Having used Truly Venice before and being very impressed with their arrangements, we booked week in the Grassi Apartment for the first week in June.
Truly Venice arranged a water taxi for us from the airport and we arrived at the apartment after traveling down the Grand Canal under the Rialto Bridge. The apartment is on the Grand Canal and the views are stunning.
The 2nd floor apartment is stunningly beautiful and also very light and airy. Everything that we needed was there and it was spotlessly clean.
The water bus stop is only 2 minutes away but the area around the apartment is very quiet. There are some lovely local bars and restaurants 5 minutes away, and also a grocers and wine shop.
A few minutes further and you are in Campo San Stefano with the crowds, cafes and restaurants. Plus it's only a leisurely 15 minutes to St Marks Square.
We will definitely return through Truly Venice and would recommend the apartment to anyone who wants a lovely quiet apartment that's only minutes from all the tourist places.
We enjoyed staying in this apartment. It had a great view of the canal. The rooms were large though the decorating was severely dated. We found the apartment building to be safe, quiet and peaceful, which was important.
We stayed at Grassi for a week in September this year (2013) and it was even better and more beautiful than we expected. One of our group of 5 (my husband) had broken his foot only 2 weeks prior to our vacation, but the convenience of an elevator and the nearby vaporetto stop (San Samuele) made it easy for him to get around. Everything was perfect and Daniela was extremely helpful. Her Truly Venice website made choosing an apartment easy, and the inclusion of floor plans is brilliant. Having a water taxi reservation in advance made everything easier and when we left, the taxi was at our vaporetto stop at exactly the time Danila had arranged. All in all, great service, great location and great apartment made for lots of fun. We will definately recommend Truly Venice to anyone and everyone!
