The area
Address
Neighborhood: Castello
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.

During my last night in Venice I decided to go look for a special calligraphy nib. I'd been looking for it forever, but just couldn't find it. The sweet Sofia that was working that night searched through everything they had in the store to find me the nib, and afterwards spent an hour helping me, answering my questions, and even showing me how to use some of the tools! We ended up staying for over an hour, even when it was already after closing time. I would definitely visit again!

Scriba is definately a shop you need to visit when you are in Venice. I bought some lovely gifts which included wax seales, wax in many colours, wax spoons, stamps, pens etc. This shop is a haven for artists as well. The owner and his assistant is wonderful to deal with and speak English well.
Lots of paper, bookes, wax seals with wood or Murano glass, pens and more. I will always return here.

My wife bought one of the many beautiful, characteristically Venetian pens sold by Scriba. A couple of months after our return to the UK, there was a problem with one of the components of the pen. I managed to contact Scriba by email, and received a reply within 24 hours. The component was replaced and sent, carefully packaged, free of charge and with an extra refill. We were very impressed and very grateful.

My daughter couldn’t wait to visit this store and it did not disappoint! Their shop window is filled with beautiful wax stamps and wax colors and gorgeous journals! I did not get the name of the lady who helped us but she was so patient with us and showed us so many great options for personalizing our pen/ink/wax set we picked out! We were able to try the different styles of pens and it was a neat experience for all of us as none of us had ever used a feather pen before! My daughter (10) got a purple feather pen and I chose the Murano glass pen and stamp set! Everything in this store is absolutely beautiful and affordable prices! This would make a very unique gift for someone special in your life or as a nice gift for yourself!
