We stayed at Apartment Hydra the weekend before Easter. What a great location. It's a lot nicer staying independently in a 1-bed apartment than in a tiny hotel room and the prices are similar. You need to be prepared to go up a couple of...More
We stayed in this apartment "lyra" for 3 nights with our three children. The apartment was clean and spacious. We were met as prearranged and taken to the apartment very quickly though the lanes that make up Venice. We were given a map and directions...More

The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
