If you choose a rental apartment in the historic centre of Venice, in the district of Dorsoduro in the Salute – Accademia zone, your stay will be exclusive and full of romance.
This zone is elegant and very peaceful, with a wealth of wonderful art galleries where you can see and enjoy classical, modern and contemporary works of art.
Amongst the best art galleries, we should mention the Guggenheim Museum of Modern Art, the Punta della Dogana Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as the Accademia Galleries which house some of the most important works of classical art in the city by artists of the calibre of Titian, Tintoretto, Leonardo Da Vinci, Bellini and many others.
Before you enter your rental apartment, you can stop and admire the striking view of the Basilica della Salute from the Accademia bridge. This outstanding basilica in the baroque style is home to magnificent works by Titian and Tintoretto. It was constructed to commemorate the end of the plague in 1630 and gives its name to one of the annual events most dear to the Venetians – the “Festa della Madonna della Salute”. Otherwise, you can take a romantic stroll along the Fondamenta delle Zattere gazing at the sunset on the lagoon.
Other churches of major historical and cultural importance in the zone are the Chiesa di San Sebastiano and the Chiesa dei Gesuiti in which you can admire a stunning cieling painted by Tiepolo.
A rental apartment in this part of Venice is the ideal location for those coming to the city by car as Piazzale Roma is the only place in Venice designated for parking. At Piazzale Roma, it is also worth visiting the modern (and much talked of) Ponte della Costituzione, designed by Santiago Calatrava, the fourth bridge on the Grand Canal.
Booking one of the holiday apartments in this area of Venice will make your stay an unforgettable, emotional experience.
