My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Corte Campana for several reasons: first, you can't beat the location -- being a 5-minute walk from St. Mark's Square was wonderful (we're walkers and could get to everywhere we wanted by foot); second, the place...More
We liked Corte Campana a lot. The location can't be beat--just a short way from St. Mark's Square. The place was quiet and comfortable, and Riccardo was very friendly and helpful. We were out sightseeing all day the days we were there, so did not...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.
