In a city where it is hard to find a good beer, we were pleasantly surprised in Birreria Forst. Although the beer menu is relatively modest, it is better than most places in Venice. And their own beer Forst Sixtus, a dark abbey beer, Is...More

This is a great place to hang out. Sandwiches are very good and inexpensive. The people that work there are fun and polite.

Nice place to take a good beer or lunch after visiting the St. Mark's square. They had bowls of roasted peanuts on the table. Frequented by the locals and gondoliers. A very friendly service!

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

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

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
