Ca' Pesaro Terrace apartment offers the luxury of a spacious 4th floor with elevator and large outdoor space with a panoramic view of Venice
This is a newly renovated penthouse apartment laid out on about 180 square meters in a historic palazzo and located next to the San Stae vaporetto (water bus) stop in the Santa Croce District just steps from the Canal Grande.
Venetian residents love this area as it has remained authentic and quiet and not too touristy, It is close to ground and water public transportation and to the city center. In the neighborhood you can find excellent inexpensive traditional restaurants and bars as well as interesting artisan shops, away from the crowd.
The apartment is incredibly bright and has two terraces with panoramic views over Venice, as well as a stunning altana, the Venetian wooden roof-top terrace with a bit of a view of the Canal Grande. There are three bedrooms (one double, one room that can be set up as a double or with twins, and one twin bedroom), two bathrooms, a spacious living room and a fully equipped kitchen. A highlight of the apartment is the veranda – dining room accessible from the living room and kitchen. In warm weather the dining room can be experienced al fresco, and in cooler weather the glass doors can be pulled across.
The stylish large bedroom has its own sunny terrace with nice outdoor furniture and a view all the way to the Campanile (bell tower) in Piazza San Marco. While the master bedroom is air-conditioned the other two bedrooms share an air-conditioning unit located in the connecting corridor that works well when both bedroom doors are left open. There is also an air-conditioning unit in the living room. The Cà Pesaro Terrace is equipped with Wi-Fi, flat-screen TV, DVD player, SKY satellite TV channels, washing machine, dishwasher and more.
On your arrival you will find some delicious Italian foods supplied by the lovely landlords who are real masters of hospitality.
The Cà Pesaro Terrace is very quiet and comfortable in a stunning setting, and is suitable for both short and long term rentals. It is loved by everyone who has stayed there.

We loved our stay at Ca Pesaro. The owner was very welcoming and knowledgable about the local area. The apartment was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The kitchen is small but was all we needed. The two bathrooms were compact but well equipped and stylish. There is an upstairs verandah, suitable for those with a head for heights. I found the balcony a more relaxing place to sit. The flat is in a quiet spot not too far from the Rialto Bridge. I wish we had been able to stay a couple of nights longer.July 2017, Pat (UK)
We stayed our last week in Italy in this incredible apartment. The description says it is about 1600 square feet, but I think it must be larger. 3 bedrooms, 2 bath. 3 fantastic terraces. The rooftop terrace with a 360 degree view, from the Campanile and St. Mark's Basilica in the distance, to the Grand Canal, to the many church spires--no words. We had some friends over for wine at sunset--they were part of a tour group, staying 2 days in Venice in a small hotel room. They could not believe the space and kept asking how we found this. And, as amazing as the apartment was, that is not even the most important part--the owners Nicoletta and Emanuele treat you as family. They met us at the San Stae vaporetto and then spent over an hour with us, showing us the flat and going over their recommendations for restaurants to make our stay fantastic. They have prepared maps and booklets of recommendations. They clearly love their building and we felt honored that they let us stay here. When we trekked in to busier sections--Rialto Bridge and Piazza San Marcos--we always felt glad to come home to this quiet apartment. It is right by the San Stae vaporetto stop so it is easy to get to places. We bought a 7 day pass and just jumped on and off. There are great restaurants right in the area--listen to Emanuele and Nicoletta. I loved walking the streets, crossing bridges and canals, going out in the morning for espresso and croissants. This is a special place. Thank you Nicoletta and Emanuele. Perhaps we will be able to return someday.July 2017, Blake (WA/USA)
Surprisingly spacious, exceptionally clean, friendly and helpful owners. Out of the crazy tourist path, yet just a stone's throw from a vaporetto stop. The outdoor terraces (3!!) were a treat and we used them all! 3 good-sized bedrooms, 2 full baths, large living areas (take care to the attention to detail by the owners). Wish we were back having a spritz on the roof! Won't stay anywhere else!! Ciao Ciao!May 2017, Chris (Dallas, USA)
We are a family of six. When we arrived we reeived a warm welcome from owners. The apartment was settled as requested with a double and two twins. Everything was in a very good order, with new bathrooms. The apartment is at the fourth floor (with lift), and the area is out of main drag and with good selection of places to eat nearby, bakery on doorstep, and a large coop just a five minute walk. Rialto Bridge / Market is ten minute walk and St Mark's twenty. We didn't use the roof top terrace much (just for occasional drinks) as the main living area with terrace is so pleasant and right next to the kitchen.April 2017, Simon (UK)
This past May my family of five spent four days in Venice staying at Ca Pesaro Terrace. We could not have found a more ideal apartment or location - easy walking distance to everything on the main island, but on a canal in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Upon our arrival by water taxi right to the front door of the apartment we were greeted by the wonderful owners, Nicoletta and Emanuele, who took the time to show us around the apartment and familiarize us with the neighborhood, including suggestions for excellent local restaurants and directions to the local grocery store. In addition to a welcoming bottle of Prosecco, they provided a useful notebook full of details about restaurants, museums and sites to see in Venice. The 4th floor penthouse apartment with elevator is spacious, comfortable, nicely furnished and - to the delight of my three adult children - it has excellent WiFi service. Best of all, the apartment has two terraces - one off the dining room with a view of a beautiful garden below, one off the master bedroom facing San Marco - and the most wonderful roof top altana, from which you have a panoramic view of the roof tops of Venice as well as a bit of the Grand Canal. After our long days exploring Venice, we spent every evening before dinner on the roof top terrace enjoying wine and cheese and the truly spectacular view. We all have such fond memories of Venice and our stay at Ca Pesaro Terrace, and we very much hope to return there on our next trip to Venice.May 2016, Peter (NSW, Australia)
Loved this property. The home was very spacious and clean. Everything we needed was there form laundry soap to bath soap. The lovely owners - Nicoletta and Manuel, even supplied coffee and a bottle of proseco upon our arrival. They have put a lot of effort into the comfort of their guests from the air conditioning in each bedroom to the best pillows and most comfortable mattresses. They also took the time to sit with us to give use tips on where to eat and shop - and they made dinner reservations for us. Also, when I realized that I had left our passports at the house, Nicoletta overnighted them to me! The roof top views are amazing as well. Location is just steps away from a great pizzaria and the vapparotto stop. I would highly recommend this place for your stay in Venice!July 2016, Renee (United States)
My wife and I stayed one week in June at Ca Pesaro Apartment and thought it was marvelous. The apartment itself was tastefully furnished in a way that blended old and modern. At the same time, it looked smart & elegant while establishing a comfortable and relaxing living space.(We've noticed quite a few apartments on the web that look over-elaborate over-decorative. Ca Pesaro felt homely) One of the best things about our choice was its position. The nearest waterbus/vaporatto,( at San Stae) was about 50 meters from the front door. And when we got a water taxi from the airport it was able to deliver us right up to the door step. (By the way- the hosts Nicoletta & Emanualle met us at the doorway and were very friendly and welcoming. They were also easy to deal with) Ca Pesaro is very central. You can walk almost anywhere on the main island in about twenty minutes. Rialto or San Marco takes about 10 minutes, yet the area around the apartment is quiet and peaceful. There was a useful shopping trolley in the apartment and we were able to get all our provisions within easy walking distance. We would say that the apartment description is fair and accurate and really we really enjoyed our stay.July 2016, Tighabhinn (United Kingdom)
Lovely apartment, easily big enough for our 5 adult party. Situated extremely close to San Stae church and waterbus stop, good restaurants nearby, and co-op shop 5 mins away for milk etc. Rialto market and bridge is an easy stroll, and St Mark's not much further - you can see the Basilica's towers from the apartment's rooftop terrace, and you could pretty much chuck a stick in the Grand Canal from up there too, if you were so minded. Hosts are passionate about eating well in Venice, have loads of tips, and were fast to reply to our questions.April 2016, Kate (United Kingdom)
This apartment is PERFECT!! The apartment is well presented & very clean. The owners go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect, they have all the information you need to find your way around Venice, where to buy the cheeses, meats, tips on how to make pasta, which restaurants to go too, everything you need to know for your stay. They are very friendly and know how to make you feel so welcome. We would highly recommend this apartment, we were a family of 7, there was enough room for us all to enjoy our 4 day stay in Venice. Next time we visit Venice we will definitely be staying at this apartment again.October 2014, Jamie (Australia)
We stayed in Ca Pesaro in September for 4 days, I could have stayed a lifetime... There were 6 of us ladies travelling from Ireland in celebration of my sister's birthday. The lift arrived right into the apartment and first impression was excellent. The living room and dining room were spacious and very elegantly decorated. A big advantage is that the bedrooms (2 twins 1 very comfy king) are separated by the hallway from the living area so everyone found their own quiet space if needed. I have to say that the balconies were my favourite, beautiful views over the Venice rooftops and down to the canals below, just amazing, a wonderful experience. The location is perfect, just off the beaten tourist track but still close to everything. It even seemed to have its own homely atmosphere from the minute we walked in! Thank you so much for a very very memorable stay in Venice. From a Truly Irish fan...!October 2014, Carol (Ireland)
This was our second stay at Ca Pesaro Terrace, we loved it so much the first time we came back! Nicolette and Emanuele are the perfect hosts, always available for any questions and they truly make you feel at home. The apartment is immaculate and perfectly equipped for your home away from home in Venice. Location is one reason we came back to this charming apartment but also the apartment itself makes for a peaceful retreat after exploring the narrow pathways of Venice. The apartment is quiet, light and airy with two private outdoor terraces. Perfect for sipping your prosecco and enjoying your prosciutto while planning your next day's adventure. The view from the Altana is outstanding, particularly at sunset. You will feel so special up here while having a spritz, listening to the bells and admiring the Grand Canal. This is a perfect place to stay. We can't wait to come back again!June 2015, CJ (United States)
Recently my family and I visited Venice and stayed at Ca Pesaro. What a wonderful time we had. And what contributed a great deal to that wonderful time was our residence. It was comfortable, well appointed and in a great location. It was obvious that the owner took a great deal of pride in her offering as the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms and the other amenities were first class and the views from each of the patios/decks were spectacular. The appliances were all up to date, the air conditioners worked wonderfully. Our hostess was cordial, friendly and most helpful. It was a place and a location that I would readily recommend to anyone who wants a memorable experience in Venice.July 2015, Daine R (United States)
The apt is splendid, done in simple but elegant taste, very clean, with a variety of beautiful carpets on the terrazzo floors that made it a home away from home. The apt has a stunning dining area where we ate some communal evening meals and the kitchen is modern. The uppermost terrace provides distant views of I Friari, St Marks and other familiar landmarks and will be ideal for relaxing in spring and summer. Care has been lavished on the apt by their Venetian owners Emanuel and Nicoletta who provide their guests with reams of info on the great eating places in the neighborhood and are always ready to help being only a phone call away if an urgent need arises. Daily morning garbage round up in the Venetian streets is a model for many a city. Very quiet at night since the area is not on a major Venetian tourist artery even though the Grand Canal is right there a few feet away. The best compliment the apt received is that friends from Florence who were invited and had said that they would come for a casual day or two, after seeing the apt stayed the whole week !!October 2015, MJS (United States)
My wife and I were traveling with our two boys (ages 9 and 11) and my wife's parents (early 70s). The owner met us at the canal and actually had the taxi pull right up to our doorstep! We were grateful to have a beautiful and functional lift to carry us up to our condo each day. Let me say that the pictures of the unit are spot on -- it's beautiful! And the owner was so friendly. Without solicitation, he insisted on sitting down with us after a tour of the unit to give us a locals lay of the land. It's obvious that he takes great pride in the city and gave us a great selection of restaurants and bars to choose from to include what sort of foods to expect and how much we'd pay. I say the terraces and roofdeck are what set it apart. We all went up to the roof deck for sunset on two consecutive evenings to enjoy the sunset. Another thing I like about the unit is that it's an easy walk to the Rialto Bridge and San Marco square, but you can just as easily walk the other way and see a much more quiet and beautiful less traveled portion of the city. There are a few bakeries and restaurants about 150 meters walk so you can eat close to the unit, but away from the higher prices of the more traveled areas. I can't say enough good things about the hospitality, location, and beauty of our stay at Ca Pesaro Terrace. It's worth every penny!!!November 2015, Ian (United States)
We found Truly Venice exemplary in their service - quick and efficient in responding to enquiries, and invariably friendly and helpful. We were particularly grateful for their assistance at the end of our holiday, when calls to water taxi companies for the run to the airport met with 'sorry. fully booked' responses. Within half an hour, Truly Venice sorted this out and we had a straightforward first leg for our return journey. The apartment is spacious and well equipped, as advertised. Best of all is the roof terrace, from which one can see across the rooftops of the city (plus a sliver of the Grand Canal, which lies about twenty metres from the apartment). Access is via the (very quiet) lift - essential if you have heavy bags or tired children to deal with, although there are stairs for those who wish to stay in shape. The kitchen is big enough for two people to work in simultaneously and all necessities (pots and pans, cutlery etc.) were provided. In short, the apartment offers quick access to pretty much anywhere one might want to visit in Venice, but without the noise and expense associated with an even more central location. Last, a word about the owners of the apartment, whose personal attention to their visitors' comfort and satisfaction deserves the highest praise. In addition to welcoming us on arrival, and ensuring that the water taxi pulled up quite literally outside our front door, they spent at least half an hour telling us useful things about places to visit, making terrific suggestions about local restaurants, and answering our questions. The fine bottle of Prosecco left in the fridge for us was also a very nice touch.April 2016, Ted (United Kingdom)
This was a fantastic apartment on the top floor with views and balconies on three sides: well-stocked, clean, modern inside, nice breeze, sunny, etc. It is near a Water Taxi Stop, the Natural History Museum, small local shops, and about a 29 minute walk to St. Mark's Square. In a word, it was "perfect" for the six of us. It was a 30 second walk to the end of a pier where we were delivered by a private water taxi from the train station and picked up to go to the Venice airport real early in the morning. We would definitely stay here again, if available!December 2013, R.P. (United States)
A beautiful apartment with a lot of space in a very nice “Venezia". The apartment is incredible, a lot of space, three bedrooms, two badrooms, three balconies. Decorated in an elegant and beautiful way, that makes you feel at home immediately. The fact that it has an elevator that stops in your apartment, makes it very special for Venice! The vaporetto stop San Stae of linea 1 is very closely and in the area there are a lot of nice special shops and restaurants, that serve very good food. The art museum Cà Pesaro is just around the corner. We loved the apartment and would definitely recommend it!January 2014, Henk (Netherland)
We have been many times in Venice, in 5 stars hotels, but staying in Ca' Pesaro was so relaxing and pampering in particular after the hustle and bustle of the city! It is really what you need. We so much enjoyed the tranquility of the veranda, having our morning breakfast in it and our lunches on the splendid 360' degrees view on a large and proper Venice altana. It is all very clean and new with all kind of facilities, high speed Wifi connection with its own lift taking you directly at home- rare for Venice!! amazing location at 1 minutes from San Stae Vaporetto and Ca Pesaro. I do recommend it especially for long-term stay. Not to mention Nicoletta and Emanuele, the most charming couple of Venice. We certainly will come back.March 2014, Erminia (United Arab Emirates)
Thank you so much for a fantastic stay. We had a great time. Beautiful city, beautiful apartment. Thanks again.May 2014, Sean & Helen (United Kingdom)
We all had such a wonderful time in Venice. It was the highlight of our trip. Venice is so beautiful. We followed many of your suggestions and had beautiful lunches and dinners. It was all fantastic. Venice is so overwhelming in history. I could stay a year and find so much to do. It is a truly amazing city. It is very inspiring. You have such a beautiful apartment. Lovely design space and setting. Thank you for having us to stay. It was also a treat seeing you as we left Venice. Thank you so much for everything. With very best wishes.May 2014, Helen, Jack and Grace (New Zealand)
