Brand new, very bright and trendy, the Canaletto apartment offers a stunning canal view and great comfort in the best spot of Castello district
San Marco Square and the Rialto Bridge can be reached in only 5 minutes walk: the location is absolutely central. This is one of our favorite areas of Venice historical center, close to the main tourist attractions but still very quiet and well serviced by local shops and restaurants as well as supermarkets. Some of the main landmarks found in the surroundings are the Church of San Giovanni e Paolo, Palazzo Grimani and Querini Stampalia, the Rialto Market and the Bridge of Sights, besides the renowned treasures of Basilica di San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale.
The lay-out of the Canaletto apartment is well designed, with a central entrance corridor connecting the bright and airy living room facing south, the large master bedroom with luxury en-suite bathroom, the twin/double bedroom also with en-suite bathroom. The beautiful kitchen is screened from the living room but is part of the same spacious open-space, where you can find also a nice wooden table and six designer chairs. Simple and rational. The caring landlord gave particular importance to functionality and aesthetic of kitchen and bahtrooms. The Canaletto really meets the expectations of the most demanding guests.
The apartment has specific features inherited by the original structure such as wooden beamed ceilings and tall French-windows opening on large balconies offering the most beautiful canal view you can dream of. During the recent restoration the landlord tastefully blended these historical elements with up-to-date furniture and appliances, in order to maximize the comfort. The equipment of the Canaletto include air conditioning in every room, Wi-Fi internet connection, wide flat-screen TV with international channels, DVD player, dishwasher, oven, microwave, kettle, 4 burners gas stoves, large fridge and freezer, etc.
Summarizing, you should choose the Canaletto apartment for the following reasons:
- the great location, very close to San Marco Square yet tucked away from the crowd;
- the stunning Canal view enjoyable from the balconies of the living and dining room;
- the absolutely peaceful environment, were anyone can relax in contemplation;
- the brightness of the rooms conferred by the many windows;
- the superior quality of furniture and fittings;
- the fresh and contemporary style interior design, created with an harmonious color palette.

The pictures do not do the quality of the apartment justice. It is in a perfect location just 7 minutes walk to St Marks square but in a quiet area with excellent shops and restaurants within a short walk. The nearby squares are off the usual tourist routes which makes them great for a drink/meal. If you arrive by private water taxi you only have a few minutes walk. It is quite a few floors up but the view is amazing and it was a real treat at the end of the day to sit on the balcony and watch and listen to the gondolas go by. I just wish we had stayed longer. Truly Venice were excellent throughout the booking and I would definitely use them again.April 2018, Jo and Richard (United Kingdom)
The apartment, though more expensive than some, is worth every penny. St Marks is walkable in 10 to 15 mins but it is located in a relatively quiet area and we arrived to the sound of gondoliers singing in the canal below. The rooms are fantastic and so are the facilities. What made our holiday was our English host who had lived in Venice for many years and pointed us to three fantastic restaurants that were all really close by and not over priced. We walked everywhere and would recommend going to the Bienalle if you ever get the chanceOctober 2017, Keith (UK)
Loved the apartment .... nice layout, bathrooms, charming view of the canal and gondoliers....but it is not for anyone who can't deal with stairs -- 72, I think. Great location between Rialto and San Marco, shopping, restaurants and museums all around.September 2017, Barbara (United States)
The apartment is in a great location and is very well maintained. The stairs are good exercise! We had everything we needed and it was exceptionally clean. We'd highly recommend this apartment and are sure that Truly Venice look after all their apartments in this way. Tom (the apartment manager) went above and beyond to assist when our luggage didn't arrive at the airport, we couldn't have asked for more all round. Thanks again Truly Venice!July 2017, Matthew (Australia)
I rented the Canaletto apartment with my husband, and it was the perfect apartment for us. Beautifully furnished, clearly lovingly designed and end result was a very chic but warm place from which to discover Venice. The apartment is on a route where gondolas like to go and it added a lot to the magic of being in Venice. The view was really important to us. The location was perfect. You are not in the crazy busy part of Venice yet it was easy to walk everywhere, even with our children. Two supermarkets nearby made this also convenient. The reception of our family from the water taxi was great. We also had an issue with electricity going off one day and it took less than half an hour when the nice man came to look into it. Great personable service. This apartment was really wonderful to come to after a day of exploring. Great value for money too. Big thanks to Truly Venice for the great service throughout, and to the owner of Canaletto for a superb job of creating such a beautiful, cosy apartment. For us it was perfect!Tarja, Dubai (UAE)
