Dreamy views across the Grand Canal towards gleaming white Santa Maria della Salute and the Punta della Dogana museum. Just steps from Piazza San Marco.
The Alloro apartment is on the 3rd floor (4th floor North American) of a classic Venetian palace built in 1830.
You know you can be in no other place in the world when you see the Grand Canal and the gleaming white basilica of Santa Maria across the water from the living room windows.
The neutral upholstery is decorated with brightly colored pillows that pick up the blue of the gorgeous oil painting between the windows.
A circular dining table is on one side of the living room and there is also a table in the kitchen.
You will be welcomed with a bottle of Bellini, the classic Venetian beverage made famous by nearby Harry's Bar. Fresh croissants will be delivered to your door each day. The kitchen is prepared for you with bottled water, fresh fruit, coffee capsules, fresh milk, sweeteners, butter, jam, sliced bread as well as salt, pepper, olive oil and vinegar.
The princely master bedroom adjoins the living room with its canopied extra large king bed. There is a sofa and a fireplace. The window also overlooks the grand canal, too. Enjoy the view day and night.
The second bedroom has two single beds that can be joined to form a king. A little sofa under a porthole window to unwind privately.
The floors are a warm-colored terrazzo, a traditional finish developed originally in Venice centuries ago. Area carpets
Up one floor is a nice large terrace that is shared by this apartment and the other two in the building, Cassia (that has its own private terrace above the apartment) and Menta. It has two wicker sofas, two armchairs and a table for 8.

Our Guest Reviews
Amazingly great place to stay in Venice
This is our second year in a row at Alloro arranged by Italy Perfect
The apartment and all of their services are absolutely excellent. Perfect location and lots of room.
[Thank you so much Jay, we look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Venice.
The apartment was a wonderful surprise - It was much larger than we had expected, it was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The staff were amazing, helpful and really lovely.
The location was tremendous, close to everything and the area was safe and secure.
We would highly recommend this apartment and will certainly be back.
[Thank you Deena, we look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]
What a magnificent position, overlooking the Grand Canal and 100metres from San Marco Square. Once again, well appointed, we were not wanting for anything. The service provided by your agent was superb, both he and his wife were very helpful.
As usual, The 'Perfect' accommodation is perfect. Well worth the extra cost.
[Thank you Colin! The Italy Perfect Team]
A magnificent stay in Venice
.....for a magnificent stay in Venice. The apartment, location, logistics and staff were all beyond expectations. My family could not have asked for anything better.
And how ironic that Tracy has met your son in our Beacon Hill neighborhood.
We have already recommended your services to friends. And we will be back in touch for our next trip.
Exactly what we were looking for
We needed a place with a kitchen because one of our party has severe food allergies. But we also wanted to have someone available to call on if we needed help in a strange city, which is why hotels are often the best option. The Alloro unit was perfect for us because there was staff on site who could help us with things like getting groceries or arranging for a water taxi to pick us up at the train station and take us back at the end of our stay. The location was ideal. The views were as good as one can get in Venice, located at the mouth of the Grand Canal at a point where the gondolas would cruise by with singers singing arias from Italian operas. It was nothing short of spectacular. Right next to the Westin hotel which has a nice waterfront bar and restaurant, overpriced but you can't beat the views. The front door is on a very quiet square, but the main action is only a few feet up the alley. The water taxi picked us up at the train station and took us right to the water side entrance of the house where we were greeted and taken right up to the apartment. The house is authentically old and retains every bit of its charm while still offering all the modern amenities. Italy Perfect also connected us with Rita Sartorri, a local guide who knows everything there is to know about Venice. We would have booked her for two days if she had been available. She walked us through parts of Venice that tourists simply don't go to and pointed out features of life there that brought the city and its history to life.
The one thing about Venice that I found underwhelming was the food. There must be some good restaurants there, but there are a ton of mediocre and overpriced ones. By contrast, we spent a couple of nights in Milan and easily found great dining through the concierge without half trying. I would recommend guests work with the Italy Perfect house staff upon arrival and plan out dinners. Winging it did not work for us.
I have traveled a lot in my life and I have limited tolerance for hassle and discomfort. If I am going to go to the trouble and expense of visiting a place like Venice I want it to be an experience with no compromises. Italy Perfect is designed for people like me.

Traveling to Venice and want to stay on the Grand Canal with amazing views in luxury accommodations? This is your place.
The apartment is spacious, beautifully appointed, and staffed by the nicest people you will meet. When we travel we typically stay at big name hotel chains but no more. Warm croissants each morning, beds made and apartment cleaned, a constant supply of bottled still and sparkling water all included, was awesome particularly traveling with children.
I mention the children part as our combined family has four. (so we had a second apartment) but to all be together at night vs. going to separate rooms, made the family trip feel more like family at night. Sure teenagers are going to be on iPhones etc. but we were able to all be together and plan our days.
I want to make a comment about the savings compared to a hotel suit but its just not a fair comparison. Pay up front you don't get nickeled and dimes for each little thing you would expect, like plenty of water, and you still have laundry hotels can't compete. We will be back!

We spent a wonderful week in this charming appartement. Exceptionnal location on the grand canal, minutes from Place St Marc and other great venetian landmarks, beautifull, clean and well decorated.
First class service from the owner's staff with daily maid service and even fresh croissants every morning at the door!
This beats any hotel in the City.
[Thank you Francois, we are delighted that you had a wonderful time! The Italy Perfect Team]
We absolutely loved our stay at the enchanting Alloro apartment in Venice (we actually stayed an extra night)! Beautifully decorated apartment with fabulous Venetian terrazzo floors in a lovey historic building overlooking the Grand Canal. We could have spent all day just staring out the windows with a glass of wine or espresso enjoying the sights and sounds below. Gondolas floated by with opera singers or guitarists serenading their passengers and incredible sunrises and sunsets cast long, warm light onto the majestic old buildings which made us feel like we were in a renaissance painting! It was so nice to take a break from the streets and still enjoy the best of Venice from the apartment. We had a delicious dinner at Da Fiori, and loved walking around the canals and discovering this romantic city. The apartment is in a very convenient location, minutes from Piazza San Marco, and an easy walk to everything. Italy Perfect took care of every detail and more importantly was completely available during our stay. It was also so nice to have a local contact for any questions or recommendations.
