Our trip to Venezia was amazing and mainly because of our stay here as the owners are lovely people! Riccardo and Grace were so warm and helpful! They helped plan our days and mapped it all out for any and everything we needed! Our room...More
Great location, steps from all the sights and good restaurants. Our family of four stayed in the brothers room - comfortable beds for everyone, good a/c, nice breakfast - but the best part of our stay here was our hosts! Ric and Grace were not...More
We arrived to a warm greeting from the owners; husband has deep family roots in Venice and wife is from USA, so English was great! We traveled with children and a friend so we appreciated the flexibility in bedding accommodations. I would definitely stay here...More
Excellent location, accommodations and hosts. Our room was large, clean and had comfortable bedding. There was WiFi and air conditioning. Ricardo and Grace were caring and provided great suggestions on places to go. Kudos to our hosts who could not have been nicer, or more...More
There's an abundance of reviews here and they're all spot on. Grace and Riccardo are genuine and amazingly helpful. Their stories, help with navigating the city, and overall attitudes really felt more like visiting lost friends rather than lodging hosts. The rooms are beautifully historic...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.
