An art lover’s dream within a prestigious San Polo palace, promising Grand Canal living at its jaw-dropping best…
Wonderfully positioned between the Rialto area just to the north (with its famous food markets, bacari and tight network of little alleyways and bridges) and the Dorsoduro district in the south (with its wide fondamente, antique shops and art galleries).
Within minutes of all that’s happening in and around Campo San Polo and Campo Santa Margherita, and a short stroll to the 14th-century Church of the Frari and the Tintoretto-filled Scuola Grande Di San Rocco.
Close to 3 supermarkets – a CRAI Cassa at Campo San Tomà, a well-stocked Conad near the Frari and a small Coop near Sant’ Aponal – in addition to a plethora of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes to satisfy all your self-catering and dining-out needs.
Close to the San Tomà vaporetto (water bus) stop for easy travel about town, and moments to the handy San Tomà traghetto which you can watch from your balcony and which ferries passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal to the must-see sights and attractions of the San Marco sestiere.
