We would like to share with our guests our passion and enthusiasm by living in our house. This is way in which we look after every detail of the rooms and of the services we offer, because we want to give an unforgettable but comfortable and homely experience.

Aria e Luce is a detached building on two floors, with a private entrance. On the first floor there are the three rooms (Scirocco, Zéfiro and Crepuscolo), the bathrooms, one shared between the rooms Scirocco and Zefiro, and one en-suite for the room Crepuscolo, and the breakfast area. At the second floor there’s the independent apartment Mattino, with its own kitchen and a cozy terrace. All the spaces are equipped an air conditioner. Regardless all three of the rooms and the apartment are cool and insulated, quiet and soundproof. Here you will sleep soundly!
* GUEST INTERACTION
Arianna, my partner, and I will be here to greet you, prepare your breakfasts and suggest the best things for you to do and see during your stay in Venice, including; cultural events, typical restaurants and “osterie” and make sure your stay is enjoyable in our beautiful city.
* NEIGHBORHOOD OVERVIEW
Santa Maria Formosa, the campo (square) close to our B&B Aria e Luce, is one of the oldest in Venice, located here is the Querini Stampalia Foundation and of the marvellous church built by Jacopo Sansovino. We are located at the very beginning of Castello, the most “Venetian” sestiere (neighbourhood) of Venice, populated by many local residents, but just a few minutes’ walk from Piazza San Marco, Riva degli Schiavoni and Rialto. In the area there are still many traditional workshops, typical bars and "osterie" (small restaurants), as well as many other services (vaporetto ferry stops, supermarkets, essential shops and the Civil Hospital too). You will be surrounded by Venetian art and architecture, but not overwhelmed by crowds of tourists!
* GETTING AROUND
Less than ten minutes’ walk away there are two main vaporetto (ferry) stops: Rialto and San Zaccaria. From Rialto you can easily reach the Railway Station or Piazzale Roma (the last stop for cars and buses on the island of Venice) in 15/20 minutes, whereas from the San Zaccaria stop all ferry lines pass, either along the Canal Grande (nr. 1 and 2) or the circular lines of Venice and to Lagoon Islands and Lido. So we are located in a perfect and easy position to be reached from the mainland and to visit the Venetian Lagoon. Regardless we will provide you the quickest and most accurate directions to reach us, whether you arrive by car, train or airplane.
* OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
-> We recommend that you DO NOT TRAVEL to Venice WITH VERY HEAVY OR AWKWARD LUGGAGE, as it can be tiring and difficult carrying them over bridges, through the narrow Venice streets and on busy ferries.
