A CULTURAL HOLIDAY IN THE HISTORIC CENTRE OF VENICE

The best accommodation for discovering Venice’s art and culture

Venice is synonymous with art and culture, an inexhaustible source of inspiration and a treasure trove of the most beautiful wonders of Italian artistic heritage. For those who select Venice as their destination for a cultural holiday, choosing to rent an apartment in one of the numerous areas rich in history and art is a winner. Travellers will be able to immerse themselves completely in the artistic wonders of the local culture.
Venetian art is characterised by three influences which have moulded it over the centuries: Byzantine art, of which a clear example is the Basilica di San Marco with its five domes and splendid Byzantine mosaics; Gothic art which is easily recognisable on the external facades of numerous palazzos; and the Renaissance which, more than anything, has had an enormous influence on Venetian painting.  This is evident in works by artists such as Bellini, Tintoretto and many others.
In the Castello district we have comfortable apartments to rent which are ideally located for anyone wishing to visit events such as Venice’s Biennale D’Arte or the International Exhibition of Cinema of Venice.  On the other hand, for those who wish to spend their holiday in the beating heart of Venice, they can choose one of our apartments in the San Marco area and be a stone’s throw from the Doge’s Palace, the Clock Tower, the Correr Museum and the Basilica di San Marco with its world famous piazza.  For lovers of opera and classical music, a visit to the Gran Teatro La Fenice is a must.  It has twice been destroyed by flames and has risen again just as the phoenix in the myth.  There you can listen to the most beautiful arias by composers of the calibre of Verdi, Rossini and Donizetti.

A zone of Venice which is especially rich in artistic beauty and museums is the district of Dorsoduro.  In this area you can wander around the magnificent works of the Classical Renaissance in the Accademia Galleries, contemporary art in the renowned Guggenheim Museum, the Punta della Dogana Museum with contemporary and experimental works of art and many other museums.  In this zone you can also admire the Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, a stunning baroque church built for the end of the plague epidemic in 1630.  We also have beautiful, well equipped apartments in the Cannaregio zone which is perfect for visiting the Franchetti Gallery (Palazzo della Ca’ d’Oro) or the Jewish Museum.

If, instead, you choose to rent an apartment in the San Polo zone, you will be very close to the Basilica Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, a church which houses some of Venice’s most beautiful works of art such as Bellini’s Triptych, the wooden statue of St. John the Baptist by Donatello and the magnificent Assumption by Titian.  In the Giudecca zone, we also have a wide selection of different types of apartment to rent.  This area has the well known Basilica del Redentore, which was designed in 1577 by the architect, Andrea Palladio.
All our apartments are located in the most convenient areas of the city and enable you to spend a wonderful cultural holiday in Venice, absorbing centuries of art, history and culture, a stone’s throw from timeless places and monuments.
