This B&B is located about 15min walk from Piazza San Marco, a scenic walk along the Grand Canal, and two minutes from the Giardino waterbus stop. We arrived late at night and Ciprea picked us up at the waterbus stop. We stayed in the ground floor room across the hall from the kitchen, with our own bathroom down the hall.... More

Please accept my apologies about the noise of my kids , some times it's really hard to stop them ! By the way I really did not realize you was not able to remove 2 the hooks to open the 2 windows in the room ... sometime people like more privacy and hold the shutterns closed... Anyway it was a...

I had no hesitation in booking this marvellous b and b because many reviews were very positive: quiet area, excellent hosts, not far from Piazza San Marco, family oriented, close to restaurants and traghetto stop... When we arrived we found ms Ciprea waiting for us at the traghetto stop and helped us with luggage and showed us the way. Very... More

Ciprea B&B is a lovely place to stay in Venice. Located in an authentic Venetian residential neighbourhood, it is quiet, peaceful, and away from the chaotic summer crowds. We stayed in the upstairs room (Oriente) for 2 nights from 15 to 17 July, and it was clean, neat and comfy. Wifi connection was good. Ciprea and Davide are warm and... More

Our family of four stayed here for 3 nights in early July after another B&B referred us when they were full. We mainly dealt w/ Ciprea who was a friendly kind woman and set up a lovely table each morning for breakfast. We got directions from Davide and we used Google maps to find the house. Davide offered to pick... More

The slow boat (vaporetto#1 make sure you are going San Marco via Rialto) down the Grand Canal leaves you at the stop "Giardini"(it's the 3rd stop after Piazza San Marco) which is about a 5 minute walk to this B&B run by a husband and wife. You should call David who comes and gets you because their B&B is difficult... More

Ciprea B&B is great! I sent an enquiry to a B&B but it's fully booked so the owner recommended Ciprea B&B. They proactively reached out to me and everything just fell into place then :) Davide was very prompt in email communication prior to our arrival in Venice, and was very helpful in providing directions to get to their place...

It is 2 min walk from varpetto stop Giardini and about 15 min walk from St. Marco plaza(2 stops on varpetto) Our room was on the main level, it was big and comfortable, the only inconvenience was that our bathroom was in main hallway. If we come... More

My wife and I wanted to take a last-minute visit to Venice but nearly gave up after seeing the limited availability and high-season prices for just about every hotel & B&B around (we were used to March prices and our visit was late April). A fully-booked B&B we inquired at suggested we try Ciprea B&B, and we were delighted we... More

When traveling, I love to stay with the locals. Ciprea & Davide were great to us and offered their wonderful home to stay in. The area was very nice & away from the crowds. A two minute walk from the vaporetto.

The room was spacious and well furnished, and the bathroom was also good-sized and nicely appointed. This B&B is comprised of two rooms in the home of a young family. The proprietor Davide and his wife are very nice. This is in an authentic Venetian neighborhood away from the main tourist area, but relatively accessible from the main vaporetto line.... More

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.
