“Quiet apartment in nice location”

If you are looking for a nice place to stay away from the tourist crowds, then Palazzo Foscarini is a good choice. It is in the Dorsoduro section around the corner from Campo Santa Margherita, an interesting plaza with many cafes and shops. Santa Margherita also has a little supermarket so you can buy whatever you need for your stay.

To enter the apartment requires 3 different keys. The first key opens the door to the garden courtyard from the street. The second key opens the door to the building and the third key opens the door to the apartment itself.

The apartment itself has a roomy living area with a large fireplace (non-working) and double doors that open out to a small porch with a table and two chairs. The kitchen is extremely small but adequate for cooking. We always had breakfast in the apartment and cooked dinner there twice during our 5 night stay.

One tip about getting to the apartment upon arrival to Venice. We took the bus shuttle from the airport to Piazzale Roma, the last stop for vehicles in old Venice. The instructions we were sent said it is a 5 minute walk from there to the apartment so we walked it with our suitcases. Unfortunately, there are several bridges with many steps that have to be crossed and it is a tough walk with suitcases. On the way back to the airport we took a vaporetto from near the apartment to Piazzale Roma. This was much easier with suitcases. It is not easy finding the vaporetto stop near Piazzale Roma, but it will be much easier to get to the apartment this way.

Overall, we had a great stay at Palazzo Foscarini and would recommend it to anyone that wants to experience Venice like a local.

“Beautiful apartment in a fabulous location”
Reviewed 25 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We had stayed in Venice before, always in hotels, and decided that we wanted to be away from the main centres of tourism in a quieter area. This apartment met all our needs. Nearby are lovely small shops such as a bakery, greengrocery on a barge, bookshop, toyshop, pharmacy etc. The squares are buzzing with activity in the evenings, it was so nice to see young people and children gather there every evening just to play and talk. There was a real feeling of community, which I had never experienced when staying in Venice before. The apartment is beautifully furnished and our host went to the trouble to meet us from the water taxi as we arrived later than we expected. She explained everything and gave us her contact details in case we needed anything. A perfect few days in the most beautiful city on earth

“Lovely apartment in very convenient area”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Comfortable apartment especially for a couple, in an area close to the arrival points and with good shops and restaurants nearby. Note: If used by three or more people, the sofa bed in the living room is the best option as the steps up to the 'study room' are not suitable for older people or young children.

“The best of Venice!”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife & I stayed at this apartment for 4 nights, five days. The photos of this apartment are exactly what you will find when you arrive. On arrival our contact Lorenza was waiting for us at the drop off location directly outside of the apartment. My wife and I took a water taxi from the airport (a must do). Lorenza is very friendly and speaks very good English as my wife and I do not speak Italian. The location is fantastic! Campo Santa Margherita square is only a Minute away Food, shopping, drinks can all be found in moments from this location. We would recommend this to our family & friends. Very nice.
