Description from the manager
Venice is full of history and has been founded by the refugees of the mainland after the Barbarian invasions in the 6th to 7th century AC.
The most antique areas of the Lagoon are: Torcello, San Marco, San Pietro di Castello and Rialto. The other "islands" were populated and connected in the period after the 10th century. In fact, in the Red House, the archeologist found antique roman period pavement - now covered by restauration works, and one of the oldest walls made of sesquipedales, the antique large Roman bricks dated 10th Century.

"The Red House" charming house in central Venice
Venice, Veneto - Venice, Italy
Additional Location Information
The Red House is located in San Marco, Salizada San Samuele 3145/a, just behind Campo Santo Stefano and Palazzo Grassi in a classy residential area. The large sunny and very lively Campo Santo Stefano has 5 outdoor cafes where to enjoy your cappuccino or aperitiv, and two good restaurants. A traditional meeting place for the Venetians.
If you arrive in Venice by car or train, the Vaporetto (public water bus) is the best way to reach us. Line 2 and 1 will bring you just 3/5m minutes from the house door. The Red House is located by the Vaporetto stops of S. Samuele (Line 2), close to S. Angelo stop (line 1) in the most prestigious and central part of Venice, known for the antique shops and art galleries. If you arrive by airplane, the Alilaguna service from Marco Polo airport stops at Sant'Angelo and the water taxi can bring you to San Samuele square dock that is only 3 minutes from our house. Excellent choice of cafe's and restaurants nearby, highly reccomended. Art galleries, antique shops and luxury design show rooms just outside your door.
There are many ways to get to central Venice from the Airport: Alilaguna boat (fast and direct), water taxi (faster, more expensive), Bus+Vaporetto (slower, more complicated). The time you need to allow to get to our house is from 1 to 2 hours depending on which transportation method you will use.
