A gem of a hotel in San Marco, Venice! Our family of four (two teenagers) spent a wonderful weekend exploring Venice from the very centrally located Locada Al Leon. After travelling by train we followed the hotel's directions and easily arrived at St. Mark's Square....More
The entrance to this hotel is 10 yards off of a very lively square in Venice. Some reviewers are complaining about the hotel facade??? This is crazy talk. This hotel is in one of the best locations in Venice. If you are wearing the wrong...More
If price is a concern, one can still get excellent lodging with a wonderful location. Locanda Al Leon is very close to the Grand Canal and the water "taxis." It's also very close to San Marco. The small room is attractive and clean. The service...More
We have just returned from a 5 night stay at the Locanda al Leon. Our first trip to Venice. The water bus from the airport dropped us off pretty much outside, then just a quick walk from St Marco vaporetto stop and you're there! The...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 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.
