Finding a place to stay in Venice
Venice is a tiny city and there is never enough accommodation for every 20 million people visiting this beautiful city every year. Because every room counts, vacation rentals in Venice may prove a good money-saving alternative to traditional hotels.
Rent an apartment in Venice and you get a home with all the comforts and perks of independent living. You can cook, make tea or coffee, bring in alcohol, have guests over, work and rest whenever you like without being bothered. Apartments in Venice provide much more living space than a standard hotel room, and you will feel much more comfortable in a separate bedroom, a living room and with a fully functional kitchen.
If you are travelling with family or friends, renting a 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom vacation rental in Venice allows you to save money. Booking two or three adjacent hotel rooms is a pricey endeavour regardless of the city you want to stay in. Apartment rentals in Venice, however, are usually priced per unit, not per guest, which makes vacation rentals a great option for money-savvy travellers.
Because Venice is so tiny, you will be close to all the attractions and historic sites of the city - guaranteed, regardless of the location you choose for your Venice accommodation. There is a right combination of price, size, amenities and location that will make a perfect Venice vacation home.
Sweet Home Abroad offers apartment and villa vacation rentals all over Europe and North America as well.

Districts of Venice

Venice is divided into six districts called sestieri with own municipal administration and house numbering system, unique for each sestiere and quite confusing for tourists and guests of the city. Venice is such a tiny place that getting from A to B is never a problem regardless of where A and B are, given of course that you mastered the art of navigating Venetian canals and bridges (or lack thereof). Any rental apartment you choose in the old city has a central location by definition, regardless of what district of Venice it is in.

Cannaregio is located on the northwestern part of Venice and is the most populated district of the city with 20 000 people living there. Its points of interest include the museum of Ca’d’Oro, the Venetian Ghetto and the Gullie bridge.

San-Polo is the smallest and the oldest part of town occupying only around 85 acres of venetian land. It is named after the church of San-Polo. The other attractions are the church of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, the Rialto bridge, Scuola Grande di San Rocco and others.

San-Marco is as central as it gets in Venice, because the main basilica of the city – Basilica di San Marco, of course – is located here. It is the most touristy area of Venice where once the Venetian government was housed.

Dorsoduro (along with the island of Guidecca) is on the southern side of Venice and the land most elevated above the sea level which is no small feat in the city where tides and floods are so common. In part residential, in part arty, it attracts tourists because of the galleries of Accademia that are located here.

Castello is the largest district of Venice, whose attractions include the Biennale Gardens, Scuola Grande di San Marco and the church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo.

A large chunk of Santa Croce district used to be the Luprio swamp, which in the 20th century was drained and built on extensively. This is where Piazzale Roma, the city’s transportation hub and the largest parking lot, can be found. You can’t take your car any further.
