HOW TO REACH GRANDIBEN
The apartment is set in the proximity of the ancient Arsenale, on the ground floor of Palazzo Grandiben. This palace constitutes an important example of an early gothic dwelling. Notably the loggia with five arches in the piano nobile and the narrow wings give credibility to the 14th century attribution. The Palazzo has recently undergone renovation to restore its beautiful gothic facades.The monumental hall still shows one of the tallest gothic marble colums in Venice. You can see the “porta d’acqua”, the front door opening onto the canal.
Ground floor ( no “acqua alta”): small entrance – living/bedroom (2 sofa beds) – living (2 sofa-beds) – kitchen – bathroom with shower – double bedroom.
Accurately renovated and furnished, typical wooden beams in the ceiling, typical Venitian flooring.
Location: Close to St.Mark ( 10 minutes’walk along the lovely seaside “Riva degli Schiavoni” ) , yet in a quiet, distingushed area, still inhabited by Venetians- not too touristy.
Food stores and supermarket in the vicinity.
The Castello district is possibly the oldest in Venice- named after a castle that used to defended the city, where the church of S.Pietro di Castello now stands, it is very typical and still offers insights of the old simple life of the “ Arsenalotti”, the workers who used to build the huge Venetian wooden ships. At the same time, some of the most important monuments are visitable here, like the outstanding S.Zaccaria church, and the famous Pietà, where Vivaldi used to live and have his music performed. The Biennale is housed in part of the old warehouses of the Arsenale, thus being very very near to the apartment.
