Bellini apartment is situated in an ancient Palazzo found next to the marvellous Scala Contarini del Bovolo, just a stroll away from the Rialto bridge and Piazza San Marco
As if time has stood still, just open any window of the Bellini apartment overlooking the canals surrounding this palace and feel like in the 17th century! Soak up the rich and colorful athmosphere of the prestigious San Marco District, enjoy relaxing on the private terrace admiring the antique palaces.
The Bellini stretches over 210 square meters and is fully air conditioned. The apartment is composed of five double bedrooms (none of the beds can be divided to make twins), four of which have its own ensuite bathroom. The spacious living and dining area form a unique open space, completed with historical furniture and a fireplace (that unfortunately though cannot be used). There is a comfortable double sofa-bed in the living room.
The house can comfortably accommodate up to 12 people while guaranteeing intimacy and full comfort in the living spaces. From the windows of the apartment you can enjoy a splendid view on the canal and at times hear serenades originating from the gondolas passing by.
Furthermore you may treat yourself on the picturesque terrace with the charming view on the masterpiece Scala Contarini del Bovolo which dates back to the XV century. It is an elegantly furnished and very spacious apartment, perfect for family reunions and large groups.

We loved our stay in Venice at the Bellini apartment. Our group consisted of 4 couples, and it was perfect having our own bedrooms and bathrooms which were very elegant. The location, which is a bit tricky to find, turned out to be excellent, within walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and San Marco square. Our favorite point about the Bellini apartment is that it seems to be a main thoroughfare for the gondolas and we enjoyed being seranaded by the gondoliers each evening. Our Truly Venice representative met us promptly upon our arrival and was quite thorough providing us with explanations and directions of places to see and things to do. All in all it was a delightful experience and we would highly recommend it! Thanks,October 2010, Joan (United States)
We love Venice and this apartment was one of the best we have had there. We had a full house of 12 and there was plenty of space for us all, including the beautiful terrace which was well enjoyed. Daniela at Truly venice was so helpful and suggested some great restaurants for us to try! Thank You.September 2010, Wendy (United Kingdom)
I must tell you how much we all enjoyed our vacation in beautiful Venice and at that wonderful apartment. It was just a fantastic time. We were the group of eight who arrived on March 17, left on March 21. Everything was perfect, including the weather, and we all hated to leave. It was just a perfect four days. One of the best things we did was to go to the market at the Rialto and buy gorgeous fresh fish and vegetables and prepare a spread worthy of the setting, all right in the kitchen, which is so well equipped. We loved being serenaded by the gondoliers whenever we were 'home'. Just wonderful. Thank you again for making everything so easy. And please thank the lovely young woman and young man who met us and showed us around. They were just so nice and they helped to make the vacation such a success.March 2011, Alice (United States)
Eleven of us spent 6 nights at the apartment which was perfectly located away from the crowded streets of St Marks Square. We found the apartment clean and spacious and it was perfect having 5 bathrooms . The first night we were all eaten alive by mosquitos but after investing in some plug in mosquito repellents that problem disappeared. The bedrooms on the canals were a little noisy, in the mornings but the bedrooms perfectly comfortable. The kitchen was adequately equipped but maybe could have benefited from another serving dish or bowl as we ate most of our meals at home, and found staying in an apartment with so many a much cheaper and practical than a hotel room . We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will come back!October 2011, Jo (Australia)
Hello, Just to say thank you to your company and staff in Venice. We had a wonderful weekend and the apartment was perfect for our stay. We have been to Venice many times and this was the best apartment and location we have booked. Well done! We hope to revisit Venice again soon and will certainly recommend you to our friends. Many thanks,July 2013, Lesley (United Kingdom)
