Foscolo is a hidden gem located between the Guggenheim Collection and the Zattere waterfront in the most desired part of the Dorsoduro District
It is reachable in only 3 minutes' walk from the Accademia Vaporetto stop and 3 minutes' walk from the monumental Basilica della Salute. In the surroundings you can find Punta della Dogana and François Pinault Foundation, the Accademia Galleries and other world famous landmarks. Many Venice connoisseurs and influent artists bought their house here as it is a picturesque, quiet and central area of Venice.
The Foscolo apartment is a very quiet first floor apartment of a small house facing east on the gardens of a historic palace and west on private courtyards, thus very bright. The apartment is accessible from a non-touristy street and has a useful storage room at the ground floor where you can keep possible bulky items you may have. It is composed of a small entrance, a generous size living room equipped with a comfortable double pull-out sofa bed and a table for four people, a compact but very functional kitchen, a cozy bedroom and a nice bathroom with shower. The bedrooms is separated by the living room by a sliding wooden grid that doesn't isolate completely acoustically or visually the two areas, but gives a nice warm feeling to the ambience.
The smart lay-out of the Foscolo apartment, newly renovated in a contemporary style, has been studied to guarantee maximum comfort to the most demanding guests, despite the compact size of the flat. The amenities of this house include air conditioning, Wi-Fi internet connection, flat screen TV with DVD player, washing machine, dishwasher and all other basic electrical appliances.
The house is perfect for a couple, but for short stays it is also suitable for up to 4 people. In summary the Foscolo apartment is a fresh and easy living sort of apartment with a welcoming atmosphere. We suggest it to romantic couples or singles, also for longer stays.

This lovely, well appointed, clean apartment is in a very quiet calle opposite the Peggy Guggenheim museum in the Dorsoduro area. It looks out into a private garden and although one bedroom it still feels spacious. It has air conditioning. The kitchenette is small and I did bump my head on the cupboard doors but we managed to cook for ourselves as everything you need is there. It has a nice bathroom. The shower is small but everything is modern and clean. The Truly Venice team is very helpful, always there if you need them. We were met at the vaporetto and taken to the apartment and shown around. It is a perfect place to stay if you want to visit all the sights but at the end of the day escape from the crowds.May 2018, Phillipa (Australia)
A perfect apartment for two, steps away from The Peggy Guggenheim Collection. We were met at the Accademia vaporretto by the representative of Truly Venice, who took us to the apartment, explained the procedures and offered excellent suggestions for local dining. We walked everywhere and pretty much covered the town. The kitchen was equipped with coffee, tea, milk, and some treats. We found it to be very clean.February 2018, Jane (United States)
This was the second time we booked Foscolo. This is the way to stay in Venice. Someone meets you at a designated vaporetto stop, guides you to your space, explains all the ins and outs. Truly Venice is a reputable company. Things are exactly as seen. Our apartment was modern, immaculate and comfortable. Set right behind the Peggy Guggenheim Museo. There were no surprises.October 2017, John (United States)
Great location very close to the Grand Canal. Easy access to transport and everything is walkable. Meet and Greet service with Thomas was great. After 10 Minutes with him we were ready to go with all the info we needed. A neat and airy apartment just right for a few days touring.October 2017, Kimbery (UK)
Everything about our stay at Foscolo was convenient and comfortable. From Hannah's greeting and helpful suggestions, through the thoughtful flat design and features, to our departure arrangements -- our stay was made very easy. We will return!October 2017, Chris (Canada)
Everything was great! Truly Venice representatives were fabulous reps. They managed everything. When Lufthansa lost our luggage, Truly Venice organised with Venice Airport to have them delivered. Baggage delivered first thing the next morning. The Foscolo apartment was in a very quiet street yet within walking distance to everything. All facilities in the apartment were great. Will be referring and recommending Truly Venice to family and friends.August 2017, Catherine (Australia)
Thank you for a truly wonderful stay in Venice. The apartment was spotless, cozy and perfectly located. It was truly a delight! I will definitely reach out the next time I'm in Venice.November 2017, Cristina (USA)
We just wanted to drop a note of thanks, especially to Hannah, for making our stay in Venice so enjoyable. We truly appreciate the care and consideration. warm regards,August 2017, Joy (Canada)
I did plenty of trawling around to find the right place in the right place for our 5-night first ever trip to Venice and couldn't have chosen better. Truly Venice gave a first class efficient and proficient service and the Foscolo apartment ticked all our boxes in the most wonderful Dorsodouro area of this amazing city. They organised our private water taxi to and from the airport and were there to greet us upon our arrival with plenty of local but very helpful info which added to our stay. The apartment was pristine, beautifully laid out and furnished / supplied with essential comforts and a clever use of space with all mod cons within an old building in a very peaceful yet fantastic location. The air con was a must and we felt it was exactly right for the two of us though we'd have not been as comfortable with other bodies! We will definitely return and definitely use Truly Venice again. Grazie mille!June 2017, Karen (Leeds, UK)
It all worked great! The day of the arrival a water taxi has been booked trough Truly Venice, and a representative met us at the water taxi drop off point. During the stay we felt more than comfortable in this wonderful apartment! (Translated from German)April 2017, Rita (Germany)
The Foscolo is a great apartment in a fantastic location. Modern, clean and bright, I would highly recommend it! Hope to return ...May 2017, Susan (UK)
The Foscolo apartment is a lovely apartment, perfect for 2 persons and in a great location. Bright, and sunny, clean and comfortable, the Foscolo is equipped with a good shower and a small but funtional kitchen. In the district and in the area around the apartment we found a lot of good places to eat nearby.March 2017, Linda (London, UK)
Foscolo is a simply delightful and stylish apartment. The location is excellent - steps from the Guggenheim and in a charming & peaceful part of Dorsoduro but also incredibly convenient for the vaporetto. It is a very well equipped property, clean and well maintained. A return visit for late May already booked! We have stayed in various Truly Venice apartments and find the company extremely efficient and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble!January 2017, Judith (London, UK)
A wonderful and quiet place in the heart of Venice. We stayed in Foscolo for 4 days and nights in January 2017. It is a beautifully appointed and light apartment, with great views over gardens on the opposite side of the calle. It is situated in a very peaceful area of Dursodoro, but near the Guggenheim and the Academia bridge. As such it is close to restaurants, but the kitchen still provides all amenities for cooking. It was a great place to stay, as a couple, and well worth exploring.January 2017, Neil (London, UK)
