this is a good place to stop for a snack or lunch, or, as we did, just have a glass of wine while sheltering from the sun and soaking up the beautiful views of the lagoon. Great people watching on this promenade area of Venice!

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
