This apartment is easy to access, only 2 minutes’ walk to the Rialto Mercato Vaporetto stop and located at the first floor of a beautiful 17th century historic building. The entrance door at the ground floor is used exclusively by this apartment hence maximum privacy is guaranteed. Being located off the main tourist itinerary this apartment is very quiet despite the vicinity to the Market.
This apartment is perfect for those who like to experience a romantic holiday on the Grand Canal, or those who are curious to try the delicious Venetian cuisine, either cooking at home the fresh produce available at the Rialto Market close by, or dining at the many fine restaurants found in the San Polo District.
San Polo is a maze of quiet Calli (lanes) and pleasant Campi (little squares). One of the most important places of this district is Campo San Polo, the second widest square of the city after St. Mark’s Square, where local children and pets can run around and play games while adults chat, in summer there is an open-air cinema, in winter an ice-skating ring.
San Polo is known for its fine but reasonably priced Osterie and Bacari (informal traditional restaurants and bars) where you can find locals and connoisseurs. This district is in fact not touristy at all, exception made for the area of the Rialto Bridge, where the busy and colourful Rialto Market takes place every morning (Sundays excluded).

We spent a wonderful week in Venice in early August 2019 in this lovely apartment which was recommended by close friends who had stayed there several times and were extremely happy with it. We were a little apprehensive about all the arrangements working out properly but everything worked perfectly. The Truly Venice people were very responsive to our requests for information prior to our arrival. Before and during our stay they were easily contactable by email and phone and text which made us feel secure in the arrangements. We requested to pay in advance by electronic bank transfer and that worked well. At our request they arranged a water taxi from the train to the apartment and later to the airport when we left. When we arrived a person was waiting to meet us at the water taxi which stopped a few meters from the apartment. We did not even have to walk over a bridge. On our request they arranged a porter to carry our (too heavy) luggage down the apartment stairs to the water taxi when we left. Being English speaking ourselves we were delighted to find their English communication very good. The apartment was on the first floor up a flight of stairs. It is spacious, airy and light with wooden floors. It felt relaxing being there. It has good air conditioning. The large lounge/dining room has 2 large windows that look directly onto the grand canal as in the website photo. It was a magical experience. The bedroom was spacious and bed comfortable. The bathroom was spacious with a walk-in shower which was welcome for us. The kitchen had everything necessary plus a washing machine and iron. The apartment was very clean. Being on the grand canal and with people walking along it, we wondered about noise. We were surprised to find that with the windows closed it was very quiet at night and we slept well and undisturbed. We felt safe and secure in the apartment. The position is fantastic. It’s right beside the Rialto markets and the line 1 Rialto Mercato vaparetto water bus stop. There are lots of restaurants in the same and nearby streets. It was very much less congested with tourists compared to other areas. It’s easy walking and boat rides to anywhere in Venice. We have recommended this to friends and would definitely stay there again.August 2019, Yvonne (USA)
Apartment AlbaD’Oro was perfect exactly as Truly Venice had shown. Everything was spotless, all appliances worked, the bed was wonderfully comfortable and the bed lining crisp and fresh. Constant hot water with a shower that worked well and of course the view were the icing on the cake. This apartments location was great with water buses and a lovely food market on its doorstep. Thank you soooo much Truly Venice for great communication whilst planning my holiday and for being at the apartment to welcome me on my arrival. Venice didn’t disappoint. We stayed for a week and had a fabulous time. Although we had no problems I felt confident Truly Venice were there to help if needed.April 2019, Amy (USA)
This was our sixth year staying in this lovely 1-bedroom apartment, located in the same palazzo as the Hotel Orologio, 100 yards from the Rialto Markets, with a great view of the Grand Canal. The apartment -- one flight of stairs up from the street -- has been modernized, and it is very livable, but with old-world features, including the date 1843 in mosaic on the floor in the entry. We cannot imagine a lovelier place from which to discover the most delightful city of Venice.March 2019, Barry (USA)
Nous venons de passer 15 jours très agréables dans cet appartement magnifiquement placé face à la Ca D’Oro. La vue est superbe. L’appartement est très confortable pour deux. Le salon salle à manger est spacieux et lumineux , avec la vue sur le grand canal. La chambre est spacieuse, la salle de bain suffisamment grande. Le marché est à 50 m et il est très agréable d’y aller faire ses courses car tout est disponible. La cuisine est correctement équipée. En hiver le chauffage a été très efficace, ce qui est très appréciable à Venise. Bon accueil de la part de Truly Venice (et notamment Enrico). Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.Janvier 2019, Chris (France)
In perfect position with a stunning view of the grand canal and its daily activities. A comfortable apartment, beautifully clean and decorated with Italian style. Next to he market so making home cooked meals was a pleasure in the fully equipt kitchen.November 2018, Xin (United States)
L'appartement est très beau, très bien situé à quelques pas du marché aux poissons, et du vaporetto (juste un pont à traverser). L'appartement est bien chauffé, comme c'est rarement le cas à Venise, et donc agréable à vivre. Le seul problème était le douche. L'appartement se trouve au premier étage, l'escalier est un peu raide comme c'est souvent le cas à Venise. Les pièces sont grandes, la déco chaleureuse. Le séjour qui donne sur le Grand Canal est très cosy. Le lit dans la chambre est grand, et le matelas est très confortable (c'est très important). La chambre contient beaucoup de rangement pour les vêtemenets. La cuisine est très bien équipée, avec lave vaisselle, micro-ondes, four électrique, bouilloire électrique, etc. Je ferai juste une critique concernant la salle d'eau. Cette dernière est agréable, mais au niveau de la douche, c'est à revoir : il n'y a même pas un élément dans la douche pour poser son gel douche, son shampoing, etc. Vraiment pas pratique. De plus la pomme de douche en forme de peigne est malcommode et la cabine sans porte avec un rideau plastique pas terrible. C'est le seul point noir, mais tout le reste était tellement parfait qu'on oublie facilement...December 2018, Jennifer (France)
Alba d'Oro is in the most extraordinary position, on the edge of the Grand Canal with a view of the glorious façade of Ca d'Oro straight ahead, and the fish market to the right. Constant delight to watch the light change on the water and the buildings throughout the day. Extremely easy to access, the waterbus stop of Rialto Mercato is only a five minute walk. The flat itself is beautifully decorated, well-equipped, warm and comfortable. Any questions or problems we had during our stay were dealt with quickly and efficiently by Truly Venice's local team. Absolutely excellent and highly recommendable.November 2018, Jennifer (France)
Clean, spacious, nicely appointed and decorated. Private and quiet with an amazing view! Directly acrosss from Ca’ Doro and Ca’Sagredo. Two spectacular palazzos on the Grand Canal!!September 2018, Keith (Australia)
We loved our home in Venice! Perfect location and amazing view watching Venetian life on the Grand Canal. The apartment was clean, with everything we needed. Would definitely stay there again.June 2018, Linda (Australia)
Alba d'Oro is a one-bedroom first floor (one up from the street) flat in a palazzo that also houses the new Hotel L'Orologio on a quiet street on the south side of the Grand Canal 350 feet west of the Rialto Markets. In other words, it is perfectly located for someone wishing to see Venice as a vacation spot for a week or more, rather than on a two-day tour where you rush from sight to sight. The Rialto Bridge is a 3-minute walk, the Doge's Palace and the Piazza are a 12-minute walk, and the neighborhood is relatively quiet and has all the shops and restaurants you need within a 5-minute walk. The flat itself has been updated, and is completely serviceable. Oh, and the view out the two large living room windows is worth the journey; my wife stand there with our morning coffee or our evening drink (or any other moment of the day) watching the world go by -- and in Venice, it all goes by boat. Deliveries of just everything take place on the dock just outside the windows. This was our 6th stay in this flat, and we wouldn't go anywhere else. The rooms are spacious; the kitchen has what you need and it works; even the shower is fully enclosed and has all the hot water you need. This flat really is an ideal romantic getaway. oh, and charming -- a mosaic in the entry floor discloses that one renovation was in.....1831. It really is cool.March 2018, Barry (United States)
Alba d'Oro is our favourite holiday apartment in the world! We loved watching traffic on the Grand Canal at all times of the day and night, shopping at Rialto Mercato, cooking in the apartment and having drinks in nearby bars. Everything is so spotlessly clean and staying for 10 days meant that we had cleaning and a full linen change half-way through. This was our second stay in three years at Alba D'Oro and we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else on future visits to Venice.October 2017, Lizzy (Australia)
This apartment was spacious and beautiful with original wide plank floors, original beamed ceilings, and big windows that open onto the breathtaking views and sounds of the Grand Canal. Everything I read said to stay away from staying in San Marco during the month of August. We are so glad we took that advice. The apartment is a four minute walk to the Rialto bridge but it feels a world away from the crowds of tourists on the streets. The bedroom was spacious with good closet and drawer space. The kitchen and bathroom as well were clean, new, spacious, and well equipped. The decor is elegant and the furniture comfortable. The Murano glass chandeliers hanging from the high beamed ceilings gave the rooms an authentic Veneziana touch. We highly recommend this apartment and hope it is as well kept and comfortable when we return.August 2016, Ally (United Kingdom)
Dear Everyone, I have been home now for 5 weeks and have meant to write this letter everyday. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for everything. From the start you have all been wonderful to deal with. Very prompt and nothing was ever a problem. Even your cleaning staff were lovely. checking in and out was a breeze. I spent 26 nights in your Alba D'Oro apartment and just adored it. It was so pretty and being able to look out the windows every day and night at such a stunning view was amazing. I felt safe all the time in and out of my apartment. It is such a beautiful area San polo and it was great to get to know it. I have showed a lot of people the photos of my apartment and recommended your company and apartments to anyone who will listen... Thank you againJune 2017, Lucia (Australia)
The apartment was terrific -- clean, updated, with everything one needs for two weeks (or a lifetime). It has a Grand Canal view, and is 500' from the Rialto markets. So, getting everywhere is convenient, and shopping was a dream. The apartment was well-serviced (spotless), and well equipped; the greeter was punctual, knowledgeable and most helpful. This was our 15th vacation in Venice, and the facilities and service were the very best. I cannot say enough positive about the agency and the apartment. And, we are fussy.April 2015, Joan (United States)
To begin, we greatly enjoyed our stay in the apartment Alba D’Oro! The apartment is very well-located, just close enough to the action without having the crowds and noise. The apartment, bedding, dishes, the bathroom were very clean. The kitchen is well equipped to cook; believe me I cook for a living. The contact person on site took the time to explain the functioning of the apartment and even provide us with a map to locate grocery, restaurant etc. If one day I have the chance to return to Venice, I would stay with Truly Venice! Merci!May 2015, Gilbert (Canada)
We are already making plans to come back for a month and stay here. Right by an amazing market. Quiet but close to everything. Beautiful view on the grand canal.March 2016, Mike (United States)
My wife and I have stayed in Alba D'Oro for the last half-dozen years, and we are thrilled to have found this perfect one-bedroom flat with the living room windows overlooking the Grand Canal opposite the Ca D'Oro, only one block from the Rialto Markets, and less than 10 minutes from St. Mark's Square. In an 1853 remodel of a Palazzo adjacent to the Hotel L'Orologio, you are up one original flight of stairs into a delightfully preserved (walls, ceiling, floor) but redone (windows, plumbing, electrical) building in a location you can't beat. The kitchen is properly equipped; the bath spacious and functional; the bedroom has 2 windows, a king bed, and adequate storage; and the living/dining room is spacious and comfortably furnished (good reading chairs and lighting). The price is quite reasonable for a view of the Grand Canal.April 2016, Barry (United States)
Wonderful apartment! We spent a week at alba D'Oro in Venice, and we enjoyed the whole experience. The location, very close to the Rialto Mercato vaporetto stop, is perfect for walking everywhere. The apartment is beautiful and overlooks the Grand Canal. The rooms are large and beautifully furnished. The bed is comfortable and there is plenty of storage space. The kitchen is great, and we made a number of meals using the Rialto market to supply us. Truly Venice was very easy to work with. Both deposit and final payment could be made by credit card. They also have a complete book of instructions located in apartment. Every rental agency should do this. It can be very difficult to remember how to operate the washing machine after getting verbal instructions days earlier! The book also includes sightseeing suggestions as well as recommended restaurants. This is our "return to" apartment in Venice!November 2013, Winnie (United Kingdom)
Brilliant and beautiful This is the second time we have used Truly Venice for accomodation in Venice and again the didnot disappoint. The company is extremely professional and courteous from the booking arrangements to being met at our apartment, nothing is a bother. The apartments are well maintained and contain everything that is needed, especially in the kitchen, from cutlery to condiments to coffee makers. Our stay this time at apartment alba D'Oro was faultless. The accomodation was excellent and the view and location, priceless. I will use this company again and have recommended it to many people. Thankyou Daniela for another wonderful Venetian experience.October 2013, Sally (Australia)
Magical views set the scene for a wonderful 9 days The experience from the water taxi pickup at the airport to the greeting at the canal side to the apartment - were all first rate. The apartment is spacious, the views from the lounge extraordinary and location first rate. The Rialto markets are 5 minutes away, and have great seafood and fruit and vegetables. Nothing to criticise.May 2013, Judy (Australia)
We could not fault this Grand Canal apartment. It was very clean and spacioous and ideally located. The fish and produce markets were right next door and the views were spectacular. We were there in the middle of winter and were grateful that the heating was so efficient given it was at times below zero degrees at night. Thank you to the staff at Truly Venice who was most welcoming and helpful showing us through the apartment. Can highly recommend the water taxi pick up and drop off service. We even hired it or a two hour trip to Murano and Burano in his water taxi. When we are next in Venice we will definitely rent through Truly Venice. Thank you for helping make our 5 nights in Venice so memorable and comfortable!!!February 2013, Jay (Australia)
Just wanted to thank you for another wonderful Venetian experience. This is now the third time we have rented Alba d'Oro from you and we truly love the place. We hope that it remains available for many years to come. My sister visited us for a day while we were there and was instantly in love with the apartment. She plans to rent it in the future with my other sister. I am not sure when that will be but knowing her, it will happen.April 2014, Tim (United States)
Truly Venice's Alba d'Oro one-bedroom apartment really is the perfect place for a couple wishing a romantic sojourn in Venice. The apartment itself is comfortable; the living room furniture is lovely for reading and also taking naps; the dining room table seats 6 (or two looking directly out the windows at the Ca d'Oro across the Grand Canal); we used the kitchen to cook breakfasts, lunches and even a gourmet dinner (all ingredients were bought at the Rialto Markets, which are ~ 100 yards away, across a bridge over a tiny canal). The bedroom has adequate storage and a comfortable queen bed, and the bathroom works just fine (complete with a new stall shower). There is a washing machine, dishwasher, all the appliances and kitchenware you need. Oh, and a mosaic in the floor showing that the palazzo was remodelled in 1851. Really cool. But the location is really the kicker. You get a great front-seat view of the Grand Canal; down one flight of stairs is Calle dei Boteri -- a relatively quiet commercial street where there are restaurants and shops; you're very close not only to the Rialto Markets but also to the shopping area adjacent to the markets; and the "more authentic" San Polo neighborhood is right there. The Rialto Bridge is maybe 4 minutes away, maybe less, and in 10 minutes you're in St. Mark's Square. And there is a dock right outside the apartment where you can arrive from the airport by water taxi (or you can use the Rialto Market Vaporetto stop, 200 yards away, or the Rialto Alilaguna/Vaporetto stop just across the Rialto Bridge). The apartment is in the same palazzo as the Hotel L'Orologio, so you have a great place to get a drink or fancy breakfast within 100 feet of your door. Friends came to visit us and stayed there. In sum, Alba d'Oro is a lovely place to park yourself in a fantastic location with a perfect view, quiet but close to everything. We return for 2 weeks every year, and just reserved it for next yearApril 2017, Barry (UK)
