We had a great experience staying at the Locanda al Leon for two nights in Venice. It is a small hotel owned by a lovely couple in a 500 year old historic building. The location is excellent - it is located right next to many...More
I loved this hotel. I will tell you now... many steep stairs, but you'll need the workout for how much walking you do in Italy. The room was comfortable and the staff was wonderful. I loved the tiny breakfast room, so different from the US...More
Very clean just very small. They didn't have the air conditioning on. The staff acted like we were bothering them whenever we would ask them anything. You could open the windows but there were no screens and big mosquitos would come.

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.

There are no cars at all on the Venice islands, just many people on foot! Water taxi is probably your best bet. Less expensive and nearly as good is the Water Bus (Vaporetto) Google Venice Airport Water Bus
