This recently restored apartment is located near the San Giobbe bridge in the authentic Venetian district of Cannaregio. Located on the northwest side of Venice, this neighborhood is home to local Venetians and reflects a characteristic Italian atmosphere. Located on the ground floor of a completely restored ancient palazzo, San Giobbe sleeps a maximum of six people and has a lovely private terrace. Here guests can rest and enjoy an “al fresco” meal after a busy day of sightseeing in this most remarkable city.
SAN GIOBBE RENTS FOR A 3 NIGHT MINIMUM.
The San Giobbe apartment is part of a gated property and the entrance is through the garden belonging to the entire palazzo community. On the same property there are other apartments sharing the main entrance and a part of the communal garden. In the past this group of houses used to be called the “Barchesse” (wings) of the 16th century palazzo.
The apartment (75 square meters) is located on the ground floor and has a private terrace with table and chairs.
The living room is comfortably furnished with two sofas (one can be converted into a sofa bed for 1 adult or 2 children), arm chairs and television. There is a dining corner with a table for 4-6 people. The kitchen area is fully equipped with a small fridge, oven, dishwasher, toaster, kettle and gas range stove.
There are two bedrooms: One twin bedded room with two single beds and windows facing the garden. The beds can be put together if required, but we suggest leaving them as singles since the room is not very large. The other bedroom is a double bedroom (a queen bed or two twin beds) also with windows facing the garden. There are two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bathtub and handheld shower attachment.
The apartment is equipped with central heating, a washing machine, and an iron and ironing board. A cell phone is available for guest rental but the pre-paid card is not included in the price. Extra maid service and extra change of linen are available for an additional fee. The apartment has been provided with fans.
San Giobbe apartment is located a few meters from the Fondamenta di Cannaregio, the large sidewalk on the main canal in this part of the city. It is very well connected with San Marco Square and other main points of interest in Venice by ferry. The ferry stop (called San Giobbe) is located just on the other side of the canal. Delicious restaurants, bars, food shops, pharmacies and a post office are all within a 5-minute walk from the apartment. We can highly recommend the “Trattoria Marisa”, on the Fondamenta of Cannaregio, just next to the San Giobbe apartment. It also has delicious meals to carry out.
The Santa Lucia train station can be reached within a 10-minute walk or by ferry in 10 minutes. This line connects guests with the Piazzale Roma. From the Venice Marco Polo Airport there is a connection by ferry to Fondamenta Nove to reach the San Giobbe apartment. Other points of interest in the area include San Marco, Accademia, and Chiesa della Salute (all only a 15-20 minute walk away).

Not to be missed in Cannaregio:
Church of Santa Maria di Nazareth o dei Carmelitani Scalzi (Barefoot Carmelites) - This church was built in 1660 from a design by Baldassarre Longhena. The grandiose façade was created by Giuseppe Sardi. After an Austrian bomb exploded on 27 October 1915, the frescoed vault by Tiepolo collapsed. Today, only a few fragments remain in the Galleries of the Accademia di Belle Arti. In 1934 the ceiling was replaced, and it was adorned with a fresco by Ettore Tito. The first chapel of the right-hand nave has a vault frescoed by G.B.Tiepolo.
Square and Church of San Geremia - The church houses the relics of Saint Lucy
Palazzo Labia - This palace was built at the end of the seventeenth century by the Labias, a family of rich Catalan merchants. The inside is decorated with frescoes by Tiepolo. It is now headquarters of the Italian State Television.
Church of San Giobbe (1450-70) - This church has a Renaissance portal by Pietro Lombardo. Inside it is decorated with the works of Tuscan artists such as Luca della Robbia.
Jewish Ghetto - The term 'ghetto' derives from the foundries that were found in the area in which the metal was 'gettato' or smelted. In 1509 it became the part of the city that was reserved for the Jews. They built their 'schole' or synagogues here. the first one was the Schola Tedesca (German Synagogue), which was built in 1528. It was followed by the Schola Canton and the Schola Italiana. The Schola Spagnola was rebuilt by Baldassarre Longhena. The German synagogue houses the museum of Jewish art and contains many fine religious exhibits.
Ca' d'Oro - This house was built by Marino Contarini in 1441, who used the best stonemasons of his time. It is considered the most striking example of Venetian Gothic. It has a façade with polychrome marble molding and certain elements were overlaid with gold, which was why it was called the ca' d'Oro. The palace at one point became the property of Baron Giorgio Franchetti who donated it to the State in 1916 and is now a museum, with works by Mantegna, paintings of Tuscan school and a beautiful collection of Renaissance bronzes.
Oratorio dei Crociferi - This is a treasure trove of works by Palma il Giovane depicting the history of the religious order of the Crociferi, which was founded in the thirteenth century and suppressed in the seventeenth century.
Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli - Built around 1482 from a design by Pietro Lombardo.
