A serene and romantic oasis for six with Rialto Bridge and boating views and its own bijou terrace directly on the Grand Canal - well-sheltered from the tourist bustle yet moments from Campo Santi Apostoli, the jewel-box Church of Santa Maria Dei Miracoli and the alleged birthplace of legendary Venetian explorer Marco Polo (1254 - 1324).
Gently nudging the fairytale 13th Century Gothic archways of the hidden little 'Campiello Del Remer' courtyard just across the water from the world-renowned Rialto Market area and the broad outside dining terraces of convivial and cosmopolitan restaurant 'Naranzaria' and the well-loved and traditional 'Bancogiro' on the opposite bank, Ca' Giulia offers light, bright and airy accommodation charmingly decorated with a hint of 20's nostalgia and the indelible stamp of style and great taste - irresistible!
There's a spacious and elegant sitting room flooded with natural light from the large, beautiful and intricately screened windows and arched glazed water door overlooking the Rialto Bridge and the ever-changing spectacle of water-borne activity along the canal. Enormously comfortable and featuring ornithological prints set against walls and furnishings of soothing 'sage' and 'sea-spray' greens perfectly in keeping with its memorable waterside setting, the room has polished terrazzo flooring, a painted closely-beamed ceiling, cushioned cane furniture and access, via the water door, to a small, dainty terrace all of your own - perfect for watching the gondolas row by, glass of Prosecco in hand.
There's a fully-furnished kitchen, well-equipped and with a washing machine, three restful and attractive bedrooms with warm wooden flooring - two with king size beds and a third with single bunk beds and two bathrooms - one tiled and with a shower en suite to the master bedroom and the other with a bathtub. The apartment also has ADSL broadband connection for added convenience.
Rental price includes GAS, ELECTRICITY, LINEN and FINAL CLEANING
One of our bestsellers - a fantastically roomy and airy apartment, totally romantic and with breathtaking views over the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge, yet hidden away in a 'secret' campiello - the best of both worlds!
Within easy reach of a local 'Coop' supermarket for stocking up on supplies plus Venice's only department store 'Coin' and the many shops of the Strada Nuova and Rialto area.
Also close to a number of well-reviewed restaurants including the upmarket 'Fiaschetteria Toscana' at the head of the calle, 'Osteria La Bottega ai Promessi Sposi' and 'Casa Mia' both on the same little alleyway near Campo Santi Apostoli, the great range of snacks at 'Gislon' (their 'mozzarella in carrozza' is a must!) and the tucked away courtyard of 'ai Rusteghi' near San Bartholomeo, not forgetting the picturesque 'Taverna Del Campiello Remer' just moments from the apartment....Read more

It's a wonderful apartment; it's located at the ground floor of a beautiful old palazzo, facing the Grand Canal. The Rialto Bridge is 150 m away. The apartment is big, well manteined, and its location is the best! After a day walking in Venice, you can relax in the little balcony, seeing the gondolas and drinking a glass of Prosecco. There is a lot of restaurants and bars in a short walk. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Excellent location right on the Grand Canal,very clean and the mgr anna was exceptional as well as VOV. Might be too noisy for some as the dock was used for commercial purposes so a lot was going on. We found that was part of the bustle! The restaurant outside the door was wonderful! Read more
Ciao Ellinor and Brant! I’m so pleased you loved staying right on the Grand Canal and that you enjoyed how it feels to be part of daily Venetian life – also glad you enjoyed the Taverna del Campiello Remer (very hard to find for many visitors to Venice but not for guests at the apartment!) Hope we have the pleasure of seeing you again soon.
Ciao e Grazie

We stayed at Ca'Giulia over Easter in 2010. ViewsonVenice's website was easy to navigate and accurately described the property. We had to request a change in property after having already booked online. This was dealt with professionally and without any hassle. ViewsonVenice has always responded quickly and in a helpful way. The staff we met in Venice was equally friendly and helpful.
The property was beautifully located on the Grand Canal - very close to the Rialto bridge. It was wonderful to get up early, get comfy on the window sill and watch life go by on the canal. The location was ideal for exploring Venice. Everything was clean and well kept. The heating worked well and was easy to adjust. We missed nothing except perhaps a foreign news channel on the TV. The Wifi connection was great to have. Being on the ground floor meant being somewhat closer to outside life than one might wish - but the apartment is well isolated. All in all Ca'Guilia was very special and helped make the vacation a memorable and enjoyable experience. Read more
Great news to hear of your memorable holiday at Ca' Giulia. I can't think of a better way to start each day than watching life go by on the Grand Canal - a view that never ceases to delight me, even after all these years! Your kind comments and the time you've taken to let us know are very much appreciated and I will certainly pass these on to my team. Looking forward to seeing you in Venice again soon.
Ciao e Grazie

Ca' Giulia is a ground floor,clean,comfortable & well-equipped apartment. It perfectly accommodated an all-age family ranging from 11 to 78! Its balcony looking on to the Grand Canal, provided endless fascination. August was very hot:an improved air-conditioning unit would have been appreciated.
