You want to get to know the true spirit of Venice? Go for an area a little out of the way possibly where a lot of Venetians reside (like Ca’delle Ciocche, Corte dei Santi, or Ca’Giovanna.) If you want to stay near the center with spectacular views and spaces? And prefer an apartment on the last floor of a beautiful Venetian Palace then go for something like Ca’ della Scimmia or Ca’Lodovica. Note: if you are in need of a structure with easy access to public transportation make sure you are close to a waterbus stop and that the apartment is ground floor or has an elevator.
3 – Restoration and Details

Not all apartments result perfect or meet home standards or guarantee the necessities we are used to in living comfortably. Make sure there is an ample amount of pictures to check as well as photos representing all parts of the house and that included is a list of everything you will find in the place you plan to stay.
4 – Internet Site
