One of those places found when wandering 'off the beaten track' - well by Venice standards anyway! No matter where you go in Venice you're never far from packs of tourists but this park (the monument is at the entrance to a lovely park) is...More
The monument is in a pleasant park, away from the bustle of tourist-filled Venice, and is in itself quite a pleasing work. But what I thought were stone turtles at the foot of the statue (leaving me wondering what the story of Garibaldi and the...More
I wouldn't go out of my way to see the monument, however it is located in a park that provides a bit of peace and quiet from the main hoards of tourists. Quiet a nice area that leads to more quiet streets (real streets where...More

Viale Giuseppe Garibaldi is a very unusual street in an unlikely place! The city of canals actually has a handful of "real streets", and this is possibly the biggest. One of the more interesting sights here is Giuseppe Garibaldi's bronze statue in amongst greenery and...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.
