Our home

The apartment is located in the center of Venice-Lido, a 90 m2, elegant, bright, and comfortable lived-in home. Recently renovated, it is clean and neat, and located on the 4th floor (top floor) of a condominium building, with elevator. The apartment is composed of 3 bedrooms (1x double bed, 2x single beds), 2 bathrooms (w/washing machine), a live-in kitchen, combined living/dining room, w/TV, radio, etc., and terrace. The apartment is air conditioned and very well kept, and we are looking for people who take equally well care of it. People feel comfortable here and I hope you will, too. Being situated in a quiet and green neighborhood and within walking distance from the beach and 20 minutes from the center of Venice (a 15-minute stunning boat ride), the apartment is ideal for cultural explorations as well as relaxation.

We are looking for an exchange with 2, at the most 3 persons, non-smokers. Since this is our second home, we are open to a non-simultaneous exchange. We are looking for an exchange approx. June 15-July 15, 2006. Starting January 2007, we are flexible as to dates and length of time.

Who we are

  1. We are 2 people. Paolo grew up in Venice. He is a professor at Montclair State University in New Jersey, USA, where he teaches Italian language and literature. Verena is from Zurich/Switzerland, and retired. We have been living in the United States for over 30 years, mainly in Manhattan. We are non-smokers, neat and clean, and well experienced in exchanges.

    We love to travel and greatly enjoy exploring cities and cultures. We are interested in learning about countries and people. We enjoy visiting museums, galleries, classical music, theater, etc. We equally enjoy meeting the locals, exploring foods, shops, and all the exiting things a city has to offer.

    Our first choices are Vienna, London and Paris, but we are open to any major European city! Surprise us!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The Lido is a 12 km long island in front of Venice, situated between the Lagoon and the Adriatic Sea. The apartment is very close to excellent food shopping and restaurants. Everything is within reach: the beach, Piazza S. Marco (the center of Venice), and the lagoon.

Venice is full of artistic treasures: churches, palaces, museums, etc. There are no cars. One can easily walk to everywhere within the city, exploring romantic surroundings, cultural centers, historical memories, modern and traditional art and music, famous restaurants, delicious gelaterie and pizzerie, open-air food markets, fashion stores, jewelry stores, etc. When tired of walking, one can always try a gondola for a different experience.

The fascinating historical islands of Torcello, Burano, and Murano, can easily be reached via a beautiful boat ride starting out from the Lido. The historical town of Chioggia at the far end of the Lagoon is reachable by boat and bus. Cars are parked for free on all streets of the Lido. Ferry boats connect the Lido to the Mainland.
