Appartamento Rachele is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment, perfect for a family or small group of friends: one bedroom has a queen bed, and there's a queen-sized sofabed in the entrance/living room area with kitchenette ( take note: whoever sleeps on the sofa bed will not get a lot of privacy, as the bed is located in the second room of the apartment which is entrance/living room/kitchen all in one!)
The apartment has been completely restructured in elegant and typically Venetian style.
It's owned by the same family as Ca' Riccio B&B (also on our website, and just around the corner). The owners and staff of the B&B are super nice and helpful, so there is always someone on hand in case you need assistance (at the B&B reception).
It's located in a very convenient area: close to where the vaporettos leave for the different islands of Venice (Murano islands, Lido, etc) and for the Marco Polo airport, the train station, Piazzale Roma (where there is a car park and buses that leave Venice), and other parts of the city. It's just a short walk from the neighborhood Fondamenta Nuove, where you can find all sorts of pizzerias, restaurants, and wine bars, and take a nice walk along the lagunas. In just a 5-minute walk you can be at the famous Rialto bridge and its outdoor market, and in 10 minutes at beautiful Piazza San Marco. The area is still full of local artisans, so you'll see old-fashioned typography, woodworking, blacksmith, marble cutting, glass working, antique, and leather working studios and workshops. It's a close walk from Campo San Bartolomeo and the Mercerie area with big brand-name stores. It's also near the churches San Giovanni e Paolo, Chiesa dei Miracoli (which was constructed with the remaining marble from San Marco's Basilica) where many couples celebrate their weddings, Chiesa dei Gesuiti, and Chiesa dei SS Apostoli.
