So I've always wanted to rent an apartment in Venice. Ideally, I wanted to do this with Chris along but because of a previously scheduled trip to Orlando (one last Disney/Universal vacation with the girls), he can't accompany me in October. So, on my own, I zeroed in on several non-luxurious studios about Venice (I excluded ones towards Arsenale; they felt too removed for me). Anyway, after finding one that was pretty darn basic for about €400 for 5 nights, I mentioned to Chris how there were nicer ones for a bit more money but because I didn't want to spend a lot, I'd probably go with an eh-eh one. Being a mench, he told me to spend a little more and get something I liked. Who am I to argue?
Still not luxurious (in that I'm not sure about the futon/sofa bed thing), but the rest of the apartment still looks pretty good - and I love the little patio on which I envision me having morning coffee, or if the wireless reaches, getting some work done before venturing out. Plus, added bonus, this apartment is probably within a three-minute walk of Shannon's place. I've never stayed in Cannaregio, so I'm looking forward to that too.
Without further ado, my Venice Apartment.
