We booked a three-day at this small pension in the Castello district. It was easy to find from the San Zaccaria water bus stop, straight from the airport -- this way you avoid having to pass through the madness of San Marco. When we reached...More
I booked this reservation through Expedia and it was confirmed. The hotel then emailed me for my credit card information which I thought strange as it's a postpay, but I emailed it to them-no word. So a week later I emailed them just to confirm...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.
