A Taste of Venice: meet our partners ViewsOnVenice
A Taste of Venice Food & Travel Blog tour, and the blog magazine which was created following the event, had the aim to promote a different and more interesting way “to live” Venice– I like to stress the word live and not visit, because this city has enough visitors and tourists who just spend 1 or 2 nights here bringing back home as memories only the large crowds and the expensive shops.
Experience the Real Venice
Venice needs curious interested “explorers”, people who want to live the city and experience Venice like local residents do. Therefore also the type of accommodation which is chosen can makes a huge difference in the overall impression which these “explorers” will take back with them!
“Our aim was to offer these apartments, as well as those of friends, for rental to an international clientele who’d take pleasure in the comfort, freedom and authenticity of ‘living at home as a Venetian’ rather than merely observing the city from the confines of an anonymous hotel room or suite.
The common denominator then, as now, was to offer ‘something extra’ amidst an already extraordinary city – an added dimension which turns a ‘stay’ into an ‘experience’ and a ‘dream’ into ‘reality’…”
In our mission to introduce our sponsors to our readers, we asked Filippo a few questions to explain who and what ViewsOnVenice is.
Introduce yourself to our readers: who is your company and what does it do?
The company is named ViewsOnVenice and we own and manage charming properties for short term rentals, unfortunately you did not have a chance to view our new line of dedicated apartments especially designed by our Tuscan interior designed Arch Florence, here are some examples:
New apartments will be coming up in the next months.

What do you love the most about Venice?
Tough question as there is so much to love in Venice, I personally love the Rialto fruit and fish market, the winter time when finally the city is quiet and peaceful, the food, no cars and a long list to be continued!
What would you change in Venice?
Long list here too! I would like to see the ships out of the city, no large groups with guide, fake Murano glass shops, more police.
During the blog tour our bloggers stayed in Ca’ Dello Squero 1 and Ca’ Dello Squero 2, two lovely apartments in Zattere, with gorgeous views of one of the few gondola maker worshops left in Venice. Only a stone through from Nico’s, one of the best ice cream parlours in Venice, and from Punta Della Dogana, the modern art exhibition.
Gondole in San Trovaso
As explained by Filippo, ViewsOnVenice offers a large range of accommodation in Venice for short stay rental.
