This was our first time to Venice and we wanted to have a cultural experience without paying 5 star prices. First with the positive: The room that we stayed in looks like the photos. There is a good air conditioner in the room, a mini frig and the bed was comfortable, but pillows are hard and flat. It was a... More

Me and my girlfriend came across this restaurant by chance after looking for a while and we were not disappointed. I had spaghetti pomodoro and she had the ravioli in veggie sauce. Neither of us were disappointed and enjoyed our pasta. So much so we went later on and tried something different, I had pene in a curry sauce and... More

My family and I had a stop over in Venive and spent 3 nights at this Taverna. It is based over the Restraunt and I think only has 3 rooms. We required a room with space for 4 of us and we were welcomed by very plessant staff and the room was excellent with space for a very large double... More

We have booked 2 nights at this B&B hotel in the heart of Venice. However we cannot consider this is a hotel by any standard as it has only 4 rooms and is situated on the 1st floor of a restaurant. The rooms are big and reasonably clean with separate air conditioning. Actually Taverna San Lio is run by the... More

Stayed about a year ago. A small b&b above a little cafe / restaurant. Good location, but a little tricky to find at the first time of asking. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was very basic. Overall pretty decent value for money given prices in venice. Is this the smartest accommodation in the world - no, but it... More

This was a return trip to Venice and we managed to find the restaurant we had enjoyed a few years ago. We chose the Tourist Menu as it is such good value 19 Euros and the restaurant was just as we remembered it. The staff are very attentive and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend this restaurant - first... More

Bottom line: while the room was decent, this property was falsely advertised and not at all what I expected. Superb location. The Taverna San Lio is not a hotel, an inn, or a B and B. It is 4 renovated rooms on the second floor of a somewhat dilapidated building. The room itself was decent, and breakfast was OK, but... More

Our room was spacious and clean and was on a lovely alley a bit away from the crowds but an easy walk to the Rialto Bridge and San Marcos Square. The restaurant below served an included continental breakfast with delicious home made rolls and pastry but it was minimal with no protein. We ate dinner and lunch at the restaurant... More

Staying in Castello

Neighborhood Profile
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.
