity to see Venice in comfort from the 'inside', shielded from the noise of the vaporetti buses and water traffic present on the Canal Grande.
When we last went the Vaporetto bus along the Canal Grande cost us in the region of Euro.6 a ticket. A 3 day ticket costs Euro.30 and is worth while - it's so easy to hop on and off the vaporetto and go all over! A water taxi cost in the region of 60 Euro and half an hours' Gondola ride somewhat more (but exciting). However, there's a lot to be said for just wandering round, too!
