If you along Riva degli Schiavoni (which turns into Riva something) after crossing a few small canal bridges you will see an unusually wide street. This is Via Garibaldi which is a part of a canal filled in back in the 19th century (if you walk to the very end of it you will see the remaining part of the... More

Piazza San Marco is certainly magnificent, but it's also generally jam-packed, so we now head to some of the quieter areas for a more relaxed, neighborhood feel, and Via Giuseppe Garibaldi fits the bill. It's a broad, straight thoroughfare with a number of restaurants and shops, including a Coop supermarket. We've enjoyed meals at three different establishments here in the... More

Treviso by itself is a beautiful town and the walk all around the Garibaldi river is worth it. Honestly it's a better experience than Venice with lovely trees n less people. There are a few cafe's along it where one could relax and sip over a drink.

Nice area that offers all the wine bars and cicchetti you could ask for without the cruise ship crowd found in other parts of Venice.

Via Garibaldi in the heart of Castello district is the best place to go to to escape the madding crowd. Only a few tourists venture that far away from St Mark's Square though it does have some good restaurants and the excellent Snack Bar Castello which is the ideal place for a lunchtime snack or an evening drink. Here you... More

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
