DISTRICT OF CASTELLO, VENICE’S HISTORIC CENTRE

The green tail of Venice, Biennale d’Arte and Arsenale di Venezia

If Venice vaguely resembles the shape of a fish, then Castello is the fish’s tail.  Located in the most easterly part of the city, it is the biggest and most diverse of the 6 districts and it is here that the Arsenale is found, an ancient naval shipyard, as well as being a fortified centre hidden behind its high towers. It is also the greenest part of Venice because of the Napoleonic Gardens, the city’s largest park which is home, amongst others, to the famous Biennale d’Arte di Venezia. The imposing Basilica of San Pietro di Castello, an ancient episcopal seat before the Basilica of San Marco, is well worth a visit as is the wonderful Chiesa di San Zaccaria which contains a stunning Madonna and child painting by Bellini.  If you continue along the Riva degli Schiavoni, you will enjoy a delightful walk reaching Piazza San Marco in 10 minutes.
