The Best Venice Airbnbs

No question, there are a lot of tourists in Venice, Italy. It’s a small city, with narrow canals as walkways and even narrower alleys. So at the end of the day, it might be nice to have your own apartment and stay at the best Airbnb in Venice, rather than coming back to a hotel (although if you are looking for hotels, I’d recommend Hotel Danieli Venezia).

There actually aren’t tons of centrally-located Venice Airbnbs available, so it wasn’t too hard to narrow down this list of top Venice Airbnbs. I found some really cute Venice apartments with terraces and canal views, and many of these spots are Airbnb Plus status, (meaning someone from Airbnb has personally checked out the apartment in person to make sure it’s top notch), so you know they’re some of the best Airbnbs in Venice. *All photos in this post are from Airbnb and belong to the Airbnb owners.

Best Venice Airbnbs

1. Elegant Canal-Side Apartment

Venice Airbnbs

This Venetian apartment is absolutely beautiful! So crisp and clean with elegant decor. It’s right alongside a canal, for that true Venetian experience, and is located in the San Marco neighborhood, just steps away from the main sights at Piazza San Marco. Inside you’ll find several windows looking out over a busy canal. It’s a great home base given its convenient location near the historic center, as well as restaurants, cafes, and churches.

The apartment is very spacious and even has a jacuzzi in the bathroom (which is almost unheard of in European apartments). You’ll also happily find AC here, which is helpful during the hot summer months. The host will meet you at the dock when you arrive by water taxi (it takes about a half hour from Marco Polo airport), and given its spot right by the water, you won’t have to lug your baggage all over Venice.

And to top it all off, this is an Airbnb Plus accommodation, so you know that it’s approved by Airbnb.

Up to 4 guests // 1 bedroom // 1 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $197 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

2. Apartment Close to Rialto

Venice Airbnbs

Just a ten minute walk from the Rialto bridge, this Venice Airbnb is in the heart of Venice, but pleasantly located in a quiet neighborhood, right alongside a small canal. This area is a great jumping off point for sightseeing in Venice. The host will meet you at the boat taxi station to lead you to the apartment.

Once there, you’ll be greeted with beautiful decor and period furniture that contribute to a baroque aesthetic. Note that this apartment does not have air conditioning, so if you’re traveling in the dead of summer this might not be the best pick for you. You’ll also be close to the Rialto Market, where locals shop for fresh produce, seafood, and meats—you can act like a Venetian and pick up fresh ingredients for dinner back at your place.

Up to 5 guests // 3 bedroom // 3 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $157 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

3. Cozy Santa Croce Retreat

Venice Airbnbs Venice Airbnbs

This top-floor modern Venetian apartment is filled with furniture and ornaments from local artisans and Murano glass factories. Take your breakfast up to the roof terrace for sunny, panoramic views of the surrounding bell towers. Or enjoy a glass of vino on the terrace while taking in the incredible views of the city in the evening.

This spot is tucked away on a quiet street in San Polo, close to all the action but away from all the tourists. You’ll appreciate all of the thoughtful touches and amenities throughout the apartment that make the stay that much more comfortable (AC, hair dryer, laundry machine, and even a crib).

Up to 2 guests // 2 bedroom // 2 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $167 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

4. Cozy apartment near Rialto Bridge

Venice Airbnbs

To be honest, the decor at this apartment isn’t going to blow anybody away. But it makes the list because it’s in a great location and has an adorable rooftop terrace, all at a very reasonable price point! And it’s another Airbnb Plus apartment. So really, this spot is a gem, especially if you’re looking for a Venice apartment with a terrace.

Just a few minutes walk from Rialto Bridge and the market, but not so close that you’re surrounded by people. Imagine strolling down to the Rialto Market to pick up things for breakfast, and then enjoying your coffee and brekky on that gorgeous little terrace. Ciao, bella!

Up to 3 guests // 1 bedroom // 1 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $133 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

5. Romantic Apartment along the Canal

Venice Airbnbs Venice Airbnbs

Well how stinkin’ cute is this place? I love the clean, crisp aesthetic, and the high ceilings with wood beams. This Venice Airbnb is located between Campo San Giacomo and Campo San Polo, at the foot of the Storto Bridge.

The area is central, but peaceful. And it has a beautiful terrace overlooking one of the canals, where you can sit and watch the gondolas go by. Does it get any more Venetian than that? You can easily walk to a lot of Venice’s top sights, and if you’re itching to explore other islands there’s a Vaporetto (ferry) stop close by.

Up to 2 guests // 1 bedroom // 1 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $135 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

6. Apartment on the Grand Canal

Venice Airbnbs Venice Airbnbs

Okayyyy this apartment is probably my favorite out of the entire list. It’s a bit of a splurge, but it would be perfect for two couples or a family of four. And if you’re looking for an Airbnb in Venice Italy with canal views, you really can’t beat this one. 

It is right along the Canal Grande, and it even has a balcony overlooking the Grand Canal. I mean, how beautiful! People pay a lot of money for those kinds of views at restaurants in Venice, and you can have your own private balcony—all you need is a bottle of wine. As far as Grand Canal terrace apartments in Venice go, this is pretty premium.

Given the location, you’ll be in walking distance to everything. There is a water taxi station very close to the apartment, making arrival and departure a breeze.

Up to 4 guests // 2 bedroom // 2 bed // 2 bath. Prices from $432 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

7. Apartment in Historic Palace in San Marco

Venice Airbnbs Venice Airbnbs

This apartment in San Marco is so luxurious and stunning! I love the romantic vibes, the fireplace in the bedroom, and how cute is that pink room??

Being in San Marco, it’s in the most central neighborhood in Venice. There’s a cute balcony patio as well. Enjoy AC in every room (comes in clutch during the summer), and being on a quiet street.

The apartment overlooks a quiet square and is close to the Grand Canal. Truly, what more could you want?

Up to 2 guests // 2 bedroom // 2 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $167 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

8. Residence at Canal Grande

Venice Airbnbs

This beautiful Venetian flat has two spacious bedrooms and is classically decorated. It’d be perfect for a family of four.

This apartment in a quiet area, but close to lots of restaurant and bar options, and easily walkable to Venice’s sights. The Rialto Bridge is just a few minutes walk away.

Comfy beds, central location, and AC throughout—perfect! The private roof terrace is the perfect spot to unwind after a long day of sightseeing. And it’s only ~7 minutes from the Santa Lucia train station, making for an easy arrival and departure.

Up to 4 guests // 2 bedroom // 2 bed // 1 bath. Prices from $190 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

9. House in the Heart of Venice

Venice Airbnbs

This house is so charming and eclectic, with a loft bedroom and its own private terrace. The house is in the very center of the city, and is completely open with high ceilings and big windows.

The house is situated on Campo San Polo, which is less touristy than San Marco (although Piazza San Marco is not far), and gives more of an authentic Venetian experience. There are plenty of great, local restaurants nearby, and all of Venice’s sights are easily walkable from here. The kitchen is very small, so if you want to do lots of cooking this might not be an ideal spot for you.

Up to 4 guests // 2 bedroom // 2 bed // 2 bath. Prices from $145 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

10. Unique Apartment on Canal

Venice Airbnbs Venice Airbnbs

How cool is this apartment with kitchen window views that look right out onto a canal?? Gondoliers expertly pass by within arms reach, and you can sit at the kitchen table with your morning coffee and watch them pass by.

This apartment is located in the ground floor of a former Venetian Palace, centrally located just steps away from St. Mark’s Square. It’s tucked away from the tourist hustle and bustle, but close enough to walk to the main sights in minutes.

Up to 5 guests // 2 bedroom // 2 bed // 2 bath. Prices from $337 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

11. Pretty Venetian Apartment with Terrace

Venice Airbnbs Venice Airbnbs

This pretty and pastel apartment is three beds, three baths, making it perfect for a small group of friends. The Italian styling furnishings and decor make it very charming and comfortable. The apartment has a beautiful outdoor terrace overlooking the surrounding rooftops.

As far as location goes, it doesn’t get much more central than San Marco.

Up to 6 guests // 3 bedroom // 4 bed // 3 bath. Prices from $476 per night. Check pricing and dates here.

That concludes my list of the top Airbnbs in Venice Italy! Send me a pic of you drinking wine from your Grand Canal terrace apartment in Venice if you book one!
