Three apartments in the Castello area of San Lorenzo, really the best of both worlds close to all the must-see sights of St Mark's Square and yet right next to the quieter, more atmospheric neighbourhood of Castello.
The apartments feature beamed ceilings, are on the ground floor of a nice palazzetto, are in good condition, and are a good investment opportunity.
Apartment A: Two-room apartment of about 53 sqm. composed of living room with kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom, with hallway.
Apartment B: Two-room apartment of about 52 sqm. composed of living room with kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom, with hallway.
Apartment C: Three-room apartment of about 66 sqm. composed of living room, kitchen-dining room, bedroom, bathroom and hallway.
A fabulous spot, less than ten minutes from all the must-see sights of St Mark's Square (including the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Clock Tower) and yet right next to the quieter, more atmospheric neighbourhood of Castello.
A short walk to the atmospheric Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni and its wonderful Carpaccio paintings, the monumental Dominican Basilica di Santi Giovanni e Paolo (one of the largest churches in Venice and burial place of no fewer than 25 Venetian Doges), and to Campo Santa Maria Formosa (site of the Querini Stampalia) passing Palazzo Grimani on the way.
And even closer to home - moments to the cavernous and newly restored Church of San Lorenzo (long closed but now home to Ocean Space - a collaborative platform focusing on ocean conservation) and to the Museo di Dipinti Sacri Byzanti (Museum of Icons) just along the canal.
Also within easy reach of the local Punto supermarket and to the vaporetto (water bus) stop at San Zaccaria for easy travel around the city.
