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.

The Rialto Bridge

The Rialto Bridge, or Ponte di Rialto in Italian, is the most well-known of four bridges crossing the Grand Canal and quite possibly the most recognizable secular monument in Venice. Similarly to the Charles Bridge in Prague, Rialto is the last in a line of bridges built on this city point, all of which perished for one reason or another. The first bridge was a pontoon constructed circa 1172, too unstable for the city’s growing human traffic needs. The second wooden one appeared in 1260 and lasted only fifty years until a revolt in Venice swept it away in 1310. The third bridge collapsed when a wedding procession marched over it in 1444. The fourth version had a drawbridge attached to it, but in mid-16th century a decision had finally been made on commissioning a solid stone bridge to settle the matters once and for all. Many famous architects including even Michelangelo expressed interest in working on the project, but a young Antonio da Ponte was chosen for the job. Not only his name, which literally translates as “bridge” from Italian, but also his somewhat daring single-arched plan suited the selection committee’s tastes, and so in 1591 the bridge was complete. It took only three years to build.
