I happened to know about this B&B when I read Frommer's easy guide to Venice. All the reviews here in Tripadvisor are real. It is a good base to explore Venice with its proximity to St. Mark's square and other tourist spots. It's easy to get lost in Venice with its confusing layout. Lorenzo is very helpful in giving us...

Amazing stay in Venice. This B&B was beautiful, clean, and convenient. But what put it over the top was Lorenzo. He was very helpful in making dinner reservations and recommending little places to eat. He was also helpful in providing directions on a map for our daily activities. Venice is NOT an easy place to find things so Lorenzo's help... More

What an amazing place to stay - location is perfect, well appointed rooms, super clean and all at an affordable price. And of course the main asset of this place is the owner Lorenzo. He met us early morning when it was pouring rain and let us keep the bags until the room was ready. Lorenzo was also very helpful... More

We needed somewhere to stay for a weekend break in Venice and found Ai Tagliapietra on Tripadvisor. As so many other reviewers have noted, Lorenzo is such as great host and so helpful. The location of the B&B is perfect for exploring Venice being only a few minutes walk from St.Marks Square and the water front. The room we stayed... More

My husband & I had a comfortable stay @ Lorenzo's B & B for two nights. 1. Location - The location was really great, it was strategically located near the heart of Venice which is the Cathedral and the plaza, just need to walk few metres and voila! --you can see the piazza & basilica. For first timers, it was... More

Lorenzo is an awesome host who meets you at the dock to escort you to his place. Good thing because we would never have found it on our own, through all of the winding streets. Comfortable, modern accommodations, with excellent wifi. Lorenzo's suggestions for the best gelato were spot on - inexpensive and delicious. Great map provided, so we always... More

Like most places in Venice (other than the basilica) this place can be a little difficult to find in the dark, but if you take note of a couple of landmarks on the surrounding streets you should be fine. Lorenzo is a very amenable host, and as well as a good location for a decent price you get the extra... More

If you want to overnight in the heart of Venice, stay in a nice place and don't pay a fortune for it- that's a great choice. Our room was clean and equipped with a a big and comfortable bed (as in the photos). You have your private bathroom with a shower and can feel like at home. If you need... More

Prime location, just around the corner from San marco square, clean, welcoming. Would not hesitate to recommend or return. Lorenzo makes you feel welcome and gives you top tips (water taxis etc). Great stay

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood 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.
