Ca' Pesaro Piano Nobile offers the opportunity to live in a classic Venetian apartment with a picturesque canal view, large Istria stone balcony, elevator and plenty of living space
This newly renovated, spacious and gracious first floor apartment in a historic palace, is located in the Santa Croce District steps from the Canal Grande near the San Stae vaporetto (water bus) stop. (The piano nobile - noble floor - is the high-ceilinged central floor in every Venetian palazzo where the sitting rooms and balls rooms were located.) Venetian residents love this part of the city as it has remained authentic and quiet and not too touristy.
There are three bedrooms (one double and two that can be set up as doubles or twins) and two newly renovated full bathrooms with showers. The bedrooms have high quality Simmons Memory Foam king size mattresses with satin bed sheets and fluffy towels. There is a very spacious living room with a large balcony overlooking a canal, an ample entrance area and a fully equipped kitchen with its own table. The total area of this lovely apartment is 150 square meters.
On arrival you will find some delicious Italian foods and a good bottle of Prosecco in the fridge, supplied by the lovely landlords, Nicoletta and Emanuele, who are real masters of hospitality, as you can read from the many enthusiastic reviews left by guests who have stayed at this and at the other two apartments they own in the building, the Cà Pesaro Terrace on the top floor and the Cà Pesaro Suite on the ground floor.
Air-conditioning is available in every room. Amenities include Wi-Fi, a large flat-screen TV, DVD player, SKY satellite TV channels, washing machine, dishwasher, oven, coffee machine, kettle, and more.
The Cà Pesaro Piano Nobile is very quiet and comfortable, suitable for both short and long term rentals, perfect both for families and couples. If you travel with a large group you can rent the Cà Pesaro Premium which can accommodate up to 10 people, combining Cà Pesaro Piano Nobile and Cà Pesaro Suite.

My first visit to Venice! Since we arrived fairly late we sent one companion ahead to meet the owner to avoid the late arrival surcharge; but he stayed to meet us at the vaporetto stop for the two who arrived later. He was very pleasant & charming. We were a group of 3 women and the apartment was perfect for us. It is in a great location and easily accessible to everything.January 2018, Virginia (United States)
We stayed at Ca'Pesaro Nobile for 12 nights in October. Mr. Emanuele met us at San Stae Vaporetto stop to help carry our suitcases to the apartment. We were thankful to have his assistance. The apartment was just like the photos portrayed...contemporary, spacious and spotless. Mr. Emanuele spent at least an hour educating us on Venice, the politics, restaurant recommendations and other interesting tidbits of information. He welcomed us with a bottle of Prosecco and other goodies. During the week Nicoletta arrived with a clothes dryer! It was most appreciated. It should be noted that few Italian rentals have both a washer and dryer. We also enjoyed the Lavassa espresso machine each morning. All appliances worked flawlessly until we decided to turn on all of them at the same time. We blew the circuit which was quickly resolved with a phone call to Nicoletta who told us where to find the main breaker. The largest bedroom has an expansive wall unit with closets and shelves. The other two bedrooms have dressers and shelves but no hanging closet. If there is any improvement to be made it might be to add a wardrobe with hanging space to one of these rooms. Regardless, we highly recommend this unit and the gracious hospitality of its owners.October 2017, Claude (United States)
We booked a water taxi on arrival and dropped off literally at the front door! Beautiful apartment and great location!!! Nicoletta the owner met us at the unit and provided some very helpful info on the area. I would definitely book through Truly Venice again.September 2017, Larry (United States)
We spent hours and hours trying to select the 'very best' apartment rental in Venice... and I think we nailed it. From the moment we met Emanuele at check in, we knew things were going to be great. He spent a good 1/2 hour going over every possible detail with us, including recommendations for local bars and restaurants. The apartment was perfect for our 3 mid 50's couples. The apartment is very well equipped, beautifully decorated and classy in every way. The location is ideal... close enough to Rialto and St. Mark's, but far enough away from the crowds when you just want a break. The apartment is a 30 second walk to the San Stae vaporetto stop and only a minute or two to restaurants, cafes, bakeries and grocery stores. Our group has travelled throughout Europe in the past and we all agreed... this might be the nicest apartment we've booked. Thanks so much Nicoletta and Emanuele!September 2017, Mike (UK)
After a 25 minute water taxi, we were met directly outside the apartment by Emanuele (the co owner) who was very keen to help us, make sure we were feeling welcome and bestowed his top tips for places to eat, drink and how to enjoy the sights without hassle (on a map and list). Like most of Venice, the appartment has a rustic feel from the outside and leading to the first floor. Once inside the finish is excellent, contemporary but yet characterful, spotlessly clean and well appointed. Like most of the reviews already written, we would come back at the drop of a hat given the chance.....and probably will soon! Thanks Emanuele and Nicolette Kind regards Chris and familySeptember 2017, Chris (UK)
Ca Pesaro Piano Noble is in an excellent location. The Rialto bridge is only five minutes walk, as is the main market, but the apartment itself is in a quiet picturesque street with a charming balcony view. The air conditioning was essential, being a welcome escape from the scorching August temperatures. The whole apartment was well equipped, very comfortable and spacious, and the owner very helpful and informative. The apartment helped make our family's holiday in Venice a wonderful experience, we would highly recommend it!August 2017, Matthew (UK)
Wonderful clean modern apartment in a beautiful quiet building, located in a quiet part of Venice. We had a wonderful stay here...felt like locals shopping at the nearby market, yet could walk to Rialto in about 10 minutes and to San Marco in about 20 minutes. The apartment is a 1 minute walk from the San Stae vaporetto stop which was so convenient. Emanuelle met us at the boat when we arrived and couldn't have been more kind and welcoming. He provided us with lots of information about restaurants and nearby shopping. I highly recommend this apartment...we will definitely stay here on our next trip to Venice!July 2017, Pamela (Unites States)
We stayed in the Ca Pesaro Piano Nobile for four nights with myself, my fiance and both of our mothers. It was the perfect amount of space to allow everyone to spread out and have their own area. We took a prearranged water taxi from the airport (recommended) who dropped us right at our front door where Emanuele greeted us with a smile. Emanuele & Nicoletta are the perfect hosts! Both took such great care to make sure we felt welcome and to provide detailed information about the area, restaurants, shops, transportation, etc. A welcome bottle of Prosecco awaited us in the refrigerator too! Emanuele & Nicoletta also helped us to arrange a water taxi pickup on our last day when we ran into a bit of difficulty. Fabulous people. This apartment is exactly as described and pictured. It's a beautiful place and feels like a home rather than a rental. Very clean, comfortable, well appointed, nicely decorated, new appliances & fixtures, comfortable bedding, enough hot water for four people to shower in the morning, great convenient location and so much more. Couldn't have asked for better. The views of the canal from the main room balcony were so great. Relaxing just to open the doors, take in the sounds & smells of Venice from your own private canal perch. The location is within easy walking distance to Rialto and San Marco areas plus a bunch of great bakeries, meat & cheese sellers, wine sellers, restaurants and cafes nearby. Would recommend this apartment highly. Expecially to larger groups who need the space and to those who expect luxury & style. Didn't want to leave!May 2016, Tina (United States)
One can literally fall out the front door into the heart of Venice and feel like a resident. The representative met me at the vaporetto stop, a stones through away, and gave me a wonderful introduction to the local gastronomic opportunities and locations of services I might need. The apartment itself was as wonderful as it was easy for the six of us enjoy dinners together when we wanted. Very well designed, up to date and beautiful. All in All a fantastic introduction to Venice!May 2017, Duncan (US)
Fabulous, convenient location to Vaparetto stop, local grocery stores, great little restaurants, wonderful gelato parlours, and only a 10 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge. Wonderfully appointed with luxurious modern furnishings, comfortable beds, hot showers, and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen for entertaining. The terazzo flooring was extraordinary. Everything we were promised was delivered -- and there was even a bottle of Prosecco wating for us in the fridge upon our arrival -- grazie! Wonderful hosts for an equally wonderful trip. I would not hesitate to recommend to others, and we would certainly stay there again.May 2017, Christine (CANADA)
Dear Truly Venice Team, Just wanted to say a huge thank you from me for such a fantastic service we have have had from you and your team. It was so well organised from start to finish, including a return water taxi trip (a highlight in itself)! Please can you let the owners know their restaurant recommendations were fantastic and the apartment very beautiful and suited our needs perfectly. I'm really hoping to return to Venice again and will definitely be using Truly Venice again and will recommend to friends and family. Thanks again for such a super tripMarch 2017, Morwenna (UK)
For a party of 8 people needing 5 bedrooms this was perfect. We used the smaller, downstairs apartment mainly as extra bedrooms and the beautiful large sitting room overlooking the canal as our main sitting and dining area. The apartment was immaculately clean, and Emanuale, who was there to meet us on arrival, could not have been more friendly and helpful. Being literally only a few metres, with one small bridge, from one of the vaporetto stops along the grand canal made travelling around extremely easy, which was critical for us as one of the party had walking difficulties.February 2017, Pauline (UK)
We spent 5 nights staying in this fabulous apartment. Fully equipped with every kitchen appliance, extremely comfortable beds, great air con, on a canal and only 2 minutes walk from the San Stae vaparetto stop. We loved everything about the apartment and would highly recommend to anyone wanting to have that true Venetian experience !September 2016, Trish (Perth, Australia)
We have stayed in several apartments belonging to the owners of this apartment. They are all beautifully furnished in a mixture of comfortable contemporary and antique furnishings with superbly equipped kitchens and excellent modern bathrooms. The apartment on the piano nobile is a spacious and gracious apartment. The larger Terrace apartment is huge and light. It is on the top floor of this lovely old building. The building was the dependence (a specific class of building in ancient Venice!) to the Palazzo Moncenigo. Both apartments are very light but warm in the winter and air conditioned in summer. Both apartments have some outside space - the larger Terrace apartment has two terraces one of which is a sun trap and we enjoyed sitting outside in the mornings for coffee in November! There is lift for both apartments The location of the building and so the apartments is excellent for access to every part of Venice as it is seconds from the San Stae vaparetto stop. The local supermarket is about 5 minutes away and it is 8 minutes walk to the Rialto market and shops. There are excellent reasonably priced restaurants all around. There are also numerous artisan shops from picture framing to clothes as well as lots of practical shops. As there is a real local community in this area of Venice there are many community events (e.g. Live music) that visitors can enjoy too. The owners make every effort to ensure their guests have a wonderful visit and are truly knowledgeable about their home city and delight in sharing their knowledge. We are panning our next visit!November 2016, Verena (London, UK)
Nicoletta was a gracious hostess who helped us arrange delivery of delayed luggage. She met us at the canal when we arrived by water taxi from the airport. Her advice regarding shopping and restaurants was very much appreciated. The apartment was clean and easily accessible and very pleasant for six of us.June 2016, Michael (United States)
We discovered this home through the Truly Venice website. We considered several options and we were glad we chose Ca Pesaro Piano Nobile. Our hosts greeted us upon arrival and walked us through the home and offered advice from the perspective of someone that grew up in the home and neighborhood about Venice including groceries and restaurant recommendations. Every recommendation we tried was excellent. The home is exactly as represented on the website and the booking process was easy. The bonus was the water taxi from the airport, arranged through Truly Venice, that dropped us off at the front door. Rooms were comfortable and quiet, the kitchen was perfect and the living/dining room became the hub for us at cocktail hour and late in the evening.May 2016, Tully (United States)
I wanted to let you know that everything was wonderful and we had a marvelous time in Venice. I wanted to thank you and your team as well as Nicoletta & Emanuele for making this a wonderful experience. Your website and service commitment does what few other websites can deliver on. An easy booking experience where everything is as represented in both the descriptions and the images. All three couples were delighted with the home, the location and the value. Everything that Nicoletta & Emanuele offered to us in the way of insights and advice was pleasantly received and, more importantly, utilized during our week in Venice. Even the water taxi service that we booked through your website was completely enjoyable and, quite possibly, the only way that one should arrive in Venice from the airport. With this as our home, your assistance, and their advice we felt like locals for the week we were there! I have already recommended your company and their home to all of my friends and colleagues. We are already exploring a future stay in Venice of at least 1 month based on our experience on this visit.May 2016, Gerry (United States)
This was a wonderful location for us- just steps from the vaporetto at St. Stae, fairly short walk to Rialto Market, yet out of the craziness of the main tourist areas like St. Mark's Square. The apartment is very comfortable, with great beds, plumbing that works perfectly, air-conditioning and a modern well-equipped kitchen. There are some nice small restaurants within walking distance, and lots of great gelato places. The owners of this building are very lovely and kind people who go out of their way to make your visit a success. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a perfect place to experience the "real" Venice.June 2015, Tracey (United States)
This comfortable airy apartment is very close to the St Stae vaporetto stop and ideal for those who do not wish to carry their luggage very far. We were met by the charming owner who sat and shared his reliable local knowledge. The kitchen, bathrooms, TV, etc. are all modern. There is a very good bakery close by, and a surprisingly good Coop supermarket! Whilst we know Venice fairly well, we found the restaurant recommendations and general information in the apartment to be very useful. We hope you enjoy your visit as much as we did. Highly recommended!March 2016, Terry (United Kingdom)
My friends and I stayed in this apartment for 4 nights. We were met by the owners when we arrived and they spent time with us, pointing out where to shop, eat and even taught us some phrases that would come in useful during our time in Venice. They were really warm and welcoming and we appreciated the personal touch. The apartment is in a really good location, really comfortable and is finished to a high standard.March 2016, Jodie (United Kingdom)
There is not a bad thing to say about our stay here. On arrival we were met by the owners who led the water taxi to right outside the apartment door. Once inside Nicoletta & Emanuele could not have been more accommodating. The apartment is done up to an extremely high standard and very clean. Beds are all extremely comfy and big. The location of the apartment is fantastic, with a slight view of the grand canal from the front terrace. I would definitely choose to stay here again on returning to Venice and would not think twice about recommending this apartment to others.March 2016, Lulu (United Kingdom)
Thank you very much! We had a lovely time in Venice and the apartment was just fabulous! We will definitely contact you to stay here again whenever we return. It was wonderful! Thank you for everything!June 2015, Nancy and Family (United States)
