Residence La Fenice is located in front of the Teatro La Fenice with skilfully furnished apartments and rooms to relive the charm of the most authentic Venice. The residence looks out onto Campo San Fantin, a typical Venetian square 5 minutes from Piazza San Marco, 7 minutes on foot from the Rialto Bridge and 10 minutes from the San Marco Vallaresso vaporetto (waterbus) stop.
In this way, our guests can experience Venice with great ease: we are close to the main tourist attractions and shops, but far from the chaos of the busiest alleys.
Defined “The finest drawing room in Europe” by Napoleon Bonaparte, Piazza San Marco boasts unique artistic, historical and cultural treasures. It is the only true square in Venice where people from all over the world meet to admire its Basilica, the Bell Tower, the Doge's Palace and the Museo Correr. An engaging experience that will take you back in time to a place filled with mysteries and hidden treasures.
Just like the famous mythological animal, the Phoenix, the Teatro La Fenice has arisen from its ashes and come back to life twice since its inauguration in 1792. A fascinating place, with a wealth of history inside it, where numerous opera premières have taken place, such as those by Rossini, Verdi and Stravinsky. Attending a theatrical performance means travelling back in time and taking pleasure in a unique artistic and cultural experience.
The Gondolas, one of the most iconic symbols of the city of Venice, have been parading along the city's canals since the Middle Ages, bringing a centuries-old tradition back to life. The magic happens in the famous Squeri, places where all Gondolas are created and where the Venetian master carpenters attribute a symbolic and unique meaning to every detail.
“Among the various sounds, the voice of the gondolier is the dominant note in Venice. There are no noises here, apart from those produced by man, no screeching of wheels or clunking of hooves. Everything is vocalised, personal. It can be strongly affirmed that Venice is the city of conversation”
Henry James, 1882
