Venice City

Filters: 12 properties match your filters

Inspired by the Greek and Arab cities of the early Middle Ages, Venice is built on 118 islands. It is a bewitching maze of alleys, bridges, canals, and piazze. Long a cultural center, the Venetian school bred high renaissance masters such as Titian and Tintoretto; the city's art collection is rivaled only by that of Florence. Piazza San Marco is perhaps one of the finest medieval squares in Europe. The dialect of Venice is without comparison and is virtually undecipherable to the uninitiated: for example, rio' means "canal", while rio' terra means "filled-in canal". Spring's renowned Carnevale is celebrated in distinctive masquerade and commemorated with theatrical spectacles. The Biennale, the world's most famous contemporary art show, draws an urbane, international crowd to Venice every other year. If you are searching for a private place to stay in Venice, explore our Venice Italy Apartments and Rentals.

Cannaregio  -  [ Matches:  2 Villas and Apartments]

The Cannaregio district is the city's most northern section. Here you'll find alleyways filled with shops and artists' studios. Cannaregio is historically known as the ghetto, or foundry, as the word is translated from Italian. Originally it was the Jewish section of town, and eventually it became a Jewish ghetto. Today it still maintains its tradition of Jewish roots with a bakery, kosher butcher, library, and a small museum. While staying in one of our Venice rentals, in Cannaregio, other interesting sights include Madonna dell' Orto Church, Gesuiti Church, and Ca d' Oro. Madonna dell' Orto is known for its Tintoretto paintings as well as a statue of The Virgin Mary, which is said to have miraculous powers. Gesuiti, as it is referred to in Venice, is the first monastery of the Jesuits established in this region. Its facade is covered in green and white limestone. Ca' d' Oro, or Pallazzo Labia, faces the Grand Canale and is known for its spectacular façade which is adorned with gold leaf, vermillion, and ultramarine. Within you can find paintings and carvings by greats such as Titian, Bellini, and Lombardo.

Castello  -  [ Matches:  2 Villas and Apartments]

Inhabited by working Venetians, Castello is not a typical destination on the average tourist's itinerary. This is indeed a pity, as Castello has a colorful history and is home to some of the city's greatest sights. Some of the most exclusive hotels are located on this neighborhood's Riva degli Schiavoni, which spans from the Palazzo Ducale, home to the doges and seat of the government, to the Arsenale. There's also the famous Santa Maria della Pieta church, where concerts are held nightly. The so-called “Vivaldi church” owes its fame to the great composer's entourage of teenage courtesans. Educated in music, language, art, and indiscretions, Vivaldi's “pupils” became some of the most powerful women in Venice. Enjoying a Venice apartment here offers Castello's other points of interest including San Zaccaria (for its “Madonna with Saints and Angel Musician” by Bellini), the Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, and the Nautical Museum, which is great for kids.

Dorsoduro  -  [ Matches:  5 Villas and Apartments]

One of the few islands built on solid ground, Dorsuduro is home to a lively mix of students, tourists, and locals. The Ca' Rezzonica and the Scuola Grande dei Carmini are two famous museums in the neighborhood. Built in 1649, Ca' Rezzonica was sold to poet Robert Browning and his son in 1888 by the Rezzonica family. Today it is owned by the Venice Municipality and is considered one of the most important museums of Venice. The Scuola Grande dei Carmini displays nine ceiling panels by Tiepolo. To sample the local cuisine while staying in a Venice apartment in Dorsoduro, take a walk over the Ponte dei Pugni and purchase some mouth watering treats from the produce barge on the Rio San Barnaba.

San Marco  -  [ Matches:  1 Villas and Apartments]

Long the center of life in Venice, San Marco has scarcely a mediocre shop. It is here that you'll find purveyors of every luxury good available. Historically, one's arrival by boat to the Piazza San Marco offered an instant taste of the wealth and power of Venice. The piazza remains a stunning sight, and St. Mark's Basilica and the Palazzo Ducale are truly awesome. St. Mark is actually buried in a tomb in front of the Basilica. Inside, gold leaf, jewels, and art from throughout the ages adorn this magnificent structure. Also fascinating is the Doge's Palace, which represents a unique juxtaposition of palace and prison. It's no surprise that San Marco is flooded with tourists for most of the year. July and August can be downright mobbed, especially in and around the piazza.

San Polo  -  [ Matches:  1 Villas and Apartments]

The business center of Venice, San Polo is teeming with working people who flock to time-honored cafes and bakeries for a noon respite. In the midst of this daily hustle and bustle lie such architectural gems as the Rialto Bridge, one of the most beautiful bridges in Venice. Offering exquisite views, it marks the center of the city. Riva de Vin, the wine market of the boats, is also located near to the bridge. Art lovers with a taste for Donatello and Bellini should pay a visit to the Frari Church, where Titian is buried. Masterworks by members of the Venetian school can also be found in San Polo: Tintoretto's “Crucifixion” from 1568 hangs in the San Cassiano Church, while his “Last Supper” hangs in the San Polo Church.
