The Aida apartment is a truly glamorous apartment located only few meters from the famous Fenice Theatre, in the heart of the San Marco District
The location is possibly the best in Venice’s historical center for its quiet, beauty and central position. The vaporetto stop and the supermarket are only two minutes away and there are plenty of excellent restaurants and cafés nearby.
Aida is on the 2nd floor of an historic Palazzo equipped with an elevator. The palazzo has been owned for almost a century by the same family who completely renovated it in 2014 and now offered it to our privileged guests.
Full of natural light, the interiors are in a cosmopolitan Parisienne style, elegantly furnished with vintage pieces including French industrial lamps from the 40s matching the style of a Doimo kitchen, Danish designer chairs from the 50s, a Shanghai style table with an original 70sParentesi lamp by Achille Castiglioni, beautiful natural oak parquet flooring in the living room and kitchen, original XIX Century Venetian terrazzo flooring in the bedrooms and bathrooms, original modern paintings by a well-known artist, and exquisite linen curtains and upholstered beds and sofas. An extra touch of class:is the original 60s Murano glass chandeliers from the Pauly collection. The result is a clean and comfortable ambience that accommodates anyone’s tastes.
Beside the location and the superb interior design, the great feature of the Aida apartment is definitely the picturesque views on the canal that can be enjoyed from the living room and bedrooms: looking out the windows you can see gondolas gliding by on the calm emerald waters.
The Aida apartment is about 80 square meters large and consists of a living and dining room with a comfortable sofa and a table for up to 6 people; a functional kitchen equipped with brand new appliances;two bedrooms each with queen-sized beds that can set up as two singles on request; and two full bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bathtub.
The apartment is equipped with a “not-to-be-taken-for-granted” set of Hutschenreuther Maria Theresia weiß porcelain tableware, a set of professional cooking pots and pans, induction cooking plates, a dishwasher, washing machine, oven, microwave, professional American coffee maker, large fridge and freezer, kettle and much more. Every room is equipped with an efficient air-conditioning system and there is climate controlled heating, Wi-FiIn the living room there is and a Smart TV.
The Aida apartment, named after the well-known Opera from Giuseppe Verdi, which has been performed at the Fenice Theatre, is one of three apartments available in this palazzo and can be combined with the Salomé studio and/or the Tosca apartment, both on the 1st floor.

We go every two years to Venice and try a different rental through Truly Venice who are really great - very efficient staff, cooperative and kind. The Aida apartment was fine, even if lacking a little soul! Everything functioned beautifully and the cleaner did an excellent job after 5 days. The location, on a canal behind the Fenice is convenient and not too far from the Giglio vaporetto stop.Octobre 2017, Julia (France)
Great 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. We especially enjoyed the singing gondoleirs passing by on the canals. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were nice and light.May 2017, M. Soderland (United States)
A fantastic visit! Enrico met us at the vaparetto stop and took us straight to the apartment. A terrific apartment, close to everything, but quiet at night. Plenty of space, all the amenities and very comfortable. Made for a great stay and would love to stay here again if we ever return to Venice.January 2017, Duncan (Western Australia)
La única queja que podria hacer, es la de que la vajilla es super limitada y siendo como es, un apartamento con todo lujo de detalles, entre ellos lavavajillas, me parece que tener cuatro copas y cuatro vasos y pocos platos te obliga a hacer un gasto inutil del lavavajillas. Hay otra cosa que hemos echado en falta, y es, la ausencia de mosquiteras en las ventanas. Literalmente, nos han freido los mosquitos. Por lo demas, todo satisfactorio (limpieza, localización, estilo...) Muy agradable la chica que vino a recibirnos, dándonos todo lujo de detalles sobre todo aquello que le preguntamosAugust 2016, Julian (Spain)
The Aida apartment is very spacious and comfortable; large bedrooms, lounge /dining area, modern kitchen and bathrooms. Location is great, close to everything in the San Marco / Rialto area and the canal just outside the windows is perfect to see and hear the many gondolas gliding by with music and songs. The best stay we've had Venice!July 2016, Warren (Australia)
A fabulous location, a large and comfortable space overall and great AC (needed in July!). The beds were comfortable, the two bathrooms were handy with a family of four, and everything worked well. The views from the windows are even better than pictured! We had singing gondaliers whenever we opened the windows during the day. Thanks Truly Venice!July 2016, Leah (Canada)
Both Aida and Tosca are wonderful apartments in a great location. Close to St. Marks square, vaporetto stop, shops, restaurants and a grocery store.June 2016, Terry (United States)
Firstly I must praise Truly Venice the agents. They were amazingly efficient in answering pre booking enquiries and their on the ground representative who took us to our apartment went the extra mile in settling us in to our apartment. They have the best choice of quality apartments in Venice by far and I would not hesitate to use them again. Apartment Aida is situated directly behind La Fenice theatre right above a canal which can be enjoyed from a number of rooms in the apartment. There is an elevator which was a must for my 80 yr old mother. The apartment was spotlessly clean with two bathrooms, a well appointed kitchen and living room. The beds were super comfy. My only request that a couple of lamps in the lounge would have made it feel more cosy.June 2016, Julie (United Kingdom)
This apartment is very conveniently located to St. Mark's Square and has plenty of space for 4 people. It was very clean, but lacking in creature comfort amenities, such as end tables and extra chairs that were comfortable. The two bathrooms were a luxury, but the main bath had not one single shelf or space to place any item on. The shower, though new and clean, was such a tight fit that even an average-sized person could not bend over in it comfortably and again, nowhere to even put a bar of soap. The washer was nice to have, but lack of a dryer was inconvenient. Also, English language instructions for operating the washer and dishwasher would have been helpful. I would recommend this place to a friend if they were aware of the lack of amenities.May 2016, Susan (CO)
We stayed in Aida apartment for three weeks in February when the weather was cold. The apartment was warm and comfortable apart from a strong draft coming from the stairwell and under the apartment door. This we remedied by rolling up a bath mat as a draft excluder. The area is central and has easy access to the Simply supermarket, bakers, good wine shops etc. We know Venice really well so the easy daily walk to the market was a bonus. The apartment is newly furnished and the bed and bath linens are top quality. The furniture is comfortable, fashionable but a bit bland for our taste - we would have liked some books to personalise it better. The kitchen has a american coffee machine which we hated as living in Italy we are used to better coffee machine that make stronger coffee. As it was new the kitchen lacked a few things that you would expect to find in an Italian kitchen - cheese grater, expresso cups and pot, frying pan and griddle etc. Once this had been mentioned to Truly Venice things were bought and delivered by one of the team the next day. The downsides of the apartment were a lack of hot water for a bath although the heating was great and a dining table that was far too big, seating up to eight. This took up far too much room and the sofa only sat three people - there was no other comfortable seating so if you were four staying it could be an issue. There was also no coffee table to put cups, glasses, books etc whilst you were sitting. The upsides were quality furnishings and fittings, good heating in winter,a well maintained building, a fairly quiet and central location, a lift ( a rarity in Venice) and very good service from Truly Venice. I extended my stay by a few days whilst there with no problems.February 2016, Jenny (Italy)
