Where to stay in Venice? It is a legitimate question and one which every visitor or tourist asks themselves when they want to visit this magnificent city.
The fundamental point is surely to choose an apartment in central Venice (Historic): it is now also possible to find apartments to rent in the outskirts of Venice, in areas like Venezia-Mestre or Marghera, areas which are often neglected and grey. Choosing this option means completely missing out on the magic of a holiday in Venice. Waking up in the morning and looking out over the Grand Canal and its architectural marvels is not exactly like opening the window overlooking a grey station on the outskirts.
Choosing an apartment in the centre of
Venice has innumerable advantages: the convenience of having an apartment a few
steps from all that the historic centre can offer you, the advantage of going
back to it every time you want to be at home (to have lunch, take a shower or
rest for an hour), the feeling of living like a true Venetian, the freedom of moving
around on foot (or by vaporetto), without timetables and without having to take
crowded buses or trains to return to the apartment.
The position of your apartment in central Venice will, at this point, be almost relative: Venice is a small city, each area has its own special features but in any case you will always be close to the principal wonders that it can offer you, you can allow yourself to become lost without ever actually going out of it.
Perhaps now you will have a clearer idea of where to stay in Venice: choosing an apartment in central Venice will give you the feeling of experiencing to the full the majestic beauty of the lagoon city, a magic consisting of charm and a gentle rhythm which will make you forget everything else.
