We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and were pleasantly surprised to be left a bottle of bubbly in our room. Service was excellent with charming staff at the front desk. Room was fine with good shower and breakfast was taken upstairs in small room...More
Wonderful location near St Mark's Square and friendly staff. Very steep stairs to bedrooms. Spotlessly clean. Very let done by the awful breakfast of dry processed bread, no fruit, to the point that we gave up and bought our breakfasts in one of the cafes...More
Friends and I have just returned from a magical visit to Venice. Our stay at Locanda Al Leon was perfect in every way. The location; just behind San Marco and a short stroll from Vaporetto stop San Zaccaria, right in the heart of Venice. With...More
This is a wonderfully situated lovely little bed and breakfast. While the rooms are small, they are clean and lovely. The location cannot be better. It is close to Saint Mark's, but more important, close to the San Zachariah vaporetto stop, which gets you everywhere....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.
