I live alone in this recently updated apartment with 2 bedrooms and I would like to rent one of the rooms to tourists. This accommodation is perfect for those who are looking to experience Venice, but also get a feel for the local life and discover the less touristic villages of Italy.
The apartment is in Mira, a small village on the 'Riviera del Brenta'. The Riviera is very famous in this region because it was the old connection between Venice and Padova. Along the Riviera there are numerous villages and you can see all the antique Venetian villas, which for the majority are now touristic attractions and are open all year round.
Mira is 15 km away from Venice and 25 km from Padova. It's a perfect place to stay to visit both towns because it's very well connected by train, bus or even boat.
By train it takes just 15 minutes to arrive to Venice or 20 minutes to arrive to Padova; by bus it's a bit longer, but there are many buses every day.
Thanks to the Burchiello Boat Service on the Riviera del Brenta you can enjoy a relaxing trip by boat to Padova, Venice or even to some of the islands of the Venetian lagoon. You can also choose to go to Pellestrina, the island that divides the sea from the lagoon (here you can enjoy the best beach in Venice!)
