EXCELLENT NEIGHBORHOOD AMENITIES: a supermarket, cafès as well as restaurants and shops of all kinds. there is even a produce and fish market nearby.

VAPORETTO STOPS ARE NEARBY (lines 1, 4.1, 4.2, 5.1 and 5.2), which provide convenient service to any destination in venice (the rialto, the accademia, san marco, the arsenale, the park at the biennale), giudecca, the islands in the northern part of the estuary (murano, burano and torcello), the beach at the lido, the train station, the automobile terminal at piazzale roma, the car park at tronchetto or marco polo airport.

Sleep in Venice

Adriana and Gianni, venetian architects in love with their city and its "old stones", have restored an old blacksmith's shop and transformed it into an original kind of apartment with an enchanting living area and a beautiful bedroom for two, tastefully furnished and with careful attention to detail.

Staying at the Blacksmith's Hearth will allow you to feel completely at home, because you'll have your own corner of the city where you can relax after visiting the city.
From here you can venture forth for a traditional aperitif with "spritz" and a glass of wine and then enjoy the evening ahead of you in one of the many small restaurants and eating establishments in the area with tables outdoors.
Typically they offer seafood dishes prepared in simple but genuine ways that underscore the quality and honesty of their ingredients, as well as the prices.

It is in places such as these that you can take in at the same time the magical and relaxing atmosphere of one of the most beautiful sunsets in the city.
