San Marco apartments Venice

San Marco apartments Venice, Venezia, Italy, Sestiere di S. Marco 3155, VE, Veneto, Venice Maps.  It seems incredible, but many are looking for apartments in San Marco, in the most beautiful square in the world and also the most expensive. Well, I can assure you that it is not difficult, indeed from personal experience in my last stay I found at a good price an apartment 300 meters from Piazza San Marco in Venice, and it was the final day of the carnival in Venice, so it is possible to book 1 month before. Venice is not very big, so you can easily reach Piazza San Marco on foot from any location. Many tourists stay on average 3 days, so it is easy to find availability during the week. If I could I would live in Venice all year round, not only because of the places frequented by tourists but because I love every corner of that paradise.
