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.
This 15th century church was not far from our hotel.
It is dedicated to St Zechariah, the father of John the Baptist and the nearest vaporetto stop is San Zaccaria.
They have a flooded crypt which we did not visit. We did not have the appropriate footwear.
This was our favorite place to hang out both days after a long day of sightseeing.Not much place to sit and read atleast in winter months when we went but just a cozy little book shop packed with books.
Professional players, flowless, in the perfect place with the perfect sound containi g wslls, no microphones, u hear what used to be the music 200 years ago, close your eyes and enjoy the magic or open it and enjoy the world
A MUST Visit
By the wsy , 1 full hour of joy for just 25 euros
As a family of three (dad and two teenage children) we visited for a special treat on Christmas Day. The decor, ambience, staff and quality of food were all absolutely top notch. The set menu was 85 euros pp which was very reasonable on Christmas Day for a restaurant of this calibre. I had the matched wine with each course...
We had an early lunch here as it is near our hotel. We both had a savory crepe and was planning on getting the sweet one for dessert but the portions were so generous we did not have space for dessert. The crepe was delicious and would definitely recommend.
"Made my parents 45th wedding anniversary trip the absolute best holiday they've ever been on!"

I have been meaning to write this review for over two years! (oops!) But better late than never I hope. I cannot express just how impressed we were with all the team at the Hotel Ai Cavalieri for making my parents special anniversary trip exceed all expectations! This was a surprise gift for my parents (who are in their now...
I had a hard time choosing hotel in Venice as I’m not into old gothic Venetian style rooms. So when I chanced upon this relatively new (3 yo) modern-style spacious room (rare find in Venice), I knew i had to book it. The staff was very responsive via emails. Alicia in particular attended v well to our needs. Breakfast was...
Beautiful suite and perfect location, close to Plaza San Marcos. Very spacious. Excellent concierge service. Nice view of the canal with gondolas cruising along. We love Venice overall and this property was another factor to make our trip unforgettable.
We visited in early December and it met our needs in every respect. We will happily recommend to our friends. The location is excellent, very convenient for the vaporetto and St Mark's, great choice at breakfast, quiet, good bed and spacious room, very helpful staff. What more can I say!
We had a 3rd floor room overlooking the lagoon. The view was spectacular, the bed was super comfortable with quality linens, the bathroom was clean and shiny with great products.
The breakfast was the best part of the stay. The breakfast room is elegant, bright, and overlooks the lagoon. So relaxing to sip a macchiato or prosecco (yes, they have...
