What you should know about Castello

Just moments away from the bustling Piazza San Marco, its calm, narrow streets, terracotta houses, and beautiful churches make Castello one of the most charming neighborhoods in Venice. And it’s varied too—the west end stretches into central Venice and offers fine art and architecture as you walk the tourist trail, while the east side of the neighborhood takes visitors just off the beaten track and gives a glimpse into the lives of ordinary Venetians.

Hotels in Castello

While Castello hotels cover mainly the mid-range and upscale segments of the market, the selection of discount hotels in Castello makes this neighborhood affordable on most budgets. Among the luxury hotels in Castello is the Hotel Danieli. This establishment, steeped in grandeur, sits on the edge of the Grand Canal. The inspiring beauty of this magnificent hotel is matched by the excellent facilities, which include 2 restaurants and massage rooms. Lower down the price range, the Hotel Savoia and Jolanda is highly rated for its comfort and service, and offers a rooftop terrace to unwind on and admire the beauty of the neighborhood by both day and night.

Things to see in Castello

Just walking along the streets of this quaint neighborhood is entertainment enough but, when the sun gets a little too much, head to San Giorgio degli Schiavoni gallery to see monks escaping the wrath of lions in what is surely some of Carpaccio’s best artwork. Also worth a visit here is the church on the small island of San Pietro, which is linked to Castello by a bridge. San Pietro was once an important part of historic Venice and the church was the city’s cathedral until 1807 when Saint Mark’s Basilica became the seat of the Patriarch of Venice. Today it displays monuments of historical value for visitors and locals alike to admire. For those more technically minded, a visit to the Arsenale, Venice’s historic shipyard in Castello, often provides interesting opportunities for exploration after a walk through the grand and beautiful entrance, while the Museo Storico Navale naval museum brings Venice’s maritime history to life.

Good for those on a budget

For many travelers, Venice can seem a little bit pricey. But a trip here does not have to break the bank, and one way to save a little cash is by staying in Castello. Wherever you go in Venice, you will be surrounded by beautiful sights and sounds, and Castello is no different. Cheap Castello hotels are easy to find and the neighborhood is home to affordable attractions and budget eateries that make it a great choice for those who want to see this beautiful city without the hefty price tag.

How to get to Castello

Traveling to Venice is easy; there are regular flights from across Europe. Those traveling from further afield can layover at Rome or another European hub before flying into Venice Marco Polo Airport. Land and water buses are available to take you direct to Castello. Good train links with other parts of Italy exist, but cars are not permitted into the city beyond the entrance to Venice at Piazzale Roma. The vaporetto water buses are the simplest way to Castello from the Piazzale Roma. For less hurried visitors, walking is also a convenient and pleasant way to travel to Castello and around the neighborhood itself.
