We bought a drink from the fridge and there are plenty of seats around but we are not even allowed to sit there when the board outside no service and no cover charge is required... Cashier is particularly rude to us too

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
