The Petrarca is an historic brilliantly restored first floor Venetian style apartment conveniently located in the authentic Castello District
It is found about 10 minutes on foot from St. Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge, only 3 minutes on foot from the public transport stop, with various groceries and supermarkets in the surroundings. Castello is less touristy and more authentic than other districts, since the last few years always more requested by art collectors, artists, gallerists and architects because of its proximity to the Biennale main exhibition sites.
The Petrarca features a perfectly equipped kitchen with a large dining table, two nice bathrooms (with bathtub and shower), a large double bedroom with plenty of wardrobe space, a good size second bedroom with 2 single beds, a compact living room (TV room) with a brand new double sofa-bed and a spacious entrance room found in the centre of the apartment which give access to all other rooms. The recent conservative renovation optimized the layout, allowing total comfort for up to 6 people, while respecting the ancient heritage.
The Petrarca is furnished with a pleasant blend of family owned antique pieces and contemporary details, which jointly to the beautiful flooring and ceilings confer a unique allure to the ambience. It is equipped with air conditioning, Wi-Fi internet connection, satellite TV, DVD-Player, audio system with I-Phone/Pod station, washing machine, dishwasher, hairdryer, safe, storage room on ground floor. It is suitable to everyone, small groups of friends and families!

Appartamento situato in zona tranquilla, molto pulito e attrezzato di tutto, funzionale e confortevole. Molto disponibile il personale di Truly Venice.Dicembre 2017, Errico (Italy)
Petrarca is a delightful Venice home. It is well positioned for the Alilaguna and Vaporetto services and it is easy to reach any place of interest, while being tucked away in a quiet residential district, with excellent greengrocer, grocer, bakery, butchers and a supermarket nearby. The flat is spacious, bright, elegantly and distinctively furnished, has very nice bathrooms, and a very fully equipped kitchen. I stayed for a month and would be happy to stay longer. And I hope to another time! The Truly Venice team were very helpful, from check-/out to handling any practical issues that came up. I strongly recommend.October 2017, Martin (UK)
Beautiful apartment on a quiet street in Venice. The apartment was beautiful, and very comfortable for a longer stay. The location was on a quiet street. For those attending the Venice Bienale, it was in perfect proximity to the Arsenale and the Giardini, while still close to great restaurants. The hosts were very helpful in getting us oriented and helping us find great local restaurants. We loved our stay.July 2017, Steven (Canada)
We booked this apartment as we were travelling as a family but also wanted a space to entertain in. We were met by Enrico from the water bus that brought us from the airport. He was very helpful and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment and provided a map and some local recommendations for coffee and dining. Off the tourist track this pleasant two bedroom apartment was perfectly equipped and had been recently refurbished to a high standard with new bathrooms and kitchen. We found it very comfortable and tastefully furnished. It was in a residential area so although quiet at night, the air could at times be filled with the voices of locals during the day but this added to the Venetian atmosphere!November 2014, Mitchen (United Kingdom)
