it took us an hour to find the place - we made the epic mistake of thinking we could find it ourselves from the ferry stop. It is best to take the directions from st marks square as it only takes less than 10 minutes...More
Riccardo is a true pro at playing host- he knows how to be there for you but not be intrusive. His gorgeous B&B was perfect for our family vacation. Campo Campana is located close to St Mark's & is therefore easy to get to vaporettos...More
Aside from being a hop, skip and a jump from St Mark's square, this was a lovely place to stay thanks to Ric's wonderful hospitality. He made us feel very welcome even though we arrived at an ungodly hour of night and every morning was...More
Ricardo was booked out but told us he had an apartment he could rent to us. On reading his website it was true that there was a review that was written about a large apartment so we thought that sounded good. It was actually rented...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.
