About our home

Located on the top floor of an 18th-century building in the Jewish ghetto, the apartment has an independent entrance (quite rare in Venice) and has been fully renovated in 2010 in shabby-chic interior design style. The apartment features the typical characteristics of Jewish houses in Venice such as low ceilings and awkwardly shaped spaces.

Where is it?


Our design apartment is located in the historical centre of Venice in the district of Cannaregio, the norther portion of Venice that has grown into an inconspicuously energetic central neighborhood. The apartment is a few steps away from the boat stop Ponte Guglie, close to the new and old Jewish Ghetto of Venice. From here Saint Mark’s square is reachable by walking or by boat. Today a quiet, crumbling corner of a sinking city, Cannaregio was once a microcosm of Venice itself, a tapestry woven of many nations, pasts, traditions and languages. The most enduring evidence of the cosmopolitan universe that used to exist here are the five synagogues that today lie hidden behind the nondescript facades of apartment buildings where a few families actually still live: small jewel boxes that quietly preserve an enchanting global artistry.
