Other apartments in Venice managed by Rosa are the properties n° 816251 and 1030531
My name is Rosa, I was born and I live in Venice, a city that I love in every little detail, from the history to the art, the architecture and the way of living.
I manage with pleasure 3 apartments in the historic center of the city, adding this activity to my business managing a small perfumery near Piazza San Marco.
I speak and write fluently in English and French.
I love to travel and to find cozy places that make me feel at ease wherever I am.
Rosa purchased this apartment in 2010
These apartments belong to my family. I decided to dedicate them to this activity because I love having contact with people from all over the world; opportunity that the international vocation of Venice allows me to accomplish.
I started this business with the main aim of making my guests's stay in the city as pleasant and comfortable as possible, so to return to their homes not only retaining the memory of the places visited, but also the feeling of having found their own 'home' in Venice.
My effort is, through custom maps and advice, to make discover Venice, not only as a tourist destination but as a city to love in its most secret shades; what I try to do, through my reading of the history of the city and my wandering in the constant research for hidden corners, is to transfer my passion to my guests, in the hope that it becomes a bit theirs too.
Arranging the apartments, I always try to interpret the needs of my guests, what they may need exactly as if I were the one who should stay.
The arrangements went absolutely to plan. As agreed Rosa met us off the San Stae pier direct from the airport, took us to the apartment and explained everything we needed to know, including lots of local knowledge on places to visit, restaurants, shops etc..With written explanations, maps and so on provided.
The apartment is comfortable, spotlessly clean and a lovely combination of traditional and modern design, and equipped with everything needed for a short stay. We really enjoyed our time there, though spent much of each day exploring Venice. It is noted the apartment is on the second floor , so a bit of a climb coming and going.
The apartment is in a quiet area just over 5 minutes from the Grand Canal and the Rialto area. It is a delight to explore - there is so much to see and everything so near by. But a good detailed map is essential for navigating some of the tiny alleyways. The whole area is littered with cafes and restaurants, so plenty of choice.
The city is an absolute wonder. We saw many galleries and museums, and learned a lot about the history of Venice, and Italy. We also took a multi-day pass for the water taxis. Well worth it as it got us out to the northern islands and up and down the Grand Canal. For us the 'must-sees' include
The Guggenheim, The Doges Palace, the Correr Museum and St Mark's Basilica, plus all the squares and sights from the canal bridges etc..
ABOUT THE LOCATION
If you like the idea of living Venice as a local, these cosy and comfortable apartments will be the right choice. They are situated in the very heart of Venice and located in a quiet 'calle', just a short walk from the Rialto Bridge and its vivacious marketplace and ten minutes far from St Mark's. They offer an excellent base for walking and losing yourself in the maze of narrow 'calli', courtyards and 'campi', discovering many secrets of this town, carrying with you, if you like, our own suggestions and advice.
A few steps from the apartments you can visit Ca' Pesaro (International Gallery of Modern Art), Mocenigo Palace (Center of Studies on the History of Textiles and Costumes), and the Museum of Natural History. For your leisure it will be impossible to miss the plenty of artisanal shops and for your pleasure the wide choice of restaurants, 'bacari', pizzerie, wineshops, bakeries, groceries and supermarkets.
You will find everything you need to spend a wonderful holiday in our town.
Other Activities: strolling without a goal, losing between calli and campielli
