My wife and I stayed at Hotel Palazzo Vitturi on the last leg of a two week trip across quite a lot of Italy and we were not disappointed with our choice. Due to some rental car issues we added one extra day before our...More
Great location, 5 - 10 mins leisurely walk to main attractions (St Pete's , Rialto, meeting pointsfor tours). Very comfotable bed to back to, powerful shower (it did take a couple of mins to warm up on occasions) and a more than adequate breakfast. All...More
Great family weekend, had luck with the weather, but mostly also with the choice of hotel. It is literally 5min from San Marco square, with extra kind staff and you will get breakfast served while enjoying the view of nice square...Great one, would highly recommend...More
Had a balcony room in this friendly little hotel in a nice quiet square. The twin balconies overlooked the Campo Santa Maria Formosa, which is relatively quiet itself but less than ten minutes walk from many of the main tourist areas and many of the...More
Great location and the breakfast is very good. Most important the front desk staff is super friendly and helpful. We arrived early and they were able to store our luggage and notify us as soon as our room was ready. Nightly recommend them.
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.

You will definitely want to take a water taxi. Walking would be unthinkable with luggage. We stayed at the hotel after a cruise as well. It should be about 70-90 Euros, but well worth it as the drop off will be right next to... More
You will definitely want to take a water taxi. Walking would be unthinkable with luggage. We stayed at the hotel after a cruise as well. It should be about 70-90 Euros, but well worth it as the drop off will be right next to the hotel - the driver will know, and you will get a short canal tour!
