An Apartment in Venice

Photo tour

The entrance foyer has two arched brick doorways: one to the living room (left), and another to the bedroom. The foyer itself has a chest of a drawers and a closet (not shown) with cleaning supplies.

Inside the closet is a metal panel that drops into place by the front door to minimize flooding during  acqua alta or "high water," which can occur in the late fall and winter months. Most such tides won't reach the apartment, but if you're really worried about getting your feet wet, look for upstairs apartments and townhouse suites at Venere: Venice.

Update: During another visit to the neighborhood, I checked street outside the apartment during an acqua alta flood when the Piazza San Marco was at least 15 cm or 6 inches deep in water, and both the street and the nearby Campo Santa Maria Formosa were dry.
