I was born in Venice, and I have spent most of my life in Venice. Over time I have noticed how the city has changed—how it has adapted itself to the new demands of modernity, in its own particular fashion. Since 2011 I leave the city often, and every time I return to Venice I feel as if I’ve lost my bearings. I seem to find myself in a halfway state, between someone who’s spent his childhood in a place and delighted in its spirit, and someone who feels from time to time like a mere observer in that place. I believe both outsiders and Venetians can share the same emotions before the unique beauty of the city. Feeling the same sensations, I cannot help but adhere to a common vision—true, passionate, gratifying, and grateful for a culture that has marked Western history. At heart, any foreigner who really loves Venice is also a Venetian. I love nature and culture, both global and local. I believe in sharing, learning, exchanging and respecting. I’m very energetic and active. I love photography, and I’m especially passionate about traveling.
Why Alessandra chose Venice-Murano-Burano
Because Venice is the best city in the world! If you are looking for arts, relaxation, comfort and excellent food, it is an excellent choice for short and long visits.
What makes this Apartment unique
Venice is one of the most interesting and romantic cities in the entire world, known as “La Serenissima" or the Most Serene, it has been captivating its visitors for hundreds of years. Ancient buildings never looked as romantic as in Venice, where centuries-old “palazzi" are reflected in this city's plentiful canals. Venice, the world's only pedestrian city, is best enjoyed by walking. The absence of car traffic makes this the perfect way to experience what Venice has to offer. As a city that cherishes its food, the famous Rialto Market is a delicious way to experience the Venice dining scene. Particularly known as a fish market, the Rialto Market also offers plenty of fresh vegetables and fruit for sale, too. Visitors may stroll through the market, window-shopping or simply point to what they want to purchase—friendly vendors will bag it up. The Rialto Bridge, near the Rialto Market, contains a row of restaurants with tables by the canal, offering a true Venice dining experience by the city's canal lights. First-time visitors may at first be surprised that the main way of getting around Venice is on foot. It is not a large city, and it is quite possible to walk from one end to the other in an hour. In fact, one of the many joys of visiting Venice is simply walking through its traffic-free streets and alleyways, catching sight of the canals as you cross the characteristic Venetian bridges. The only other way of getting around is by boat, and for everyday travel you will generally use the vaporetto and motoscafo water buses. Water taxis are more expensive - in fact, probably the most expensive taxis in the world - but are very fast and are able to take you along back routes that offer an alternative view of the city. Gondolas are hardly a practical way of getting from A to B, but will take you on the most romantic of journeys along almost any canal in Venice.

Clean spacious flat in the heart of Venice
Lovely, clean, well-equipped flat on a pretty square in Venice. Alessandra and her husband could not have been more helpful and welcoming. They gave us some great tips and were there to take our calls and greet us at the water bus. She even left traditional biscuits for us. The flat has a/c if needed. The only (tiny) downsides for us were that the master bed is very hard (but some like it that way) and the person opening the bar downstairs at 7:30am on Saturday morning likes to play his music very loud. But silence on Sunday morning was golden.
Thank you for your review! We were delighted to have you and your beautiful family. I’m pleased your stay was pleasant and satisfying!
We have a memory foam topper for any quests who like a soft bed instead of firm. We always do everything we can to make our guests stay as comfortably as possible. Our guests' wish is our command! You just need to ask!
Saturday May 26 was the Big Opening day of the 16th International Architecture Exhibition. The city was partying from the morning to the next sunrise. It was really exciting as La Biennale di Venezia presented an outstanding calendar of events. As you realized the whole city was involved in this important celebration, residents as well as visitors.
I look forward to welcoming you the next time you're back in Venice.
A wonderful spot in a perfect location
Alessandra helped me realize a dream of spending time living in Venice. She is a kind, considerate host who did so much to help me ease into Venetian life. Her love of her native city is very apparent and she helped me experience things I never would have found on my own. The apartment is lovely and the location in San Polo a perfect home-base for exploring Venice and the Lagoon. I cant wait until I return again!
Thanks Susan for yours words, these ones reward the effort I put in welcoming my guests. Thank you for your enthusiasm and your sparkling energy! I am pleased your stay was pleasant and satisfying. I look forward to welcoming you when you will be back in Venice.
