Small and cosy loft in the heart of Venice at 10 minutes walking from S. Mark's Square.
Of all Venice's districts Castello is probably the most varied one. To the west you have all the glamour of grand tourist Venice. Some of the town's very finest art, architecture and monuments can be found here, as well as functional sites like the hospital. Over to the east are large 'normal', fairly working-class residential areas. We like both sides; the fact that even the grand Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo is slightly off the main tourist trail for day-trippers, the ordinary Italian bars along Via Garibaldi sparsely-populated with ageing men watching football, just like in any town, the many different kinds of picturesque that you'll find when exploring the area.
