What a great place to stay while in Venice. Lorenzo - the owner is the nicest guy. He met us personally after getting off the taxi and walked us back the the place. He gives great recommendations for food, stores and anything else you need...More
We recently returned from a 10 day stay 'Ai Tagliapietra'. This was the 4th time we have stayed with Lorenzo which should say how much we love it.

I have stayed at Ai Tagliapietra on a number of occasions now, the first time being back in 2012 as a very nervous solo traveller, so another review is long overdue. I formed a very favourable impression back then and I am pleased to say...More

A great base if you are on the go and are looking for a clean convenient and comfortable room to rest your head after the a hard days sightseeing. Everything works well and Lorenzo is very helpful with advice and nothing seems too much trouble....More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
