A sunny and welcoming apartment on the second floor of a peaceful antique palazzo in the delightful San Samuele district - a calm and cultured neighbourhood with a gentle, upmarket buzz where galleries sit close to antique shops, well clear of the hustle and bustle yet a mere stone's throw to the Palazzo Grassi Museum of Modern Art and the Campo Santo Stefano with its inviting outdoor cafes and local colour.
Steps away from the illustrious ‘Palazzo Mocenigo’ on the Grand Canal - the one time Venetian bolthole of ‘mad, bad and dangerous to know’ British romantic poet and literary figure, Lord Byron (1788-1824), and next door to ‘Casa Veronese’ - home of the outstanding 16th Century Italian Renaissance painter, Paolo Veronese (creator of ‘Wedding at Cana’ and ‘Feast in the House of Levi’ which today hangs in the Accademia Academy of Fine Arts just across the nearby Accademia Bridge), Ca Grassi 2 is bright, cheerful and nicely furnished in modern style.
It has an attractive living/dining room with a double sofa bed, dining furniture, traditional 'terrazzo' flooring and a wall almost entirely composed of floor-to-ceiling glazed doors flooding the room with light and opening directly onto a romantic columned balcony, a superb vantage point from which to observe the comings and goings along the 'Salizada' below. The kitchen, although rather tiny, is sufficiently equipped for light cooking while the double bedroom is large and stylishly fitted out with a comfortable king size bed, terrazzo flooring and an en-suite bathroom with bathtub and shower over.
And, when you’re ready to venture forth and explore or re-visit the city’s countless charms, you’ll find two vaporetto stops just minutes away along with two ‘Traghettos’ which, during operating times (please check before making your journey), ferry passengers by gondola across the Grand Canal – one running between Calle Del Tragheto (near Sant’ Angelo) and San Toma in the district of San Polo and the other running between San Samuele and Ca’ Rezzonico and its Museum of 18th Century Art in Dorsoduro.

Left on 06/25/2010 for a stay in May 2010 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jun 25, 2010Stayed May 2010
The apartment was in quiet street (apart from seagulls!) with adequate facilities for a couple and lovely views of street life from balcony. The proximity of vaporetto stop, useful shops and gorgeous squares with churches , people watching etc made it an ideal location for a few days right in the middle of Venice.
Thank you so much for letting us know how you got on during your stay at Ca' Grassi 2 - I'm delighted that you enjoyed its super location along with the views from the balcony. Regarding the latter, I thought you might be interested in this old photo http://www.osteriaalbacareto.it/storia.php?lingua=en of the Salizada San Samuele which clearly shows the apartment and its balcony in bygone times (not much seems to have changed!) Hoping to see you in Venice again soon.
Ciao e Grazie
