Your Venetian Garden Home


Corina’s Venice apartment is located in a quiet area of Cannaregio, near the Madonna dell’Orto church, Tintoretto’s neighborhood; and the campo dei Mori, with one of the best eateries in town, the Osteria Orto dei Mori. The nearby Madonna dell’Orto vaporetto stop has waterbuses to everywhere (Piazzale Roma and the train station, Lido, Murano with connections to Burano and San Marco, including the airport (Alilaguna will take you there in 20 minutes, direct).

One street down you’ll find more recommendable eateries and cafes, a grocery store, and other shops; the next street over is a main thoroughfare to everywhere, and to another handy Grand Canal waterbus at San Marcuola.
