The flat is located right in the historical centre of Venice, in the famous Saint Mark's district, a short distance from Saint Mark's Square.
This district is the original heart of the city. The Square was the seat of the city's political and judiciary heart of the Republic of Venice for almost a thousand years.
This location lets you take in the splendid Palazzo Ducale (the seat of Venice's political power since the 9th century), the suggestive Saint Mark's Basilica (the Doge's private chapel until 1807) and the picturesque Watch Tower with it statues of Venetian moors striking the hours on the huge bell at its top... a most singular of views that captures the magic of this age-old city.
The arch beneath the Tower links the Piazza with the Mercerie, that is, the city's high-street since the Republic's birth. Today it is lined with scores of luxury brand stores.
A short walk takes you to the Paglia bridge, behind Ducale Palace, and the famous Bridge of Sighs beyond which lies the Castello district.
Other points of historical and cultural interest are undoubtedly the magnificent La Fenice theater (Venice's main lyrical venue – destroyed and resurrected several times, not to mention Saint Moses' church, and Palazzo Grassi (which has lately been converted into a prestigious gallery).
If shopping is your thing, the apartment sits right next to Calle XXIV Marzo, better known as the high-street, where all the designer stores and boutiques are located.
