The Lion’s House Apartment – Lion 4
The Lion's House Apartment - Lion 4: Altana terrace and elevator at Rialto, in the heart of Venice
A modern apartment with elevator, only a few steps from the Rialto Bridge.
This is one of a set of 4 apartments in the same building and can be rented in combination with the others so as to allow large families or groups to stay together but also in separate units. This two-floor apartment located on the fourth floor is the largest of the 4 in the building, and consists of: 1 double bedroom, 1 bathroom with shower cabin, 1 smaller bathroom with WC, a modern fully-equipped kitchen with table for 6, and a living room with large sectional sofa. The upper floor of the house presents an attic room with another double bed and access to the top altana, a typical Venetian terrace with a view on the city’s rooftops. The house is decorated with modern taste while also maintaining traditional elements like the exposed wooden beams, which are typical of Venetian houses.
The apartment is located in a very lively area, as it is between Rialto and San Marco, yet it is quiet and isolated from the outside busy street. From here, you can reach the Rialto Bridge and its nearby open daily markets with a 5-minute walk.
The area of San Lio is strategic to reach the city’s top landmarks: the Rialto Bridge and its markets, San Marco and its historical monuments, and Fondamenta Nove with its many waterbus stops connecting you to the islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello. This area also presents many supermarkets, shops, cafes, and all types of restaurant.
The closest waterbus stop is Rialto, at the foot of the iconic bridge, for easy and quick connections to all main attractions via the Grand Canal.
There are possible discounts for large families or groups that are interested in renting out more than one apartment in the same building.

Venice has six districts, known as “sestieri.” Castello is the most populated and most popular district of the city of Venice. Among the most fascinating areas there is Via Garibaldi, with its many shops, bars, and restaurants that open onto the street. From here, you can experience the daily life of the many residents who meet up here to chat and shop. Nearby is the monumental Venetian Arsenal, where the boats and ships of the Republic of Venice were built. Today, it is a magnificent space in which the Venice Biennale hosts some of its art and architecture exhibitions. Walking toward Sant’Elena, you cross the Giardini della Biennale, the other Biennale exhibition center. The Giardini open onto the largest green area of the city: the Park of Sant’Elena.
Making your way toward San Marco, you step onto Riva degli Schiavoni, which leads you to Ponte della Paglia. From here, you can see the splendid Bridge of Sighs and can quickly reach Piazza San Marco, which is just around the corner.
