A cozy apartment with the charm of history
Have you ever imagined to stay in a tenth century church? This could be your one chance to try such an exciting experience!
This cozy apartment is part of the old church of San Stin, partially demolished by Napoleon in 1810 and then converted in apartments during the first half of the nineteenth century. More precisely, the apartment is located on the ground floor in the apse of the church whose semicircular structure is clearly visible both from outside and inside the building.
The recent preservative restoration has brought to light more ancient details like the beautiful ceiling supporting arch. Definitely a unique place!
Awesome neighbourhood with local restaurants, typical shops and markets, 10 minutes walking from train/bus station with direct connections to and from Venice airport Marco Polo (VCE) and Treviso airport (TFS).
