We added this to our Venezia Unica pass. It was a little confusing. You get your ticket in the bookstore which is in the back of the building. If there is no one at the door just keep wandering. It is not very well signposted....More

Venice wears its history and historical power on its sleeve. So much of the public art is about politics and power. If you want to know where the rich and powerful over the centuries went home to kick back, relax and chill with the family,...More

I always loved to come here for a drink and a bite. But they raised the prices to almost double. Shame, another one falls of my list of good places.

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

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
