Buy a house in venice italy: here's where to find interesting real estate opportunities

Let's find out the Castello, Giudecca and Santa Croce districts and how much to spend to win an enchanting prestigious property in these areas.

If Venice is still the Italian city that the whole world envies us, there will be a good reason.
It is here in fact that couples fall in love, enjoying a well-deserved Gondola ride. It is here that you stroll through the city streets, forgetting about the horns and car engines. It is here that romantics and dreamers want to live, for this reason they seek the opportunity not to be missed among the houses for sale Venice.

In the previous article, we discovered how much houses in Venice cost within the 4 most sought-after districts of the Lagoon, namely Dorsoduro, San Polo, San Marco and Cannaregio.

There are still 3 districts to tell and unexpected places that will make you fall in love. Here then is how much it costs to buy house venice canals in these districts.


We start from the Castello district, the largest in the city because it is well connected to both the San Marco and Cannaregio districts. Here, those looking for interesting real estate opportunities can find housing tailored to their needs. The area around Viale Garibaldi is the most sought after, thanks to its proximity to the Biennale, the large green spaces and the tranquility of the area.

Here we find the properties for sale located on the Riva dei Sette Martiri, where prices are around 3,700-5,200 € / m2. But don't worry, there is also room for those who want to spend less, with the guarantee of buying a quality property, in full Venetian style.

For those who prefer peace and tranquility, the Giudecca island is ideal for buying a house in Venice. The views are breathtaking, the churches full of charm and the numerous and unmissable houses for sale. Three excellent reasons that push, especially foreign buyers, to quickly conclude real estate deals. The prices per square meter to win a splendid apartment or a pied-a-tere range from 3,500 to 5,000 Euros.

Unexpected opportunities are also hidden in the Santa Croce area, probably because during the twentieth century it suffered, more than the other districts, the impact of the road link between Venice and the mainland. A disadvantage for someone, an advantage for all those who appreciate being close to transportation. To buy houses in this area you must agree to spend between € 3,600 and € 4,600 / m2. But there are those who choose to pay even € 8,200 / sqm for the most exclusive properties overlooking the Grand Canal.

Buy a house in venice italy: LIDO, MURANO AND BURANO

Now that we have discovered how much it costs to buy a house in one of the main Venetian districts, we are moving our horizons towards less traveled but equally fascinating places.

Like the Lido of Venice, the thin island that stretches for about 1 km between the lagoon and the Adriatic Sea and is connected to the city only by water transport. Here, house prices stand at around € 3,000-3,800 / m2 and are highly popular with Austrian and German buyers.

The location that Murano Island gives us is also a beautiful location, appreciated for its tranquility and for its centuries-old craftsmanship activity that has allowed it to be known all over the world. The prices of the area vary from 2,200 to 3,700 € / m2.

Burano wins above all, known for its characteristic colored houses but also for the hidden landscapes of the Northern Lagoon. Buying a house in Burano is relatively simple. Prices range from 1,800 to 3,300 € / m2. For some they might even call themselves "a real deal".
