Most visitors, who choose Venice as their holiday destination, choose accommodation in the very central areas. Those who wish to discover the “real” Venice, however, prefer booking an apartment off the beaten track, away from the tourist crowds, shops and restaurants which are typical of the centre. For this type of traveller, we suggest renting an apartment in the Arsenale – Biennale district of Venice, a tranquil area in the Castello district, which is known as the “tail of Venice”. Far from the tourist crowds in the centre, it is an elegant, residential area from where one has a stunning view of the southern part of the lagoon and the islands of San Giorgio, La Grazia and San Servolo
Via Garibaldi, the principal street in the district, is renowned for its traditional shops and restaurants, which are far from the “tourist trap” concept bars in the centre.
