Venini is a stunning attic in the most exclusive location of the San Marco District, with elevator and panoramic "Altana"
This is a real “home away from home”, found only one minute walk from the San Samuele Vaporetto stop (next to the renowned Palazzo Grassi) and only three minutes' walk from the Sant' Angelo Vaporetto stop. The apartment is literally behind Campo Santo Stefano and the Accademia Bridge: in the immediate surroundings there are a variety of good restaurants, bars and shops for sophisticated palates, beside the supermarket, the best boutiques and ateliers. You cannot find a better location in Venice historical centre.
Few Apartments in Venice offer such a spectacular panoramic view over the roof-tops: on the quiet so called “Altana” (typical wooden roof-top terrace) you can relax under the sun during the day or have a romantic candle light dinner at night. It is easily accessible from an easy-to-climb staircase from the huge living room. You will probably spend most of the time on that terrace!
The Venini apartment is found at the 4th floor: you can access it through the small elevator or by the stairway. The apartment is composed of a gigantic living room, a good kitchen, three bedrooms, three bathrooms. The living room is particularly prestigious: it features high wooden beamed ceilings, parquet flooring, many windows with view on “Salizada San Samuele” and access to the gallery where the owner used to work from his desk. The most interesting part is the exclusive collection of beautiful Murano Glass objects properly locked inside the glass cabinets that you can see also in the photo gallery. Precious are also the limited edition pieces from Venini (the famous Venetian Glass Artist) which gave the name to the apartment. Beside the glass object, this apartment features a collection of very interesting original paintings. There is also plenty comfortable sitting space and a good video/audio entertainment system. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped (table for 6 people, large fridge, freezer, oven, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, 4 burners' stove, etc...) and can be separated from the living room closing the sliding doors.
A long corridor connects the living area with the three bedrooms: the master bedroom and the second bedroom are furnished with a king size bed, wardrobe and have en-suite bathroom with shower; the third bedroom, that can be used with 2 single beds or as double on request, have access to the third bathroom with bathtub. The bedrooms aren’t very spacious as the rest of the house but are big enough for two people for a holiday.
The amenities of the Venini apartment include air-conditioning system in every room, independent heating system, Wi-Fi internet connection, entertainment system, modern appliances. It accommodates comfortably six discerning guests and it is suitable for all travellers with the only exception of children below 5 years old: special care has to be taken to avoid damages to the glasses.

We were met by someone at the water bus stop and shown to the apartment. They were really helpful and gave us some information about Venice. The apartments itself was amazing. We had 6 people staying there and it was still really spacious. Kitchen was large enough and well equipped to cook in. The terrace was a nice addition. It was a bit chilly to sit out there but the view was great. The location was perfect. It was nice to stay in a quieter area but still within 10 mins walk of St Marks square. The best supermarket we found was by the rialto Bridge. Burano is worth taking a trip to - the colourful houses make a great Instagram post. Murano is one of those places you feel you should go to but you don’t need that long there!March 2018, Debbie (UK)
Apartment Venini could not be in a better location! We chose to walk everywhere, but the water taxi stop on the Grand Canal was only 30 metres away, and the local grocery store was at 20 metres from the apartment (handy, but like the rest of Venice, expensive). Note there is no canal view. The only drawback was the strict requirement to use a very small lift to access the apartment, as the stairs can be used only in case of emergency (if you are in the least claustrophobic you will not enjoy this). Apart from that the apartment is fabulous.We did not make use of the roof terrace as it was too cold, but it would be a huge bonus in the summer months.We were met by Enrico who was helpful and gave good advice. No problem in delaying checkout to suit our flight. We would stay there again without hesitation.February 2018, Martin (UK)
6 of us (3 couples) stayed at the Venini Apartment for 3 night during August 2017 following a cruise which ended in Venice. Truly Venice was extremely accommodating and allowed us to check-in early and check-out late since the apartment wasn't booked on the those days. Thomas came to meet us at San Samuele water bus stop and took us to the apartment which is only a minute's walk away. He gave us the tour of the apartment and also provided us with a map already marked with local shops etc and advised us on local reasonably priced restaurants and answered all the questions we had. The map came in very handy as the GPS signal on the phone was very erratic in some parts of Venice. The apartment is in a very quiet part of Venice and very spacious, extremely clean and had every thing that one could want including air conditioning (the temp outside was mid-30c everyday). The kitchen was extremely well equipped and we chose to eat in 2 out of the 3 nights using groceries purchased at a local supermarket which was 5 to 10 minutes walk away. All key sights are within 10 to 15 minutes walking distance from the apartment and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Venini with Truly Venice. I would definitely recommend Truly Venice and if I am ever in Venice again I would book with them without hesitation.August 2017, David (UK)
A stunning, spacious apartment furnished in good taste with comfort in mind. Amazing art work on walls - the sort I'd love on my own walls. The glass collection is beautiful, a great taster for visiting the museum on st Giorgio if you go. A well-equipped kitchen in which we enjoyed leisurely breakfasts, but could easily cook an evening meal. And the roof terrace views! You could sit there and look at them all day. The area is central, close to transport, and the local bars and restaurants are extremely good, feature in top guides etc., so if you choose, you don't even need to go further than Calle Botteghe for ciccetti, dinner, ice-cream. Lovely Deli and wine-shop on C/Botteghe, supermarket at 5-10 ins walk. Campo San Stefano a perfect place to sit with coffee and watch the locals and tourists go by. Tom met the first guests and was extremely helpful and harming. He also responded immediately to any requests and questions. A perfect location for a group or family of 6 adults.April 2017, Kate (UK)
Dear Trulyvenice team, after a really kind and heartful welcome from Thomas at the waterbus station he guided us to the Appartment. It has a lovely view on it´s terrace and everything you need inside. The kitchen is full of equipment, 3 bedrooms plus a bathroom for each one and the big living room. There is everything you need around, tiny bars and supermarket, restaurants and sightseeing places of course. We really enjoyed our trip and stay! We felt very well and welcomed. All of us would love to come back there. Thank you!February 2016, Grölz (Germany)
