Residenza San Lio is a very spacious apartment that can accommodate up to a maximum of 6 people just a few steps from the Rialto Bridge.
It consists of an entrace, a comfortable double room, a large living room with a double sofa-bed, a well equipped kitchen, a bedroom with a bunk bed, a bathroom with a bathtub and shower.
The only flight of stairs to reach the apartment is a little difficult, not suitable for very elderly or people with mobility problems.
The apartment is surrounded by the most famous stores where you can go shopping, and by the best (website hidden). Mark's Square, with its towering bell tower and with its amazing Basilica, is an Istrian stone living room, surrounded by antique cafés and an incomparable atmosphere that during sunrise is romantic and warm, accompanied by the sounds of orchestras. Once you pass the magnificent Doge's Palace and you reach the Riva degli Schiavoni, there is the St. Mark's Basin, with Saint George's Island from which you can see gondolas and boats. On the right, there is the extraordinary profile of the Basilica della Salute, a place that Venetian people love, and celebrate its feast during the month of November. On the left, instead, you can admire the long shore that, overcoming the Arsenale entrance, reaches the Giardini, headquarters of the famous Biennale d'Arte. If you continue that way, you can see on the horizon, the island of the Venice Lido, where every year there is the important Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica (Venice film festival).

If you are going to visit Venice then you must stay at Massimo's wonderful apartment! On a scale from 1-5 we rated this location a 5.
Massimo provided great directions on how to get from the airport to the Rialto Bridge boat stop where he met us and walked us to the apartment. He provided us with a map of the city and gave great directions and recommendations on what to see and where to eat.
The apartment is very close to the famous Rialto Bridge and really was very close to all of the highlights you want to hit when in Venice. We walked all over the island and the central location of the apartment was perfect. There is a supermarket across the street and some lovely deli stores and markets nearby.
The apartment in my opinion was better than what the photos depict on the website. There is plenty of space to accommodate 4-6 comfortably. Large master room with queen bed, small guest room with bunk beds, a pull out bed in the living room, nice size bathroom with shower, dining area and fully equipped kitchen. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. You have everything you need plus more. The entry is off a side road with a locked door and about 30 stairs to climb where you reach your door. Not a bad climb at all, easy. We felt very safe and secure at all times during our stay in this apartment. Wifi included.
Massimo was a dream and honestly my husband and I felt that he made our Venice experience something really special. Massimo was prompt and helpful with all questions and concerns prior to our trip and while we were there. He is a kind and wonderful man who loves his city and home and is proud to share its beauty. He greeted us with a warm smile and embrace at the boat drop off and welcomed us with a bottle of wine and cheer. One afternoon my husband and I were sitting enjoying a drink on one of the canals enjoying the beautiful day and Massimo walks by the a gelato in hand and smile on his face. Just a truly lovely person who we are thankful to have met and hope to see again.
Excellent Airbnb experience. We highly recommend staying at this location should you visit Venice. We walked practically the entire island during our stay and we're pleased with this location and with our Host. Thank you Massimo!
My first AirBnB book and I don't think it could have been a better experience with Massimo! Our trains got in earlier than the check-in time stated but of course with notice, Massimo made arrangements for it to be possible with us dropping our luggages off as soon as we got in so that we were able to tour and see the beauty of Venice right away.
The place could not have been better. It was very clean and located in an ideal spot in Venice between the Rialto bridge and St. Mark's square. Massimo made sure all of possible necessities were in the apartment, especially in filling the refrigerator and cupboards. Right downstairs and about 20 feet from the entrance is a handy grocery market as well!
Massimo is a great host, the best one I've had from airBnB by far until now, it's as simple as that !!
Massimo's place was SO amazing and he is such a great host ! He picked us right up from the Rialto Bridge and brought us to his place not 10 minutes away walking. His apartment was even better than the pictures and he supplied us with wine, coffee, fruits and much more ! He took the time to explain the great spots of Venice and had a nice map ready for us . Massimo was always available to talk and when he answered the phone it was always with the nicest tone. I can't say enough good things about him and his place. We had the best 4 days in Venice ! Thank you ! I would highly recommend Massimo's beautiful , large , clean apartment to anyone looking to have the best experience in the heart of magical Venice !
Massimo was fantastic! Very hospitable, generous and made the process very easy. He met me at the ferry stop to walk me to the Air BnB which was great, otherwise I would not have known how to get there. He was extremely kind and I would stay at his apartment again! It was very clean and even left us food for breakfast and wine.
The listing was very accurate. It was right in between Rialto and St. Marks, making it the perfect location to explore Venezia from. Massimo was an excellent host and was very interested in helping out as much as possible, from working on your schedule to check in to being available on short notice if something comes up during your stay. I found the space very welcoming and very usable, the fully stocked kitchen was great and the many blankets in the wardrobe made the cold weekend in Venezia much more comfortable. Would definitely stay with Massimo again.
The apartment is really very close to Rialto Bridge. Even the San Marco Place is 5 min. walking distance. Cosy apartment is very clean and you have everything you need for a short or longer stay. There is a little supermarket next door.
And the host, the host Massimo, is helpful und kind. He will give you the best tips for the local restaurants, interesting museums for big and small.
We really enjoyed the stay in Massimo's apartment.
