This recently restored apartment is located near the Tre Archi bridge in the authentic Venetian district of Cannaregio.   Located on the northwest side of Venice, this neighborhood is home to local Venetians and reflects a characteristic Italian atmosphere.

Located on the first floor of a completely restored ancient palazzo, Barchesse sleeps a maximum of four people and has a small private courtyard.  Here guests can rest and enjoy an “al fresco” meal after a busy day of sightseeing in this most remarkable city.

Check availability

Large groups up to 10 people can be accommodated in Barchesse and the Tre Archi apartment (4 + 2) which is located in another historic palazzo just on the other side of the garden.  In the past this group of houses used to be called “Barchesse” (wings) of a Palazzo of the XVI° Century.

The independent entrance of the apartment is in front of the large sidewalk of the canal.  A forged iron gate leads to a small courtyard belonging to this apartment. The courtyard is furnished with table and chairs and is exclusively for the guests of Barchesse .  The apartment measures 50 sq meters in size and is located on the ground floor.  The living room is comfortably furnished with one sofa (it can be converted into a sofa bed for 2 extra guests), armchairs and TV.  The windows of the living room face the garden of the Tre Archi apartment.  This garden is for guests of the Tre Archi apartment unless the two apartments are rented together by the same group.

The dining area consists of a table for 4 people.  The kitchen area is equipped with a small fridge, oven, toaster, kettle and gas range stove. There is one twin bedroom with two single beds and windows facing the courtyard.  The beds can be put together if desired.  The bathroom contains a bathtub and handheld shower attachment.

Amenities included with the rental are central heating, washing machine, and an iron and ironing board.  A cell phone is available for guest rental but the pre-paid card is not included in the price.  Extra maid service and extra change of linen are available for an additional fee.  The apartment is provided with fans.

The Barchesse apartment is located a few meters from the Fondamenta di Cannaregio, the large sidewalk on the main canal in this part of the city. It is very well connected with San Marco Square and other main points of interest in Venice by ferry.  The ferry stop (called Tre Archi) is located just on the other side of the canal.    Delicious restaurants, bars, food shops, pharmacies and a post office are all within a 5-minute walk from the apartment.  We can highly recommend the “Trattoria Marisa”, on the Fondamenta of Cannaregio, just next to the apartment.  It also has delicious meals also to carry out.

The Santa Lucia train station can be reached within a 10-minute walk or by ferry in 10 munutes.  This line connects guests with the Piazzale Roma.  From the Venice Marco Polo Airport there is a connection by ferry to Fondamenta Nove to reach the Barchesse apartment.  Other points of interest in the area include San Marco, Accademia, and Chiesa della Salute (all only a 15-20 minute walk away).

Not to be missed in Cannaregio:

Church of Santa Maria di Nazareth o dei Carmelitani Scalzi (Barefoot Carmelites) - This church was built in 1660 from a design by Baldassarre Longhena. The grandiose façade was created by Giuseppe Sardi. After an Austrian bomb exploded on 27 October 1915, the frescoed vault by Tiepolo collapsed. Today, only a few fragments remain in the Galleries of the Accademia di Belle Arti. In 1934 the ceiling was replaced, and it was adorned with a fresco by Ettore Tito. The first chapel of the right-hand nave has a vault frescoed by G.B.Tiepolo.

Square and Church of San Geremia - The church houses the relics of Saint Lucy

Palazzo Labia - This palace was built at the end of the seventeenth century by the Labias, a family of rich Catalan merchants. The inside is decorated with frescoes by Tiepolo. It is now headquarters of the Italian State Television.

Church of San Giobbe (1450-70) - This church has a Renaissance portal by Pietro Lombardo. Inside it is decorated with the works of Tuscan artists such as Luca della Robbia.

Jewish Ghetto - The term 'ghetto' derives from the foundries that were found in the area in which the metal was 'gettato' or smelted.  In 1509 it became the part of the city that was reserved for the Jews. They built their 'schole' or synagogues here. the first one was the Schola Tedesca (German Synagogue), which was built in 1528.  It was followed by the Schola Canton and the Schola Italiana. The Schola Spagnola was rebuilt by Baldassarre Longhena.  The German synagogue houses the museum of Jewish art and contains many fine religious exhibits.

Mastelli Palace

Ca' d'Oro - This house was built by Marino Contarini in 1441, who used the best stonemasons of his time. It is considered the most striking example of Venetian Gothic. It has a façade with polychrome marble molding and certain elements were overlaid with gold, which was why it was called the ca' d'Oro. The palace at one point became the property of Baron Giorgio Franchetti who donated it to the State in 1916 and is now a museum, with works by Mantegna, paintings of Tuscan school and a beautiful collection of Renaissance bronzes.

Oratorio dei Crociferi - This is a treasure trove of works by Palma il Giovane depicting the history of the religious order of the Crociferi, which was founded in the thirteenth century and suppressed in the seventeenth century.

Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli - Built around 1482 from a design by Pietro Lombardo.
